Exercise #230: Self Knowledge
We all have regrets. (If you have none, I don’t want to know!) We also have all done things we don’t regret.
For today’s self-knowledge exercise, find a regret. Got it? Now show us this regret in the first section of your SUB.
Then, for the second section of your SUB, relate your regret to one of your non-regrets. Now show us this one. The two must be related in some manner.
Clear as mud? As an example, I could write about the regret of not marrying my first love, and then the non-regret of marrying my husband.
As always, you are welcome to put a character into this situation.
Critiquers, see if you can spot the relationship.
Word limit: 1200 for the two sections combined

This self-knowledge exercise will make you examine memories for connections between them and perhaps make you realize regrets and non-regrets aren’t always what we think.
