6 Most Common Regrets People Make In Their Lives

Have you ever made a decision that you later regretted? You’re not alone. Most people are familiar with the discomfort of going down the wrong path. Some mistakes are small and not worthy of second thoughts.

Most Common Regrets People Make In Their Lives

Making Poor Judgment About People It’s natural to want to like people who like you. Sometimes, you may waste time worrying about people who don’t reciprocate their friendships or partnerships. Instead, they quickly disappear from your life, leaving you in grief.

Treating People Poorly Alternatively, some regret how they treated people in their youth, including close friends, exes, or family members that are longer here or are long on to other partners and friends. Someone tenderly wished they had videoed their Dad, who passed away several years ago, so that he could remember his voice forever.

Worrying Too Much About What Others Think Outside of your close friends, family, and significant other, don’t worry about what others think of you. Sure, it would be ideal to be admired universally, but that may be a false expectation, causing you significant anxiety and stress.

Opportunities Not Taken Due to a lack of confidence, people often miss out on opportunities at a young age that could have strengthened their careers. As your confidence builds over time,  accept greater responsibilities.

Not Following Their Passion Many people complain later in life about not following their passion or dreams and taking a safer road, only to be unhappy later. Acknowledge your intuition about how you want to spend your time. Enjoying your work is a huge step toward finding success.

Going/Not Going to College People have many regrets about their college experience or not attending college. Many find themselves in college without “having the slightest idea” about what they wanted to do with their lives, blaming societal or family pressures for pushing them towards getting a degree in a hurry.
