I’m 18. I regret nothing. Everything happens for a purpose.
If I didn’t make the choices I had made in the past or go through certain situations, then I wouldn’t be the same person as I am now. I’m not perfect, hell no, I’m far from it, but I’m on a HighExistence conversation and not an mtv forum.
I’m 19. I”m turning 20 in a couple weeks, though, and it’s weird to think that I will not be a kid (of some sort) anymore. I know many people talk about being a kid/teenager at heart, but it’s not like actually being back in high school/middle school/college. I don’t really regret anything I’ve done, I just regret some things I was too scared to do at the time.
I’m a teenager for about 6 more days and I plan on making a lot more mistakes in my life however long it maybe. With each and every mistake I make I try not to dwell on the stupidity of my action but to learn from it.
But isn’t age all in your head?
20. I did some dumb shit as a teenager, I don’t regret any of it though. Making mistakes is the best way to learn.
One thing I’ve noticed about myself is that the older I get the younger I feel. I think a big part of it is that the more I learn the more I realize I don’t know.
I’m 19. So still a teenager for another 6 months. I am amazed at all the posts declaring regret-free life! It’s inspiring if it is true.
I certainly do regret certain things I’ve said or done, but I’m in a place where I can look back on them and realize they had a purpose. In retrospect most things make sense and I can appreciate them regardless of the pain or disaster that ensued.
I believe it is and always will be a process when it comes to regret. Everyone will have regrets. It just a matter of whether you choose to throw them away and forget or dwell on them day and night.
19, turning 20 in January. Only thing I regret was something in Grade 5 xD I’ve tried to make amends, and the person I wronged has said that I have, but it is the only thing that ever appears in my head when I think of things that I regret. One day I will conquer it!
I’m 20 and I am not going to sit here tell you guys’ I don’t regret anything cause it made me who I am. Although it’s nothing serious I regret little things like not trying harder in highschool, not giving more of my early years to helping others, not wasting energy on negatives. I don’t feel like EVERYTHING I did made me who I am, just a few very important things. Family molded, shaped by friends, opened minded from drugs and learned by love (love of everything) totally hippy thing to say but the power of love toward something is powerful and I only recently learned that
Zoe, Age is not such a big deal, young people can be smarter and more mature than older people, even wiser, but unless they sabotage their progress they will no doubt grow into a fuller and much more well rounded and stable individual as they get older. There is a difference with age and I would not go for someone under 27, It may seem prejudice to you but I don’t think so. It is like saying Danny Devito is short, it may seem offensive but it’s true and I don’t hold that against Danny.
i’m 19, but it doesn’t feel like it, feels like i’m 22. guess that’s just adding extra years in my life :)
i regret some stuff. some mistakes i’m still making, i know that. but as i go i’m learning and i’m loving the journey …
i wish i would have decided on a career when i was much younger, it seems to be like my never-ending dilemma.
other than that, everything seems to have lead to me where i am today and regardless of whether that’s a good or a bad thing, i wouldn’t want it any other way.
21 I was always mature when I was younger though. In middle school I was hanging out with the older high school kids and some thought I was their age if not older. I don’t regret much really just I wish I appreciated my childhood a little more being an adult is definitely a little more of a hassle than the care free days of being a child.
What do you think of studying? Particularly towards the end of school, I’ve still got 2 years to go, do your marks really matter all that much? I’ve never exactly been the most dedicated, getting average marks because of it. Do you wish you studied harder?
20. I have grown so much in the past two years at college bein away from home though. It’s crazy to look back and see how my entire thinking process has changed. It feels a bit strange to realize i was a completely different person from not too long ago. Love life
I’m 19, and I’ve made plenty of mistakes.
I wish that instead of working 50 hours a week during highschool, I would’ve studied more.
However, I’m content at where I am at and avoid worrying about the past.
If anything had happened differently, I wouldn’t have become a part of the most life-changing organization ever, which resulted in meeting the most amazing people and having friends all over the world.
No point in regretting anything, just make the most out of learning from your mistakes.
I’m 13… I guess that although I am technically a teenager, I still have all the teenage years to get through in which to make plenty of mistakes to later regret. Well, the last year of my life was one big mistake, but I glad it happened, because otherwise I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
