    I would not have dissapointed people who loved and cared for me.

    I would have kids, a husband a family and friends.

    I would just have loved and cared more.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Please feel appreciated and loved by life itself, else you wouldn't be born, I beliefe.

    I would've not touched drugs, or even alcohol and ciggies, for that matter. Drugs. It fucks you over.

    I would have known, without the shadow of a doubt, that my life is about caring and helping others, animals and nature to prosper. I would have known and done it earlier.

    I would have saved my money instead of buying useless crap which I no longer have anyway.
     
  7. I would have been honest with my parents about my feelings, and I would never have gone to see a doctor, ever. I would do my own research and treat myself, and never, ever, listen to their poisonous advice.

    I would be careful to make the choices i wanted for myself and not let others choose for me. As i look back in my life i can see how much i did to please others or just to fit in and go with the flow. I have regrets in my life because i let others tell me what to do and i just did it. I never really knew what i wanted so i let others decide for me and now im just filled with regret and shame.

    I would try to love myself and have fun. And of course I would study the major I loved. Its a bit late :(

    I would have been more careful.
    And maybe I would have been able to save him.

    I would have run away at about 7yo and told people I was an orphan. I’m only half joking.

    I'd be lying if I said I hadn't considered this as a viable option though.

    I would not put any of my children through the education system and would home educated them all like I do with my youngest.
    I would report to the police the incident that happened to me years ago and didn't have the strength to.then.

    But there's a lot in my life I wouldn't change as they are all life experiences
     
  16. I think about this a lot. I think the biggest regret I have that I want a do-over from is dropping out of sixth form. I wanted to get 3 As (I was pretty much guaranteed them if I put the effort in, too, which is the annoying part) and take History at university. I ended up getting too ill.

    I'd like to say that my mistakes and illnesses have changed me for the better, and maybe one day I will have no regrets, but it's hard not to be mad at myself for refusing help and advice until it had such a massive impact on my life.

    I would try to do all of my school work better in all schools I've went to. I would try to treat my acne when I had the chance so then I wouldn't be like this now. I would do my hair natural style only for my entire school year in the eighth grade. I would keep talking to people throughout most of my middle and high school years. I would force myself to be confident and have somewhat high self esteem. There are more things, but I don't know what they are. They're in my brain and I can't get them out.

    This sounds weird but I would have insisted to be homeschooled. I feel strongly that my public school years were a huge part of my social anxiety developing as badly as it did, and that I would have been able to learn better had I not been worrying about some jerk taking unflattering pictures of me while I was listening to the teacher.
