    Which do you regret more, the things you’ve done or the things you have not?

    Sista Carrie,

    I definitely would have to say that I have regretted some of the things that I have done in the past. Not that I have done dirt to people, but I have made some bad choices and decisions. I don't regret my future because I am making moves everyday to make it brighter.

    Peace and blessings..

    I regretted the days that I made decisions for other people.

    I regret very little, as my mistakes have played a role in the man I am today! Mistakes can be turned into positive experiences, as long as you learn from them.

    Exactly my thoughts, Brother Pan! I want to say that I regret the decisions I have made in the past, but had I not made them, I would not have the knowledge that I do have today. Every experience that you have shapes your present and future self. You're supposed to LEARN from your mistakes so that you do not mistakes the sames ones over again.

    Hmmmm....Hard to make a choice. I regret some of the things I have done, and also some of the things I have not done. And like jazzy, I'm referring to bad choices and decisions. True, they have shaped me into what I am today, but hindsight being 20/20, some of my life's experiences would have been much easier.

    I regret the many things I have not done at my age...I wish I had pushed myself into certain things back in the teenage years so my life would be better now.

    But if you DIDN'T do something you later wished you had done, is that still a mistake?
