Though we're often taught to live life without regret, Kathryn Schulz encourages individuals to embrace regret. Using a tattoo as an example, the speaker challenges humans' perceptions about regret and failure.
One of the noblest things we can do is move forward from failure and to live without regret. Schulz quotes Lady Macbeth's famous saying "what's done is done." She encourages individuals to learn to live with regret not without it. Regret requires imagination and agency and the more that one has of each, the more regret they will harbor.
Kathryn Schulz encourages individuals to learn to love the flawed and imperfect things we create and to forgive ourselves for creating them. Regret does not remind us that we did bad but instead reminds us that we can do better.
