I have things i regret in my past. Things i wish i had done different or not at all. The thing is though you learn from your past. So even though i regret it i am glad i made the choices because i can learn from them and make my future better.

there are times when i have regrets and wonder about the question "what if" ..what if i've done things differently, this and that could have happened and stuff. but i guess that's what life is all about..we take chances/risk..and we learn from our choices/decisions and mistakes that we make..

I used to have many... I had a lot of what if's..and should have done this and that which i know makes me feel unproductive and weak at times... it's but common for us people to have things that we regret and would have wanted to return to and polish in the past yet the reality is we cannot do something about any of those anymore... I've learned that keeping them and thinking of them most of the time will just consume too much of our time and energy making us not enjoy and appreciate what we have at present... Maybe the best way to cope with those is to not totally eradicate them in your thoughts because it won't be that easy... (I know.. coz I'm still experiencing it once in a while)but to used them as your grounds..basis maybe for your future plans... stop feeling frustrated of what did not happen because of what you didn't do...(it's not easy saying it, yet I want to believe it's proper and true...)shift your attention to the things that make you feel good at present rather... You can always keep your memories of the past but it's better not to dwell on them...

well, there are so many things i have done in my younger years that i realized now that i am older, those things should not have been made like wrong choices, wrong decisions in life, etc.., there are just so many to mention them all. not that i do not have a happy life now, but things would have been better if i have made some wiser decisions earlier. not related to the above, but currently, i can think of recent something i shouldn't have had. i invited in ex via email to be by referral here in mylot. and really, nothing was going on, it was just a simple "hi", join mylot, it's interesting. things like that. few exchange of PM, just 2 or 3 if i am not mistaken. the thing is, his wife apparently was very jealous of me and now his wife has been attacking me here in mylot. as in really nonsense talks, sending me messages in my yahoo, multiply, friendster, and all other sites. it sucks. she s u c k s! i regretted inviting him here. but my conscience is clear.

I have a couple of regrets about my life and it's not because what I went through but it's what I put others through. I wish that I hadn't gotten arrested a couple of times and cost my poor mother so much money in court fines and fees for being locked up in juvenille detention facilites. I hate hurting my mother because all she's done for me in my life is try to help me become my self more. I just regret causing my mom more work then she already does and making her spend her hard earned money on the stupid things that I have done. Other then that I'm pretty comfortable with my life.
