I've been alive for 20 years, and in those 20 years I've learned a lot of things. Although I try not to linger on regret, there are some things I've done that I wish I hadn't.
I regret choosing to live with my dad after my parents divorced. Living with him was complete hell, even if I only did it for a couple of years.
I regret not learning how to manage money properly. I now have a shopping addiction that centers itself around expensive clothes and shoes, not to mention make-up.
I regret never learning how to study. I might be doing better in university had I learned how to discipline myself and how to study. Now I'm struggling through an Arts Degree because I don't know what kind of studying techniques I need to use.
I regret becoming so independent. I now find faults in all of the good guys that I date, and I fall for the guys who treat me like crap. Two cheaters, one user, and a few losers later, I'm just now starting to learn that I have a problem.
Regret, however, does you no good. It makes you worry about things you can't change. So forget regret, for your health and for your sanity.
