One of my biggest regrets is that i didn't get my worth out of school. I was kind of an anti-social didn't go to dances i didn't date girls from my school nor did i befriend anyone accept my childhood friends. all of my other friends lived in different places and not in the school district. i also didn't pay attention in school and now i wish i would have. I am getting along okay though. It is done and over though and i can not go back now.

My biggest regret was getting kicked out of school. I didn't enjoy a teenagers life! I didnt get to do the school dance stuff or the parties & football games. I didn't get todo all the teenage stuff...I ended up getting married at 17 instead :( I dont regret my children but I regret wanting to grow up so fast.

i am really sorry to hear that. just a bit more study or a little more time spend on a few questions would have made a difference to your life. but there is no use crying over spilt milk.. best of luck with whatever future career you have chosen

My biggest regret ever would be not having studied hard enough to make it to university. Many employers mark you down drastically in terms of pay & promotions if you don't have a degree. It really doesn't matter that you are an idiot, as long as you have a degree...

My biggest regret is that I did not continue my education further. I did complete some college, but I never graduated. I also regret not being a better student when I was in school. I wish I would have taken school more seriously and focused a lot more.

it's true, then, that without God in our lives, we are complete vagrants. i'm sure you learned a lot from your experiences. and i'm glad to hear you're back in God's fold now. welcome home!

one of my biggest regret in life is that i didn't listen to my parents when they said that they don't like my husband.i prefer to listen to my heart rather than to my parents which i really regret but having kids is the most wonderful thing in my life but then, i still regret to have a very irresponsible husband.

My biggest regret is not cherishing the moments of "now" that have passed and become "then". They are only retrievable in memory and photos...and you spend time in retrospect daydreaming and wishing you could relive those times when you felt so alive.

I try not to have any regrets. One choice in life leads to all the other paths. If I had not married the jerk I married, I would not have met the man I am married to now. Plain and simple. That first marriage was a big mistake but I can't regret something that brought me to where I am today. However, that does not mean I am 100% happy about where I am at today. I wish I had gone to a Catholic high school where all my girlfriends went. I also regret little things like stopping piano lessons and taking a certain course after high school.

Wow what a discusson question, a good one I think. I really don't like to say I have regrets, every day is a new day to wrong our rights and do the things we think we have missed out on. I am thankful for each and every day God has given me and hope the same for all of you. Now maybe I would have some do overs! I would like to do over highschool and do a better job and not worry about boys! Haha.. But otherwise I have no regrets. Thanks and have a great day.

My biggest regret is not doing more with my time at school and not going to University. I tried going back to full time education as an adult but really it's not the same. I guess I was just too "grown up" by that time to properly enjoy it.

Mine was not spending some of my youth time w/ my frens (lost some of my social time). As you know, when we have already work, we only have little time to spend. Loss contact w/ frens even w/ family. We've already busy w/ ourself. That's happen on me.

one of my most regreteion is that there was a girl i liked from high school and i had her for a class. she knew my friends that i talked in the class, but whenever she started talking to them i stood quiet, waiting for her to talk to me. i only talk to my friends when she didnt. i guess i learn a lesson though, she is not going to talk to me unless i start talking and not waiting for her.
