    Letting other people dictate what I did with my life, in terms of my degree / living arrangements / finances / friendships / relationships etc., etc. :sigh: I'm much happier now that I'm following the direction I wanted to go in, in the first place.

    I believed that the relationship I was in at 16-18 was the most important thing, and even let it come first over my education. It was for the better in the end (my education), but an incredibly stupid decision, it won't be happening again and I wouldn't encourage anyone to let anything be a priority over education.

    Often I regret taking other people's advice, because sometimes they can be the wrong thing for me, so I wish I'd just let myself do things more without other people's approval, as I'd probably be more happy that way. I think now I'd rather make mistakes by following my heart and doing what I really wanted to do, than make mistakes following what other people tell me to do.

    Never fight a bully at work until you have looked at the bigger picture.

    Do you have a chance to win?
    Are HR bullies themselves?
    Will there be any repercussions?

    Unless you can be sure of beating the bully, then don't bother fighting. Just walk away.

    -Tell your loved ones that you love them, and don't let the sun go down on your arguments. You never know if you're going to see them again. Life's too short.

    -If you want to get a degree, it's preferable to do so before you have children. It just makes life that bit less complicated if you do things in the "right" order.

    -Having said that, this one is going to totally contradict the previous statement, because there's no perfect time for anything really. So make sure you don't put things off for too long otherwise you might never do them at all.

    - believing that others will always be there for you - they're human, they won't

    - putting up with abuse because you believed that you deserved it, when you didn't

    - eating a whole pack of Oreos in one go....woah you're going to feel sick

    It is possible to down a liter of vodka and survive, however it isn't worth the drunken injuries to test the theory. Take it from me, don't ever try it, I have to live with this mistake for the rest of my life.

    Getting kicked out of school! Although I recovered and have done well for myself, many don't and I would advise people to do well in school and not cause too much trouble

    Some of the people above have hit the nail on the head....coasting through your teenage years will be one of the biggest regrets of your life.

    To all these teenagers reading this, work hard now because, for most of us, how well you do now in these years which will largely dictate how the rest of your life plays out.

    Yes, there are people out there who have turned their lives around but these people are the exception. Don't be one of those people who dossed about inside and outside of school as kids and are now living with regret because they've not achieved anything in life that they wanted to. I'm not talking solely about education either, education isn't the only way to success - wherever it is you want to go in life, now is the time to start working for it and you'll have the rest of your lives to reap the rewards.

    If you think this is too much pressure or too much stress, wait until you reach adulthood and you're living a life you never wanted, you'll wish you could go back.
