I sit and wonder how different my life would be...

I am a poet and these lines just came to me out of the blue... I sit and I wonder About how different my life would be If only I was confident and driven If only I was strong and brave If only I wasn't afraid to take chances Even if it meant I would fail or hit rock bottom And would not see the success I wish to see... If I don't try I can't win If I don't try I remain a loser...

Very nice! Remember if at first you don't succeed, try and try again.

And another thing is you can't succeed if you don't try.

I have lot of things I used to think of things I could have done but most of the time, theres just no use thinking of them.

Sometimes I (and others too) think about what would have happened had we done something differently. Or we think about why we didn't do this or that when we should have. But we can't turn back time and change things, so thinking about it does nothing but let us reflect. On the other hand, it can also teach us a lesson and prevent us from making the same mistakes again.

yes. This is true. We should know and remember that 'sweet are the uses of adversities'.

What does this phrase "sweet are the uses of adversities" mean?

Going forward in life, despite fear, makes for a life that is definitely more fulfilling.

You are right. The hard part is putting that fear aside and going for things you are afraid to go for.
