How to give over regret for really stupid decisions

I just posted a journal entry about my life. It's long.  I feel a lot of regret for making such bad decisions in my lifetime.  I am old enough to know better.  That's why it all hurts so much.

Life is getting harder.  It's getting sadder.

I've lost a lot in the past 2 years.  Money, friends, good boyfriends that would have been nice husbands.  I always wanted the excitment in life.  I pushed people away.  I didn't listen to good advice.  

I don't know how to pick myself up and dust myself off.  

Any words of wisdom?

yep whats the next verse...'start all over again,' throw yourself into working, culivate some new friends ,there is always some good man out there looking for a good woman,  dont think too much , it is often our thoughts that make us feel bad., take  pleasure in nature and animals they are a source of comfort for many people , get out walking, join some club.Most of all when you feel down think of something really pleasing and focus on it. the fact that you made a journal is a positive step once you reach the bottom there's only one way , float back up ...good luck

Do not let yesterday ruin today or govern tomorrow. Start anew and move forward. What you did is done so dont spend anymore precious time worrying about things past. Live, laugh and love. I hope things get better! hugs

Hope things are getting better. I wouldn't keep stressing about the past, there's nothing you can do about it now. Look at all the possibilities you have now though. There is so much at your finger tips. Keep yourself busy with hobbies and start there. Get into something you really like and just enjoy life. have fun!
