Though I’m not a big fan of self-help books, I’m glad that I took the time to read Hamilton Beazley’s book. A professor of psychology and a leading self-help expert, Beazley nourishes our spiritual growth and helps those of us who are filled with regret, remorse and self-recrimination for things done or left undone.
“We all have regrets,” Beazley says. “As we grow older and more fully appreciate the mistakes we have made and the opportunities we have missed, the more there is to regret, at least potentially.” Whereas “many of us ignore these potential regrets and let the real ones go, . . . some of us hold onto deep and consuming regrets that burden our lives, cripple our relationships, and hobble our future.”
