Should I or should I not? There’s really only one way to find out.
Often times, following the dilemma of choosing between two diverging decisions (ie. being “caught at a crossroads”), we can think to ourselves, “man, I shouldn’t have done that!”
You did the best you could with the information that you had on hand at that moment in time.
One thing we tend to forget is that, when looking back with 20-20 hindsight, everything appears clear. Only by looking back are we ever really able to know what we should or could have done, prior. However, did you have that same information with you when making your decision in the first place? No. You did the best you could with the information that you had on hand at that moment in time.
Granted, before you get too overzealous about this idea, you should also heed this word of caution... When wielding the paradigm of "no regrets", one can easily be seduced into using it as an excuse for absolving negative future behaviour.
Simply because you should have "no regrets" does not absolve you from accurately and objectively navigating your situation with your best judgement. No regrets isn't about acting recklessly, it's about never looking back with anguish.
—navigate wisely and never look back... You just might regret it!
