Do you ever feel like you took the wrong path in life. Maybe zigged when you should have zagged? Is there anything you would do over again if you could?

  • I def think I could have make wiser decisions when I was younger however, I do not regret anything b/c if something different had happened I may not have my DD today. I couldnt imagine life w/o her & couldnt have asked for a better child. I think most ppl wounder though about the "what ifs" in life I used to a lot but found that to drive my crazy so I simply dont think of them anymore & its helped out a lot w/ being a more upbeat person.

  • If I hadn't gone to grad school I could have gotten married two years sooner and started my family sooner. On the other hand, it was good for me to experience another area of the country, and I had two more years to get some maturity under my belt.

    I also sometimes thing that rather than the job that I have, which would never support me but that I enjoy, I should have gotten more training and had a better job and better pay and benefits.

  • I have no regrets on the choices I made. I do however wonder what would be if certain events outside my control would have gone differently.

  • The only thing I wish I had done differently is to not have screwed up my credit. As much as I hate my ex husband, had I not married him, I would not have met his friend and his wife that eventually showed me the club where I eventually met my husband. SOOO, I feel that had I not been married to that abusive sack of $hit, I wouldn't have met my husband. So, I don't regret my first marriage. I just regret not being more responsible with money and credit.

  • We all do. I think I wouldve been less naive as in my 20's when I was dating I was too shallow. I wasted almost 3 yrs in an abusive relationship. But i've been told that you cant get here unless youv'e been there. So who knows.
