What do you regret more, Doing something or Not doing something?

Like on any decision , we usually get confused between doing it or not.
Example:
- Deleting, Like some gagers regret deleting their account some don't regret
- Buying clothes, Electronic...
- Posting pointless post
- And more
- regret saying something OR sometime we regret not saying something

sometime I feel happy for not buying something when I had that feeling and vise versa

  • yes i regret
    -eating fast food cause it degraded my health
    -buying too much junk i didn't really need
    -selling 2 of my cars for one new one that im now having all kinds of problems with when i could of easily fixed the one i liked i had. but now i have 2 cars again, and im currently fixing the problems. lack of free time and money is the obstacle right now, the process is slow.
    -even tho i had no choice, i broke up with a really sweet hot girl of my dreams because i had to move out of state, if that never happened she would of been the one, at least i think so. i always wonder how she's doing, but i can never find out. there's no way to, i just hope she's happy, cause i really broke her beautiful heart.
    - back in my high school years a girl suddenly said hi to me and she was behind me somewhere, but stupid me i didn't look back to see who it was to say hi back to and i kept walking away.

  • For me the regrets later on generally come from things I thought I should have done but didn't do. They don't come quite as much from the things I made the effort to do but failed.

    More immediate regrets tend to come from things I did do, like embarrassing things, but long-term regrets for me tend to be more about what I didn't do.

    • Some of this might be kind of just be a matter of how we frame our thoughts and words. But the things I regret in my youth are the opportunities I ignored.

    • Whoops: "some of this might just be a matter of how we frame our thoughts and words".

    • You explained it very well

  • I regret doing something more.
    There may have been times I should have done something and didn't, and yeah, I regret that... but even those are just "what if?" scenarios.
    Actually doing something, and having it be something you wish you could take back? That is a bigger regret to me.

  • Kinda depends on the perceived result.

    We regret having done things that have a lasting negative effect on our lives. We regret having missed out on things we perveive as being enjoyable or beneficial.

    • Good answer.

    • @bcromartie
      If you say so.

  • The not doing is always worse for me because of the ill fated question..."What If...".
