  1. I regret never living up to my potential. I can trace that choice to a specific assignment in 6th grade – afterwards I plaguarized almost everything, including feelings for others, including my 30 year marriage (which I also regret). Sometimes the reason a marriage lasts 30 years is just because you never got divorced, and when you want to, you can’t do it financially. So a life wasted, for the most part. Sometimes I’m fairly sure I’m a sociopath (no remorse, mimicing others behaviors) but then I realize I’m not because there are those in my life I love and I spare them from knowing the real me. I’m fine whenever life is over because it seems overwhelmingly pointless.

  2. I regret from al my heart of destroying my ex boyfriend’s life. We were together for 3 years. we had a age gap of 14 years. he was a divorsee. We were in love. Suddenly all changed. I went on a trip with my friends. A guy proposed me for marriage and i thought it would secure my future. I came back.. i behaved very badly with him and also told him i cannot marry him due to family pressure. I asked him to marry someone else for his fmily sake. 6 months later, i realized i truely loved only him and wanted to go back. He fought with his parents to marry me. His mother went into shock because of the fight. Now he has agreed to his parents choise despite he loves me. Today… i can see him miserable. He has withdrew himself from everything. He does not talk to his friends. He doesnt meet them. He just goes to work and comes back. He is ready to marry someone whom he hasnt even seen. He is just living for the sake of living. The only person he talks to is me. I wish i wasnt selfish. I wish i did not do what i did. Its killing me everyday. I try to commit suciide everyday. but i fail. I dont have any courage. I am just a waste shit in this world.

    • Sound like my ex wife did to me now, after the big fight we had last month, she ask me to move on and want a divorce with me, and told me that after the marriage she reliaze that im not that man for her future and didnt even want to have kids with me! and told me that im a piece of shit that cant provide enough finacial support and emotional support for her. I bet there was a guy there that make her to insist the divorce and not give me any hope or chance to save our marriage, i ask her wether there was other man involve in our relatioship? she avoid the question and focus on attacking my inner personality.

  4. My biggest regret is not having an abortion 7 years ago,I wasn’t ready to be a mother,i was just afraid id never get another chance to have a baby.
    I didn’t want to end up like my mom and the thought that I could be better than her pushed me to keep my son.
    But I’m not better than her,perhaps I’m worse.
    Now I’m stuck in a marriage with a man who resents me ,I feel trapped and want to start over but I’m tied down to my obligation to my son.
    My son is scare of me because of my temper and very unhappy.
    If he didn’t exist my life would be different ,if he didn’t exist he wouldn’t have two miserable people for parents.

A little less than a year ago i was driving home late at night no street lights when i accidentally hit a lady who was laying in the road cops said it wasnt my fault she was most likely hit by someone else who took off but from the second i got out and realized what i had done the guilt will stay with me forever the first couple months were the hardest after finding out every detail about this woman i could from her young daughter to her mom who had lost a son as well some years ago and listening to everyone tell me its not my fault and i should just get past it and i kinda did for awhile after the first couple months went by things kinda settled down until recently i happened to be driving down the same road it happened same as i had done countless times before i swear i saw her laying there again and i froze as it all came back to me now i cant sleep when i do i have nightmares and ive started to zone out at random times and it replays in my mind its all i think about now. the guilt and shame is all consuming

  6. I was a young haole girl trying to survive in urban Honolulu. Worked 12 hours as a topless dancer/cocktail waitress at a dive a near Pearl Harbor, then drove a couple of my co-workers to an after hours club where they danced naked. That’s the place I saw a woman smoke a cigarette with her punani [vagina]. One night there were a group of really really old local neighbor island men. It was one gentleman’s 92nd birthday. They were ancient. His friend took me aside and asked me if I would go to a hotel with their lifelong friend. Even though they had told him that I wasn’t one of the girls working the club, he only wanted to spend time with me. I was young and sexy and working in the sex industry. But I said ‘NO’ and I regret till this day that I didn’t give that old man the Aloha and attention he deserved in his final times. It would have been a privilege. I missed a golden opportunity to make a beautiful difference in the life of another.

  7. My biggest regret is getting married to an emotional abusive man. A narcissist. We dated from the time I was 13, he was 16. Even as we dated, there were more tears, than happiness. I could never break up with him, because he would emotional draw me back in. He would say he was going to kill himself, without me. Couldn’t live without me. He also was very insecure and possessive of me. If I talked to another boy, he was mad. Very mad. But would also cry and tell me he knew I was going to leave him. He took me from my friends and was mad if I ever I to do anything with them. I quit sports, because he couldn’t stand the time it took away from him and he always thought iwas cheating on him, when we were away for sports. Or really anytime I wasn’t with him. Somehow, we got married and had children. And aside from our children, I wish I’d I never married him. It’s been 25 years. And I still want to leave. And he STILL says he’ll kill himself.

  8. My biggest regret is speaking out.
    I have been sexually assulted for over a year by my ex boyfriend. I had always planned on abstinence and was hurt when in the end I didnt get that. But I stayed with him and kept it all to myself. Now I am in the army and one day after it happened again I cried to a friend of mine who told a higher up in my company. I was asked if I wanted to file a report and I said no. Later when that higher up came to me, he tricked me into saying it wasn’t consensual thus he filed the report for me. Taking the situation out of my hands and having an investigation start without my consent. Which to me is just as bad as the charges placed on my ex. Now they are pursuing rape charges on him and I am stuck here without my best friend and not being allowed to talk to him or see him. His whole life is ruined because I said anything to begin with. Our whole life is ruined. I still love him, and it is fucked up that I only realize it now.
    I wish I never opened my mouth.

  9. I regret the times I was a monster, a bully, a manipulator. I regret believing so often, that the situation was at fault, not me. I regret that my sons have to live with the consequences of my being a great mom one day, and a monster the next, an equation that equals: bad mother. I regret not being able to find a way to destroy the monster in me. I regret clinging to my regret. I regret not being able to find the courage to tell people who like me now, just how bad a monster I was. I regret living this current life, this lie, where I can’t tell my story because it’s not just my story, but for still wanting to, planning to, writing in secret, selfishly, for the slim hope explaining things from my perspective offers of my own redemption. I regret that my motives are still those of the monster, still selfish. I regret wanting relief from hating myself, when I don’t deserve it. I regret wanting redemption, no matter the seriousness crime, in the form of a close relationship with my sons. For wanting everyone to get over it so I can. I regret, seriously regret the things I did that resulted in my doing a life sentence away from them. They are right to distance themselves from me. I regret not really meaning what I just wrote. The truth is, deep down, the monster believes she has been tried unfairly, circumstantially, and has not been given a chance to point to the situation as the real culprit that destroyed our bonds. I hate that by saying that I’m making excuses. I regret not changing, not really, not deep down where the monster lives. (woman, 59)

    • ❤ I think losing weight is the hardest thing! You can quit drinking, you can quit smoking, doing drugs and having affairs. You can NOT quit eating.

      I think losing weight is the hardest thing ever. It WILL happen when you're ready. It happened for me. Funny enough when I went to college I gained the typical weight. Before, I was a closet eater, sneaking into refrigerators and pantries when all in the family were sound to sleep. After a few years of college I began to see things differently. The food I was eating at 11pm, it didn't satisfy me at all. The first bite was the best, after that…. blech.

      You will get there when you are ready. I promise.

  14. When I was in fourth grade Halloween rolled around and like every other kid I wanted to have a costume that no one else had. After weeks of wondering I thought it was a great idea to dress up as one of my favourite Disney characters, Pocohauntus. Back then I had no idea what I was doing was cultural appropriation. My race stole so much from aboriginal people and completely alienised them from their own culture. Wearing their traditional clothing was a complete disrespect for them and I am so ashamed that I wore their culture as a costume. They deserve to be respected and they have suffered too much and they deserve to be brought to justice

    • Get help now. That’s the first thing that came to mind when I read your post. Get help for your depression and you’ll start to see things fall into place. Trust me, I was you more than 10 years ago. Unfortunately, I didn’t seek help in a timely manner and guess what? Nothing changed. In fact, things got worse. Depression robbed me of my 20’s so I had to start over at 30. Better late than never, but it could have been sooner if I took better care of my mental health. If you don’t have support from your family and friends, speak to a doctor who can refer you to a good therapist. Also, seek a support group. The latter will definitely help you get out and socialize with others who can relate. It’s a great opportunity to make friends and you’ll feel less alone in the world. I’m telling you this to encourage you because it would sadden me to know that another person suffered the way I did. You can have the life you desire. You just have to be willing to fight for it. Don’t give up. You will win. Best wishes!

  16. I regret losing the love of my life. I was stupid, scared and insecure and I ended up destroying an amazing relationship with a woman who was also my best friend. It’s been over 2 years and I still think about her several times everyday. I still love her and it hurts to know I may have destroyed the best thing that has happened to me in over a decade. Now, I am scared I may never be able to love another person as much as I love her. I wish I could turn back the hands of time and correct all the wrong choices I made when we were together.

  22. I regret spending almost a decade with the wrong woman. She reeled me in with her manipulative charm, and once she had her claws in me, she ruined my life. She was borderline, overly jealous, a cheater, a thief, a pathological liar, a narcissist. I gave up a promising career with little chance of reviving it now. She stole my identity and stole money from me, then lied about it. She broke federal laws to screw me out of more money. When I finally left her, she stole my belongings and tried to steal my car. (luckily she couldn’t get away with that one) She was “criminally insane”… but the only one that actually saw the truth was me. Borderlines are very good at duplicity. She was my boss and she ruined my two careers, the one I wanted for myself (by taking me away from it) and the one in which I worked for her (because she slanders me when I need a job reference)

    I regret that I gave up time with good friends and time for myself to raise her ungrateful children. I regret not reporting the abuse she delivered both to me and her children. What I wouldn’t give to reclaim all the lost time and live my life on my terms. From here forward it’s all about me.

    Word to the wise…. Live YOUR life, not someone else’s.

  26. This is less of a regret, more needing to post my secret that I swore never to tell anyone and it is giving me anxiety keeping it in.

    Backstory: My Mom is diagnosed with Anxiety but this secret is some Acute Paranoia shit… My parents divorced badly and when my sister and I were ordered by the court to visit my Dad, my Mom made him out to be a monster needing to be feared. Despite all of his past in the Navy, including things that were redacted from his records, he is still our Father and did what he could to show my sister and I that he loves us.

    Secret: My sister recently cleaned out our freezer at home (my Mom is a chronic hoarder and will never admit to it) and found a strange object: Cheek swabs of her from when she was 5 years old. Apparently some exist of me (age 8) from the same timeframe: When my parents were getting divorced.

    We think our Mom was so paranoid that our Father would kill me, my sister, or the both of us that that she saved our DNA to help potentially identify the body /bodies if either or both of us disappeared.

    I agreed to never tell anyone but my anxiety is too high and I needed an outlet.

    • Hello, anon. I’d like to commend you for your courage for admitting to your mistakes. It’s a sign of strength. You ask how to forgive yourself, which is a good thing to ask. I know that our society has become incredibly judgmental and reactionary; people are swift to send you to the gallows. I didn’t focus on your mistake; I focused on the fact you were a victim as well. People tend to forget that the people who create victims are victims themselves.

      I can’t answer your question, and nor can anyone else. It will likely be long and difficult, and the path to self-forgiveness is always unique to the one who seeks it. Look at yourself and the nature of your regret. Do some soul searching. Perhaps the answer is in advocating for awareness about this problem. Becoming an active member in ending it. I’m not suggesting it one way or another, but attempting to provide a place to start looking. I hope you can find the peace you seek.

    • I’ve had similar thoughts in the past, Laura. We give and give, but it seems those around are keen to take without a care of our feelings. It’s the risk a good person takes. I don’t know you, so I can’t say much. I do know that I have felt the same more times than I’d care to admit. It’s easy to become bitter when we feel so strongly and give to uplift others, only to be disappointed again and again. I tell myself that if I become bitter and disillusioned, then I might one day cause another to cross the line and follow my path. My bitterness would only serve to destroy.

      I would think that there’s still a part of you that wants to care in spite of this mistreatment. I think that you’ve been severely hurt and used by ones who claimed to care about you. I don’t know you, but I’m glad you were born. I don’t need to know you to feel that way. You’re alive. You feel. You have something to offer and give, even to this day. I hope that you one day rediscover that being warm, loving, and generous is a priceless asset. Not a liability. This world needs more givers like you.

  37. I regret allowing our eldest son to live with his father, at his request, when we divorced. Our youngest son stayed with me. We both remarried 9 years later. The main reason I remarried was to give my sons the stability of a family home, it was not a marriage of love quite the contrary. My eldest son would visit every 2 weeks and I wanted to show both my sons what a good family home could look like.

    Just 3 years into this marriage, my eldest son was involved in a car accident, which killed his best friend and my son’s girlfriend, who I had taken home the previous night. My son was on life support for over a week and it took months for him to walk again. The youngest son took it really hard and almost 12-months to the date of the accident he walked out of the door, did not return and it took me 15 years to reconnect with him. It appeared he had connected with his biological father who told him stories that were quite untrue, hence the reason he did not wish to be part of my life anymore.

    I regret that I entered a loveless marriage to accommodate my children. Three years into the marriage they were no longer part of my life, none of which was under my control. The individual I married was older and prior to the marriage had informed me that he was really looking for a companion for life, who would be totally self sufficient financially and required no assistance in this area. He did not want to live together but wanted to be married. We made a pact that his role would be to ensure my sons had a good family atmosphere when they visited or stayed with us and we would not show them the real scenario of our relationship. In turn I would always be financial independent for myself and sons. Today I still am, 25 years later.

    He is now 80 years old and I do not have the heart to leave him BUT I truly regret not doing it sooner, missing the intimacy of a real relationship for all these years. F/66

To hold yourself accountable, even if what occurred was out of your direct control, shows maturity and thoughtfulness – a willingness to change and grow and evolve.

The man of my dreams has moved on, is engaged and is expecting his 2nd child now. And all I can think is that should be me. I’m still heartbroken over him and the pain of the regret is still as fresh as the day I made that horrible decision. Now I’ve gained weight from being depressed. I think the only thing that will make me feel better is to lose weight. But because I can’t say this anywhere else, I love you S.A.W. and I always will.

  40. 30 years ago I regret not having coffee with the pretty girl who invited me. I regret not having the balls to tell her I didn’t like coffee, but I liked her. Dumb ass decision at 17. I always think about that and the look of misunderstanding in her eyes. I wish I could tell her it wasn’t about her…

  41. I regret that I was so broken after my marriage ended that when I met you I just wanted to be “taken care of” and I should have never started our relationship, 14 years later I’m stuck and I can’t get out, I have dealt with years of drug use, you lost a good job over 6 yrs ago because of your decision to use drugs, and to this day still don’t have a job, so I am forced to support both of us and can barely support myself, I have lost friends, I am alienated from my family, it’s a very short list of those I family members that haven’t passed away, and I have no contact with any of them due to something you have done, not that I would be “allowed” to talk to them anyway. You constantly accuse me of infidelity when that couldn’t possibly happen because you know where I am every second of every day, I believe you are just as miserable as I am but you have nowhere else to go, I believe I will die at your hand, you tell me at least once a day how you are going to put a bullet in my head, I believe you are just psycho enough to do it, I hate you more and more everyday, and I wish you kill yourself so it could finally be over, I probably wouldn’t even shed a tear that’s how much I hate you

  42. I’m really upset with God. First he allows my stepson to be murdered, he allows my brother to get Parkinson’s young, and now In the same six months I am told my dog is going to die. So what the hell is going on? His much can a person take!? If you’re there dear Lord could you please choose someone else ? Feeling so helpless and can be used and questioning you!

  43. Is there ever going to be another day where I can truly be happy and in love without being let down, dragged down and have my face covered in the lack of concern or care ever again…what did I ever do so wrong to deserve this life …
    No matter what I do…it makes no difference…people r deceptful inconsiderate and self serving., The only ones that seem to see value in my r temporary users, or challenged in some way and aren’t right in the head. The ones who I can’t get to move on r the ones whom I don’t feel a real connection with and the ones I do…don’t appreciate me.. I see other people having strong happy connections that last for years or life…yet I can’t even seem to find ONE true blue friend…not to mention love connection. I so wish I could go back in time and live my life differntly

    • I understand how you feel. This world can be ugly and horrific. Life seems like an uphill battle that has no end game. Friends seem only of the fair weather variety. You’re not alone with these thoughts and feelings. I would say that I’ve met more people who think as you and I do than those who don’t. You didn’t do anything to deserve adversity; no one does. That’s easy to say, but nearly impossible to believe, I understand. I’m in the same boat as you. It’s hard not to feel like a victim when so much goes wrong. I don’t know anything about you besides what you’ve said here, but I know that everyone is a mix of good and bad. There are things about you to value, and not everyone will value the same things. There will be those who value you, and those who don’t. Life is much the same. There are things to celebrate and things to condemn. It’s up to you to find what’s fulfilling. I hope that you will continue to search for what will fill that void.

  44. I regret the youth I never had the chance to live. I lost all of my time to illness and adversity, and watched the world move onward without me. I struggle to this to day, trying to catch up, hoping that the future has not forgotten me. Even without illness to hold me back anymore, and even though I had no choice in the matter, I still regret the time I have lost. I wasn’t able to attend my high school graduation. I wasn’t able to hit any of the milestones associated with growth and advancement. I watched everyone around me grow and advance, and could only watch them leave without me. Sometimes you can regret that which you did not choose for yourself.

  45. The only things that hurt worse than the things people do to you, are the things you do to other people. I know, I’ve been on both ends. I was bullied quite a lot in my early and mid teens, and life was hell. When I was 17 – 18 I started trying to have a social life. I was a naive and foolish kid, and I drank too much and I behaved really rudely and obnoxiously to some other kids my age. I regret my obnoxious behavior much more than the hurt of being bullied. I always wanted to be a good person, and I hate the thought of really offending anyone. That hurts me more than anything that was done to me, and awful things were done to me.

    So many of us are left hurt and damaged by our youth. It doesn’t necessarily make you an awful person. If there’s anyone you need to apologise to, try and find the courage. If there’s anyone you need to forgive, do the same.

  47. 5 Years, countless boyfriends and a marriage later and I’m still in Love with him. I thought I’d never get over it, and without looking I found something new that gave me that same high he gave me, and I didn’t find it in my husband. To make things worse, my old and my new are both married now too, and I’m living in this meaningless lie with myself and a married man. My biggest regret isn’t saying “I Do” but I regret continuing to feel this way and act this way after marriage.

  48. My biggest regret is me. I never ever paid attention to myself. I learned how to please everyone and fit in everywhere until I ceased to exist. I cannot reveal my true self because I don’t know what its like. I never made an effort to form relationships that enriched me, made me happy rather I did what I could to avoid being lonely. And still ended up alone. Pray for me.

  49. I have lived a lie of a life for a decade, in a country I do not want, with a man I do not love, a child I regret having but feel bound to take care. I went through this on auto-pilot whilst trying not to breakdown from an anxiety disorder at work. A major breakdown and public humiliation shook me to core I woke up from this sleep, found my soul yearning for life and discovering feelings I had suppressed for years. Opportunities opened up to me, and for 2 years I shied away and realised what kept me in my dark dungeon was still there. I am still here, not living. I regret not growing when I had been reborn. Too scared to live, too scared to own my emotions – fears, hopes, dreams, hate and love.

  50. I regret not listening to my mom. IF ONLY I would have listened and stayed living with her instead of moving in with my dad, my life would be SO different. I could be a nurse like she wanted. Have a high school diploma instead of a GED. Went to a real college instead of an online one. Only married once instead of 4. Only had two children instead of 5. Things would have been so much easier. No PTSD, no depression, no anxiety. IF I HAD ONLY LISTENED TO MY MOM!
