About Underwater

“Have no regrets in life, just lessons learned”.
-Unknown 

We both drowned under the wave of words we weren’t saying.
Under the actions we never took.
Under the goals we never reached.
Under the promises we swore to keep but never kept.

Under the hope we never held on to.
Under the sadness we always felt.
Under the happiness we constantly aimed for but never reached.
Under the anger that drove us to do bad things.

Under the patience we lost so easily.
Under the fear who tangled us and kept us a lifetime in our comfort zone.
Under the risks we were too afraid to take when adventure called.
Under the shallow things we never clarified.

Under the points and statements we never expressed.
Under the grudges we stubbornly held.
Under the forgiveness we never gave to those who deserved it.
Under the things we forgot but should have never been forgotten.

Under the silence taking over our words when we feared to speak up.
Under the ego that murdered most of our relationships.
Under the jealousy that kept us wanting much more and made us forget gratitude.
Under the small unimportant things we wasted our energy on.

Under the loyal people whom we never gave what they really deserve.
Under the double-faced, undeserving people whom we gave our all to.
Under the stars we never counted.
Under the forest we never enjoyed because we kept all our focus on the trees.

Under the weight of other people’s problems we carried, when we struggled to carry our own.
Under the times we denied our feelings.
Under the moment we said to ourselves: “I can’t take it anymore” .
We both drowned under all our regrets.

When people take responsibility for their feelings, words and actions, I’m pretty sure that they exclude taking responsibility of their regrets.
Few are those who admit having regrets.

EGO! What have you done to all of these people to shut them up? How did you mess them so much to the point they always see themselves as the only right person in the room! You have elevated them to the point where they don’t take responsibility for anything. Especially for the things they did wrong. However, there’s a thin line between having regrets while doing nothing about it and assuming your wrongs while doing anything in your power to do them right.

Keep yourself far away from regret. You see, the biggest punishment someone can give to themselves is being stuck in the past. It paralyses them and makes it impossible to reach the future.
Regret after regret, not taking anything out of the experiences of life. This way of life can only drown you.

To everyone with tons of regrets, I beg you to stop drowning in them and to find your way back to the surface: learn from your mistakes.

Leave your past in the depth of the ocean and swim back again to the surface where you’ll meet your future. After all, the thing that irritates regrets the most is when you start to figure everything out.
