How Compassion Heals Regret Video By Fred Kofman
Philosopher and Vice President at Linkedin

“He who spends time regretting the past loses the present and risks the future.” Quevedo

Prakash made a mistake. He realized it and learned his lesson. But guilt won’t leave him alone. Regret has turned unhealthy beating him up for past actions he cannot change. Worse yet, it has turned into shame, berating him for not “being” good enough.

In this coaching conversation, Prakash and I discuss how to distinguish healthy guilt from shame. We then work on how to end the unproductive cycle of self-blame through self-compassion. We learned that compassion heals regret.
