We all make decisions that we will ultimately regret. Some are secondary or even interesting, while others have a negative impact on our lives. Do you ever wish you could go back in time? Well, these people have.
Our community members were asked to share some bad decisions they regretted making, and many did. Scroll down for some “bugging” and see if you can get in touch.
procrastination. I want to stop, but maybe later?
I can’t say “no” when I should say “no”.
Been in a job for too long, I’ve been underappreciated and paid rubbish wages for no good reason other than familiarity, and the prospect of leaving it is terrifying.
Not visiting family as a teenager because I wanted to look “cold and distant”. Now that so many of my amazing, loving aunts, uncles, and grandparents are dead, I am willing to give up everything and go back to embrace them.
Don’t focus too much on school when I should have
Emphasize eating, “eat what I feel”. Wish I could better address my stress and anxiety and stop normalizing food to reduce stress.
Let yourself get used to it again and again.
Go to a huge 4 year college instead of CC.Costs are insane, teaching is objective
marry the wrong person
Not saying how I really feel because it sounds harsh. It always ended up with me hurting because I was too sensitive.
Boy, how wonderful my life would be if I could tell.
Fart after eating Mexican food.
When I bought a house, I put my husband on the deed even though the mortgage was in my name and my parents gave me a down payment. When we divorced he tried to get half, but I reminded him that I paid off his student loans with my estate and he shut up. I miss that house.
binge watch the show, once i watch all the episodes they will miss them
Don’t care about high school, I have no GPA in 11th grade. Still doing well in life, but if I could even apply anything at the time, who knows.
Used the key once on my math homework. Now every time I can’t do it easily, I get frustrated, remember how easy it is to copy the key, and then copy it.I can’t stop its madness
50 years ago, I could buy a red-seal Pu-erh tea cake in Hong Kong for about two yuan a cake. There are stacks of them. One is now worth about $300,000.
Looking for happiness, left a well-paying job to do what I wanted to do like travel, write, etc.
Now my position is not only demanding, but also relatively low-paying.
Stay with mom when parents divorce
It’s too early to start “dating”. It set a erratic rhythm for the rest of my emotional life. and lead to worse decisions.
Playing video games at school, I never got caught, but now I can’t sleep well.
Not going to college! I wish I had pursued my dream of being an avian veterinarian; now I don’t have time to do it.
Trust a friend who pushed me into a lake which resulted in surgery on my foot.
Live with my family. My parents got divorced and I lived with my mom, who was so overworked that she had to retire early due to a nervous breakdown. Now she has a poor pension and (in her opinion) has to take care of her grandma who can’t walk. Since I started working with college, I’ve become more direct and made it clear that I don’t agree with this. She was exhausted and all she did at night was complain to me about everything at Grandma’s house. I love my family and they gave my brother and I all we could with the little we’ve always had, but for a while I started noticing how toxic this family actually was. Every little thing gets ignored or starts yelling on both sides, there’s no room for healthy discussion, every time I want to make a valid argument about something it gets ignored or I’m told straight up to someone like me People (a stupid student who can’t work, I work with people, not very likely now) if I don’t like something, I should shut up and leave, and then they start discussing when we’re going to transfer ownership of Grandma’s apartment (completely different one question). I can’t, I’m exhausted and every little thing that happens with us is my fault, even though I warned them it could happen. I just hope everything reopens so I can at least escape to my work…
Resigned after 20 years due to racial discrimination 🙁
I gave my opinion on the sexuality of the character in the anime, because I thought he was bisexual (not confirmed, I even said that, but it’s a huge theory), I launched a YouTube video A complete war, with one comment saying “no character is straight”
