It doesn't have to be something serious, but it can if you want it to be.
I got the idea from someone's (darn can't remember their name) post about romance. Hope they don't mind.

Mine would be that my best friend won't ever let me forget about what happened last summer. There was a mishap with some dye and I ended up with purple hair for a month. :x People seemed to like it, though.

She also refuses to let go of the fact that she thinks her brother is "interested" in me. I: She quite likes the idea, though, because she wants me as a sister-in-law. She actually made a 'suggestive' remark about me and her brother (pertaining to the future and her belief that we'll end up married) in public. I smacked her. (:

Well, after getting tired of my parents assuming that anything I made a side comment about was what I wanted to do as a career, I went for about two weeks talking about completely different things.

What I had hoped they would realise:
The fact that I can't just tie myself into one thing, the world is an amazing place, and with everything there is to learn and all the things yet to have been done it would be painful for me to.

What they thought:
I'm fickle to an extreme. :<
They still think that...

I have done things that I regret but nothing I can't live down and now that 2012 is over, I have 2 descriptions of it.
I survived 2012! xD
and "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien" xD

Aside from taking blame for things which other people do, I don't do much that's regrettable.

It doesn't necessarily have to be something you regret. It can be just something stupid you did that your friends think is funny and remind you of.

Oh goodness..

One time on vacation with my family, we were taking a picture in a root of a big tree in Alaska on the island Icy-Strait-Point. We were taking a walk on a trail in the forest on the island. Keep in mind that the ground here was practically as spongy as fertilizer and was bouncy. On the way down from the tree, I tripped on a root, flipped over, bounced on the mushy ground, and then bounced again, shoving my face into the dirt of the path below.

It didn't hurt at all, and apparently it was the most hilarious and stupid thing my parents have ever seen. They have never let me live that one down since.

Inside my own head every little mistake I make is a huge error that brings shame upon me and 12 generations of my descendents. I get embarrassed easily when I mess anything up or, worse, say something that upsets someone.

For example, I had a job interview a few weeks ago and at one point I kind of babbled a bit because my answer to a question they asked was really short and I felt like I needed to say more without really thinking. I'm still mortified by it.

I share the exact same sort of self-consciousness. Even here on the forums, if I say one little thing I feel would have been better left unsaid I feel like my entire social life has collapsed and I want to bury myself in a hole feeling I'd be better off without friends. When it comes to my outlook on me, I can be very irrational. I can't think of a specific situation that stands out, I just know I don't allow myself to make mistakes, big or small. But I'm always quick to forgive others for theirs.

I won't go into it, but nearly a year later I still feel responsible for my father dying.

One time I was in the car with my Mum and my sister and we were mock-singing that favourite things song from The Sound of Music. I didn't know the lyrics so I just guessed them and it came out "raindrops on roses and mittens on kittens" resulting in a round of laughter so raucous that people in surrounding cars were turning and staring.

To this day they haven't let me forget it :P
