~picked the wrong college
~picked the wrong major
~quit driving for no good reason many years ago and have never done it since
~stayed in a job I hated with a terrible boss for far longer than I should have due to anxiety. Now at a different job and in the same stalemate.
~my absolute biggest regret...not moving away and being on my own. I was naive as a teen
and young adult and never considered that option when I should have. Years later, I am still stuck in this miserable place I hate with zero independence and little hope for any change.

I think I wish I would have done the military at 18, but other than that not really anything more than hindsight which isn't really fair.

1.) Freezing out all the women crazy enough to want to be in my life or care about somebody like me. They didn't deserve my emotional sadism.
2.) Not preparing for a career while still in school
3.) The accident
4.) The whole becoming homeless incident
5.) Having my identity stolen

Those really are my only regrets, #1 is probably the biggest. Getting hacked is an honorable mention....really good topic.

Having SA feels like being a scratched up LP that keeps getting stuck at exactly 10 seconds into Track 02.

I don't want to think too much about it, but I think my bad decisions have shaped me and allowed me to grow in ways I may not have otherwise.

1. Leaving school early

2. Not interacting properly with people my age in my late teens, early 20's, formative years, avoiding old friends, potential girlfriends.

3. Not being nicer to my father when he was ill.

4. Not getting proper mental health support from family or professionals from a young age.

5. Still being alive.

And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I dont have regrets, but i feel bad for things that arent not nice looking and leave you kinda ugly looking.

I just want things to be normal

I have surely missed out alot due to SA just like others here but I have learnt to accept. So don't like to keep too many things to heart and feel bad about them. Although one thing that bothers me is if I had opened up to my childhood crush, things could have been different.

In the year 2000, I slept with a woman a few times and the sex was amazing, she was in love with me and i left her cause she was acting crazy, little did i know that was the last human contact i would have for a looong time.

Not writing although i was the best writer in every school and college I attended, not pursuing it when everyone told me to.

Smoking tons of weed and alcohol from age 17-20 which probably gave me somewhat permanent anxiety.

Not hitting on a few SMOKING hot girls who talked to me after Yankees games i went to last year or 2. (too shy)

Not meeting the love of my life's kids, which she said was the main reason she broke it off with me (too scared)

Not standing up to bullies in junior high school/high school.

Credit cards and torched credit...but that can be fixed at some point. Honestly, I've probably been more messed up by crap that was not under my control. I'm also looking forward to my 30s and can't wait to end my 20s though (2 more years to go). So, past regrets don't mean much to me.

Plan for the worst, hope for the best.
