Do Tell: Is There Anything You Really Regret?

I stumbled upon the amazing confession site Isoregret.com and was moved, perturbed, and amused by the things people revealed they regretted in their lives.

From the admissions almost all of us can relate to ("I so regret fooling myself, and him, into thinking I loved him"), to the ones I hope none of us will never relate to ("I so regret ever marrying that douchebag of a man . . .and I also regret not killing him . . ."), these regrets are definitely compelling.

Is there anything you really regret in your life?

I regret a lot of things. I developed a drug dependency last year, and made my friends and my lives a living hell. I'm almost 7 months sober now and I have a really good friend who got me through the worst of it. I owe my life to him. But I messed up some friendships beyond repair, I lost my scholarship, and I still wont ever know what I missed out on getting a chance to do on all those days that I was passed out or hungover sick. I wish I could take it all back.

I regret not spending the night with my aunt the night before she died. We were all at her house that night and she asked us to spend the night (she knew her stay was soon to be over). My mom told her that we would just come over after church and the next day after church my cousin called hysterically, my auntie wouldn't wake up, she had died in her sleep. Me and my sister was in my cousin's room across the hall from my auntie's room the night before, and as we laughed and talked she had this sad, miserable stare as she laid in her bed. I was only 11 so I didn't really understand. But as I sit and answer this question, it's all coming back to me.

I regret getting in a car with a drunk driver recently. I am thankful to be alive today and no one was seriously injured. I have a lot of consequences to face now and I regret every decision I made that night.

i regret taking the internship that i did in college. i'm stuck working for the same organization, and nobody will hire me because my resume sucks. i would have been better off without an internship. i also regret ever dating one of my exes. i have been on a self-destructive path ever since, and i don't think i will ever get myself into an actual relationship again because of how severely he hurt me.

My grandpa had cancer in his pancreas, brain and lungs when he died. He looked black and blue, and really swollen and nothing like how I thought of my grandpa to be. Well, we were leaving dinner one day when it got really bad and I was afraid to give him a hug and a kiss, because I was only 5 and to me, he was like a totally different person. He told my mom that he understood that I loved him, but I just didn't know what to make of how he looked. He died the next day, and I wish my mom forced me to hug him. I wish I knew better to know that he was still my grandpa, and even though he looked different, nothing changed. I literally regret that everyday.

I regret taking my friendships for granted when I was younger. I wasn't the best friend that I should have been. Now I'm an awesome friend, but I had to learn how to be a friend.

I always wanted two children and I only have one. That would be my only regret in life. Adoption is not an option because of money.

Something I really regret was not spending more time with my oldest cousin when he would come to visit. He would always want to spend time with me but I was a dumb kid who rather spend time with my friends who I saw everyday. He passed away in 2004 and since then I have always regretted not spending time with him.

I guess one big regret I have is that I didn't apply to more than 1 college when I was in high school. At that time, I wish I had stuck to my guns, and applied for a private school in NYC, which is where I STILL want to end up, eventually for a little while. At that time, I let Mom diciate where I should consider applying, and she really pushed for an in-state college because of financial issues.

there's really only one thing that I regret that was a major mistake I made years ago that affected the trust between my parents and I. That being said, my life is very blessed and my countless minor regrets don't bring me down.

Okay, comment no. 1 completely confused me...There's a lot I regret in my life. But ultimately it's turning out fine, so I can live with those regrets.

I regret almost every fight I had with my mom. And yet it's impossible not to fight with your parents

that first comment is way over my headanyway, i have only ever really regretted not doing one thing in my life (yes, it's a regret or something i didn't do rather than something i did do)...but because i'm so happy with where my life has taken me now, it seems hard to still regret it because if i had done that one particular thing, it may/would have changed the entire course of my life...i am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason, so i guess i can't say i regret anythingexcept, of course, every drunken night there's something stupid done/said/drank etc. which i feel sick about the next day but those are just minor regrets in the grand scheme of things
