Her footsteps heavy with sorrow, Erika walked away from a lush garden of blossoms. The vibrant petals were silent witnesses to her heartache, and seemed to bow in empathy.

At 30 she realised her life could have been much more meaningful. The last 10 years seemed to have gone to waste. She’d taken a path different from the one she’d initially envisioned. She’d meant it to be a temporary deviation until things came together but it had become her way of life.

It was too late to change course.

Her gaze remained fixed on the ground, her eyes tracing the delicate veins of fallen leaves. Perhaps she was seeking solace in the earth, hoping it would absorb her pain — the pain of regret.

Erika is me, Erika is you. In fact, she is all of us who have lived or are still living with the pain of regret.

In an age of information overload, with advice readily available at our fingertips, it seems illogical that anyone would have regrets. Countless stories exist of seasoned individuals offering wisdom to their younger selves, but that wisdom often goes unheeded.
