Was just watching The Good Place and one thing that has stayed with me from a recent episode is this: "The most important shot in golf is the next one". No matter how badly you screwed up once (or even more than that), the next action you undertake has the potential to rectify things (if not immediately, then at least to move things in the right direction). It's understandable that you feel you've made too many mistakes and it would not be possible to make up for them now, but you gotta take the first step, if you can. If not for everything that constitutes "too much", maybe for a few of them. Take care!
I think somewhere or the other we all wish to relive at least one phase of our life where we think we were the most happy or when we could have made better decisions. But then this is all wishful thinking, and we need to realise that whatever happened in our past, both the good and the bad, has actually shaped how we are currently. It has made us have amazing memories, learn great lessons and also made us evolve and mature. So although we have a tendency to wish there was a time machine or we keep romanticizing our past, but we need to realise that the journey called life will have many twists and turns , and no matter how much we would want to start our journey again, we would always have covered a great distance from where we started. So instead of reliving the last 10 years in your mind, try to make the next 10 years of your life turn out better with all the lessons and experiences you have till now. The moment you stop looking back and start looking forward to the future with optimism, you will naturally start doing things to shape your future better. So keep moving forward and enjoy the roller coaster ride called life 😊😀
No one goes through life without some regrets.
No one is perfect. Everyone is bound to make mistakes that they would like to undo.
So you are not alone in this. Its but human to feel like this.

We all understand our own doings, our actions better in the hindsight. The mistakes made, how better things could have been and so on. But if we are just stuck there, it's like being the "Prisoner of the Past", almost like self confinement. We cannot change a thing about the past, and this also make us worry about our future that if we couldn't do it then so how will I do it later and now we are at a loss of time. These thoughts are almost like a vicious cycle we engage in over and over again. When all this mayhem is going in the head, we forget the only moment we can take action in, is the PRESENT, now let's take an example if you want to be the number one badminton player in the world, the first time you played, you were not good but then you played along, for future to be brighter you will use the present and play better, here you would not want to the past as your skills with practise made you a refined player, and your past only taught you where you need to train more. So past is a life lesson, not a prison or even as some people see it a cluster of mistakes one carries as a baggage. Had it not been for your past, you would not have been WISER, so keep the past as the storehouse of wisdom. Take action based on what did or did not workout.
And per being late, which train are we about to catch that we are late for?
Remember, even if you wanted do a course of 2 years and you feel you may be X years old, and too old to do the course, two year later you will be X+2 years old, and yet be as it is you are right now and WITHOUT the degree or the course or the skill set at hand.
So all this states nothing but the URGENCY to ACT NOW, so that later when the present becomes the past you won't repent on the loss time again, rather revel in, using the time at hand more productively and not just staying in as a prisoner of the past.
