    I find it really hard to think of anything I regret. Butterfly effect and all that. The hard times in my life shaped the great life I have now.

    The only one thing I can think of is when I was going through a really hard time, I said some horribly mean things to my sister in law, who was suffering depression. My whole life was falling apart, she had everything I wanted in life. Even though I've suffered depression myself and know having a great life doesn't help if it's a chemical imbalance in your brain, at that time I couldn't quite cope with her continuing to tell me how sad she was all the time. Looking back, we were both depressed, but I felt I had a 'reason' to be and she didn't. I regret the things I said to her. They were unfair and pretty awful. We're good friends now and would never speak about that incident again, but I wish it had never happened.

    More things than I care to think about. I have so many regrets but I try and forget them because thinking about them makes me sad and I have no complaints about my life (aside from the regrets).

    I could be here all day writing what I wish I could change.
    Get a degree straight out of high school
    Not had kids so young
    Bought a house much much sooner
    Never ever started smoking

    Those are the top ones. Sorry couldn't choose just one.

    I feel even the bad things got me here, so it's hard to say if I'd change them, I mostly regret not going to uni, but then I wouldn't have met DH.....so I don't really know if I regret it.

    I still question if dropping out of school was a mistake.. But in a long, round about way, it was what brought me to my husband.

    Buying the car. It sits in our driveway dead and collecting dust. Due to my own anxiety I am struggling with trying again.

    nothing really, I'm prob quite lucky to be able to say that.

    maybe a different uni course? maybe not have bothered finishing my arts degree?

    maybe should've had a bub with dh sooner?

    but these aren't regrets, they're just what ifs. prob wouldn't have changed much in the overall big picture of my life.

    I wouldn't have started a Phd. I missed out on 2 years of decent earning potential and career progression because I was pressured to take it on. I wish I was stronger and said no as I never really wanted to do it, but I was convinced by others it was the best thing for me at the time. It was a huge waste of time and caused me untold amounts of stress and hardship.

    But - I don't at all regret leaving (as so many said I would), I learnt a lot about myself and I also made a really great friend doing it. So there's that at least 😊.

    I could have typed this myself.
