I don’t know if it’s my biggest regret, but one thing I regret is not accepting a full ride to the Air Force Academy when I was a senior in high school.
The story behind that is short.
I had taken the ASVAB test and apparently scored fairly high on it because about a month later, I got a letter from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO offering me a 4-year full ride.
Unfortunately, I wear glasses and I’m a woman, so they wouldn’t let me learn to fly so I turned down the scholarship.
Now, all these years later, I feel foolish because I could have been set for life … more or less.
I guess you’ll always have that “what if…” in mind. For me, it’s a lesson to try as many things as possible so I won’t have many “what if” moments…
That time I dropped out of college didn’t work out too well for me.
How different do you think your life would have been now if you haven’t dropped out of college?
Good question. I figure I’d be in the same place I am now, I just would’ve got there about 15 years quicker.
Not giving my grandfather a glass of vine on his death bad.:(
At that point, did you know it was his death bed?
I was still hoping he would get better, cancer is a mother lover
This is why you didn’t gave him that glass of wine, right? You hoped he will get better and that wine was harmful…
Yep, I just mixt a bit of wine with water, I was naive back then. It was actually his last wish towards me, and I didn’t respect it. I honestly didn’t since then have a bigger regret then not fulfilling a dying mans last wish. 🙁
Not setting goals sooner in life! I’ve only really truly done it in the last few years. I’m 33. :/
You’re still very young! If you really focus in something, you can achieve more in one year than you’ve done in the last 5 years. The past cannot be changed, but the future can through the present!
Saying “I love you” to someone who didn’t deserve it ….
How much time ago was that?
About 4 years ago. It’s my only regret in life because it’s the one silly thing I can never change
Not making better use, of the gift of time.
I try to remember this every day… to bad it doesn’t have the desired results every day.
Making a decision that was totally against my conscience. It was a bad, bad move. The consequences were ripples that went on for years and years.
That sounds tough. Those consequences still come?
Drugs and alcohol.
How’s your relationship with drugs and alcohol now?
A lot better than it’s been in almost 4 years.
No regrets. Everything happened for a reason. 😊
That’s true, and the reason can be a bad decision 🙂
For me any bad situation is connected to the way that is leading to my dreams. We attracting everything to ourselves with our own feelings. ☺️
A part of me wants to say getting pregnant at 17, but honestly my daughter is the soul reason for my determination and work ethic so im going to say.. dropping out of college. not thinking i could finish trying to work full time and being a new mother. There are so many resources, if i had known about them then i would have finished by now.. still i love my life dont, get that twisted lol
Well, now you’re more experienced and you can see those things, but back then you made the best decisions you could do at that point 🙂
Regret loving someone from the bottom of my heart.
I’m not sure if that’s in our control… was it mutual?
Soul love broken in pieces due to betrayal.
not defending myself during elementary school.
In your opinion, what would be different in your life right now if you defended yourself during elementary school?
I would be more confident
Not taking the scholarship and not saying yes.
How come you said no to that?
Fear of failing on the part of the scholarship. It meant leaving my comfort zone. As far as not saying yes, that was something completely different. And I didn’t realize it would be the last chance.
No regets, I am who I am today because of all I’ve endured thus far.
That’s awesome! 😀 You wouldn’t be you without your past.
If you guys could check out my blog post, it would be much appreciated. Also follow me and I’ll follow you back! Thanks ☺
Thank you for sharing! 🙂
Time (and love) wasted on wrong, toxic, fake people. For the rest, all that happened has been for a reason and brought me where I am now 🙂
I guess all those wrong, toxic, fake people thought you some lessons you couldn’t learn otherwise 🙂
Not taking the opportunities that were given to me.
Can you give some examples?
Wasting time doing nursing and pathology at TAFE instead of doing the Library and Info services diploma I’m doing now.
How come you followed that path?
Not believing in myself, but instead listening to others telling me what I should do and who I am, These people did not have my best interests at heart and like me were negative people.
I believe that those people cannot have your best interest since they view your world through their own core beliefs, which are formed based on their own past experiences. Do you!
Not listening to my heart when it was screaming. And I refuse to listen to it over and over again…
Where did that take you?
Using my wife to prop up my insecurities and fears.
That’s tough for her and for you. How is your relationship now?
Thanks for asking. We are in a rebuilding phase. Only time will tell.
It will and as long as you try to improve the relationship with yourself, as you mentioned before, I’m sure the things will get better.
