  • Regretting is always worse in my book, making a mistake and realizing it is a lesson.

  • Making a big Mistake. I would rather have the what ifs that have something I regret ALL the time.

  • Mistake.
    I regret all the time, its a fact of life.
    I regret losing my virginity.
    I regret lying to my parents.
    I regret never meeting my grandma before she died (I was 3).
    Life will always be full of regrets and 'if onlys'.
    It's the mistake that is big to effect your happiness and life that is more scary.

  • Living your life saying "if only"

    I have made some pretty big mistakes but I get over it and move on. Those mistakes make me who I am and I rather like who I am.
    "if only" might have changed things now and that would be very sad. :(

  • If you live your life always asking "what if" you loose sight of What COULD be. Mistakes are what we learn from in life. You cant ever change the past, accept the mistake, LEARN from it and move forward.

  • Wondering if only....

  • Personally, I beat myself up a lot more over what I should have done and didn't as opposed to the things I did do and shouldn't have.
