What is the one thing you regret doing/saying the most? If it's too personal, that's fine, you don't have to post it or go into alot of detail. No stress. Try to be as honest as possible.


I'll go into details myself later when I have more time.

I regret not taking it slow and being more forward with this one girl, cause something tells me she was the one that got away, at least in teen romance terms. Basically chatted her up on FB, not so much in real life, and I failed miserably by saying some really personal stuff to someone I didn't know. Even after telling her I liked her she was all cool to me, and even payed more attention to me then my hotter, I mean that in a respectful way, friend who also tried to date her. I know that last bit doesn't make sense with the being more forward bit, but I meant irl then online.

I regret posting a specific thread here (not going to be specific about this part, because I know some people will try to find it). It was soon after I joined, and there was some pretty personal stuff on that thread. T: I just have to hope that people have forgotten about it- or that they don't realize that it was me who posted it.

I actually can't think of anything I really regret that was done offline.

I regret not putting any thought into my future when I was younger. Every time someone asked me what I wanted to do after school, I just shrugged it off and figured that I'd come up with something later. Granted, I still don't know, but that's the problem. If I thought about it some more, I'd know by now.

Regret is for the weak.
I've done a lot of stupid things, things I would do differently if I was in the same situation again.
But I regret nothing. Because every mistake, every trip, every stupid move, every hellish experience, has made me who I am and strengtened me in all kinds of different ways.
No sir, I wouldn't take anything back.

I regret trusting some old "friends" the most. I regret being trampled by certain people and letting my emotions get the better of me. I regret not taking a stand earlier. I regret letting others rule how I should feel about myself.

I disagree with this..
Regret is completely natural.

Even if you make stupid mistakes, you can still learn from other people's mistakes too.

See, what you are saying is VERY redundant.
Regret is part of what DOES "make you the way you are". Without regret, you wouldn't even CARE or recall the stupid things you have done in the past. Therefore you wouldn't look back on it and try to avoid the situation, and then you'd just keep looping through the same stupid mistakes again..

You can't "not" regret. Even if you deny it, your mind regrets stupid things it has done in order to prevent it from happening again. I am just explaining because the way you put it sounds sort of ignorant.

Enough with the explanations though..

I regret lots of things. Like stepping on my brother when I was 11 and then being an ass and proclaiming that I did it on accident. While I sat there and watched him cry and he KNEW I did it on purpose. :(

Things like that.

I regret sitting in a chair for the last four years of my life doing absolutely nothing except go to work or shopping with my friends. I wasted four years of my life getting no life experiences and the thought that I can never get that back haunts me to this very day.

I regret not getting a chair for my desk so I can use my laptop at it, as right now I am damaging my back. I
have other regrets but that one is what I regret the most and the moment.

There are far too many things that I regret to be really able to state one. Though the one thing that I've been regretting a lot over the past few days as I approach deadline, is not starting my computing paper earlier. Well, this may actually be relatively insignificant to some other that I've regrets I've had, but I'd rather not remember, or more likely, can't haha.

Not planning out my life after high school. I should've been looking into college years before I graduated, or at the very least, stayed firm in my decision to go to community college first and transfer out when I moved back to the US instead of letting my councilor walk all over me.

My life has been nothing but regrets since I graduated, and I'm still doing nothing about it. :/

I should answer my own topic before it gets too old and inactive.
Anyway, the thing I regret the most is screwing up in high school. My high school experience wasn't the best one at all. I was late for class almost everyday, missing out my first period class most of the time.There would be also many days where I'd lie about being sick just so I can stay him. I'd beg my dad to let me stay home and to call in the school and say I'm not feeling well. This affected my graded in turn, cause I'd miss out on what we learned that day and had no idea about some things when it came to exams.Also I always forgotten to finish homework many times and so my grades would drop even lower due to constant procrastination. Freshmen year I'd act out in class and get angry often. I'd also pretend to be sick or not feeling well so I could go home. Also junior year I went through a weird phase in style and my music choice. I now hate looking at picture of myself back then and how stupid I looked. I also had a slight attitude change where I tried to be friends with everyone. I ended up loosing one friendship, one of my best friends since kindergarten, and made several guys at my school completely hate me. My whole high school experience was one big mess and it caused me to not graduate with my class.Long story short, I had to take a year and a half, almost two years of correspondence courses before I was able to receive my high school diploma. I now regret being lazy and unproductive during high school. I hate how sometimes I had to lie on a job application about having a high school education. It made it so hard to get a job. And now I'm a 20, going on 21 ,year-old who's not in school or work and who just sits on the computer most of the time. It's sad to me how by the time I finally get into a college, most of my high school class will be starting their 3rd year and I'll only be starting my first. And now I'm trying to turn myself around and get back up. When I finally into school again, I'm determined to try as hard as possible to be a good, hardworking student and not slack off.

Not calling for help when I sensed something was wrong.

I try to not regret stuff too much unless it's something more... idk, deep? Stuff like not studying for an exam properly or whatever isn't something that'll go on my regret list because I was probably busier doing something else which I enjoyed more at the time. It's a learning experience, sure, but not something I'd regret.

That said - I try to have few regrets and I do that quite well. However, one thing I do regret hugely, is not having that great a relationship with my dad through my life. Anyone who knows anything about him knows that it was never that easy for us two to have any relationship (or, for the most part, communication) at all but it was possible at stages and it never really worked out. I'm not even the one responsible for that but I kinda wish I'd tried a bit harder to at least make something work, as much as many of my friends would disagree with this. It just would have been nice and it's something that can't ever happen now.

Regretting is one thingh I dislike doing. But I am used to regret few of my choices. Mostly I still try to live on without too much worrying. Anyhow... My regrets...women. In many cases women are the case of my regrets. That about sums it up.

I regret not taking a risk for someone I wanted to be with for years when I finally had the chance.

I regret not being active as a kid. I used to be a little active growing up but by the time I was in 1st grade we had moved out of our old house and moved to a place with no one in my age group. There was a family nearby but after an incident that happened in 3rd grade I never went to their place again. I ended up not doing anything and ended up getting overweight, and I didn't want people to come over my house for some stupid reason (don't want to explain) so for most of my childhood I was pretty much at home and by myself, playing with my gamecube or being on my computer/laptop. Once school was over I had no social life and my summers were spent with just family, though I was pretty much by myself.

I've been trying to turn that around since my freshman year. I've been socializing a lot more during school and even talk to people after school. Football helped me hang out with around 100 guys during the summer and fall and I'd workout with these guys during spring and summer workouts. Working out in general has helped me befriend a lot of people.

No matter how far I go I'll always regret not doing it any sooner.
