My biggest regret is not believing in myself when I had the chance to chase my dreams. I gave up and I settled. Now I am 23, married and with 2 kids. My dreams are now (and forever) on the back burner. I look at another man and think “should I have stayed with you?”
I always felt like people who told me I could be something real were lying to me. And now I realize they were trying to help me. 23/F

I regret not standing up for myself more when I was in school. I was bullied almost constantly starting in elementary school and it escalated in high school. The worst part was knowing that I did nothing to the people who were bullying me but they knew I was an easy target and never let up. I also regret not having teachers or school staff who really cared enough to help. I often went to the staff to get help but nothing was ever done. A girl got just one day of in school suspension for handing out baby shower invitations to the entire school for me when I was not even pregnant but if I would have resorted to some sort of violence, I would have been expelled. A girl who put itching powder [which felt more like shards of glass] down my back in class did not get any sort of punishment. Most of all, I regret that physical violence is taken way more seriously than emotional when in my opinion, and I am sure in the opinion of many other victims of bullying, I would have rather been hit a few times than tortured emotionally every single day. I hope that some day, they take bullying more seriously in schools before suicide becomes even more of a problem.
My secret regret it is doing methamphetamine and dangerous drugs for over 20 years in a marriage that is twenty five years old. And the regret of the money, the time, and the dangers of drug use without my family knowing or being aware of it. I do the drugs because of the character flaw with myself.
The ups, the downs, stomach aches, mental illnesses faked — all to change the way my wife thought, convincing her I was sick or depressed.
I regret using shopping as a way of dealing with my unhappiness in the past. Now I’m truly happy in my life situation, but my past mistakes are still being paid for, literally. I regret that I will still be paying for my past unhappiness for many years to come and that I feel like I’m completely drowning in debt. 33/F
I regret not getting over your cheating, lying ass sooner.
I regret fooling myself into thinking that you were too good for me when, in fact, it was the other way around.
I regret that I didn’t respect myself enough to ditch you and kick you to the curb, instead I let you dump me. I regret that when you dumped me I didn’t moonwalk out smiling and instead let myself believe that it was a bad thing.
I don’t love you, I don’t miss you and the days that I think of you have become few and far between. Thoughts like, ‘I can’t believe I went out with that guy!’.
Good riddance! I hope you end up with someone you deserve.
I regret bringing not so nice men around my children. The men I chose to be in my life didn’t treat me very kind and my babies started growing up and seeing these nasty behaviors they had. I think God for showing me the light and waking me up from my dark ways. Me and two children are great by ourselves. I know now I don’t need a man to validate me and I must not settle for less
I regret not calling the police myself. I regret being nice to my teachers and neighbors, who knew what I was going through at the hands of my parents but didn’t even think to call CPS. My life would have been so much different … I have no choice now but to accept the past and move on.
My biggest regret is being born to two dysfunctional people. It led me to make a lot of possibly more regrettable decisions then the one I made to be the fastest sperm. I regret the havoc I caused in my teen years and feel guilty every single day for it. Although I know I am responsible for my own mistakes and sins, I sometimes can’t help but to blame my parents.
I regret signing a loan for a friend. She paid on the loan for a couple of years and then suddenly stopped. I am now stuck with $40,000+ of debt, being too nice. We took care of each other’s children and trusted each other.
