We often look back on the past and think “If only I had…” or “If only I hadn’t…” of “I should’ve done this or that.”
We yearn for the magical ability to travel back in time and undo the mistakes we made or avoid the terrible things that happened to us.

In the video above, I explore the MYTH of regret – I’ll address 3 key fantasies that keep us stuck in the past and unable to move forward

- That a different (better) past would end up in a better life
- That you aren’t doing the best you can do
