As people go through different stages of growth and maturity, there are certain decisions they’ll come to regret and hope they had taken differently.
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Some of these decisions define people’s persona and ultimately impact various aspects of their lives.
Just as they say, if one does not like their life, they’d have to change the mindset about a situation to see themselves at a better place.
This would mean that the individual would have to take a decision and take action to engineer change.
However, some of these decisions may not always produce consequences that are in the interest of the individual and one may not always have the opportunity to do better, especially at old age.
As we grow up, there would surely be a time that one would wish they had done things better.
There are opportunities that one would wish they took seriously when they came their way but it would have been past and gone.
