    • Me arrepiento de no haberle dado la oportunidad a un chico que siempre fue maravilloso conmigo y le rompí el corazón como nunca antes nadie lo había hecho 😦 lo siento mucho, siempre fuiste muy lindo y nunca merecias lo que hice, estoy segura de que llegara alguien que te ame con todo su corazón

    • I dated an awesome woman for 2 and a half years and I even bought her an engagement ring. I think I was so full of myself in our Church group that I thought I would show everyone how holy I was by breaking up with her and becoming a priest. The seminary kicked me out after only 7 weeks saying that my ego was too big. I never got back with her and she married someone else. For three years I thought I did the right thing because I had prayed about the decision and I thought I was doing it for the right reasons. Now though I realize God would of wanted us to have been married and that I was just an idiot making the biggest mistake of my life. We were really in love and got along great. Now I am 29 and I still live with my parents.

      • Don’t listen to Male 58. God works and speaks in mysterious ways. I was 32 and crushed by a failed relationship I had thought was God’s will, also was living with my parents at the time. Not quite a year later, I met the woman I eventually married. We are married 10 years now, and God has worked through us to bring healing to each other. We can misinterpret God’s will at times due to pride, which you’ve acknowledged. Humble yourself before Him. Be still and know that He is God. Ask Him to guide you.

  1. I regret building a life with you. I loved you with all my heart. I always just kept waiting for you to be happy. We have beautiful children together, the one thing I don’t regret. Other than the kids, I wish I never met you. You were always in a sour mood. You put everything above me. You were a selfish and boring lover. You fought dirty, a quibble about running out of milk would have you screaming that I wasn’t a man and was fat and lazy. You talked about me behind my back to your friends and family. You never communicated with me on our relationship, dreams, or future. I showed my love 1000’s of times only to be cast aside and not recognized. Even still, I loved you with all my heart. I would have done everything and anything for you. You asked for the divorce and threw me to the curb like a piece of trash. I left with nothing, it was devastating. Ten years we were married and like that you cast me aside, changing all of our lives forever. No talking, no counseling, no emotion. You even divorced me behind my back. I had no say or input in anything. I’m finally at the point where I’m happy you did it. My eyes are open to the nasty monster you truly are. I am really happy now without you in my life. You held me back for so many years, you are dreamless. Good luck to you. I hope one day you find another man that loves you and the children like I did, they deserve it.

  2. I regret being homophobic and transphobic. To anybody that is LGBTQ+ I am so sorry. I mean I realized I’m bisexual now so jokes on me, but that still doesn’t excuse the stuff I said. An example would be in class we watched a movie and the teacher asked us to name examples of deviant behavior and I said “like…being… gay I guess because the girl in there was called a ‘dyke’ and it was looked down upon in the movie” I didn’t mean to say being gay is wrong just meant it like in the movie it was but I knew openly gay people in the class including the teacher so I can see why I was wrong despite apologies to them. I’ve also said some highly homophobic sh*t in ’09 when I was questioning my orientation a bit like ‘ha Bob Saget rhymes with F*****t’ and ‘You look scared, it’s like you saw a Gay’ (instead of ghost) and ‘it’s okay to run from the alter if you find out the bride used to be a dude’. I still think bad thoughts but I keep it in so now I am

I should’ve talked more, but I was to shy and because of that I’ve been outcasted, never had a relationship, sat alone multiple times, had temporary friendships, nobody to really call a best friend, my first kiss, been bullied for basically anything multiple times including by fake friends that I never got the chance to stand up to, and missed out on half of the childhood experience.

  6. I regret being such a nice person towards those who didn’t deserve it. I can’t stop thinking about this one person in particular who took advantage of my kindness last year. In reality, I believe that she doesn’t care about me at all. She probably just smiles and says nice things to me to cover up how she really feels. It hurts to realize this now, but I’m glad that it hit me later instead of never. This year will be a lot different.

    • I know what that’s like having been used and betrayed by my so-called “friend”. His behavior is immature, which is unbecoming of an adult. He didn’t take personal responsibility for his misconduct by flaking out on me and not slowly paying off his debt to me $20 at a time like he’d promised. Such people tend to take others for granted and only think of what benefits themselves without any regard for the other.

  15. I regret assuming you only wanted a boott call when we first talked. I didn’t know you very well and I just assumed that was why someone as handsome as you would even contact me. Then we lost touch because of your girlfriend, that I now know you were trying to escape. You contacted me two years later saying you always thought of me. We met that night. I fell head over heels in love with you. Acted like a fool. The over excited pushy female that comes on to strong and I pushed you away. Even though we had sex and have the most amazing emotional connection and are now 1 1/2 years into the best friend ship ever, I’m still so in love with you it’s killing me. She is horrible to you. But you stay. Is it because she is younger skinny and blonde? I’m older fat and have more grey hair than I should? I tried to stop your wedding. I wanted to tell her about us so she would leave you. I failed. I regret the things I did that you don’t even know about. I have sat outside your house and cried, even though you didn’t know I know where you lived. I’ve called her work and told her you were cheating. She didn’t care. I know where your new house is, but I’ve never driven to it. I love you so much I’d rather die than than see you with her forever. I feel like our friendship is fake. I know why you come around. It’s because I have bought your friendship with expensive gifts, and pills.
    Even though I suffer and go with out I will still give them to you because it’s the only way I get to see you. I hate myself for it. I hate you for marrying her a year after meeting me and having sex and secret nights at my house together. I want to stop taking your messages, I want to stop seeing you, I want to stop giving you my very much needed medicine. I buy you presents that are very expensive and I have no job. I take away from bill money or don’t buy food to buy things for you so you will like being around me. I regret not seeing that first night because all of this may be different. You may not be with her. I always tell you how mad I am and I’m upset at people for making me feel used. I always say it’s someone else, but it’s you. I wish I could stop loving you. I wish we had never met because then I wouldn’t feel like this. You don’t know how mentally ill I am. I e never told you. My level of depression keeps me living in a constant state of suicidal ideation. I want to die when you’re not around and I feel like the only person in the world when you’re around.

    I tried, diligently, several times, to find useful advice, techniques, and methods to understand and alter an ultimately failing marriage. All I found was a preoccupation with a non-existent mental illness diagnosis.

    I regret finding the incredible value in “relationship education” so late……where I ultimately found a far better and larger understanding, a needed foundation for making useful accommodations and alterations.

    I regret not finding (and I didn’t look hard enough, either) ‘older person’s advice, council, and observations regarding many, many things in life. (maybe we just have a severe lack of forums?)

  22. I head you show on the BBC this morning and it had a great impact on me. I realized how many regrets I have in my life and needed to express them. They have weighted heavy on my heart for many years. So I decided I needed to express them and get them out and re-open my heart.
    I regret taking my first cigarette at the age of three. Stealing my fathers Zippo lighter and Old Gold cigarettes and going out to a lot in Coney Island near our home and smoking. I got caught and was spanked. I regret that my family were addicts and it set a pattern for me also. I have smoked for over 50 yrs. and now I want to quit and it is so hard to quit. I regret that it has effected my health.

    I regret that before my father died I did not tell him how I felt about him and what he did to me, how he treated me, humiliated me, raged at his son, and was not a father at all. He did the same to my brother who died at 23yo. from heroin addiction. I needed him so badly as a father. I didn’t tell him because he looked so pitiful but I wanted to. I went to his funeral more out of duty to my mother than to see him buried. He was dead to me emotionally many years before.

    I regret I was not more honest with my feelings in my relationships. I felt so needy and weak inside i went along and did not say what I felt. I so needed to be wanted, needed, respected i sold out. I stayed longer in relationships than I should have. This built resentments over time. I regret not having spoken my truth. This made me resentful and angry. It should have not made a difference what the other person felt I should have put my feelings on the line and lived with the reality. Either stay and be honest, work it through or get out of the relationship.

    I regret not taking better care of myself. I regret not struggling through the difficulty of change. I regret finding myself angry at other people because I have not done what I needed to do. I wonder if I am giving and caring because I need to be needed or if this is who I am really.

    Shel Silvertein wrote a play/film called Little Murders. This is how I feel when I don’t live my truth. I feel I kill myself off a little more each time I don’t.

    May I have the courage to change, be loving, commpassionate, emphathetic, and caring in my life.

  33. This morning a girl did her tedtalk on keeping secret regrets and how writing them down helps rid the mind of any anxiety caused by them. So she mentioned this website. And we’re going to give it a try. Also I have been listening to the same song on repeat for two days now and it’s beautiful and pretty much ties to this with time moving forward such as the lyrics: “nothing can be changed, the past is still the past” but the artist also says “I should have wrote a letter, explaining what I feel, that empty feeling”. I’m all about letters. I love writing them. But most of the time I write letters to people full of peaceful and happy feelings. But this regret is an empty feeling. So that is why we are here.

    I regret ruining my relationship with my parents over a boy. I regret ever letting it go as far as it did where I was constantly lying and feeling the deep sorrow of regret in my stomach every time I would lie straight to their face to cover up hanging out with him. It’s been months now since any trouble has happened and I still feel the guilt. I feel the guilt still now even though I am no longer lying. Everything I do now I feel as if I should be suspicious and deceiving. I can’t shake the feeling and every time I come home I still face my parents disappointing stares because they have every right to suspect I am doing something I shouldn’t. But I cannot confront them on it and say that is no longer who I am because I am holding so many secrets in my heart. My relationship with my mom was never strong to begin with and now it is completely severed.
    I regret fighting so hard to try to get them to understand. I regret trying to get my parents to see what I did in him. I regret being so vulnerable and open to him. I regret it every day as his texts are a reminder of all the pain I have suffered through and caused my parents to suffer through for over a year now.
    He tells me he would go back. He does not regret it. He knows how badly I’ve ruined my home life. He knows all the secrets and the hiding and the covering up paths. He knows it was all off the record. He was fine with it. I regret how fine he was with it. He should have knocked me back into reality to tell me I am an idiot–although I understand 100% it was all on me and my fault entirely–but now he tells me he would go back and live it all again. And I ponder it over night after night. I would not go back. If I could go back simply to the simple moments with him. All alone I would. But I would not go back to the constant fights with my parents. I would not go back to the tears and the hurt and the worry and disappointment in my moms eyes.

    I regret still having feelings for him and having small doses of hope that things will someday work out. I regret still texting him and wasting hours of life still wanting to be as we were in the summer.
    I regret being so young and thinking it was all worth it.

    I finally regret how long this is. I have never been one for short and simple and this proves it.

  40. My biggest regret is that I didn’t take care of my father when he was alive. It was only after his death when I saw his bank passbook, that it dawned on me that he was actually struggling with his finances. But even without knowing his financial situation, I have absolutely no excuse for not giving him a few dollars one day when I accidentally bumped into him at a provision shop and he asked for some small change to buy fruits. I let myself believe the family lore that he was giving away the family funds (entirely earned by him doing two jobs simultaneously, by the way) to undesirable sycophants, not realizing that in actual fact all the funds were being eaten up by legal fees used for evicting a recalcitrant tenant. My excuse to myself was that giving a small amount once would set the precedent for repeated similar behavior!! And neither did I give him emotional support or company. One evening I was driving my children and their friends to the park and I noticed him sitting by himself on a park-bench. I actually took a diversion to avoid passing right in front of him!

    Recently on his 30th death anniversary I put up a $5000 obituary column acclaiming all that he had done for his family in the hope of absolving myself a little . But the feel-good emotion I felt was only transient. I’ll carry this regret to my grave, I know.

    I feel trapped and confined by my choice to disguise myself from others. IV missed out on so many things, but I convince myself that life would be tourcher if I reveal myself.

    I regret the torment I put myself through in knowing that I can not be happy this way, but when faced with the option to confront my fear I shrival back into the dark.

  42. I regret not doing something more meaningful with my life. I was so loved as a child. I was raised with liberty but at the same time with the needed guide you need to have to be a better person and I’m shy and feel akward in public. It is hard for me to share with people and I always feel that everyone is dishonest. I don’t understand why most of people are mean to each other and I prefer to stay away instead of try to understand their motivation. I could have been so much more. I could have tried to improve the world at least from within my little social cyrcle. I stay all day watching tv instead of doing things. I don’t think I will be able to ever get a partner as I’m awkward and shy. I take little time to improve myself and I feel always fat, and unactrative instead of doing something about it. I regret being so pasive instead of doind something to change how I feel.

  52. I regret not leaving the teaching profession years ago when I first began to hate my job. I do not regret entering the profession, however I regret remaining in a job/position that no longer brings me happiness. This is my 17 year in the classroom and honestly I began to question whether or not this job was a good fit for me almost 8 or 9 years ago. Now I feel trapped – I’m older and have so much time invested in this one profession which makes it much more difficult to find an alternative career. I regret not becoming 200% committed to searching for a new job when I first began to feel unhappy. Had I done so I would not be so miserable now. Its to the point I can barely fake it anymore – it literally takes every fiber of my being to motivate myself to get up and go to work and then pretend to be excited and enthusiastic about my job. There was a time when it didn’t feel like a job at all. However, now the only thing that matters is test scores. I spend more of my time redirecting and disciplining students than teaching them. Parents are very quick to place blame on the teacher even when their child is completely out of control. I feel terribly for my students who really want to come to school to learn as I’m forced to spend more time and energy on the ones who don’t – its not fair to them and its definitely not fair to them. I have no more emotional energy to give to this job and the profession deserves so much more from me than I can give but I just can’t do it. I regret not being more financially secure to walk away – I regret not having more faith to simply walk away from a job I loathe.

    • This is a very old post… And the person who vented this regret is probably long gone. However in case for some reason u do return…please accept my apology for such a heartless response prior…I was is a bad place and I should never have taken out on anyone but the person who I was hurting over. U fortunately for me he won’t talk to me…which leaves me feeling helpless and uncared about. My experience with the teacher who has left me at such a devastated emotional firecracker is obviously going through enough himself… As I can see he has gone to subbing instead of being so involved as before. I know you all must go through enormous pressure…and agree with what seems to b ur issue about the negative behavior is attention and time consuming more so than it should b tolerated. However what is our future going to b like without teachers like you? I’m afraid to ask and think about it too long…I’m sorry…please forgive me…and those of us who are beyond our own capabilities to cope with our lives appropriately. May God b with you in your travels and the warmth of the sun around you for the rest of your days.

Why did I marry a man who didn’t have any value for himself and how could i expect him to have any value for me or our daughter. I’m happy that it ended and I learned to value myself a lot more.

    To my ex, when you feel lonely and hopeless, just remember that it was you who walked out on your family. It was you who stabbed yourself in the back, see you thought you were stabbing me but in reality you stabbed yourself. You have no value for your 2 year old daughter. YOU make me sick. You were always soo jealous of me, jealous of the type of person i am. Its not my fault that you didnt get the same as me, and how dare you make me feel like i should be less just so that you can be more.

    In the end i don’t regret anything because I have a beautiful family of two, me and my daughter. She loves me a lot, and values me! Every time I cook her a nice meal she always says “Delicious, yummy”. Anytime she feels happy with me she gives ME a cuddle and a kiss on the cheek. Sorry you don’t deserve her love and affection.

I let my abusive adoptive mother’s slander of you poison my heart. I didn’t believe you could be sober, after decades of drugs, and I held that bitterness inside me. The drugs finally stole you from me last month, like a petty thief. I was too high and mighty to bother with keeping in contact with you, and now I wish that I could have been by your side as you took your last breath. Your death has changed the way I look at addicts now. It’s opened my eyes to the very real reality that you, like all other addicts, were sick and consumed by this demon. I wish I would have swallowed my pride instead of thinking of you as callous and unloving. Maybe if I had been there for you more you wouldn’t have relapsed after your last stay in rehab. Maybe your damaged lungs wouldn’t have finally given out because you chose the needle again. Maybe you needed me to be in your corner, supporting your effort to fight. I didn’t get to go to your funeral. I miss you every day and because of you, I’ll never judge another person who’s bound in addiction. I love you mom. I always will.

I wish I understood what the whole meaning of life is. Why it was necessary for me to survive in this world, when it’s obvious that I am destined to have people in it, who actually seem to prefer me unhappy and left to feel unloved or appreciated, even tho it’s the last thing I would do to them. I so don’t want to be here anymore…I just can’t wait for the right time to leave and start a new life elsewhere far away from anyone I know in this life. Anyone I would love to include in my life, doesn’t wish to include me as a valuable option, and those I contend with in my life are chosen to not be ignored simply because they are all I have. My child is the ONLY ONE who seems to see that I often go ignored or pushed aside and let down, when it comes to things that are small but make a big difference, time after time after time.

I had to have surgery and hardware put in to fix my arm. Never having had surgery, I was of course very scared. He hasn’t been violent with me since then, but I don’t feel the same way about him anymore. Nor will my arm be the same anymore. Everyday is a reminder of what he did to me. Why didn’t I tell? Because I didn’t want my family to think any less of him. We’ve been married 30 years. He is a good, decent man who lost his temper resulting in me getting hurt. That being said, I feel ashamed I’m treating him better than he treated me that day. I don’t know if I will ever love him the same anymore, but at least I feel a little better knowing someone (albeit strangers) is reading the truth about what really happened. Keeping this secret has been very emotional for me.

    A secret was revealed to me by my partner’s best friends Fiance, she told me that when they had split up she had a threesome with another girl (her friend) and one of his best friends!

    They are back together they have 3 children and are getting married next year!
    This secret would destroy them and the friendship, what I feel guilty about is that I said I would keep this secret but I feel I should tell my partner, he is also best friends with the other guy, he is an usher at our wedding too!
    I don’t know why but I feel guilty knowing this! The other guy said he would deny it anyway and the friend of mine swore me to secrecy and that her fiancé can never ever know,

    now, the threesome guy does have a reputation and is a known cheat but I think this is the lowest of the low really.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, The guys go out drinking etc together, I mean there may be a possibility that my partner already knows but has just not told me, which is fine! But what if it comes out? the fiancé of my friend would be devastated and I would feel so bad for knowing this.

    I don’t want to put this guilt on my partner or for him to lose a friend.

    The deal breaker is allowing her “creep”

  97. ハロー。うちは高校の時からダイエットをやっていました。体重は痩せてもまた太ったりで結局たいして痩せれませんでした。ですが、この年齢になってくると昔よりも少ない食事でも太りやすくなってきたと実感してきました。そのため、これからは本気で減量をしようと決めたんです。しかも痩せやすい時期です。ですからネットで調べたんです。どんなやり方のダイエット法があるのか、こんな方法のダイエット法がおすすめとかの知識が増えました。最近は酵素を使ったドリンクのダイエットが主流の一つですね。体の体調も良くしながらダイエットできるようです。また、ダイエットエステなどで人気の高い痩身ですね。これも美を大切にしながら痩せる方法ですね。その痩身エステにもサロンによっていろいろあって効果が期待できそうです。しかもほとんどのエステには体験コースというものがあるので、まずは体験コースから試してみるといいですよ。そして食べものも大事です。また、野菜が食べれない人は野菜ジュースや果物ジュースなどでしっかりと決行的にダイエットしましょう。

  104. I regret I am a grown woman who normally knows what to do…and yet I do not more often in the last couple years more so than ever. I feel completely at a loss as to what the right thing to do is. I know what the most people who SAY the right thing to do is…and yet I feel like it is NOT what is right for me. I have been struggling to do what is right consistently in my marriage for over 26 yrs now. Even when my husband was able to physically perform, he was pretty selfish sexually as well as outside the bdrm. However with mental challenges known I usually leaned on that as an excuse along with the others he offered me. Now as he has grown even older and seems to be a lot less verbally abusive and more interested in making me happy more than ever and yet he can’t seem to physically perform even with a new porn going at the same time in the room. I feel like no matter what I do, or how old I get, I am not good enough to deserve the efforts and love that I am willing to share with another. I have a child with my spouse and he seems to be no longer seeing the woman I know he was having an affair with for over 20yrs… and yet I can’t help but wonder if it were her that broke it off because all of a sudden after confronting him on his on going relationship etc. he is not able to get even get close to being anything more than a limp member of parliament so to speak!
    What am I supposed to do? Go without for the rest of my life? F**k myself with whatever toy I find useful? Where’s the love in that? Where’s the feeling of connection? I am not apposed to toys. But they are not even close to being real and my whole relationship has been already compromised and lonely as it were already! Everyone is against having affairs…nobody respects a woman who loves outside the relationship…but how many would love in this relationship?! probably not! maybe I am supposed to be one of the women on this earth who are simply supposed to love having sex…just not with those who love me back! I don’t want to be unfaithful…but if nobody gives a hoot about me why the hell should I give a hoot what they think!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F**k the monkey I guess

  105. My STD Saved My Life

    I lived your typical small town life growing up. I was involved in everything in high school, had a supportive and loving family, and a high school sweetheart. I graduated high school and went off to the university I had always dreamed of attending to pursue my dreams. My high school sweetheart helped me get through the first year of college; the stress, the homesickness – he was there for it all.

    After freshmen year our goals in life just didn’t match up. After three years we decided to split ways. I spent two weeks laying in bed, feeling sorry for myself, trying to get him back. It wasn’t until my friends drug me to a party when I started learning to love the single life. I discovered there were numerous guys who thought I was attractive. That one party I was drug to led to more and more parties. I went from never being around alcohol to drinking underage every weekend. My life started going down hill when I met a guy at a party. He was handsome, he seemed sweet, he had a good job, his name was “popular” – everyone knew him. We texted for a while and the texting led to me coming home every weekend from college to see him.

    Every weekend turned into my driving home two hours to see him, getting hammered on both Friday and Saturday, fighting with my family, and letting my friends slip away. I did it weekend after weekend. He made me feel “popular”, he gave me attention – sexual attention. However, he didn’t care about me. He would take me to a bar or party, make sure I had something to drink while he socialized with everyone but me, and then took me home to his bed. He did things to me I wasn’t okay with. He didn’t give me much of a choice and I was scared to say no. I had seen him fight with people; I saw how angry he could get. I was afraid if I fought back he would hurt me. So weekend after weekend I laid there while he did what he wanted, letting my life slip away.

    I was still getting A’s in college. I still had a successful job. However, I started getting muscle spasms and had acid build up from too much alcohol. My body wasn’t okay with what I was doing, but I was addicted to the attention and lost all respect for my body. I came to realize this boy was sleeping with other girls – even when I was around.

    Just then I turned to other guys for the same attention. Other guys wanted to do what he did, and I let them. They wanted to take advantage of this girl who let them do what they wanted. I went from one sexual partner, my high school sweetheart, to 10 sexual partners in a short year.

    I had lost all respect for myself. I didn’t listen to my family or friends. I let guys do what they wanted. I enjoyed the attention. It was out of control, sleeping with numerous guys in one weekend (twins even). I didn’t care if it was good attention I was receiving; I just liked the attention.

    All this came to a stop when I finally had the nerve to go get a yearly check up. I knew my body wasn’t right for quite a while, but I was too scared to do something about it. I got my test results while at work one afternoon. They said “You have chlamydia.” I wasn’t surprised. I was scared. What was I supposed to do? Who did I get it from? I had been with too many people to know. Do I tell people?

    I texted my two recent partners telling them the news because I thought that was the right thing to do. I then went to the pharmacy and got my medication. That afternoon my friend called. The entire world of Twitter knew about my STD. People were tweeting like crazy, retweeting like crazy, and favoriting it like crazy. It was everywhere!!

    I called the police in tears desperately wanting this to all go away. I had to tell my mom. I had to face my problem. The police were able to have it removed and my mother responded better than I expected. I met with a county attorney about what was posted on Twitter. Unfortunately, her response was, “It is freedom of speech. I can’t do anything about it.” I had to have the police on speed dial because for a while after this happened I received phone calls saying, “I’m going to kill you for telling people you got it from me.” However, my main concern was having to face the public because everyone knew. How was I supposed to face people?

    But facing people is just what I did. I opened my eyes to the last year of my life and faced it with broad shoulders. I leaned upon friends and family that had stuck with me the entire way and overcame people’s laughs and dirty looks.

    My STD saved my life. I started respecting my body again. I no longer needed attention from guys to be happy. I am beyond thankful that year ended with an STD and not a positive pregnancy test, getting caught underage drinking, getting in a wreck from riding with a drunk driver, and better yet getting beaten by some of the guys I had chose to be with. My STD opened my eyes to where my life was headed and helped me turn it around. My STD made me grow as a person and I am forever thankful for that.

The first that comes to mind is that I did not share with anyone out of not trusting that anyone would value my voice, that my father was sexually abusing me from the age of 10 years old on into my high school years. Due to this non sharing my father brought three other children into this world, one being another girl and they all have psychological issues. My youngest brother is paranoid schizophrenic, my sister has anxiety issues and my other brother has a personality disorder. What’s crazy is that I have a degree is psychology and having to go through therapy myself I hid this information knowing that steps my therapist would have to take once I shared this information. I regret that I protect my perpetrator to this day. Neither of my siblings know what our father did to me and I have justified not telling them by asking myself what good would it do at this point.

  109. I sincerely regret, having two abortions both being creations with my husband. The first we were just dating, based on his reaction I should have walked away and never looked back. The second abortion was after we were married and I did not trust his intentions at that time and I refused to bring another child( we had already had a son while away at college together) he was not truly committed to the relationship. I killed 2 of my babies and I know people who are trying everything to have children right now and I feel bad, I know that I made those choices at that given time to protect myself seeing that I felt unprotected. The first was based on the fact that my father was on crack cocaine at the time and to bring a baby home to that was not acceptable. The second was that I did not trust husband at all to place my body on that table. I remember both like it was the day before I did both procedures. I am still married to the same man and we are coming upon our 25th wedding anniversary. Hell no things are not peachy king but they are far better than it use to be and we have two healthy children and a new grand baby who is 3 months old.

  113. The last laugh
    When I was younger i was a big show off, I like the attention. It felt good everybody looking up to me to make them smile to make them laugh. But deep down I was lonely… I thought if I can’t make people laugh no one would like me….
    So I continued to make people laugh so that people will be around me.

    I put on my focus into making people laugh… I wasn’t focused in school. Had bad grades couldn’t even read nor write… I was held back two grades… and I was in a Special class throughout Elementary, junior high and High School… I couldn’t focus on nothing. my teacher’s gave me homework but it would never get done because I get sidetrack. I didn’t know what was ADHD at the time… all I knew I was dyslexic.
    Now that I am older life is so hard, not learning how to write and read and also going through challenges like depression anxiety and doubt…
    Yes I doubt myself everyday not knowing if I can
    Make a good or bad choice, should I or should I not and right from wrong…
    But there is one thing that gose through my mind “suicide” and yes everyday I think about it
    Because I have no other skills.
    Making people laugh doesn’t get me nowhere.

After the moment passed he made the decision to move on and I remained frozen in time. I have never loved anyone the way I loved him. To this day his Facebook images envoke the memories of the moment I let our time together pass. What he didn’t know is I suffered a dysfunctional home life, I was emotionally damaged, and believed “myself to be ugly inside and out”. In my mind, he would see this and despise me.

  120. I have a lot of things in life I “should” regret. Addiction to alcohol at the age of 13, a lot of sex at 14, two teenage pregnancies at 16 and 17, two abortions, a relationship with a criminal, drug addiction and too many parties, cheating and sleeping with too many men. Suprisingly, maybe due to my strong believe in moral relativism, I don’t regret neither of these things at all. I come from Poland, I’ve spent here all of my life. I’ve grown up in a pathological family where during the first years of my life, our dog was the only one to protect me and make me feel safe. I grew up witnessing domestic violence, psychological abuse, alcoholism, cheating. Mom had me when she was young, so I’ve had different stepdads, who, as my partners, were charming criminals. Forever looking for a job, playing PlayStation all days but smiling very nice. Being an unstable adolescent on one hand, I was one of the best students on the other. The first thing I would do after a party when I was unable to stand, breathe, sleep or eat, would be to grab a book and start learning. I didn’t need to study much though, things were just easy to me. My past experiences separated me from my peers who’s life was peaceful and safe. I felt jealous. I especially hated the “rich girl” type. My low self esteem motivated me to be the best at what I was doing. The rich girls had money but I had skills and knowledge. I corrected their every mistake during university class and they must have hated me for that. That was my revenge and it felt good. Feeling good motivated me to be even better. Suddenly, everybody was too stupid to be around me. People became “narrow-minded” and “peasants” and “idiots deserving to die”. The same with looks, I my body and face became my obsession. I never judge people by appearance but I always have to look perfect. I eat with regret, I workout, take my weight two times a day, weigh food, count the calories, forever look into a mirror and it’s become my obsession. I’m afraid of losing control over my body and mind. I have to spend every minute of my time productively cause otherwise, I feel I’m making a regress. I am awful to people around me telling them how worthless they are, cause their not ambitious enough, not determined enough. Cause they should read a book, watch a documentary, run and learn chinese at the same time. Cause I do. My low self esteem made me want to prove the world I’m the best. My being the best separated me from people. I am alone at my house with my perfectionism. Learning languages and reading books about which I have noone to share the opinion with. I forever think about losing my time, about life slipping through my fingers cause I feel I’m not doing enough of things in life. I’m not interested in my own relationship cause it’s an unproductive loss of time. I don’t regret what I did but I DO regret I let it change me into a self-centered, narcissistic bitch who enjoys hurting people who love her.

  121. My biggest regret is not checking my phone in the middle of class. This happened just last week. I’m always that good girl in the class, listening to what teachers say. In Business Education, we were supposed to make a group of two or three because it would be the group we would sell goods to the school in. My crush…let’s call him Skyler, has one of his group members, but wanted me to be in his group as well, so he texted me, asking if I wanted to be in his group. Of course, being that good student, I didn’t respond or take a peek at what my phone was telling me. When I went home, I turned on my phone, and realized that I missed out on my chance. I missed out on becoming better friends with Skyler. The next time I went to that class, the teacher had put me in a group. It was a group full of (no offence) stupid people, the people I would be selling (their idea) fidget spinners, that cost ten dollars to buy, and we’re selling them for fifteen dollars each. Our budget was fifty dollars, so we only got to buy five. We’ve been selling for three days now, and nobody has even told us they’d think of buying it. Today, Skyler texted me, asking why I didn’t reply to his question sooner when I told him I regretted not asking anyone to be my partner. It felt as if a million pounds of regret and guilt pounded on me when he asked.

  125. When I was aged 14, I transferred to a new school. I was an isolated teenager and I wasn’t well educated, suffering from low self-esteem. At that stage in my life, I began to have phases. This phase was craving attention. I wanted to be popular, so I began to lie about myself and how my life was. The lies were somewhat unbelievable and people began to feed me negative attention. My head was coated with fear and misunderstood thoughts.
    Next year (age 15), I was bullied rather bad and this lead me to having suicidal thoughts. At age 16, moving on from school and to college, I treated that bullying as punishment for lying, for attention. I regret lying about who I was and my life, for attention. Since then, I haven’t repeated those actions.
    I took therapy classes and began to understand why and how not to repeat those actions.
    Learning from my mistakes, I have become someone better, and well-educated. I have begun studying psychology, advanced chemistry and physics and literacy.

  127. Me arrepiento de no haber dejado a mi novio cuando debía. Me mudé con el, viajamos a una fiesta de su familia y una noche en nuestro cuarto, por una estupidez, me humilló, me pisoteó toda la dignidad, no dormí toda la noche y durante la mañana traté de comunicarme con mi mamá para que regresar a mi casa, pero no pude, sus padres estaban abajo, y me arrepiento tanto de no haberles dicho nada, de no pedirles por favor me ayudarán a regresar a mi casa. Ahora tenemos una hija juntos, y pienso constantemente en qué hubiese pasado si ese día yo me hubiese ido, pero terminé perdonando y aunque no ha pasado de nuevo y ahora estamos bien, no dejo de arrepentirme de no haber hecho nada ese día. Amo a mi hija, pero me gustaría no haberla tenido tan pronto, yo quería hacer otras cosas. Y nadie me obligó, yo tomé la decisión, pero fue difícil, y si pudiera regresar el tiempo, me regresaría ese día a mi casa. Y ahora preferiría haber luchado con la tristeza, que luchar toda mi vida con el arrepentimiento.

I wish I could figure out why it is that something as simple as..someone whom I can feel attracted towards, actually not seeing me as not attracted or simply a temporary fix until the real person they feel is more their type is ready to allow them their time to bat. I just don’t understand why it is that I seem to not be allowed the feeling of MUTUAL attraction ….never mind combined with compatible personalities for a better more positive relationship. The guys I feel aroused by don’t want me…and yet the guys who seem to show interest in me…don’t attract me in the least…soulmate for a happy life would have definitely been on my first priority and favored list! But can’t someone at least throw me a decent freaking bone on the sexual attraction end of it! Why must I go through my whole life…feeling as tho I have to ALWAYS compromise and make do…in order to simply avoid the feeling of no body being right for me! I hate my life and I don’t want to live it anymore! This is way beyond what I consider pathetic and degrading in difference to what my heart desires

She loved me a lot and i know that because i could tell by her moves and such. I loved her as well but i was the fool in our relationship. We were young and i was curious about adult life and i just wanted to try new things. But the “new things” proved to be the full stop. She was right to leave me because if she hadnt left me she would probably end up very badly with me leaving her. She was right.

  139. All regrets are cancelled if you can believe my theory that all is preordained from the beginning of time, including all your actions and even your thoughts. Nothing can happen in the next second that was not determined by what is happening this second. Expand that out and everything that is happening now or will ever happen was determined since the beginning of time (the big bang). Since we are all along for the ride with absolutely no control of anything….if you think you do control something…your own mind, perhaps…then that too is preordained from the beginning of time, Therefore there can never be anything to regret since; no person is responsible for anything….all preordained. You can also stop wondering about if this or that will happen or even what your next decision will be. It will be whatever it is preordained to be.

She tried to kill herself that night but the real truth was that I was afraid to come out and say that I liked girls because I didn’t think it was right but when she overdosed and lying on the hospital bed I have realized that it was my fault. I shouldn’t of judge her because I was afraid I should of looked up to her since she was brave enough to come out. She finally woked up after three days straight. She told me that she was trying to give her famliy a better life without her and I didn’t know what to say. That when I fell to the floor crying my eyes out I have realize I have become a bully to her. I finally stopped bullying her and BECAME HER ACTUAL SISTER INSTEAD OF A Bully.

I regret lying at one point, this guy I knew in middle school, I had a big crush on him, well I still do , back then he asked me if I liked him, I was afraid to say yes because there were so many other girls that liked him and I thought I’d just be seen as another one of them if I had said yes , or maybe that he was asking me to tease me. He asked and said he always saw me looking at him (whoa big secret I was really not subtle back then) but I shut it down because he probably thought I was really weird, I just didn’t wanna further embarrass myself. He’s the biggest what if of my life. I’m usually up at 3am or even all night and he’s never failed to cross my mind. Since then of course he’s gotten a girlfriend, and i just kinda figure that if he’s happy that’s the best thing, he broke up with her and I suppose moved on to another girl, this one is ongoing I believe. And like I’ve said before if he’s happy with everything and all is working out I’m very happy for that. I just can’t help to remember all the times I talked with him and all the times we looked at eachother. I think about him regularly and I mean of course I’ve tried talking to more guys but I’ve never been the best with that sort of thing so I have of course not dated my whole life but those are other stories for different times. I’ve tried to message him online and see how he’s doing but I just don’t get a response, that’s okay though I guess I just wanted to vent about it ? Oh well I was probably right back then anyways seeing he hasn’t responded. He’s in higher schools and is most likely going to get a higher position, totally out of reach for me now.

  151. Hugh Hefner has died, and a New York Times review of his life really brought it back to my doorstep that I will never know the sexual freedom he lived and advocated.

    I was raised in the South, very conservative and religious background. Waited to have sex until I was done with graduate school, “saved myself” for my marriage. Thirty years later still married to my sweetheart, my sole and only-ever sexual partner. Have been through some marital dry-spells, but sexually things have improved for us with time.

    I regret never having shared a sexual experience with other people. Getting older and being in committed relationship with “open” relationship really out of the question, I know I will never have that experience with another human being. I mourn the opportunities lost, and imagining what the majority of other human beings have experienced, as forever out of my reach.

    I fear that at the end of my days, I will have lived a sexual life very untrue to who I feel that I am. Maybe simply a “first world problem,” but I see it as a missed basic human experience that others have enjoyed and that has enriched lives.

    • At least abstinence from sex till marriage saves you from getting infected with sexually transmitted diseases, HIV and AIDS. Just because there are others getting laid, it doesn’t mean that you have to. That’s totally up to you depending when you’re ready for it. Haste makes waste, so it’s a good thing that you decide to wait it out. That’ll be something meaningful to treasure with your significant life partner, along with a strong emotional connection, with much room for experimentation and improvement in the bedroom. That’s the fun in having more practice with your significant other where you’re not experienced. Only having that experience shared exclusively between you two makes it special.

      I’m not a sexually carefree or promiscuous person, which I have no regrets. I personally believe in saving myself for “the one”. It’s because of the emotional turmoil and such from having that kind of physical connection with random people brings. I didn’t want to do something that I’d regret later if my virginity is lost to someone who doesn’t truly value, respect or care about me…not enough to even consider being with me for the long haul. Instead of dating or being in a relationship, I opted for just making friends and getting to know people in developing a social life and not having any romantic or sexual involvement.

Why hurt her? Move forward in a positive future with personal experiences that she doesn’t necessarily need to be a part of.

      • People like that are of no value in your life. They’re the type who are a waste of space. Those who truly matter are ones that add value to you–caring about your well-being, treating you respectfully, providing you emotional support when needed (like a shoulder to lean on) and loving you unconditionally. First and foremost, what’s most important is learning to love yourself before finding love with someone else (a potential life partner). Without that self-love, you wouldn’t be able to find true happiness in a relationship with another where that positive energy is shared.

Our first year was amazing and we were both content and really happy. When I had to move back to my hometown, he started taking me for granted. He wouldn’t communicate with me, he stopped sending me flowers, letters, and he visited less and less. I loved him so much that I tried everything to fix it with him. Every time he would start taking me for granted, we’d break up, but after a while he’d end up asking for me back. I would get back with him every time. I’ve been hurt so many times by him, I’m starting to get numb and cold…I kind of resent him now.
    Recently my best friend since the fifth grade confessed his feelings for me, and he’s loved me since the fifth grade and never stopped. We’re now in our twenties and I regret not waiting for him.

I wish I had broken up with my bf a long time ago because I think I’m falling for my best friend.

  172. My biggest regret in life is when I didn’t let the police arrest my abusive mother after she assaulted me one night and I’d finally worked up the courage to call for help. Maybe my brother wouldn’t have died at her hands a year later.

  173. I regret so much having chosen to move to a place I don’t like, and to share my life with someone with whom I have virtually nothing in commmon. Seven years of unhappiness, depression, and guilt. And I still feel like there’s nothing I can do about it. I went from a place and a home I loved, a place I’d wanted to be for so long … and six months after circumstances came about that I was able to move there, I got my feelings hurt by my son, who lived just a few blocks away, and I left. I didn’t just move to another part of town; I didn’t just move to another city; I moved to another state. Eight months after being widowed, and left financially well off, I chose to move in with someone I’d known for many years, someone I knew loved me (and I loved, as a friend, but I was not ‘in love’ with him) and I knew he would always be good to me. He has been, every day of the past seven years. I feel guilty that I don’t love him in the same way he loves me. And I feel guilty that I’ve gone through about half of the nearly one million dollars I’d received from my husbands estae. A good part of that I gave to political campaigns, friends and family, which I was truly happy to do. But I’ve also spent thousands shopping online, for crap I don’t need. The house is totally filled: I buy and buy, and donate truckloads of the old stuff to thrift shops. (Example: I have five Christmas trees, and a large garden shed filled with dozens of tubs of Christmas decorations, in addition to the ones in the garage. Some I’ve had for many years, but most of this stuff I’ve purchased since moving here.) I’ve gone from a size 12 to a size 18. Disgust, remorse, and apathy comprise my daily life. I can’t leave, because I can’t hurt this man who’s been so kind to me. So I try my best to pretend that things are fine. He knows I’m not fine: I won’t leave the house unless I absolutely have to; I have no friends, no hobbies (other than shopping); I sleep as much as I’m awake; sometimes I cook dinner, sometimes I don’t. He does all the shopping and most of the cleaning. I am despicable. I’m now 71 … just waiting to die. I made my bed, so now I have to lie in it.

  176. Je regrette d’avoir eue l’enfance noire qui a été la mienne. Je regrette d’avoir laissé tant de rage s’accumuler en moi, de n’avoir pu communiquer ma douleur qu’à travers la violence et la mise à mort. Je regrette mon intérêt précoce pour la magie noire et les histoires d’horreur, et la cruauté comme seul exutoire à la terreur. Je croyais fermement, suite à une lecture, qu’à mes 25 ans, mon esprit se figerait pour toujours dans ce sens-là, que je finirai comme de nombreux tueurs en série, cadavre en devenir moi-même. Je croyais de nombreuses choses. Aujourd’hui, le regret est l’essentiel de ma vie, un remord permanent qui ternit la moindre de mes réussites. Certes, je ne suis pas devenu le monstre que j’imaginais, je crois même pouvoir prétendre à la sagesse. Et cette sagesse me pousse à espérer que l’enfer existe, car c’est là où ma punition me paraîtra comparable à mon crime.

  177. I regret involving everybody I see in my own sorrows over not being noticed by my crush, making everyone else’s problems smaller than my own. I also regret using my tears as a coping mechanism all the time.

  178. My biggest regret to this day is not having the strength to acknowledge those who are lost and bullied in my life. There are people who were left out, judged, mocked, and talked about behind their backs. I should have stood up for them. I should have been their voice when they did not have one.

  179. I regret allowing myself to speak badly about a friend when they betrayed me. I should have turned to God and given it up to him but I got angry and impatient and acted irrationally.

  180. My biggest regret happened about 31 years ago when I worked as a salesperson in a major department store. I gave a friend merchandise that he didn’t pay for and was later charged with a crime because of it. I have a criminal record that has prevented me from getting a good job. I’m now in my 50’s and think about all of the things I could have done – had I not made such a stupid mistake. I could have entered politics or become a director of some government program that helps hurting people. I could have worked with children in public schools that really need dedicated teachers. I can’t do any of those things because of my criminal record. There are days when I beat myself up for making such a dumb mistake and then there are days that I hate I live in a country that’s so unforgiving.

  181. My regrets not only consist of me being reckless, but rather the idea of blaming myself in the process. The disgust that is involved, the feeling of failure sunk in. I lost myself in my deepest regret. I lost my virginity, when I repeatedly said no. I can’t consider it rape because I put myself in the situation. If I never showed up, I would have never had anything taken from me. If I didn’t talk to him, I wouldn’t be drowning myself in the thought that I’m okay and it will get better. I can only tell a limited amount of people due to not wanting to get any legal enforcement involved. I wake up every morning thinking how much I hate him for doing it. I also hate myself for not telling him the truth. I hate myself for having insecurities about my body, and someone seeing what’s under my clothes. I can’t even chew mint gum anymore, because the thought of his breath against my neck, groaning. I can’t see myself wearing that damn sweater, because all I remember is him pulling me in and forcefully removing my pants. “You’re so fucking strong…” Echoes in my head when I was using my strength to push him off me while him trying to pull down my pants. Holding myself together gets harder every day. It becomes a struggle to act as if it’s not a big deal. No one knows. No one can know.

  182. I regret being too scared to admit that I was in love with my best friend. I chose someone else to share my life with and I have regretted it every day since. I lost that friendship and relationship and I have been beating myself up about it for over a decade.

  183. I regret not pushing you off me and shouting stop instead of acting like I was fine. I hate that you made me feel like I wanted it even though I was barely conscious. I regret that it’s been a few years and I still feel paralysed and scared and I’m not strong enough or brave enough to tell anyone.

  184. I regret calling you a “friend” since you’ve proven to be much less than that. Your lack of presence during my time of need shows that you couldn’t care less about my feelings. This isn’t the first time you vanished like this. I made excuses for you and kept welcoming you back, but not this time. I really needed you this time and you disappointed me. So, fuck you! You won’t have to worry about wasting your precious time communicating with me anymore. I’m done.

  185. I regret never leaving you when I caught you cheating the first time. Yes, you were pregnant with our first child and you knew my family values were too strong to let go. I stayed and you begged, you said it would never happen again, yet it did, again and again for almost 17 years. Many different men, your own friends, my acquaintances, your old school friends and even our own co-workers. I wish I had cut and ran the very first time. I wasn’t the best man at the time. But as I grew, I matured and picked up all your slack. I cooked dinner , cleaned, did laundry, did homework with the kids, made you lunch for work, planned family trips, did PTA, school conferences, worked full time and even planned all the kids sporting activities. Never once did I cheat or try to bail out. You in turn, stayed late at work, frequented happy hours, and sometimes never came home till early in the morning. You embarrassed my at our job, at church, at home, in my community and continue to do so without reproach.
    I loved you and still do. Now I am off on my own trying to pick up the pieces a year later. Thank you for throwing me out. Otherwise I would have still been there trying to fix our relationship. It’s really hard meeting and dating but I am pushing forward. I am confident that I will find a woman that has values, integrity, morals and loyalty. Something you know nothing about. Even as I speak to you now, you are not happy. You have been searching for happiness all these years and now without me you are still not happy. I hope you find it, because as you search relentlessly for your next victim the kids are suffering. You have ruined all of our lives due to your insecurities, infidelity and continued dishonesty. I pray for you, I pray for our kids and hope you find your happiness. Oh and one last thing. Your secrets are safe with me I will never tell anyone who you really are and what you’ve done in our relationship.
