Querulous, you fix it by doing something differently next time.

My new favorite: "Forgiveness is the release of all hope for a better past." (Buddy Wakefield, "Hurling Crowbirds at Mockingbars.")

Free, that is one of the best definitions of forgiveness/acceptance I've ever read. It's going on my wall, next to Masahide's haiku.
