"I have no regrets; my past has made me who I am." That thought, and numerous others like it, certainly confused my thinking about the subject of regrets. For that reason, I had low expectations for a book about regrets. However, as I got into it, I found it incredibly liberating that this book normalizes regret. When I read, "Researchers say that children as young as nine express regret," it finally dawned on me that regret is an unavoidable consequences of living in a fallen world. With the problem established and acknowledged, it was helpful to read the chapters on spiritual regrets, relationship regrets, health regrets, financial regrets, and purpose regrets. Though it's hard to imagine that this is the only book that deals realistically with regrets, it is the first that I have come across that is entirely devoted to the subject.
