  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.☹️

    • I am so sorry. Try to picture where you will be five years from now (best case scenario). You deserve better, so go seek it – after you allow yourself time to heal.

    • Sorry to hear what happened to you. I’ve been in a similar situation. Don’t know what is worst: the betrayal or the lack of respect this people show towards the feelings of other han beings. It must be very difficult for you. At least you did the very first step by getting divorce from that woman. I’m still strugling to solve that issue myself.

  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.

    • I have spent most of my life friendless. At first, through bullying, in adulthood, by choice. I understand you being guarded in embracing friendships/relationships. I am arguing with myself to try to make friends with people at work or church, but it is complicated. Why invest in relationships that are doomed to either cause misery or fail? I’m not sure what is the better path in terms of my deathbed life review. Do I want to reflect upon a lifetime of failed relationships? Do I want to regret not trying? Or should I seek the possible one rewarding relationship that I find by seeking it? I think that I just answered my own question. I am going to try to force myself to try to find that one, rewarding relationship. I wish us both luck!

      • If you are coming from a dysfunctional family and have been bullied there and then at school,your trust in people will have been seriously shaken up,coming from a dysfunctional family,that bullied you and did not care about you,you certainly would not have learned how to socialise and then at school where your vulnerability showed up and attracted any passing bullies,would have reinforced you weariness of human nature,but there are good people in this world who will love you just as you are and will respect your boundaries,granted there are not many of them in our society now ,a society that verge on narcissism,but once you find such a preson, hang on to them,sometimes one can only have one good friend in life,the true friends I have acquired in my 75 years of life can only be counted on the fingers of one hand!

  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.

    • Everyone says things in anger that they do not mean. My oldest three daughters are 22, 20, and 17. When they argue, they say terrible things. But when things calm down, they apologize and realize that it was in the heat of the moment. Try to find an activity to bond with your sister: Cooking, shopping, going to a beach or lake. The more that you create happy experiences, the less you will have negative experiences. Hang in there. The teenage years are the toughest in life. You will get through them as long as you keep a sense of humor and embrace any and all positive interactions with your family that you can have.

  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

  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.

  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.

  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.

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 .

    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

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

I regret bring an innocent child into this awful world, dispite the fact that I love him dearly no matter the fact that he makes me crazier than ever with every action of being more like his own biological excuse of a father he has, knowing the some day, he will probably turn out to be just as pathetic and selfish and not truly be willing to be the person he could be, because he’s not known a better role model in his growing years as a male. Dispite my efforts… mom apparently knows nothing, needs nothing and deserves nothing but to settle for loving him dispite his careless, self serving lazy ways even if it means being left with nothing in the end.

  31. I regret not having that cup of coffee you invited me to. I fell in love with you the moment I saw you and because I was in a relationship at the time, I felt ashamed that I could have such a powerful connection to someone other than my then-girlfriend. You were so beautiful and when I saw you that day you rode your bike in to pick up your new Tiguan, I was utterly enthralled. I think about you often and am seriously sad that I will never know what it feels like to be in your space. You captivated me and I still feel that intense pull towards you; I know in my heart that I missed the opportunity of a lifetime. By now, you are probably back in Germany, living what I hope is an awesome life—as wonderful as you are, you deeply deserve someone who will spend the rest of their days loving you and lifting you up. I will never forget you, nor will I stop regretting that I didn’t go with my intuition.

  32. I regret, as a naive 20 year old man, who had never dated, going to my 36 year old female cousin for relationship advice – only to have her begin an affair with me that lasted 18 years. I never could envision that it would eventually end. That the woman I felt infatuation for, who I had made my everything over so many years, could unexpectedly and suddenly betray me.
    I was so emotionally invested… I never stopped to consider the emotional harm this could bring to me, my parents, and her loved ones. I feel such guilt, so angry for compromising my morals, to have ever engaged in this… and that I cannot undo the triangulation, gaslighting, and blame she inflicted on me – while never admitting anything herself. I feel so ruined and that others will see the blame I hold in my heart… and blame and look down on me for my poor judgement and selfishness that only now I understand and deeply regret.

  38. When I was 9 or 10 I regret touching my sister innapropiately. I didn’t know what I was doing was wrong at the time. I did it without thinking. I did nothing too far but I touched her while she was sleeping. I regret it immensely, and it’s so fucked.

  39. My biggest regret is to have taken my friend to our house when she became homeless and then have left her alone with my husband when I had to travel abroad because of my job. You can imagine what happened next. I lost the trust in my husband and a close friend.

  40. I regret being born! I find nothing about life worth living it! The whole idea of life is stupid – the moment you’re born you’re sentenced to death so all you do is literally heading towards the grave. It may sound bad but I haven’t found ONE thing worth living for

  41. I regret still not understanding why it seems to be that anyone I know, or have known in my life, doesn’t seem to truly appreciate or want a closer relationship. I’ve tried time and time again, but always eventually come to fade back into the reality that everyone would rather spend their time, with someone else other than me. Yet two people in my life that I really only tolerate out of mostly sympathy, seem to be the only ones who actually do want to spend more time with me. Two brothers whom I can’t tell which one is more messed up and broken than the other.
    I regret trying so many times trying to be closer with others only to have them back stab me or simply back away and forget I’m even alive. I just don’t understand. I know I’m a good person and have a decent sense of humour and like to show my appreciation and love with their company etc. Yet, I always end up sitting completely alone, looking around trying to pass the time away, taking notice of their actions etc. That not only don’t include me, but seem to not even blink an eye my way. I wish I knew why I’m not really liked that much…why I don’t seem to be important enough to make some kind of effort towards me, after I’ve tried with them. 😞

  43. My boyfriend and I broke up back in July. I went and confided in a friend and ended up telling a secret of his. We ended up getting back together at the beginning of October, but I’m afraid it will slip up in conversation. He doesn’t hang around her or speak to her significant other but I’m worried he will be angry with me if he found out. I told her 3-4 months ago now but her memory is great. Should i just let it go? It was an honest mistake.

  44. A few years ago, I fell madly in love with my best friend. She felt the same way, I know it deep down. But I just never plucked up the courage to go and ask her out on a date. I expected that with the feelings she had for me, she would be the one to ask me. I wish I’d known more about the rules of dating back then. If I had a second chance, I would march right up to her and tell her “I just love you” over and over again. To her, I will always be the boy who couldn’t man up, and to me, she’ll always be the girl who got away. But I learned an important lesson from that experience. Now if I love someone, I just go and tell them and ask them how they feel. The worst they could say is “no,” so I’ve learned not to let that pressure bother me too much. I’m still not sure I understand why the man has to do the brunt of the work to get a relationship going, but better to accept it and move on and risk an even greater loss. If I ever see this girl again, maybe I will close the loop on this. But that isn’t likely to happen, as too much has changed since then I believe. I just have to move on and cut my losses, even though my regret over this will probably last a lifetime.

  48. I regret not staying in a new city with exciting experiences ahead. I moved away for my last year of university, but after 1 week I felt lonely and decided to move back in with my parents. 2 months later I massively regret my choice, seeing I am not achieving anything by staying here and all I could have done there. Is like a year lost and the thought of regret for staying home is eating me.

  51. I was raped since 4th grade by my step dad until my early 20’s. My mom was sick for many years and died when I was 17. He keep my sisters and I after mom passing away. No one knows not even my husband and to keep my secrets I have to pretend that he is this awesome, kind, best dad best grandpa. As I get older and time passes I get more and more the urge to just scream to everyone everything he did. I was verbally, physically and mentally abused. He controlled me like a jealous husband. I don’t know what to do. I feel like my husband would leave me and take my kids. I have never ever left him alone with my kids not even for a second. But I am emotionally I’m just afraid of what my in laws , kids and husband will do/think/feel.

    • I’m so sorry you are struggling with this. I wish I could tell you how to get past it, but alas I’m struggling there too. Have you talked to the step dad about it? Ever said anything to him about it? Did he try anything with your sisters as well?

  52. I regret not going to the arts highschool of a near state. I was afraid and didn’t gave it the importance it actually had and decided to stay in my small town at a public school. I turned out to be good at math as I went to National olympics, but not good enough to win anything nor love the subject. A lot of teachers have told me to study something related to sciences as I’m good at it, but honestly that only brought me doubts in myself and what I wanted to study. I stayed because I was excited about going to the same school as my brother and meeting new friends, but honestly my friends arent that great, my group is shit and the school and its system is even shittier. I dont know if Im good enough at arts and if studying them will dissapoint people who had high hopes with me and I hate that. If I had gone to that highscool I wouldn’t have those doubts, and practice all arts in a new place, with new friends and in a state who has better life quality and more infrastructure. I hate myself for letting pass that opportunity. I only not regret that by staying I met my boyfriend who has taught me to love and express myself and not caring about what others think. It makes me sad that if I had gone to that highschool I wouldn’t have learned those things with hin but I would have had a better development in my talents and went to any University I wished for (as that highscool lets you study noy only in an art university but any university you want). I regret everything that decision brought except meeting him.

  53. I regret leaving someone I genuinely love(d) for someone else who seemed better for me in that moment. I had an affair. I was too gutless to tell the first person at the time and they still don’t know I cheated. In fact they’ve never known the real reason it ended. Now, three years on, I am married to the second person, who is wonderful and deserving and good for me, but is not and can never be the first person. I think I might have married this person because of the guilt I hold within me that I selfishly broke the heart of someone I desperately love, and nothing can fix that but at least I can make losing the first person ‘worth it’. There are other details too but they might remove my anonymity. The guilt and secrecy have caused me three years of pain and attacks of anxiety that I never had before. I strongly believe I should hold that and live with it because it’s what I deserve. But sometimes it’s really really hard.

  54. I regret letting myself be talked into doing something I knew was wrong by someone that was supposed to care about me. Now I’m tied to this person and this secret and can’t get away from it. I’m expected to give sexual favors because I was helped in a time of need. This person is like an extended family member (not actually any relation).

  55. Opening up to a person, whom only sometimes seem to enjoys seeing people hurt and vulnerable and sabotaging their relationships. I’m a man. Prideful. I trust my pride more than my love. I’m not sure if its bad or good, but does it really matter? It saves me from malicious relationship where I sometimes I choose to gut it up but it won’t allow me to. I finally decided to be bigger then my pride and opened up to a female person. Cried on her laps and she used it to sabotage my then relationship. Ended 3 relationships that month (her, my now ex, my ex roommate) it looks like a cheap spanish drama. She didn’t deserve to see me like that. I was a fool to open up like that even though I knew I should have listened my gut. God I hate myself even more for every drop of tear I shed on her laps. Fuck this. That time will never come back. How could it. I have to be more careful in the future.

  57. I regret so much. I regret not breaking up with my now wife when I knew it was a lie. She messed around with my friend. I stayed because I had no confidence at the time. I am torn because part of me wants to leave her but we have 3 great kids and they would be destroyed. I also regret that I never fought for the one I can call the love of my life. What I would give to just talk to you. I wont cross that line. It’s been so many years. You have a family. I wont disrespect them or you by contacting you. I should have called you back when you reached out to tell me you were getting married.. I should have fought for you despite my controlling parent. I wish I had to do it all again. But, that’s not real. I would have given you so much more than him. So, that’s my personal agony. I am successful. I am very wealthy and I am numb because I am not sharing it with you. I worked hard to get where I am and I only now realize what fueled me was my drive to prove many people wrong and that maybe someday you would see what I accomplished and was proud of me. I am so screwed up, I know. 😦
    I have millions but I dont have you. That makes me poor in so many ways.

    I guess by being anonymous and writing the truth in a space where nobody gets hurt makes me feel a little better.
