What are you going to regret some day?

Odds are its missing an opportunity.

Missing out on telling someone how you feel. Not taking that chance. Just because you thought it might end badly. You just let it pass you by because you were too afraid to not give it a real try.

Thats what you are going to regret some day.

I have done some things I wish I hadn't. Things that I think I would take back if I had the chance, but I have come to realize that if I hadn't at one point in my life been 17 and stupid I wouldn't know all that I know today.

I am not saying that I know everything because I still on occasion do really stupid things, and I sit there and think to myself "Why did I do that?" But at least I learn something from it. Or I try to at least find something positive to take from it, and move on.

I tried. I tried to hold on to some thing that I wanted, I got crushed. I wish things were different, that it hadn't blown up in my face. It still hurts, but I tried. Thats good enough for me.

Will that be good enough for you?

It was a poor attempt at humour.

I regret that I've never had great ambition, willpower or drive. I regret that I've been misled by false ideas and beliefs in the past, which no doubt will occur in the future. I regret that relationships have not lasted, but I'd regret a bad one which kept going even more. I regret that in the past my social life hasn't been what I'd like, but its better now. I regret that so far my goals in life have been so unclear. I regret times when I've wronged people and will do better. I regret shirking responsibility. I regret not standing up for my beliefs in public more-not forcing them on people, but at the same time being open and firm on them if the subject arises. I resolve to improve. My regrets do not outweigh what I feel good about, so I'm content.

I only have one haunting regret. Sure, there's lots I wish I had done differently, but... like everyone has said, you can never know where one missed opportunity would've ultimately led. It could've been to "greener pastures", or to somewhere you never actually wanted to be. The thing I regret has nothing to do with wishing things had turned out differently, just that I had handled it differently. I wish I had been less religious and more compassionate. It's too late now and I'll never have the chance to say "I'm sorry."

The only regret I have is not having more regrets. Life would seem a waste without them.
