just curious on your opinion on this or if ever happened in your life about something you planned or an opportunity at work or anything that you're thinking to try and work it out even in relationships what ever fits in your life's experiences...did you regret on something that you failed to do or left undone or even let the opportunity passed by or even ignoring it somehow? like in my case i really regretted for not following my instinct or advices that i had received from my professor..i was in my third year of accountancy that time and my professor in my minor subject(literature) advices me to shift course to Education..but my hubby will not agree on it since it will take another 2 years for me to graduate during that time...but i like teaching...but eager to finish school was my goal during those times ...

I at one time wanted to also be a teacher....and English teacher but that didn't happen. Different circumstances didn't allow that to happen but I am happy where I am at. So I don't really regret it. And there are things at the time I wish had been done differently or ended up differently but now when I look back....I am glad they happened the way they did!

Hello vanities, I have one regret - I didn't have enough courage to pursue my studies in accountancy. I wanted to be an accountant badly when I was a kid but my parents and the rest of the family discouraged me. That time, people think that being a doctor is a good profession. I was a science student and my family wanted me to be a doctor ( I hate it as I am afraid of blood, can easily get fainted and I can't stand the smell of the hospital) I pursued my studies to be a medic student but at the end I realized that the profession isn't for me. As I was half way through my studies, I decided to switch to another science field so that I wouldn't wasted too much time. That's the only thing I regret...

My only regret in life is not having been able to read as many books as i can way back in high school. Now i'm making up with that lost time.

Everybody is wise after that things happen. I wish that I have followed a university course immediatedly after i finished my four years teaching course. I was young at that age and wanted to enjoy life. I did not want to study anymore. Right now I meet colleagues who were with me during he four years at university and have all progressed and obtained promotion while I have remained a teacher.
