    Do We Confuse The Issue?

    I often think that we think that we may regret something we did or didn't do in the past. When the truth is .. we actually feel guilty about an occurrence but instead choose to pass it on as a regret. The difference between the two is this - Regret: occurs when an unfortunate...

    Losing Values

    Giving to much can result in heartbreak and betrayal, I gave to much and got to much taken away. Presents and gifts taken by people who act liked they cared but in reality they just threw it away as if money had no value.

    Regrets Are Lessons Learned
