    As It Says In My Back...

    No regrets especially in love, I believed in it that I had it tattood right on the back (of my spine). Someone said that I was going through life a little fast. I got married at 21, divorced at 31 (mom at 30), embraced being a lesbian at 33, got a little off the path at 36. I...

    What's the Point In Regret?

    Regret only holds you back and makes you feel sorry for yourself. Life is full of choices. Sometimes you may have sorrow that certain things never came to be, but if something is important enough to you, you will make it work. Mistakes happen, but you learn from them. Regret...

    Not Regretting A Damn Thing..

    I DON'T THINK A PERSON SHOULD REGRET WHAT THEY DID OR DIDN'T DO. YOU CAN'T GO BACK AND CHANGE ANYTHING SO WHY REGRET. ALTHOUGH IF YOU WERE TRAMATIZED AS A CHILD, THEN I CAN SEE WHY YOU WOULD REGRET THAT HAPPENING TO YOU.

    Why Bother?

    It happened. You can't change it now. Your life, their life, everyone's lives move on. Regrets keep you down and keep you from moving on with your life. If you don't just get up and DO something then where are you? Still stuck wondering what could have been.

    Everything that has happened in my life happened

    for a reason. Everything I've done has led up to my life right now. If I had done even one thing differently, my whole life could be different.

    it only holds us back from progressing in my life, life is too short to regret things, no matter how bad it was- it made you the person you are today

    I Regret Not Having Learned...

    I regret not having learned my mother tongue or pursued learning a musical instrument. I could start doing that now, it's not too late I guess. I try not to regret anything, but it has gotten me into trouble. Luckily, I come out alive at the end of these episodes.

    And the parental choices made to and for me. Then in my first couple of years in my 30's, I regretted not fully living in my 20's. I think I was 32 when it occurred to me that I'm living in a cycle. And I put a stop to it. Realizing the only thing I controlled was the now. And I...

    "Regret Nothing. At One Time, It Was Exactly What You Wanted."

    I read that online once a few years ago, and realized that it made a lot of sense to me. In order to regret nothing, you have to do nothing worth regretting. And I make it a point to live by that. It's not easy. For instance, one decision I made causes me alot of trouble. I...

    My thoughts on this matter are simple and clear. To regret my life, my decisions, my past and anything surrounding it, is to deny me in my essence. Every moment of my life has made the person I am today. I choose to accept myself as I am, therefore regrets do...
