i thought that my biggest regret was when i stayed in a relationship for 8 years with a man who never deserved my love, attention, efforts and time. he kept on cheating on me several times. yet, i kept on forgiving him hoping that one day he'll change. yet, he never did. so, it was the greatest decision ever for me to break up with him. but thing is, after some years, i thought that i was lucky to go through such a bad experience. i've learned a lot and i became a stronger person after that. and i can say, that with my present boyfriend, i am a better girlfriend. so, thanks for my bad experiences before!

I don't really keep regrets. For me, they are part of the past and are responsible for what I am today. If I failed on something, I treat that as a lesson learned the hard way. That's my motto... No regrets.., Maktub.

yep. no need for regrets. we all do commit mistakes and it's just natural to commit errors... the good thing is we try to correct them. and that's the most important part after failing... the "getting up" part.

Biggest regret in life is getting married. I not only did it once but I married twice. I know now without any doubt in the world I am a person who would have done far better as a single person...

At one time while my wife and I were dating, we considered trying to move in together. But I was too scared to ask my parents if it would be ok. My Parents were paying my rent while I was in school, so I though they would mind. So I never asked. As it turned out, I pretty much live at her apt, hardly ever at mine. My parents would call me at her place and never seemed to mind. I think in retrospect they would have been fine with it.

my biggest regrets in life , I have been being too shy when I was teenager and missing out on a possible to have relationship with someone that I liked,this is happen when i was in my secondary high school. I have also regretted the amount of money I blew when I was younger too, which would have made me better off financially now. I could do more home improvements and do other things. I do not worry about these things anymore and just try to be happy and do the things I enjoy and I never thing that i will be regret again.

the biggest regret for me is that my father passed away last year. Until that time I realized what a important role my father played in my life. I love my father so much. I used to think in this way before my father is gone, My father would be with us forever. whenever i want to see him, I can see him; whenever I need his hug, he is there to hug me. but now, i know it is impossible. this is the biggest regret in my life.

The biggest regret I have in my life is the the time I didn't come home from college at the end of my second year. I still can't identify and will never understand why I chose instead to hang out in that stupid town. I got a job, moved in with a roomate, and appeared to "settle in" like one of the locals. My True Love of three years had been waitung for me back home, but when I had not come home by that September, needless to say he stopped waiting. I finally did come home one year later. But it was too late. He had already gotten someone else pregnant and was going to marry her. He confessed to me that he never would be marrying her if she wasn't pregnant, (she trapped him, the oldest trick in the book!) but he wanted to "do the right thing". My heart was broken and stayed that way for 20 years. Then 4 years ago, we reunited and got married. But it is not a happy ending. We lost a lifetime together...the children we would have had...the years together building something to be proud of and look back upon...all taken away because of one stupid year! And my stupidity! His too, for being swindled by that woman. It is too late now to have the babies I mourn for everyday with my tears. All the Christmas's, birthday's, all of it is gone. If I had not procrastinated my return he and I would have been together 27 years now.....So yes, if I could have one wish I would sell my soul to go back in time. And I would come home as fast as I could to the only man I ever loved and ever loved me. I would come home to our life we were meant to live together.

There are quite a few regrets that I have... I wish that I had spent this past summer differently and with different company that wouldn't have gotten me into so much trouble and I wish that I had went straight from high school into Virginia Tech instead of going to community college.

father and son - father and son at the sunset
The biggest regret thhing is not what I have done in past, but what I have not been done in my past. My biggest regret is I was not being a good son for my father. He passed away 2 years ago in heart attack. Although I have fulfilled his want, to see me graduate from university, but I cannot be his reliable son. Still now I regret that I never has a great father & son time, I never spek to him my trouble, I always kept it.

my biggest regret was to listen to other people and let them interfere in my marriage. It helped to cause my breakup, and I know that I will never do that again. I don't even tell my family and friends about my relationship now. My boyfriend and I have a great relationship.

I have two BIG regrets. First off I won a pretty nice sum of money in a lawsuite when I was 19. Instead of using it towards a used car that I wanted, I spent it on stuff that didnt matter as much then OR now. The second was NOT taking up an internship when I was still in college. Now I gotta wait till I complete 6 units in May then I can try again. It kept me from getting job experience and possibly from getting a job sooner in the area I wanted to be. But I am trying to correct at least the latter. As for the car... well someday but dont know when that will happen :))

I don't regret anything that I've done in my life. That's what life is all about making mistakes and learning from them. Hoping that from your good or bad experiences you are able to educate someone else, before making that same mistake. It's essential to make these mistakes which mold us into the mature adult we're suppose to be. Trial and error, that's how the process goes without it we would be less human. This process is how good, positive, strong minded individuals with a backbone who stand up for what they believe in, are created. We also call these individuals... leaders/ positive role models. It's always true that we should be moving/ looking towards the present, instead of worrying of what we did in the past.

You can't change the past so I make an effort to never regret any of my decisions. I sometimes worry about something, but I either try and correct the issue or learn to accept it. Your life should not be about regrets.
