    Getting married too young and at a time in my life that I had not found my bearings. I regret the decision because of the time it took from my life when I should have been learning, seeing, doing, and enjoying life. On the other hand, I have found the greatest joy of my life in my children from the marriage. So I believe there is always something good to find in the mistakes we make

    Not sticking it out in my marriage 7 years ago.  You live and learn, and I thought I wasn't ready, but that was the worse decision of my life.  I am doing fine, now but should of tried harder and listened to my wife at the time and not gotten a divorce.

    They always try to rule on me saying that its their place. Here i'm so alone having no friends. I really miss my hometown & friends.
    Moreover; I really regret of leaving my hometown & my friends. sad

      I'm so sorry, bhargvi sharma! It is not that way everywhere in the US (assuming you are referring to the US), I assure you.
      Move to Minnesota--there are warmer reasons to live here than the weather!
      I apologize for my those who have hurt you! Shame!

    The worst decision I ever made was not reporting to authorities an entity's fraud on something that mattered on a national/international scale.

    I regret that "do nothing, see no evil, hear no evil, say no evil" decision to this day, and remember it each time I am faced with acting for the good (at any level) versus standing by with the crowd and doing nothing.
