Woulda, shoulda, coulda. what do you regret?

I wish I had said yes to that job at Sony Pic even though when, at the time asked, the would-be boss, yelled at me before asking if I wanted the position. Big, Big mistake because all the other bosses on that lot were 10 times worse. Had I only knew. Also, I wish I had stayed in Boston long enough to know Peter. I think about him to this day...and it's been over 20 years.

  • I wish I never let my 1st marriage drag so long when I knew it was over for many years.
    I regret not listening to my parents more.
    I should've spent more time with both my parents, they are both gone now.

  • My biggest regret has to be dropping out of school. Even though it was necessary at the time bc I was taking care of my little brother. But another would be getting married so young.

  • I don't think i would change a thing. If i did change something, then there is a fat chance i never would have met my wonderful DH.

    BUT, if i knew i would inevitably meet him anyway, then i would have went back to college when i had the chance. Going back to school right now would be a huge stress on everyone in the house.

  • Regret is NOT a word in my vocabulary. I do it or I don't, then move on & don't look back. You can't change yesterday so why even think about it?

  • when I'm mad as heck at my SIL? I regret not kissing her husband when he wanted to kiss me.

    but that's only when I'm really mad at her. I know I would have regretting it and the consequences wouldn't have been worth it.
    but sometimes it's just like *sigh*
