life regrets

Post by rubiksolved »

Hey guys,

In the course of my life so far I’ve come across plenty of people with regrets they’ve had in their own lives. And seeing how life is so incredibly short… I just kind of wanted to see what everyone else’s regrets are.

Career-life objectives?
Relationships?
Family?

It would be pretty cool to learn from each other’s *mistakes* or to see what we would do differently at your age. So I guess when you post… it’ll be cool if you posted your age along with your posting.

I know a lot of people out there also try to live without regrets... and even if you do, it'd be helpful to see something you'd change.. rather than regret.

Here’s mine:
I regret not spending enough time to keep in touch and to foster relationships with the significant people in my life. I feel like I’ve been too distracted with the other aspects of life (work and school primarily) that I just kinda lost touch with people I would rather not have lost touch with… I know its not too late.. but I feel like some relationships have deteriorated too much for full repair..

I made plenty mistakes but I don't think I have any regrets.. I don't like living in the past. We learn from everything we do and that's always a good thing. :)

IMO that is normal. As you get older everyone has different goals that take them in separate directions.

I think all guys have a couple of those. I have one in particular that I probably wouldn't do over if I could but meh. I learned a lot so it's all good.

My biggest regret is joining phpBB.com -- imagine if I had known what it'd do to my free time. (What's free time?!?) ;)

Nope.

Regret: dedicating too much to study and too little to girls. :roll: Hope to change my mind. :geek:
Age: around 23.

But at least, unlike iWisdom, I still have a chance to change my life. :P

Whatever I say, it's not my fault.

This is easy one.... Smoking. I think any smoker would tell you the same thing.

Just to make it clear, I'm not saying I should have dropped out of school, but I am saying that I have had a lot of problems preventing me from successfully completing school at this time.

NO regrets, would I do some things differently? you bet.

However, I spend just about zero time even thinking about it because there is no point.
