If you could be completely honest with no regrets, what would you say and to whom?
I’ve been staring at this prompt for like an hour now and to be honest, I don’t really know what I could say to anyone, with no regrets, that wouldn’t burst into flames and result in everything turning to ash. Complete honesty, in my experience, isn’t something that most people can handle. And as for no regrets, everything anyone says always, always comes with consequences. This is so true that I can’t even write about what I would say if there were no regrets, because even if there were no consequences, I’d regret saying something that hurt someone’s feelings. Now I’m wondering if consequences and regrets are two different things. I could say something and not regret it, but there would be consequences. But could I say something that had consequences, and not regret it? No, not really, I’m not a sociopath, I like to avoid negative consequences when I can. And what are the odds that I’d say something, not regret it, and have that thing result in positive consequences? That would be nice, but I don’t think the world works that way.
Or maybe I’m just over-thinking this.
