Word It for May

If only I could unwind the little arrows on my left wrist.

To when?

It all depends.

When did it all start? Do I wish to go back to that second in which a decision was reached that I now wish had gone to its counterpart? Or earlier, when the whole incident was truly started?

Many times in life we find ourselves cringing with what might be mild regret over an action, something said or an absence of that which should have been. Sometimes the feeling is not mild at all and it haunts us for months, years or a lifetime. It might be positive or negative, life-changing or inconsequential to all but us. In either case, regret is something we all feel at some point and we have to learn to deal with it.

By doing nothing.

By taking the necessary steps to fix it, so that we can forget.

Regret is the Word It for May

With that said, please read the specifications for submittal, and go create based on regret.
Word-its will be updated on a weekly basis.

Oops, I just realized that I apparently misunderstood the concept of this month's Word It.

Sometimes I just skim things; I glanced at the page and saw "Word It for May is regret" and thought: "Cool. There are lots of things that I find regrettable." So I went off, whipped up a couple of things, and sent them in. But rereading your post just now (more carefully), I see that you were referring to personal regret. My two efforts were articulated around global regret.

So please feel free not to use my "global regret" Word Its, lest they unwittingly perform the very thing they purport to be about.

Word It is your interpretation of the word, not mine. The fact that my intro is more on the personal side does not mean that any other meaning to the word is wrong. Unless I wrote a very extensive introduction I will never be able to give you all of the meanings at the same time, and truthfully I don’t want too. I am much more interested in seeing how far you can take my intro and the selected word.
