    Default Regrets

    How many people have regrets? what are your regrets? what is your biggest regret?
    If you have none, why?


    I have quite a few mainly related to my own behaivour and how i have conducted myself.
    My biggest regret is from when i used to drink and use drugs and my children found me od'd-yeah lets keep it honest and real.
    There are also a lot of things i have done that could be interpreted as big mistakes but that have shaped me into who i am and though they may have been painful times/things i don't regret them.

    I regret that I even have regrets that keep me regretting them.

    I actually have no regrets.

    I think that even your mistakes make you more of a person.

    You are the sum of all of your experiences. If you don't like something, change it, but don't regret it, learn from it.

    there are a million things i would've done differently had i known then what i know now but realize you can't expect to know things before you do...ha! if that makes sense.

    I guess my biggest regret would be how I've wasted away my life for the past few years and allowing my unconfidence/shyness define who I am. Sucks. I have to keep telling myself it's never too late.

    I think it's not healthy to think about regrets too much. Rather than regret, I tend to tweak my behavior if it had a negative effect on me or someone else and I'll go from there. Life is a learning experience and we all make mistakes. There's no need to regret being human.

    I don't really have regrets. There are some things I would have done differently but I just make the best of the 'now'.

    I have trouble remembering the past. I'm more concerned with my future and I stress over making good choices in the present so that I have security. I fear making mistakes and having to regret anything.

    I think that those pulled by Si may be more likely to have regrets...
