    Sometimes It Really Is To Late...

    The worst regret of all is one you can't fix because the person died. Replaying it over and over hoping the pain will lessen. Hoping for forgiveness and wishing for the moment again. Grief, regret and a hurt so bad life will never be the same. Always remember it really may be...

    I have many regrets, I think

    if we were all honest we would admit that we all do. Many things I regret saying, not saying, doing, or not doing. I think my biggest regret is taking the people that I love/loved forgranted. I think about grandparents, my paternal grandfather I loved very deeply, he died...

    Actually I was interested in financial

    My heart is at ease knowing

    that what was meant for me will never miss me and that what misses me was never meant for me. ~Umar ibn al-Khattab ( 2nd Caliph of Islam - 634 CE )

    Why Regret

     I used to regret most of the horrible or embrassing things that I have done, but now I realized that everything happens for the best. If none of those regretful events happened, will you be the same person you are today?

    I just know that we need to pay more money to

    the owner when we rent a room or house, even though the owner him/herself does not fully paid the house yet. And when I commented about this, friends and people said that of course owners will charge more than the bank loan, if not there's no profit. I just know that it doesn't...

    Regrets

    I know everyone has done things or haven't done things that they regret later. Have any of you given up a material possession that you later wish you hadn't? One such thing I gave up earlier this year was a car; a 2005 Mazda 6! You see, I had two cars. I have a 1997 Toyota...

    It's hard to put my regret in words.

    My Regrets?...

    Well... I have many, like most of you. But one is dwelling on my mind more than most and I wish to share it even though I see how silly it is. I regret not seeing Jay-Z and Linkin Park play live together. And that's a regret I will take to my grave. :| It's silly but it's...

    My life every year, every month,

    every day is never void of regrets. Yes, I cannot remember when the last time I didn't regret anything even for only ONE single day. And they're all coming from my own fault, immaturity, stupidity, and laziness.

    My Regrets

    I regret my choices when it came to me sinning against my religion, or when it came to my love life and how I pushed away someone I loved for 3 years. I regret how easily I forgave my father at times when he would treat me and my mom like s**t on his shoe. I regret trying so hard...
