They say we should have no regrets in life, but we do. We regret chances not taken, or chances missed. We regret letting go of important things and holding on to things that don't matter. But we just have to pick ourselves up and carry on, making sure we have learnt our lesson. And try not to be too sad.

How do you put new learning into practice? You try to understand what you need in your life. You try to stand firm and insist on your needs. But old habits die hard and it is so easy to slip back into patterns of behaviour that you thought you had left behind. It is one thing to take care of yourself and another to be selfish and not consider another's feelings and needs. All you can do is pick yourself up, try to make amends and be determined not to revert to old patterns of behaviour in the future. Oh and not hate yourself too much for your mistakes.
