Are there many teenagers on this site?

3 years, 4 months ago

I’m 17, and just wanted to know how many other teenagers we have on here. Also, if you’re not, what’s you opinion on them? Anything you regret doing while you were still one?

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.

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

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.

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 agree, but if I were asked do you regret anything? I would answer “yes but not anymore”

I’m 17 and in my senior year in high school, and while I’d love to say I have no regrets I think at some level each one of us has had a regret and that’s somethig I’m okay with. The important thing to me is to be able to honestly say that after all of the mistakes I’ve made in life I’ve learned from them and become a better person as a result. And personally, I’m a romantic, and so the teenage years to me are magic, surreal almost, and it’s
Scary feeling this while still in its midst because I see it flying past without any means of stopping it. But hey, that’s life. Some of its best things are out of our control.
