May I ask, who are we to decide what's right and what's wrong, and for what
reasons? We are not God and therefore have no right to judge others or
ourselves. He in the end is the one to judge us, and decide our fate. So
therefore I say live with no regrets, everything happens for a reason, so
don't let mistakes hold you back because of your conscience. If you sit
there wallowing in your conscience for things you've done or things that
have been done,than how will you ever fix anything, or live?

Description of conscience:
Conscience is inherent in man, having been made part of him by God. It is
an inward realization or sense of right and wrong that excuses or accuses
one. Hence, conscience judges. It also can be trained by the thoughts and
acts, convictions and rules that are implanted in a person’s mind by study
and experience. Based on these things, it makes a comparison with the
course of action being taken or contemplated. Then it sounds a warning when
the rules and the course conflict, unless the conscience is “seared,” made
unfeeling by continued violations of its warnings. Conscience can be a
moral safety device, in that it imparts pleasure and inflicts pain for
one’s own good and bad conduct.
Thoreau touches on the true meaning of conscience.
