Never regret anything that has happened in your life, because it can't be changed, undone, or forgotten. So it's better to take it as a lesson learned and move on. amirite?

You can regret something and still learn from it.

Exactly. Why would I even feel like I should learn to not do it again if I didn't regret it?

To me regret has a long term intensity. I can feel bad or be sorry I did something, learn the lesson and move on. Regret seems too permanent - maybe it's just my interpretation of that word.

I think it's just your interpretation of the word, I'll check though. Googles definition A feeling of sadness, repentance, or disappointment over something that has happened or been done. So it's not necessarily long term by definition, but it could be in some cases.

You are saying the shopworn phrase "I can forgive but I can't forget" is BS and I agree.
