regrets of life

We all have regrets in life, and these women were generous enough to share their stories about what their biggest regrets were. As you read them, pay attention, so you don’t make the same mistakes as them, so you don’t have to face the same regrets at the end of your life.

1. Not Speaking Up

“I regret not speaking up about the fact that an uncle was sexually abusing me. I found out much later that he was also doing similar things with several of my cousins and my younger sister. I wish I had said something about it. Even if it hadn’t saved me from abuse, maybe it would have saved my cousins and my sister from going through the same thing I did.” – Elissa

2. Living Her Own Life

“My biggest regret was doing what my parents wanted me to do rather than living my own life. I don’t hate my life, but I wish it could be different.” – Suzanne

3. Avoiding the Inevitable

“A few years ago, my grandma was dying of breast cancer. I got the call that the family had gathered and I should go to join them. I was at work and a mix of not wanting to find someone to cover the rest of my shift and being terrified of all the emotions that would come if I went, I didn’t go. Now, it’s one of my biggest regrets that I didn’t go to be with my grandma and family at the end of her life.” – Rachelle

4. Not Reaching Her Full Potential

“I regret not going to college. I had the chance, but I just didn’t take it, and now I feel like I’ll never be able to reach my full potential.” – Kylie

5. Not Chasing Her Passion

“My biggest regret is taking so long to realize that my true passion in life is teaching. I would have never gone to law school if I had realized that all I wanted to do was teach. Thankfully, I was able to go back to school, and now I’m happy doing what I love.” – Constance

8. Making a BIG Mistake at the Office Christmas Party
