Some of the goals of therapy
To find ways to love and accept love
How to stop getting stuck in feeling bad about yourself
To create a fuller and happier life
To find ways out of helplessness and the feelings of being overwhelmed
To find a way out of the unnecessary pains, sadness, and losses in our lives

Regrets are part of living a life. Making choices grounds us in reality. We make mistakes and also we can't have it all. As we review the arc of our lives, learning from our mistakes can help lessen the pain of our regrets. Yet, tolerating the pain of regrets allows our minds (our consciousness) to stay more open. Of course each of us has a finite amount of time to come to terms with the effects of choices.
