We're human. We make mistakes and regret the choices that we end up taking. So it's okay. It's okay to feel regret once in a while. That just proves that we are still human when we feel some sort of negative emotion instead of positive ones.
There was a time this week when I realized that regret wasn't a thing I felt often. It was a while since we last met, and it felt weird. I was under this negative cloud that made my judgments and further decisions throughout the week something I regretted even more–talk about adding to the pile of negativity.
But I just sat there and accepted my regrets and bad decisions. Instead of pushing them away and asking myself, "Why did I do it this way? Why didn't I do it that way?" I just said, "I did it. It happened. It's okay." And one morning I awoke and went through my day until I realized that the heavy guilty feeling wasn't there. It disappeared into the abyss.
Accept your negative feelings when they come out, and do what they say, "ride the wave." Having negative emotions prove that we can't always be positive, and accepting these emotions prove that it's okay to sit and sulk for a bit until your light comes back to shine even brighter.
I dare y'all to wear a the brightest color you have in your wardrobe, and rock it!
You'll feel ridiculous, yes, but trust me, it'll be worth feeling silly.
