4. If amends can be made, make them

If you're struggling with depression, you shouldn't go it alone and should seek professional advice.

If you're upset about doing something "stupid" or "screwing up" it's a lesson learned.

I have a generally zen/fatalistic look on life - try not to be too big of a dick with others, realize it's okay to get down on yourself but you're not defined by a single past action, and don't let past actions keep you from being put in a situation where you might screw up again. Unless we have some sort of fame now, after we die, we'll be forgotten in 2 to 3 generations. Things tend to look pretty insignificant compared to that.
