    I suppose, it's never too late. Not even at 19, to get braces and a beautiful smile right.... RIGHT?!?!?!!



    I just wanted to say... I suppose I should regret the last couple of years of my life, cause I had no true friends, was a shut in, wasted it all on gaming, did nothing significant, yadda yadda yadda

    But now that I've set new goals, and found new passions, it doesn't matter to me at all that my life before now was remarkably... unremarkable. I don't even think about it at all now, because I'm much more excited about what the future brings, I don't even have time to dwell on the past.

    Go on, start living your life now, and you won't even care about what happened in the past!
    right.never.

    yeh this gal turned it round.but the important thing to remember is that she was once a nobody.as was I.but you just gotta keep faith in yourself when the tough times come and keep improving yourself.everyone has the potential to be something special in life.everyone.it just takes determination and faith to get there.

    Dude, no homo. First you say you are my dad, then you tell me to suck my dad's D***? Errm, Nein, Danke!

    I regret nothing, because the events leading up to now made me the person I am.
    Oh dear

    I saw this in today's Telegraph. Quote from the chap who runs a 1.2bn investment fund:

    I actually wanted to be an engineer.... But after university struggled to get a job and instead ended up taking a job in fund management.

    Being dumbstruck by authority or aggressors. It's like that fight or flight response, I stop being able to string a sentence together and everything stops feeling real, I don't feel like I am really there and when I do, I wish I didn't. I can't really think, all I want to do is not be there, and if I even attempt to think it's like suddenly I need lots of air and get out of breath. I get pins and needles in my hands, feet and face and I've had everything go sparkly in my vision on a number of occasions. I just... stop responding. Like a crashed computer program. People often say I'm expressionless and look like I don't care, but that is definitely not what's happening under the hood. It has been a huge source of problems in my life, my one biggest regret.

    I wish I could get over it somehow.

    Not looking after my teeth in my early twenties. About a year of not brushing them much while living on Haribo and Coke left me 13 teeth down and looking methadon-y rapidstyle. Now there are bridges at the front, so it mostly goes unnoticed but chewing is a *******, and those bridges are gradually pulling the teeth they're attached to out, and I doubt I'll ever be to afford implants.

    Not going to University. I feel, at 19, I am far too young to be in a dull 9-5 job Monday-Friday. It's draining to think that's your future for the next 50 years.

    University however, would have allowed me to make friends, stay up late watching films/playing xbox, commit lots of time to education, go out partying a lot and just feel like a lot of the commitment and tediousness with life is still to come, rather than in my face.

    If I could go back 3 years, I would have forced myself to do A-Levels and go to University.

    At 18, my only regrets so far are social regrets.

    You know, regret being so shy when i was younger... asking certain girls out....



    On the academic side of things I'm doing well.

    Not getting my A-Level Maths grades remarked last year. I know that I was graded unfairly on some of those papers.

    Can't complain too much though. I still got AA.

    that tends to derive from extreme need from validation from external forces, lack of independence and possible childhood abuse/neglect
