Given the million possible ways your life can turn out, there would be issue in which "person you could have become" you meet. Is it "the best one"? What makes one possibility better over another? Wealth? Sex? Your level of happiness?

All you'd have to do then is live your life without regrets and no matter who you meet at the end, they'll have no grounds to hold anything over you.

Just thought of something:

OK so "the best one" is based off of your own perception of what are "the best qualities". Given that this is usually based off of what you don't have, but want, this just goes back to living without regret. My high school coach told us that the key to happiness is to just do what makes you happy (he had 2 cars to himself on a teachers salary. He's working to pay them off, which set him back a bit, but they made him happy so he didn't care.) People still berate him about it. "It's a waste of money."

I'm guessing if someone like him meets his "person he could've become" he probably wouldn't give two *****, despite society telling him he's "doing it wrong". So then is it society who tells us this criteria, or our own person? it's probably our own person, but then the flaw in that is that every arrogant douchebag/asshole you meet, who you think should go to hell, would be completely unaffected by it, because they're not the type to have regrets.

So maybe with that your hell theory doesn't really work...
