I dont have big regrets because i always think thoroughly before i act but one regret i have is not travelling and going to the festivals with my grandma before she passed away. I was a little kid back then and i was thinking "oh well i will do it later when i grow up" :roll2: :lol2:

In always don't like regrets. Instead I call them lost or misused opportunities because some of them may go for ever, others may come back later, while others haunt us. All I need is to heal from my past and that's all.

To be honest my biggest regret is getting divorced. I wish I had tried harder to work things out and hadn't been in such a hurry to leave. My life would be so much better now if I had stayed. My ex has moved on with a new wife now so it's too late to change things. I can only hope that one day I find someone to love again.

Even the worst of things- sometimes the experience gained from negative past circumstances is what you need to help another deal with similar circumstances- or even help them avoid making the same mistake you did! All regrettable circumstances eventually work out for the greater good of both you and those around you. You just have to choose to see them as opportunity, rather than tragedy.
That is a really good attitude to have about life and living. I would say that I have few regrets. Mistakes, yes, but the true regrets are minimal. The mistakes help one to grow and become who they really want to be over time.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

My biggest regret is when I'm afraid to try because of fears and doubts. But now, I learned.

My biggest regret is not listening to my body when I was playing soccer. I played year round all through school and into college and I sacrificed my body one too many times. It lead to too many breaks of the same bone and ultimately ended my career.

I wish I would have focused more inhigh school like I did in primary school. I got good grades in primary school but I was a bit reluctant in high school. This prevented me from getting a direct entry to the university. That's something I always regret.

My biggest regret would probably be not valuing myself more when I was younger. I feel like I missed out on a lot of opportunities since I just let things happen around me and let other people decide the flow of things without speaking my peace. Whatever consequences my choices might have led to, I could have been satisfied knowing that I made them myself.

I think not going to college is probably my biggest regret. I think I would have liked the experience.

Absolutely, positively, husband #2 is my biggest regret!

Another regret is that I didn't go to a 4 year college...I think I would have a much more expansive life if I had been introduced to a wider range of subjects and ideas way back then.

My biggest regret in the past is that I escaped the opportunities that is given to me. Now I realized that those simple things that is offered to me in my past is very important.

My Biggest Regret Is Allowing Myself To Be Bullied Into Silence.. Being Bullied Did A Number Of Hurt Emotionally.. People Took Advantage Of That Silent Me Because I Never Voiced Out Whether I Am Hurting Or Not Therefore People Just Assumed I Am Okay With Whatever They Throw At Me As A Result I Was Used By So Many And Emotionally I Was A Wreck But I Am Glad To The Worst Of People I Met Because They Taught Me That If I Don't Speak Out I Will Forever Be Abused And Bullied And Also I Regret Not Enjoying My Childhood To The Fullest And Every Now And Then I Get Bitter When I Think Of The Past But I Always Pray That Bitterness Do Not Cloud My Heart With Evil

My biggest regret is falling in love with the wrong person and divorcing later on. I couldn't study my partner very well before getting into the relationship. I relocated to stay with my partner upon her request but all ended in divorce.
