I'm really sorry if my original post caused some of you to recall or dwell on the regrets of the past. As AMARANTHAQ pointed out, that can be depressing. That wasn't my intention, so I'm sorry. I should have made my question clearer.
I meant the question as a means to examine our lives now, to see if there are any changes that can be made to avoid any regrets.
For example, a year ago my two biggest regrets would have been:
1) That I didn't take better care of myself. Therefore, I began to eat healthier and exercise more. Today, I am thinner and possibly fitter than I have ever been.
2) That I did not give as much time and effort as I should have to some of my close friendships and relationships. Therefore, over the past year, my husband and I have gotten together much more frequently with family and friends.
I made and am still trying to make changes so that I don't have regrets.
The regrets of the past can't be changed, so I don't know how useful or healthy it is to ponder them. However, if there is something you can change in your life now to avoid something you might regret, what would it be?
P.S. I find all of you who wouldn't change a thing to be very fortunate.
