Is It Possible to Live Life Without Any Regrets?

Is it possible to live through life till the end without any regrets? Well, I am personally convinced that the answer is 'no'. Before I move on, let me give you my definition of the word 'regret'. Regret occurs when a person feels or thinks he should do something but does not do it or when he feels or thinks he should not do something but does it anyway. Having said so, it is important for us to note that a person may not feel regret instantly or almost instantly. It is usually when he reflects on his life that he will feel regret.

Why is it that it is not possible to live through life till the end without any regrets? The reason is simple : We live in a fallen world with imperfect people. Pause with me here for a moment and imagine a perfect world. Do you think that it is possible to live with regrets in a perfect world? If you give this matter some serious thought, you would come to the conclusion that it is not possible. It is only because of man's fallen nature and the fact that we live in an imperfect world that we will inevitably live through life with some, if not a lot, of regrets.

Since the time I was a teenager, there have been moments and seasons in my life when I experience regrets. If there were a time machine, I would love to return to those seasons and moments and live them right. But the fact of the matter is that I can never return to those moments and seasons because nobody will ever be able to invent a time machine. If I had learnt to watch what I dwelt on in my mind, what I said and what I did in the past, I believe with all my heart that I would have few regrets in my life right now.

Why is that so? First of all, I believe that whatever I dwell on in my mind, it will become manifested in my life in due course. There were times when what I dwelt on in my mind became harsh realities in my life. There were a few times when I hurled certain hurtful words at someone whose relationship I only learn to treasure after she has passed on. There were times when I didn't want to study hard and as a result, I got poor grades in school. Can you relate to what I am saying here?

To conclude, I would like to say that living with regrets in our lives is something that is inevitable. We can only look forward to a life with no regrets when Christ returns.
