thatthis has be done before

I have no regrets, each mistake or poor decision taught me something or what not to do. I have issues with discernment. I am working to take a step back, studying human design and the solar plexus, mysticism and creative visualization.

I regret not being more of disciplinarian to my daughter. She needed me to be firmer and more consistent and I failed her. I regret it.

Stopping meds for 2yrs which made me lose 35 000$.

I regret saying i have no regrets my regrets. Another possible way to overcome the regrets instead of dwell on them, is to imagine that you had not made that mistake or choice, and pretend it didnt happen.

a new age person told me I could change the past by doing a ritual and visualization. It sorta helped with the trauma, but its crazy too I dont think we can change the past.

I did EMDR for a traumatic experience. It was an hour or so I completely forgot the horrible experience. But then there is the issue that memories never really leave us or something, I feel like my unconscience self repressed a lot of trauma and re-experienced them. For instance, a woman who keeps going back to her abusive husband could do EMDR to forget the horrible physical or violent things, but then she continues on and finds another man and has no idea if he’s abusive or not…is it better to forget the expeirence or learn and rise above it to not make the same mistakes…

My parents told me that the important is not the money wasted and that they paid my debts, but that I got back on meds which stopped me from trying to kill myself and from attacking my brothers with knives.

I don’t regret anything that was out of my control. However, I do have a small career regret. I turned down an accounting job right out of college. Ultimately it doesn’t really bother me bc I think I would still have ended up in the same mental hell hole.

so true, I have done similar things in active addiction but not related to abilify. Thats good ur parents were there to support you through that… My dad is proud of me. I am tired of letting him down with the relapses …if i could do the past few months over i would. TBH I regret winning the money at the casino, and he was right–money doesn’t make you happy.

Actually I dont regret winning the money, I regret spending it and telling anyone that I won.

My biggest regret for years was letting a particular girl get away. But I realised recently that she would just have helped me run from my problems instead of just facing them.
