Things I hear from clients all the time:
“I should have been a ___________.”
“I wish I didn’t stay at this job so long.”
“If only I had known.”
“It’s too late now.”
Regret is like a bitter root in your tea.
Its purpose is to help you make better tea,
not remind me you what a terrible tea-maker you are.
Acknowledge the bitterness.
Then go out into the garden and try something else.
