I'm not quite old enough to have any huge regrets.

I do, however, regret that I didn't experience more in high school. I never dated. Never got involved in school events or clubs. Never went to a dance. Rarely went out with friends. I spent most of my time in my room, alone. I wish I hadn't.

I also regret fighting with my mother so much in my preteen years, but that was fueled by my puberty issues and my mother's menopause, so I don't think anything could have prevented it.


haha you basically described my high school life as well xD

i'm a senior right now in high school (almost done -.-), but I don't necessarily regret not going to dances, just because I really don't feel like I'm missing anything. I've never had a boyfriend in high school as well, and I'm not in that much clubs. I'm also super antisocial and kinda scared to hang out with large groups of friends...

and yeah, i'm pretty mean to my family sometimes. it's because i don't feel like acting nice, but also because i'm pretty crabby when i'm tired or sleepy. i know it's not the right thing to do, but as a teenager it's the automatic thing that i do.


Both of you remind me of myself, but I don't necessarily regret it. Honestly, I think I would have more, serious regrets had I hung out with my friends and participated in school.

To me, those things such as "not hanging out with friends" may not seem like really 'serious' regrets, but they actually played a huge role as to the kind of person I am now. I think those small things are the most dangerous kinds of regrets, because I never realize how impactful they were on me until it was too late. Never participating in school may not seem like a big deal to others, but for me it would have changed so much concerning how outgoing or involved I am now with my life, instead of being stuck in my room the majority of the time.

That's just my opinion though

Interesting, I never thought of staying in my room all the time as a bad thing. It's what makes me happy, so I'd have it no other way. I've tried being social, it's just not my thing, it creates so many more problems than it's worth in my mind.

Hmm...I have plenty of regrets myself - more than I would like to think about. But probably the biggest one would be not going to college right after high school and spending a good number of years as a NEET. Even though I'm back in school now I feel like I wasted so much time doing nothing. Sometimes I want to go back and punch my 17 year old self in the face.


I couldn't agree more, You just summed up my life too.

Mine would probably be that I wished I had been a stronger person emotionally back when I was a school girl in the UK. I went to a private all girls school and got bullied a lot, I stood out because I was pale , had red hair and was shy which made me a target, I though back then you could 'buy' friendship I was generous used to always bring candy to share with everyone. It took a few years to realise that people just were using that generosity and didn't give a toss about who I was. Now I am older I realise that I am who I am and people have 2 choices as to whether they like me or not, but its one of those lessons I regret not learning waaay sooner.

My biggest regret is always time. I wish I spent more time with family, friends, and my pets who have passed away. I'm trying to spend more time with my kids, family, friends, and pets everyday so I don't have more regrets in the future.

edit: I guess I also regret not being a 7'0" athletic black guy making $100 million playing basketball.

Not getting a job right before my father's brain damage.

Also, not establishing a good enough relationship with the person I was in love with. Now they've moved out of state and they've never been very sociable on the phone (always better to talk to in person.) And the trouble is that they chose to move out of state because of the scenery. During a time when I was too busy with work and family trouble to be sociable with anybody too.

Why did you have to move on despite opening up to me during a time when I couldn't have time for you T_T

Not staying in college and focus on my studies.

Not getting a job before 2009.

Not working on getting my license.

Not going to my grandmother's funeral.

Not speaking to my father since last year. Eventually I will but I still need time for myself.

Wasting my time not doing anything productive.


NOT WORKING ON MY CREATIVE WRITING LIKE I SHOULD!!!!!!

I've got to say that many of the posts on this thread are from people 25 and under. If you regret your career path, or haven't selected one yet, then you have plenty of time to redirect your path. My biggest regret is selecting a career path that is nearly extinct in this country. Engineering was considered to be a noble career, but lately with the current economy, I'd be better off as a trash collector! That said, I regret going to college for engineering. I wish someone would have made me aware of politics, and shown me how nice it is to live using other peoples money. If I had it to do all over again, I'd have focused my life on law, government, and politics so that I could have the best benefits and retirement package in America!
