This kinda thing can just drive you crazy, man. I used to dwell on past decisions and wonder if I would be happier or better off if I had made a different choice, or wonder where my life might be if I had gone here or done this or said that, etc. To the point where I would wonder about stupidly small things, like, "if I hadn't called in sick to work this day, maybe I would've met someone who had changed my life," or "if I had gone out with my friends last night, who would I have met?" etc.

Eventually I just let go and decided to try and accept the course my life takes. Lead it as much as possible in the direction I want to go, but from there just let the wind take me where it may.
into this wild abyss
the womb of nature
and perhaps her grave
of neither sea nor shore nor air nor fire
but all these in their pregnant causes mixed confusedly
and which thus must ever fight
unless the almighty maker them ordain his dark materials to create more worlds
into this wild abyss the wary fiend stood on the brink of hell
and looked a while
pondering his voyage
