    Regrets!

    Just wondering what people may or may not regret doing in life,
    i have many but don't see much point regretting things you do as it's too late to change it after the event!
    It's the things i think i should have done that i regret!

    E.G
    If i'd invested in so and so i'd be in a better position now?
    If i'd gone to talk with the cute girl that smiled back at me?

    Yea but you're here now and that's what counts.

    To regret the past is to forfeit the future.

    ^^ I second what Rigger said.

    I also regret spending my life trying to prove myself to others and not being more astute and focused and easily prone to quitting.

    I should have done a film making, computer or business course instead of working in pubs for 6 years of my life in the mid/late 90's.

    I was once offered a chance to go live/work/play rugby in the US for a year. I didn't because my girlfriend at the time said she didn't want me to go. We broke up 6mths later.

    I was accepted into a renowned journalisim school. I declined it because my girlfriend at the time said she didn't want to be in different cities. She dumped me literally 2 days after I'd called to explained I wouldn't be attending.


    I regret women.

    Over-all, I don't know.


    But generally, I don't regret anything big. Hindsight, we shall note....is always 20/20.

    ^^^Yes but the pain and frustrations with women afford an element of perspective as long as you no longer let the the "little head" do your thinking for you. There's more to life than chasing pussy. It took over 30 years to figure that out though!

    I don't even regret not marrying the Rockefeller heiress I lived with who had a 30 mil bank account. Though all that money is seductive.

    I regret not finishing any of the 3 university degrees I have started.

    I regret not shagging many women that I had the opportunity to do but didn't.

    I regret having regrets.

    Frankly, I regret not having the same cynical, hard attitude as my ex colleagues and in particular my ex wife. It has cost me a LOT of money. I regret the lawyers and accountants that I have had the misfortune to consult- they were money grubbing shites, who offered nothing of value. If you are paying for intellectual capital, my advice is cough up and buy the best.

    I wish I hadn't sold my pad in Little Venice, but so what.
    I wish I had actually done the deed with some of the Beauties that were available, rather than getting so pissed the Vicar could not perform.
    I wish I knew then what I know now.

    Thats about it. No complaints though.

    I value all my experiences and decision and can not regret them, they may not have been enjoyable, or the right thing, but I got something out of them in any case, and they have made me who I am today.

    If I were to have regrets, that would mean I regret becoming who i am..

    Philosophical enough for you?

    I am what I am because I did what I did.
    I can live with it.
    Didnt see that till after my post, same thing I said with less explanation..

    I bitterly regret taking this girl back home last night. Her big hands should have had alarm bells ringing in my head.

    I regret not going to uni straight after school. Would've made my life a bit better sooner. Oh well. Better late than never.
