    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...
