Regrets and their cousins, resentments,
are a huge cause of self-inflicted suffering.

to gain freedom from regrets about what you did or did not do,
and freedom from resentment over what others did or did not do.

to put the past in the past where it belongs.
However, sometimes a simple symbolic act can help immeasurably
to grant ourselves freedom from the past.
