Hatred arises when you refuse to forgive others, while regret arises when you refuse to forgive yourself.
“How could someone like me screw up like that?” That’s regret.
Instead of scolding yourself, tell yourself, “I made a mistake.
I won’t make the same mistake again.” Accept that you make mistakes and then move on.
-Ven. Pomnyun Sunim
