Every looked back and thought I should have gone for it?

I was just thinking back in time about an old flame that I used to have. I often wonder if I had just pursued that a little longer I would have known. Only problem at the time was that she was married and having problems. She had showed interest in me and separated herself from me do to the feelings she was having. I never persued this even though in highschool I had often thought of her but never went for it. So what do you think did I do the right thing by leaving it be? Or should I have gone for it just to see where the chips would fall?

When I was a senior in college I was engaged to a guy who lived in a different state and was planning to move in with him after graduation. In February of that year I was offered a really terrific opportunity to be a Leadership Consultant for my sorority. This was a great honor because it was a position that was rarely offered to specific people. You had to apply and be chosen from your application but I was given the opportunity without asking for it. I am not a big fan of staying with strangers or of living out of a suitcase, two things I would have had to do for nine months if I took the position. Not to mention being away from the fiance for the duration, which was an even bigger argument against it. So I turned down the offer, assuring him I'd never resent him for it. Two months later, he called off the engagement. If we'd stayed together, I wouldn't have resented him or regretted not taking the opportunity but since we didn't I break that promise two or three times a year. I do regret not going and wonder now what might have come of my life if I had.

All the time. There's so much that I wish I could have done. Well, maybe at least done over too. I think everyone could always use a do-over at least once in their life. And I've had so many situations where I doubted myself at the time or procrastinated. And look where it got me. I'm pretty much empty now.
