I believe you are backwards on your interpretation of the title text. If it is hard to regret; you do not regret. Therefore you can regret awkward communication, but can't regret communications that never occurred.

Agree on this and I have changed the explanation - I do however, believe that it is not the point that Randall tries to make - and have thus added that you can regret the missed conversation even more than a possible awkward one... Kynde (talk) 18:15, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
