“...And then I took a step back and looked again. This time I saw something else, it was clear I’d been mistaken.” (me)
Ever had an experience when you made a decision based on what you thought happened only to realise later that’s not what actually happened? I know I have.
Regret can be a humbling thing. Much better to step back and take another look at things before you make up your mind.
Try to see a different perspective. It can’t hurt, or at least it’ll probably hurt a lot less than regret. What do you think?
