Regrets are mistakes that memories make

这是我喜欢的英文歌曲《Someone Like You》中的歌词。

最近因为参加F.I.R.的演唱会,再次听到了这首歌。每次想起的,都是这段歌词。

但是今天才真正地明白它的意思。

有些时候,我们会后悔过去的某些决定——是否不应该分手?是否应该回头?是否应该挽留?

会后悔,只是因为不记得当初为何分手、为何掉头、为何让他走。

所以很多情侣分分合合,只因为太容易受伤,也太容易忘记。每次的重来,都在吵闹中想起当时为什么分开。分开后因为忘了吵闹的理由,所以觉得后悔。

没什么好后悔的。


That's the line from one of my favorite songs "Someone Like You".

I was reminded of the song because of the F.I.R. concert last weekend. And everytime it comes to my mind, it's always this line.

But it's only today that I truly understand what it meant.

Sometimes we look back at our lives and wonder - did we give up too fast? Did we leave too early? Should we look back then?

We have regrets, because our memories make the mistake of forgetting the reason that led to our decisions.

Some couples break up and patch up time and time again, because they get hurt too easily, and forget what caused their pain too quickly. Every time they start over and fight, they are reminded of why they broke up in the first place. The reason they felt regret was because they forgot why they fought in the first place.

There's nothing worth regretting.
