I think that someone happy, reguardless of what the shouldn't or should have done in the end should have no regrets. If a person takes many wrong turns through out lifes highway, but misses a few good chances to make a better life along the way. Then a few years down the road, gets on track on their own, and makes choices that may lead to something wonderful. That they would never want to give up. They have to actually sit back and think, maybe just maybe, if I had chose to do something good back then, I wouldn't be where I am today, and have what I hold dear. Its true they could have had a better or equally happy life. However, would they have met their partner, or had the children they have had etc. Probably not. Ex of this. I was twenty young and very nieve, I met a guy that seemed really nice. We moved in together, and he got abusive. I lived with him for like 4 years, we ended up having a son together. We are no longer together today, as I finally got up the nerve to leave. I made alot of bad choices in the past staying with that man. Hoewever, today do I ever regret meeting him or being with him, no. Because along the course, of that bad time, I was given something so great, and that I love so dear, I have no regrets of what lead to it. Because if I had made other choices instead of he bad ones I made, my son wouldn't be here today. Its true I could have met someone else and had a child. However, it wouldn't have been my son, because my son came from the man I chose at the time to be with. The person my child is today, is part of that man. If it was a different man who fathered him, he wouldn't be the same child.
