Reckless =/= adventurous
You’re reckless when your emotions take over you, and you act without thinking about the consequences
You’re adventurous when you make an informed but risky decision, and you are fully aware of the consequences.
You may regret being reckless, but you should never regret being adventurous. If you were given a second chance, you probably wouldn’t make the same reckless decision again, but you would make the same adventurous decision over and over and over again.
