    What life choices do YOU regret?

    There are several, which I wont list. They have been my strongest teachers in life. I learned the lesson well, so I wont repeat again. They cost me seriously, yet I discovered one thing, all you have is yourself. Your money and possession mean nothing, you can loss them in a flash. All you have is yourself. All the worry you do about losing money, not making enough is futile in the end.

    The one choice I will mention that I still regret was going home to lay down for a half hour, and sleep for several hours. I wasn't there to say goodbye to my husband when he died. This I will carry with me till I see him again, in the afterlife.

      A good philosophical answer which leaves plenty of room for mature analysis and thought!

      @gmwilliams I agree with you. A good philosophical answer.

    I don't regret anything really. We are all only human, we all make mistakes, and that's just the way it goes. Fortunately, for some of us, life is a growing intellectual experience in which we constantly learn from, but for others its a dead end road! There's no sense in being shameful or regretting everything. Wouldn't it be better to possibly accept our own mistakes and learn from them?

      right. we should not let mistakes bring us to dead end  of road instead we should use it as a stepping stone to succeed. smile

    Although I am happy, have indeed found "my true ain love, and have most wonderful children." I certainly regret not perservering with regards to my hockey career and perhaps making the "big league" or bringing it (more) to closure...

    Everything. That's why I learn to be me, without the things I regret I wouldn't not be me. But I realized that I regret to much that I forget to live my life. So now, I stopped to regret my choices, and just live through it, like most of us. But unlike most of us, these things I regret changes me to become a better person, to become who I want to be.

    I was in a long term relation (27 years). But the true love was gone long before the relationship ended and my biggest regret is that I stayed in the relationship for the last 12 years.
    In the end there was nothing traumatic about its end we just went our separate ways.
    It cost me a great deal of money, but it is the lost time I really regret and will never get back.

      Sorry to hear about it, I know how it hurts. But things has served its purpose. Separation happens because you are not meant to be with your partner. It could be someone is much deserving for your love.

      Moving on was no big thing, nor was the split. I've had lots of interesting, happy relationships and have a current GF who is a great girl.

    I have regretted several decisions in my life  (don't want to mention). However, because of my imperfection, I became stronger and better person. Those Wrong choices I've done, enabled me to move forward in life. "Experience is always the best teacher".
