What're your biggest regrets in life?

What're your biggest regrets in life?What things do you regret the very most in your life?
Personally, for me, when I was little, I got into a fight with my mom so one of my birthdays were completely glossed over and I felt hated and forgotten (I think it was my 8th?), and I missed a trip to Chicago, again, a fight with my mom (it was about socks..) and then there was the chemical damage that I did to my hair at the ages of 11-15.. And my hair has suffered a lot from that.. And also cutting myself about three years ago out of stress.. And most recently, it's been breaking up abruptly with a SO and getting fired from a really good job. All of these regrets have significantly changed who I am as a person as I've reflected on them a lot and I'm not the same after each of them has happened.
So what about you? What're your biggest regrets in life?

  • I think most regrets are things we learn from so technically a regret is a good thing since we learn from them. I guess my biggest regret was helping my dad out (I know sounds mean and bad, but not). Let me explain, a month after I turned 17 my dad needed help, so i went down to help. They were six of us at the site. We started the project and we had it almost two thirds done when something broke and it came crashing down striking me in the head. Forty five days latter I woke up from a coma and I couldn't move, talk or hear but I could see I guess. Six months latter after rehab I came home like a ghost (no girlfriend, friends even my family didn't even know what to say). Finished school and two year latter some put faith in me and gave me a small job. Two years latter meet the love of my life and married her. A year latter got a good job. Sorry for the long rant but just showing that most of the time a regret works out for the better because we learn a lesson

    • Ah gee.. I'm really sorry that that happened to you! That seems pretty scary.. I can definitely see how you'd regret that happening.

    • But I agree with you on learning from regret! Regret teaches us things that literally nothing else can.

  • I had a messed-up life growing up, and had to work out a lot of personal issues. I'm a much better and positive person now, but in high school I was very withdrawn and socially backward. I did absolutely NOTHING in high school, other that show up and pass on to the next grade. I regret now that I didn't do anything back then, and didn't even talk to anybody. I didn't even talk to girls then, because I didn't know what to say to them, and I was afraid of them anyway.

    • Yeah I can relate there.. I haven't really been a social person for most of my life.. I've only recently started altering that for myself.

  • Same here (only regret in my life) fight with mom and I left home for 4 days and she was crying and all and promised never to hurt her again.

    • It was a lesson for everyone in that situation.. but yeah.. sounds stressful :/

  • On my way to my dorm, exciting the elevator, this blonde babe complimented my shoes. I was certain based on her eye contact and her voluntary compliment, that she was making it easier or giving me a sign for me to approach and talk to her more. It was obvious from my point of view what this could mean but all I said was “thank you” while walking towards my dorm. She’s on my floor but I haven’t seen her often.

    • Hmm.. oddly enough, I have no regret for when I've personally done that myself.. I don't know.. I guess I just see it as a form of venting.. kinda like you mess with a bull and you get the horns. I don't just explode on people for no good reason xD So I guess I see it as a neutral exchange.

    • U got 1 blessing outta that. Try not to bad mouth the mom infront of ur child. Never deny the mom from seeing ur baby. I know that's not what u want to here, but dude I've been there. Same exact situation. Only I was the sucker that stuck around twice. Lol. I got 2 beautiful children from her. I never denied it b bad mouth the mom infront of them. And they turned out to be such a blessing in my life. Fill of character and charm and little responsible children. Sup from experience, don't let them see hate.

  • One, not saying I like/love you to a girl back in high school. We could have been a couple, been married. For real.

    • Why the latter? I'm assuming something bad happened? If you don't mind me asking that is

    • That decision to take a week off to go to Alabama affected the direction my life went in in a little of ways. If I had known how that one decision would affect my life I never would have made it. It kind of a long story but if you want to hear it I tell it, but I don't want to type the whole story out if nobody cares to read it.

    • I think this regret fills a lot of people's hearts.. most people just are too prideful to admit how much it can control their lives.. and how they can be addicted to it

    • I think porn appeals to that very human desire to have as much pleasure as possible with as little effort as possible.

      But I ought to have known from my years of playing video games that hard work, that results in a reward only after having done it, is much more satisfying.

    • True true! People are just lazy and unmotivated unfortunately...
