Unfortunately I do. But I do believe everything happens for a reason. And I try to learn from my mistakes.

Well, same here. I've got regrets. Many regrets. Most of them were from when I was young and dumb or older and drunk. It's safe to say that I seem to do less things as I get older that make me have regrets. Gee, I hope that made sense!

yes. and the biggest regret of all was when i wasted 8 years loving my ex boyfriend who doesn't deserve me at all. he's been cheating all the time and he can't even there when i need him the most. sad to say that it took me 8 years before i finally woke up that i won't be happy for him. nevertheless, i am still thankful that i did not marry him at all. i am still lucky after all. and i've learned a lot from those 8 years. and i think i am a better person now than before because of those bad experiences i had. it's what we call, a blessing in disguise.

Yes. Sometimes I dwell on them too much but really try to move on, think about the present and future. I also believe, as you do, that they're all learning experiences.

I have a big regret that I did not take the right decisions at the right time and going back is really hard now. Sometimes you take decisions when you are not mature enough and you have to stick to them later on in life.

Yes, I do have some regrets in life and probably the biggest regret would be about my grandfather. I never really showed how much I loved him before he passed away. I never got the chance to tell him that I love him.

I have some regrets in life. LIke not being able to express to other people how much i really love them. I'm not the expressive type so it's hard for me to show other people what i truly feel. I also regret that I wasn't active in sports when I was a student. I wish I could've been more athletic so that I would have a different physique and a different perspective in life now.

Yeah, unfortunately i do too. I don't wanna think about it but sometimes it just got into me. I'm trying not to let this regret take a hold of my future. What's done is done. You can't do anything about the past but you still have control over your future. Life goes on, eh? :)

sure i have some regrets, but i do not dwell on them, because the past is the past and you can only live in the present. and yes i believe everything happens for a reason, and God does not give us things we can not handle.

As I go along, I redisign my past with understanding from today. The past can be changed with understanding "why". Why we did that, why they did that. Sitting quitely with the big guy, god, he has helped me with understanding myself and others. Understanding has helped free me from upsets in the past. Which helps me make different dissessions today. Helps me see things differently now. This has taken years of practice and Im still practicing today. I have found that it is Sooo Valuble to be my own best friend, and I keep exploring just what that is, being my best friend. All the Best my Friend'z !!!******

Let it put this way that i am very positive person though i was not like that always. But one learns a lot from life, and since childhood with different situations and circumstances i have learnt to appreciate life and am very thankful to god for what i have. I feel if something goes wrong , one should be courageous enought to accepts one faults and learn from it as it will make us beter and more experinced perosn due to it. Moreove one shouldn't be stuck in past. And should enjoy what life has to offer and lead our life and work with dignity ans should try to be good human being.

I have lots of regrets about the way I allowed things to happen in my life. I am always trying to live better and do things better in the future. i think it is wisdom to change and do better. I think people that dont change are setting themselves up for failure
