Regret is a false narrative you apply to a situation after the fact to avoid having to admit you are a slave to circumstances, a leaf in the wind. Even if you feel you made a specific decision at one point, the influences behind the decision you made had already been set by circumstances and prior experiences - there was no choice. Sure, people find it "motivating" to pretend they have self-agency, etc. but it doesn't match up with the facts. If we're so free to choose, why do we end up in bad situations as a result of those choices? A choice where you can't grasp the consequences of the options isn't a choice, it's random or it's predetermined.
