“And we know that all things work together for good for them who love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.”
— Romans 8:28.

Most people when they give it some thought can think of a time when they said something or took action on a situation and later wanted to retract the comment, or would like to have had a chance to take a different action on what was done.

We cannot redo the past regardless of what one might want. If something was said that offended someone, then an explanation is due them. If something you said was an embarrassment to someone, then an apology is due. If it was something said that only embarrassed you, then it is best to leave it lay because the hole you put yourself in will only get deeper and can create much more effort to get yourself out.

If it was something you took action on and it involved others who were hurt or embarrassed, then other action should be taken to correct the situation and try to compensate the others who were involved. If the action taken involved only you, then learn the lesson from the action taken and don’t repeat it...
