I Regret Nothing

    I spent my 20's thinking about my childhood.

    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...

    “Nothing lasts forever,

    so live it up, drink it down, laugh it off, avoid the drama, take chances and never have regrets because at one point everything you did was exactly what you wanted.”

    Regret, Not In My Vocabulary

    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...

    Regretless

    Despite all of the stupid sh*t I have done in my life, I've learned not to have regrets. Everything that I am now is because of every experience that I have gone through. I have learned from all my mistakes, and I am who I am because everything that I have seen and heard and...

    Compare our lives to the life of our planet.  100 years to 14 billion.  Oddly enough, I find comfort in nihilism haha.  We have such an incredibly short time on this planet to experience what we can.  Am I going waste this time regretting mistakes?  Hell...

    Every hard decision, every loss, every painful experience, they all shaped who you are, and if you like who you are, then why regret anything? You are the sum of your experiences, and if you remove a single experience painful enough for you to want it gone, there is no telling...

    "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...

    The thing about regret is,

    regret it a useless emotion. What we all need to realize is that we live in the moment. In that said moment, we made a decision. At that time it was the best decision we could have made. It was "I" who weighed my options, & chose accordingly. Maybe I chose instant gratification...

    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...

    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.

    So I finally snapped at a teacher

    and in 2 different languages I cussed her out. I don't feel bad at all, cause she's a Cyka (*****). She won't give detentions cause she doesn't like to deal with us for 2 or more hours because she's the detention teacher.

    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.

    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.

    Every choice I made I believe was made with

    best of intentions. As I think back I know I made mistakes, but I can't regret any of it because I simply didn't know any better. If I regret anything it's that I was too hard on myself for too long. While that made me try harder to be better, it also held me back.
