The Sixth Tuesday
We Talk About Regrets
MS: Do you think it's possible to avoid regrets?
GC: No. I think it's possible to choose to not regret. But I don't think it's possible to avoid them completely. You will be confronted with them. At this point in my life, I'm choosing to not regret. I could easily regret the last sixteen years of my life if I wanted to. But they have taken me where I am, and I believe I'm where God wants me to be, so what is there to regret?
GC: It is a choice though.
MS: If you choose not to regret, are they still there underneath? Or does that make them disappear?
GC: I don't know. Regret is akin to doubt, in my mind. In the same way that faith is to reality. If I choose to not regret, I can to a large degree avoid doubt. And if I choose to have faith, I can to a large degree avoid the harsh reality that would otherwise engulf me.
MS: That was very profound.
GC: It sounded like it...
MS: I don't know where that came from...you must have been drinking some coffee this morning.
GC: Two cups.
