I regret leaving my old job. My new job pays more, but the level of stress is absolutely unbearable. I can’t handle it at all. I don’t know what I’m going to do now.
I smoked crack one time & that’s now going to always be my biggest regret. I helped get my friend clean off it & then 2 years later smoked with her when I was at a very low point.
I regret spending all my time with geeky, awkward, virgin friends and waiting for a “someone special” instead of making effort to meet guys and just casually date in my teens and early twenties.
I’ve always thought some how we would get together again. I have so many memories, but the one I seem to cherish most is our first kiss, over 30 years ago, at a gas station off a very busy highway, southern CA. I was lost and needed directions to your sisters to see you. Guess what, I still feel lost some days. If I knew your were OK, I would feel better, but I do keep telling my self, you are better off without me. Male, 1955 model
I am in love with my former best friend. I regret not leaving my boyfriend for him, but I was afraid. I was afraid of being alone if we didn’t work out, and I knew that I would never be single if I stayed with my boyfriend. I regret this more than anything that I have ever done. I think about my lost chance at true love daily. I know that he will encompass my last thoughts when I leave this world. Female, 29
I’m thinking about it again… I work in the lodging industry and many years ago walked into a place to interview for a simple desk clerk position and was offered the Front Office Manager’s position instead. A position of a life time and I foolishly, stupendously stupidly, turned it down and walked out. I didn’t want to drive across town, I was scared, I didn’t feel as if I was ready, it would’ve been me everyone called when a guest with a problem wants to scream at somebody, a vendor with a problem, excuses, excuses… But in hindsight I was really stupid cause I think I could’ve risen to the challenge. Now all these years later I’m still just a glorified desk clerk, a supervisor without a title and barely making ends meet and the to rub salt in the wound the managers I report to are younger than I am…
I regret getting married to man who dose not show any kind of affection or care. I wish I never got married. I wish I had the courage to leave but I’m afraid of what will happen if I leave. I regret that by being with him I will never have children because he doesn’t want any. I can’t even have a dog. I hate being with him and I want to leave.
I regret ever liking you, sometimes even meeting you.I wish I still thought of you as a friend. Because there is this constant pain and loneliness I feel when I’m not with you, and I know you will never feel the same for me.
I believe my biggest life regret is taking back the girl who cheated on me 18 years ago. I guess we go through Life thinking that people will eventually grow up and start to develop some level of understanding how relationship works, but this has been the longest most painful part of my life and with three children involved it imakes it extremely hard to deal with. Not only has this female never proved to be faithful, she has taken everything from me. My mind, my heart, my finances and everything else I shared with her. I guess what they say hold true about a cheating spouse “The best revenge for a cheating spouse is letting the other person keep them”
I had a great life planned in my head. Friends, family, children and a decent loving warm home to share with a person I thought was the one. I didn’t even have high expectations like most women and demand anything of my partner that I couldn’t do myself. I wasn’t expecting to be well off, but I also had thought he would help do his own part to keep from struggling as often as we do. I ended up with almost nothing I thought was to be… everyone in my life who should have little say seem to have all the rights and will win no matter what cause this was the plan all along and I was too simple to see it, when I could make a change that would make it right instead of wrong.
To the people in my future…take my apologies now, for When you meet me I will not carry much of a belief that this is n’t just the way most people are..I guess it’s me who has refused to grow up and realize this…instead of me thinking they’re selfish ways were childlike. Yep, the joke was on me the whole time
