Looking back on situations in one’s life, one cannot help but to reflect on the changes that could have been made. One is always in regret and dreams an imaginary scenario about what could have happened and what should have happened.
Would it not be better to look into the past as appoint of information to adjust the present so in order not to repeat the same “mistakes”? (Unless addiction or other mental health issues cover elsewhere). Or look into the future and plan how to get to your point B? instead of dreaming that you have already reached your goal!
Most people want and live in frustration in wanting to achieve their goals. But the majority also do not know where they are at point A and struggle to reach point B.
Self-development is about being realistic and preparing for sacrifice. Take getting into Al -Jannah for instance. The same heart and mind set is till used to dream of Al- Jannah, even though there are set criteria, curricula and exams to get there.
The person who leaves things until the last minute and then takes the exam believes that with some possibility they will get the grades needed just like the person who studies hard and believes humbly that they will get the grades needed.
If the former continues with that heart and mind-set, will they be prepared for the final exam in the grave?
The standard one sets for themselves or has been set for them, by parents, peers, schooling, T.V, Life, will the same standard which will dictate how they live the rest of their life. For example, they will choose their spouse according to that belief, or their career, or how they deal with any relationship be it family, work or friendship.
The real questions are do you know your strengths and weaknesses, do you know why you choose what you choose? Do you know why you get angry? And I do not mean the justification one gives, “they said this or they did that” because one has to take responsibility for their action, everyone has a choice to react or not,

    Every day we are given a fresh start; another chance to move forward in our lives and accomplish the things we thrive to achieve day to day. A new day can also liberate us from our past mistakes and provide us with a chance to change our ways. We are all faced with misery and misfortune at points in our lives, some more than others. We must recognize that it is not the burden in itself that shapes who we are, but how well or how poorly we deal with the difficulties. Sometimes misfortunes can be seen in a negative light; because it seems unjust, therefore we response in a negative matter, and become negligent to change. Overcoming tragic events is what truly counts, for we are meant to live happily and in acceptance that there are things that we cannot change. In many cases, individuals seem to feel as though they’ve lost an amount so great that they are unable to free themselves of the pain. This perspective often leads to further suffering. A Temporary Matter by Jhumpa Lahou and Kiss Me by Andrew Pyper demonstrate a loss of identity, negligence towards communication, and eventually leading to the destruction of a relationship.…

    “An action causes a reaction”, states the famous Newton’s third law of motion. This is in fact, very true, not only just in Science, but in our everyday life as well. Therefore, there are consequences for every action that we have ever taken. The big question here, though, is just—do I regret some of the things I have done and the decisions that I have made when I realised the consequences? I do, for like any other human being, I am not perfect, and will never be, so of course, I have done many things which I regret a lot to this very day and truly wish that I could travel back in time to change them.…
