Making mistakes is something absolutely natural for people and you will hardly meet a person who has always been right and have never regretted any of his or her decisions. Feeling regret is normal, however, some people tend to feel it to an excessive extent not being able to move on accepting the fact that something has already been done and it cannot be changed, however, the future is waiting for you and you can make it better considering your unpleasant experience.
Here is the list of some mistakes which is absolutely normal to make. Let them teach you and help you to be happier in the future.
Choosing a wrong profession
One of the most popular mistake people might make is choosing a wrong profession. Actually, only a very small fraction of people are genuinely happy about what they are doing and can call it their passion. Others are just satisfied with it for example because of the material rewards they are getting however cannot tell it is exactly something they are passionate about whereas many other people are just suffering because of their current profession. It might happen that after graduation you just find out that you absolutely hate your occupation and either push yourself into doing it or resign from doing it completely choosing something which can be done without having any particular skills.
Do not blame yourself for making a wrong choice. It is rather difficult to find something you will really enjoy during your entire life, whereas the modern life will hardly let you do it in the first place. The market of occupation is changing extremely rapidly with one jobs being created and others being absolutely out of demand even though they used to be pretty popular. In addition to it, education is becoming more and more affordable no matter how much time or money you have.
The modern world requires being flexible and ready to learn new things at any point of your life, so there is no need to feel bad about making a mistake with your profession. You have all the chances to get your dream job.
Choosing a wrong partner
If you happen to get into a romantic relationship which is now over no matter whether it was only on the stage of dating or you have already spent many years together in a marriage, this does not mean you have no chances for happier future. Actually, your chances are even higher as you now know better what was making you unhappy in the relationship and which of your behavioural patterns contributed to the break up. This is an extremely crucial life experience which will help you to build a more harmonious relationship in the future.
Losing an important person
Unfortunately, no matter how much we love someone, this person can still leave us no matter whether it is a friend or a partner. Sometimes we are responsible for such a situation. Something in our behaviour made this person unhappy. It might happen that there are no more chances to make this person come back to us which might be an extremely painful realisation. Yet, what you should do in such a situation is trying to treat it as a lesson for future so that you will not repeat your mistakes and not lose anyone you love any more.
Resigning from your dream
When your dream leaves you or you have to abandon it, you might feel as much empty and unhappy as if it were a breakup with someone you love. Sometimes the current situation does not allow us to work on the realisation of our dreams and sometimes we ourselves stop believing into our dreams and have to resign from them. There might also be a situation in which we encounter a problem and it makes us lose our confidence up to the extent when we stop believing in the possibility of fulfilling our dream.
All of these scenarios are normal as well as the fact we ourselves are changing as well and might not dream about the same things for years.
If you have lost your dream, do not find your life senseless and less important since you are still getting a lot of experience.
Purchasing something you cannot afford
Anyone might feel a strong urge to purchase something one actually should not purchase because it is not a sensible thing today right now regarding the financial situation. Some people have enough will power to resign from this urge, whereas others might find it rather difficult and spend the last money on it. Furthermore, there also people who can even borrow money for purchasing something they want to have so much.
Needless to say such an approach is something you should work on and not let to steer your decisions as it can cause a lot of trouble in the future whereas the satisfaction coming from getting the thing you wanted so much will not last for a long time.
Yet, do not hate yourself if it happened to you. Again let this behaviour be a lesson for you and since now be more aware when it comes to your expenses.
