Not buying the '66 Barracuda from my 78 year-old neighbor when he offered to sell it to me. One owner car, driven not much more than around the City. I want that in my driveway. All the other fuckups in my life I can deal with, but I cannot get that car...

I can agree with u on marriage is a waste of time. the stats on marriage and divorce are just crazy anymore. my biggest regret is probably spending 10 years of my life lookin for a woman that "isnt like that" as ppl would say. ive yet to find one that would fit the category "not all women are like that" even tho I do think there may be a couple out there. once I realized that for the most part they are all alike in almost every way my life got so much better. can treat them all the same way no matter how attracted I am to them now days cuz I don't care about impressing them at all so I never have that anxiety that comes with initiating conversation and tryin to keep from sayin things she might not like and on and on. the funny part about it is that once I quit tryin to do the things I was taught that women would love by a single mother and sister I found out that women don't actually like the good guy, they seem to love the jerk cuz once I started to ignore them, blow them off and not give them any unneeded attention at all they seem to approach me more than ever. the way men and women are is just crazy sometimes....lol

I really try not to live with regrets, however, try as I might I have too many to list. If I had to pick one it would be giving my youngest daughter to her father while I suffered a nervous breakdown. I feel she would be a totally different person if I would have brought her with me while I healed.

My biggest regret is not sticking with dance when I was 6. My mom pulled me out because I just wasn't good at it, but that moment created a major flaw in me and I never gave 100% again at anything. It caused me to give up at everything if I wasn't good at it and set me up for failure. I've since realized that was the critical moment in my life that dictated my personality and am trying to change it, but yeah.

@Redcupcoffee thank you. I'm now in taekwando and really bad at it lol. My physical condition has worsened to the point that I struggle a lot, but my Dojang is super supportive and help me to not lose my passion for it. I hope to stick with it!

When I saw Prince in 2001, they announced after the show that there was an after party at a little nightclub known mostly for hosting heavy metal acts -- in fact, it was the same nightclub where Dimebag Darrell was murdered on stage... Anyhow, my friend and I laughed at the idea of Prince being at a heavy metal club and we went on home... The next day, I found out that not only was Prince there, but he played an acoustic set of requests and he mingled with the crowd too... He was there until like 3am... Boy, do I regret not going to that!!!

It's tough to regret my marriage because the kids that resulted from that hellish nightmare are the most important thing in my life and my greatest accomplishments. I do regret having been stupid enough to stay as long as I did.

I regret rushing into a bad relationship shortly after my ex and I separated.

I don't really have regrets , I saw my life as just learning - I am sure that I had them fleetingly after relationship break up s etc. at the time but they faded away -and were replaced by a new challenge' I married a right eejit but life was kind and he mostly stayed out of my life _ I think I had quite a big life (in my own terms as I was up for anything anyone proposed) - I'll be 70 shortly and still no regrets nothing left undone that I wanted to do - which is just as well really ,

Mine was not focusing on my music lessons like I should have. I was pretty lazy when it came to practicing, and I wonder what kind of musician I could have been had I worked harder at it.

Falling for the wrong woman. I fell madly in love with someone and thought she loved me as well. Turned out I was very wrong. Of course I did not find that out until after 6 years and a child.

I regret reading in one of your post, about how boring men are. 😀
Jk, jk. I'm not sure, lending a friends some money that they still have not paid me all of it back and now they are ghosting me. Feel pretty dumb about that recently.

How would I know? Next week I may have a different opinion. Even when I may had said... letting this woman go three months ago. And yesterday I may tell you... well, she is back in my life you know? I don't know next week what it will be... That job I declined, the woman I did not followed to the west coast, the ones left overseas? The one in the south? the one in the island? Those I ran away from? It is just decisions... No Regrets what so over. "Que Sera Sera, Whatever May Be, May Be". Just Live and Learn but No Regrets.... It is all a Good Ride to Enjoy.

Not leaving "home" sooner. Not entering counceling/therapy sooner. Poor choices in a partner. I regret all 3 equally.

I fell asleep on the 3rd lap of the 1600 meters at the district meet in 1981. I was in 5th place and I pulled it out to get 2nd and a trip to the Regional meet. I should have smoked that guy who won but he earned it and I didn't... (P.S. I came in dead last at Regionals so it didn't matter, anyway ha ha!)

My biggest meta-regret was imagining that my expectations of life would never be substantively violated. Which is a nice way of saying that I felt entitled to certain outcomes. A lot of that was religiously-mediated: I was god's special snowflake and he wouldn't fail to protect me, enlighten me, and just generally bless me and give me a leg up on those "others" who didn't believe "correctly". This led to all the poor decisions and resulting hilarity that represents my ACTUAL ... well, not regrets, exactly, but certainly disappointments. I was always true to the light I had at any point in time, so regrets? Not really. But disappointments, in spades.

To me a true regret is knowing what you SHOULD do, and not doing it anyway. At some level I knew that life is just stuff happening, is simply natural consequences and various amounts of good and bad luck. And I pretended it was otherwise, because I WANTED it to be what it wasn't. I DO regret THAT.

I can't possibly time travel in my lifetime. I believe you never have to regret about anything in life coz at that moment what you have done was right to you and there are plenty of things beyond human comprehension.

It is not a waste of time if you learned something out of it. Granted the returns may not warrant the time dedicated but... Live and Learn.

Having no regrets..... 😉

I really don't have regrets. However there are things in hindsight I would do differently.
