Don't Dwell on Past Events
It is foolish to waste present moments regretting what is over and done with. Some people constantly say, "If only I hadn't gotten involved in this venture, I wouldn't have suffered." "If only I would have stayed an hour longer, this wouldn't have happened." We are not prophets and there is no possible way to know in advance exactly what will be. Try to protect yourself from harm, but realize that it is impossible to plan for every contingency.
