  1. I regret with all my heart falling in love with my ex wife and letting her and her family destroy me and persecute me everyday for no other reason than malice.
    I should have seen the signs much earlier, especially the mother in law, she is a repugnant and malicious old woman who only seemed happy when the family were arguing.
    I regret I let my now ex wife cheat on me for 13 months, when I felt in my gut all that time that something wasn’t right…she just laughed at me behind my back and humiliated me everyday with her lies and betrayal.
    Lastly, I regret the most having ever been born…..I wish my mum would have had a headache the day I was conceived.☹️

  3. I regret being the outsider. I regret the distance I put between myself and everyone else. Life is too short for a relationship impact zone. It’d be a privilege to be hurt by the amazing people I refuse to get close to.

  4. I regret that I have not been more focused on my goals to make dreams happen, and that I was instead complacent when I was basically running out of money to make those dreams happen. I regret the glass is half full when it could be much more full if I had been focused on goals and traction. Now I am, and I am worried that I am too late or could have been better if I had been more focused then.

  5. I regret yelling at my sister for stupid things which got me so mad I would tell her to go kill herself or that she never mattered to anyone in this world or that no one cared for her or I would call her fat. I knew it hurt her and it hurt me so much after the argument but I never had the guts to tell her I’m so sorry and non of that was true. My father found out and yelled at me about how I have made her suicidal and made her insecure about herself. I really am sorry, I truly;honest to god am sorry but no one believes me.

    I am a 15 year old girl.

  6. I regret opening my mouth and telling my mother something I wasn’t supposed to say This happened in my dads bedroom, My sister, dad, mom and I were all in the room. When I opened my mouth my mother lashed out and started yelling and screaming then she went into some horrible stuff about her past and it caused my sister to have a panic attack and she was crying and having a hard time breathing. Even with all this happening my mother never stopped.
    I too got really upset. All of what happened started because of me, and because of what happened my sister is severely depressed and suicidal. Both of us still have trauma from that day
    I was 13 at the time.

  7. I regret getting married at a young age and ignoring all the signs that my husband was never going to be honest and loyal to me prior to having kids. I regret not recognizing his continuous disrespect for what it was. I regret not walking away before I allowed myself to do some of the same things he had done to me. But most of all I regret that now my children have to deal with the pain of a divorce that should have happen long before.

  9. I regret thinking my wife hated me, and so cheating on her. Only to realise she needed me more then ever and she was the best thing in my life.

    I would do anything to go back and time and stop me from taking that awful path and hurting the person most important to me in this world.

    Forever I will drown in regret and guilt.

  10. I regret not having the courage to tell the truth in time, to live a lie and have to live with the consequences of that lie every day. I regret not being brave and having enough discipline in my life to take the path that required effort on my part. I regret having cheated and continue cheating on my partner. I do not know how to stop doing it without facing terrible consequences. I feel that my life has no meaning and that I do not enjoy the moments of life. I feel trapped in my own life, with no room for change. I wish I could go back in time and change my life completely. I feel miserable.

  12. Foremost regret is that I did not counsel my daughter enough when she refused to join the medical school inspite of getting selected. Just because she is over attached to her family that she couldn’t leave us but in the process ruined get career. I know she regrets it more than us but she has never expressed it or shared with us so that we don’t feel guilty.
    Had I shifted to a better city in time this situation would not have come. I don’t see any remedy of this regret at this stage and this will always haunts me. She was meant to be a doctor.

  13. I had flu,common colf mix With allergy for years. Started in 2011. I didn’t know. I just read it today that flu can indirectly and connect with stroke. I lost my father and grandma due to stroke in less than a year. I feel really guilty. If I knew it sooner. I will prevent myself from having those disease (flu, commOn cold and allergy). They still be alive and well. I feel so guilty tonight. I cried so hard. I ask Alloh for forgiveness. In 30 years something of my life, I left all their kindness in vain. I’m sorry. I do. I always thought that what I do, it only had effects on me. I didn’t know that I will lost my precious family because of my bad habits (do anything that causing flu, common cold and allergy). My late father And grandma were good people. I always pray for them. I face my guilt. I know that I’m wrong and indirectly causing their death. I didn’t mean to 😥 please anyone, take care of your own health. It can affect anyone around you, your loved ones

  14. I regret letting my ex-husband continue to bully and control me even after 9 years post divorce. From abusing mentally and physically while married to threatening to destroy my life if i tried to get custody of our girls. Even still I am afraid of him and he still uses our children to control me and I feel helpless and lost and now I see him manipulating our daughters to control them and it is killing me. There are days I get so depressed about not having my daughters that I just want to be done with it all.

  16. I regret staying staying with my husband who cheated, whom I comforted when he was having an emotional breakdown when his affair partner broke up with him.
    I regret trying to save my marriage for 5 years of knowing he is cheating only to provide comfort to him when they finally ended it.
    I thought it is what I wanted.
    I wish I left him as soon as I knew that they didn’t stop. I wasted 5 years of my life and still wasting it.
    Now I have to live with the horror of knowing that he really loved/loves the other woman and will be forever hunted by the pain of knowing that he always wanted to leave me and my son for her. He just didn’t have the courage to do so.
    I wish I let the other woman have him.
    Now I am stuck with a depressed, anxious hypochondriac who is totally useless at home. A lazy asshole who mopes around like a teenager. I regret investing my resources to “our” businesses only to get bankrupt. Now I am too depleted both emotionally and financially to have the courage to leave.

  19. I regret not staying in my hometown and loving the boy I really loved with all my heart. Instead, I went away to a college I didn’t care about, got degrees that meant nothing and married someone I don’t love. Now, years later, I see him and I wish I had followed my heart. I was stupid and I will never never have a marriage of love like I could have had with him. I often wonder if he misses me like I miss him.

  20. I regret not practicing when I was little. I didn’t know better, and I resisted and fought back against playing violin. Thankfully I stuck with it, and now at 16 I pour my heart and soul into my practice – and it hurts so much knowing that if I had practiced when I was young I could be twice as good as I am now. The hardest part is seeing my young 7-year-old brother who started taking piano lessons fight back against practice – it hurts so much because I wish I could be in his position again so that I could practice, I wish that he would practice and I every day try to sit down with him and encourage him and he just doesn’t understand. It hurts because I don’t want him to repeat my same mistake, and there is nothing I can do to help him if he continues resisting practice. It hurts so much to watch him be in the same situation I was ten years ago and not be able to do anything about it.

  21. I regret not marrying the man I truly loved with all my heart. I regret not calling him when I came home on breaks, when I had the chance. I regret not picking up where we left off. I knew we were good for each other, but I never acted on it. I was stupid. I could have, would have had a wonderful life with him. He’s sweet, he’s funny, he’s affectionate, he’s loving, he’s caring, he’s genuine and he still loves me. I still love him. But we will never be. We are both married to other people and neither of us will leave our spouses or our children. We have talked many times about how we can’t hurt our families and we have talked about how much love we still have for each other even 27 years later. We hug and we both feel the love (love, not lust) that is still there after almost 3 decades and it’s awesome. But we know it can’t be. We know we will never be. And that has caused us both to shed tears together as we sat realizing the cold, loveless marriages we are both in now are nothing but ones we slipped into hoping to replace the “perfect lost love” we once had in our lives. I wish I could turn back time for just one night and be a teen in love with him again, saying the things my heart wanted to say so badly. I Hope that I’ll get the chance to tell him someday how much he means to me before it’s too late. Life is so very short.

  23. Last night I pulled up to my house and found a possum had been hit by a car. It had serious injuries, but didn’t appear to have been mortally wounded. If mortally wounded it appear that hours or perhaps a day or more would pass before this poor animal would expire. I live in a major metropolitan area and called several animal hospitals. It was after 9PM and only the 24 hour clinics were open. I called and no one would help save this animal. I had to put this animal out of it’s misery. I cared about its suffering. Worried about felony discharge of a firearm I went inside and asked my wife if she had a problem with me grabbing my pistol. I was willing to take the slight risk I could be caught in the dark of night if she agreed. She said not to. So I went back to check on the animal; Still alive. I worked up the courage to crush its skull with a shovel. I started swinging over and over and over and it would not die. Nerve impulses shot through it’s body to try and run, run, run away from the danger. It was not quick. It was slow and graphic and horrible. I never wanted to hurt him. But instead I increased the suffering. I must have swung 20 times. I’ll never be able to forget its broken body attempting to flee. I’m so ashamed. I’ve lost something inside me. I can never unsee the images in my head. I can never unfeel the empathy I have for the animal. I’m so sorry and I wish I would’ve made other choices. I’m mad. I’m sad. I don’t know what to do except write this down here.

  24. I regret not finishing school. I thought I was punishing my parents, but I actually hurt myself in so many ways and for so many, many years. I have been able to get really good jobs that paid well, but I could of done so much better. While it proved to me that I am actually very smart, I so deeply regret of not listening to my parents. I also carry the fear of people finding out I never finished school. They think I am smart. At my age trying to finish school is just not going to happen. I could of had a much, much better life and not the struggle I have now. I should of made it happen. I screwed myself. Big time.

  25. I regret having 2 abortions. The father was a really nice guy, but at the time I was embarrassed to be seen with him. The choice was ours to do this, but it was heartbreaking to have done something like this. Looking back I would rather have kept the babies and just love them. It is almost impossible to forgive myself. I say “almost” impossible because I am told I can forgive myself, but I do not know how. To me, this was the worst thing I ever did, yet here I am alive and not them. It just isn’t right. I hope posting here will help me forgive myself for such a horrible thing. I was too young to make a smart decision. I need to live again, and forgive myself. It has been 40 years… of torture inside me.

  26. I regret not having the heart I have now, when I was younger. I regret allowing myself to be manipulated by society to think my choices were not ok and then doing things I would have not done otherwise. I regret allowing society to manipulate me, following the norm that was falsely portrayed. I regret the fear instilled within me because I was denying myself my true path. I regret not being closer to my parents, and loving them like they deserved. I regret peer pressure I was not smart enough to deny. I regret all the mean things I ever said or done to others, including all living things. I regret not standing up for myself.

  27. The biggest regret I have in my life, is not having children.
    I always expected a family could wait until later in life.
    But later never came …

    When I was ready to have children, I was still single.
    Unfortunately, I never met the ideal person with whom to start a family.
    Then I became too old to have children.
    Being childless is by far the most upsetting regret I have in my life.

  29. I regret, my love, that I am holding onto a grudge that you told someone … I do not know if it was true or false, but my mind thinks it was you speaking your heart. I regret thinking that you do not care when you go out of your way to show that you do. Oh how I wish you would tell me what I read was false, but would I believe it? Probably not… but I need to let go of it, and not give it another thought. That is the right way. I forgive me for holding onto your past mistakes. I regret thinking that you do not really love me… maybe you just are faking it… I do not know. What I do know is I need to let it go. I regret putting restrictions on you. Today I will lift them, and see if it matters. I cannot predict how you will carry on this relationship, but I can handle how I perceive my own . Thank you for being by my side. I just hope you do not catch on my true feelings because I know it would push you away and maybe even break your heart. I forgive myself for holding onto these feelings of insecurity. I forgive myself every negative feeling and every negative thought concerning you. I forgive you for being insensitive. I forgive you for, well, just being you and I forgive our jealousies of each other. I pray that we will work this out and we will be more than partners. I love you with all my heart . I love me with all my heart. Amen

  30. I regret doubting you, my love. I regret not letting go of outdated beliefs that do not serve me/us. I forgive myself for these deep feelings. I forgive you for doing and saying what you did. I regret not knowing what was happening to you while you were gone, not thinking that you were going through hell… not considering that what you were going through was taking your life away… chipping away your joy. How I wish I knew, so I could have compassion towards your situation and not being so selfish thinking my situation was worse, because it was not.
    Yes I developed cancer but it is going away and will stay away… and yes you kept getting hurt over and over again. We both suffered but now we have joy, together. Problem is, I have remaining doubt of your love for me. May the light shine bright where I need it most- this will heal me completely, and create a lasting love between us. May we love each other more and more until one day we can be married. I want to be able to completely forgive you and completely forgive me. May we fall so deeply in love that we will spend the rest of our days on earth, together. I long for your touch, I long to believe in us. God bless us. Amen

I get… I do not know if it is jealous, or I just remember the things tht you did tht bother me to the core- and you knw what they are… actually just one…you still married me but you told someone they were on your mind, and it was the night before we got married…and that I would never know your little secret, and that you would make sure I never knew by the way you would act, that I was your duty… and you would fulfill your duty…and that you were not excited to get married. I know they were just words, but inside of me I feel you told this person the truth, and I am living a lie. HOwever you apologized to them, and me, and you do make me feel very loved by your actions which are spotless and with no blame. omg how I wish I could just forget it like it never happened. But the other person probably wanted you and that is why I was told. God help me forget it…yes! I will tell myself and anyone, especially you.. I do not remember… remember what?

  32. I so regret falling for you. I should have continued to follow my instincts about you in the first place. Instead of stupidly dropping my guard and giving you the benefit of a dought and allowing myself to believe that you were truly just shy and afraid to make a move any further than your brief flirtatious moments with me. You played me like an old fiddle and I fell for it like a total idiot. Now I live my life as if in another dimension, no longer in love with whom I’m with not able to find a true connection with anyone else to not feel completely alone in my world surrounded by a slew of users and manipulators who prove with every action that their intentions are self motivated and I am too much in a position to get out of it without loosing everything I’ve worked my ass off to obtain for my son and his future in this dispicable world. I still fantasize about seeing you change your ways with me and having you follow me again to get my attentions, like I know you once did, for what reason I really don’t understand now. The last time I seen you in the restaurant, and gave you a dirty look as I sat there being the only one who actually recognized you. I regret having that be the last expression on my face that you seen now to remember. The fact that it still made no difference on whether or not you would make the effort to try to talk to me on your own merit proved to me once and for all, that you truly don’t feel the same as I did, and unfortunately for me, still do. No matter how much you broke my heart, with your ways, I’d still love you with every once of my being at one touch of your hand with the notion of wanting something better between us. I know now without a shadow of dought in my mind, that I will forever love a man who not only didn’t feel the same, but thinks nothing more of me than a person to keep in your past and not look back.

    With all the love in my heart Left I pray that my son doesn’t ever meet a female version of you. Although I’m sure he will… because you are no different than the rest Jim

  33. Not sure where to start
    I regret that I take care of myself so hence I remain healthy, I have wished for too long that I would get cancer or some disease that would put my crap life out of my misery. I regret having ever married (twice). I regret having children. I regret knowing the fact that both my wives have had more sexual partners than me. The only women I have had sex with have been the two women I had married. That is a big regret. I wish I had f****ed my brains out before getting married. I regret not having the courage to end my life. I regret having been born into my family. I regret that what was once an innocent and full of hope and dreams kid (me), have devolved into a sarcastic, angry, bitter, pessimistic poor excuse of a human being.
    I regret what most of us have become.
