Not leaving my abusive x Husband sooner. I stayed for 16 years. To many years of unhappiness and youth taken away, That leave scares! But then I might not have met my now Hubby, because of timing..
Everything is for a reason!!

Letting my mother talk me out of going to medical school. I SOOOOO wanted to be a doctor, and would be by now if she wouldn't have intervened. Evil or Very Mad I never listened to her before, why I listened to her then, I'll never know. I could be making big bucks right now!!!

Closing off communication with my parents over the past few years. I truly feel better now that they dragged me down to Florida for the summer. I was not doing good. I was being stupid.

My biggest regret is not realizing that how my parents treated me was wrong for over twenty years. You know how victims blame themselves, especially kids?

My biggest regret was probably when I was raped at 17 by a 33 year old cab driver and didn't tell anyone about it. (because I was a virgin) The following week he bought some teens alcohol they had alcohol poisening and one died. Thats probably the worst thing I regret.

All those awesome jokes I didn't think of until after it was too late to use them.

I have many small regrets, but I guess the biggest regret is that my wife never knew my mother prior to her battle with systemic lupus. My Mom was so full of life until the disease robbed her of her looks and quality of life. She had no real chance against one of the most insideous diseases on the planet.

Ditto !!!
I'm happily married now ... but I wasted so much time with a bloke that n=mentally abused me and made me feel inadequate, then I fell deep into depression cos if it .. I can see it now, but not at the time... he made it all out to be my fault ... I wish I stood up to him, and hit back .. I would now... I'm confident enough ..

Cutting my hair real short when I was 12, and everyone at school called me nanna after that.
Calling my mam a stupid cow, this was just a few weeks ago whilst having a massive row. omg, I feel sick just thinking about that. I got so angry and just screamed at her, which I'd never done to anyone before.

It was really daft, over something about the washing, and how I'd ruined her clothes or something. I dunno, seems I'm always doing stuff wrong. Think we were both just in bad moods lol

Well many years ago my dh and I were trying to get in. He is a former marine, though, and they don't allow former military in the peace corps. Now I have two children, so if I wanted to go now I would have to leave my family behind for 2 years. Not likely. So yeah, it's too late. Crying or Very sad

I think the sacrifice was worth it, though.
