SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: October 30, 2014

I regret leaving school early. It was so much harder to catch up years later as an adult.
I regret being too introverted to ask that girl out which I really liked. Looking back now I had a good chance with her . I realized this later on after a chance meeting but I was too scared to have a personal conversation with her at the time incase she rejected me. I heard from someone else that she has left the state and I have no way to contact her and she's probably forgotten me. I regret that I still think of her often. I regret that I now have no one.
I regret ever starting my current job as I hate it so much and am trapped in it since I've been doing it for over 10 years now and can't get out of it.

SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: October 29, 2014

I regret falling for the same trick twice. It's because of my naivety that I fallen down to the doorstep of death before I was even 10. I wish that I had the chance to go back in time and unbefriend those two morons and traitors whom led me to experiencing a near death experiences, one with a gun to my head and the other with being nearly choked to death. It's thanks to them that my innocent was taken away and I saw the world as it really is, hell. I can't even go out to hang out with my friends in the evening because I'm paranoid beyond normality, as I think that someone will come up from behind me and kill me. I can't even trust people easily and they're the seeds that were planted into my whole being. Whenever I see a real gun I start to shake, even if the person that's holding it will never point it at me or it's just a piece of decoration. I can't let anybody touch my neck without flinching away and thinking that they'll choke me and end what my so called friend started. Whenever I go visit my family at those locations, I can't even stay still without fidgeting and looking around because I expect to be killed. I hate them with my whole being. I can't even go to my family to look for help because I know that they'll think that I dreamt of it all. I love my family very much, but I don't trust them enough with this information, especially my parents.

SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: October 28, 2014

I regret giving up on my job. I wasn't feeling fulfilled, so I stopped trying. Now, I feel like I've let myself down, and I've let down all the colleagues who depend on me as well. I wish I'd had the strength of character to persevere for its own sake -- or at the very least, I wish I'd turned in my notice earlier.

SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: October 27, 2014

I regret giving up on my passions. I regret stop taking ice skate lessons just because I felt pressured and insecure. I always loved ice skating but I wasn't the star skater, in fact I was always behind. Yet, I loved it so much. But when I failed one of my competitions, I guess it was the trigger point. I decided that I was no good and so I quit skating. And now I regret it everytime I see my friends skate, I regret not continuing and I regret it so badly. I wish I'd just go through with it and try my best. I wish I had the motivation to continue it. And now one and a half year has passed, my skills are probably crap now and I'm in my junior year, things have become quite busy for me. I lost something really dear to me. I lost my dream to insecurities.

SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: October 26, 2014

I regret meeting you. You messed with my head, allowed me to get close to you as a friend, messed around with me when you had a girlfriend and someone how got me to fall in love. You told me you and her were moving in and when I told you how that killed me you said you wouldn't censor yourself. Fuck you. Words cannot how I truly loathe you and how you act towards me. Whenever you would get flirty of when we messed around I'd always have the hope you were on shaky grounds with her and would give me a chance. Of course that never happened.

I'm in a new relationship that I'm excited for and has the potential to be great- but I'm afraid I still have something for you and I'm afraid I always will. Even if I love someone else and find a man I could spend my life with, I'm afraid I'll always regret not having my chance with you. Maybe worst of all I hate that I still consider you a friend. And that's why I regret meeting you.

SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: October 24, 2014

I have many regrets. I wish I was done with school, that I had a degree and was gainfully employed. My reality doesn't match what I want it to be. I'm very unemployed, poor, and I don't have a vehicle. I'm unable to go back to school, I don't qualify for financial aid and I have no money to my name. At 24 I've achieved nothing, I'm not accomplished. I'm not successful, not smart. I'm nothing.

I regret letting you go when I never should have. You were the best girl I have ever been with. You were willing to see what potential we have, you wanted us to be together, you wanted us to get married. Out of fear I prevented us from having a chance. Now that I want you completely you want nothing from me. I'd give anything just to have another chance with you. All I want is you. I want to be yours completely. You're my biggest regret.

SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: October 22, 2014

I chose a "safer" and cheaper university program to go into instead of the one I really really loved so much more, just because I didn't think I was mature enough and I was a coward I was scared I wouldn't be able to handle the materials and the work load but all that's just bullshit. I was scared. That was it. Now that I'm in the program I don't like as much, I feel miserable. I don't know if i should transfer, or make it through the 5 years and then go chase my dreams afterwards. I'm lost.

SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: October 21, 2014

I regret that I didn't give the space you asked me. Those two weeks apart maybe would have changed everything. I was so scared of losing you that I couldn't be distant. I think about it everyday. I regret all the things I told you after you broke up with me, I was so angry that you gave me hope that week and asked me to think about what we could do to improve our relationship just to meet you and get a no as an answer. I regret that I can't function without you, this pain is so strong and is swallowing me. I check on your twitter cause I pretend that your random tweets are like the messages we used to exchange every day cause it calms me. I regret that I stopped going to therapy just cause you left me. And I regret feeling so guilty all the time for losing you, I keep thinking and looking for things that I may have done. I'm so tired. I wish I could be braver. Female/30
