I don’t like to call them regrets.

“You never talk about your regrets. Do you have any?” “I guess, but I don’t like to call them regrets. I refer to them as wonderings.” “Wonderings?” “Because I always wonder what would have happened if things had played out differently. But to name my past decisions ‘mistakes’ or ‘regrets’ is foolish. If I chose something, it was the right choice at the time. We never purposefully make mistakes; we only call them that in hindsight.”

And so I regret to have caused so many misunderstandings. I regret a lot of things. And the worst things are the one, where I never had a possibility to say I´m sorry. And at the moment I ask myself, whether I should not have much more to regret, of which I know nothing.
    But I do not regret decisions I have consciously made. Because they were well intended in the past, and can only may be be regarded as a mistake today.
