Mistakes have always been a constant part of my life. I made mistakes when I was young and I still make mistakes now that I'm a young adult. My mistakes became worse and worse as I grew up. However there is one mistake that I know will be forever etched in my memory. It's something that I still feel guilty about even though many years have passed. I turned away from friendship. That's my biggest regret.

My biggest mistake is not to be more generous with lovely people, friends & family. When someone passed away (parents, friends...) you feel guilty not to have given enough help/sharing time etc.... Time goes by and your realize later on is only true love the most important thing in our short human live. There is a popular saying" we learn by mistakes",don't you think?

Hi dodofone. It is true, we learn by our mistakes. In fact, i learned most of the most important lessons in my life after i made mistakes. "Experience is the best teacher" as they say. Thank you for sharing.

We all make mistakes in our lives, It is just part of human nature. Som of these mistakes we deeply regret while others we do not. I lost a best friend in high school for silly misunderstanding. I am often haunted with regret that i didn't do more to save the friendship. If i could go back in time, that is one mistake i would try to rectify.

Hi sender. I guess the mistakes that we regret the most are those that concern our relationships with other people. Your mention of the word "haunted" reminded me of my own ghosts. What's just sad is that we can never undo what we did in the past. Thanks for sharing.

Hey! Everybody makes mistakes in life. Some big and some small. But thinking about the past all the time will never allow you time to enjoy the present. Learn from your mistakes and dont do them again. I always count my blessings, think that whatever happens, happens for good. That makes me feel better and move on.

My biggest regret is loving two men that didn't deserve my love & i wasted all the years doing that. We all make mistakes but they were the two biggies in my life. I also made alot of other onesbut they take the cake.
