I Shudda Listened
My daughter made some money in college by tutoring the basketball players. One guy kept saying, “Shudda.” She told him there was no such word, and that he meant, “Should have.”
He said there certainly is such a word, “Shuda.”
She told him there certainly was not such a word, and even if there were it would be spelled with two d’s!
Regrets can kill you. First, you feel you missed an opportunity, and then you continually beat yourself up over it. Just learn from such errors or oversights and move on. You can’t change the wake of the boat, you can only change the current direction.
Stop regurgitating regrets. It’s a waste of time and energy. What you shudda done was just learn from them and forged ahead.
