    My regrets:

    Signing up to TSR - yes it should count, 'coz its ruining my life...wah.....:bawling:

    Keep an exploitative friendship longer than I should've (shudda dumped the f*cker)

    Not doing STEM earlier - when everyone, even astrologer/psychic, said I should.

    Learning a musical instrument when young - now I can't play sh*t. So jealous when my mates invited me to their recital where they played cello, violin and piano.

    1) you inferred I was calling your friend a con. I posed the question if he is. There is a different.

    2) you assume i'm a progressive because...?
    1st q ---The word 'con' came up from you. Why doesn't another description come up first? Therefore, in your mind you've already formed the association: astrologer/ psychic = con.

    2nd q ----because this kind of attitude comes more from the Progressive / Liberal side than he Right, but I'm open to being wrong.

    Does your friend charge people for any of his services?

    Nothing, I wanted to do a lot, but never had the money to do so. I would've done a hell of a lot more if my parent could've afforded it.

      The year 2016 was so replete with bad decisions that it's basically one big regret. Wish I could start over.

      I don't think that's relevant.

      If someone is not falsely advertising their services or setting out to trick people into handing over their life savings / inheritance, I don't see a problem.


      A builder charges people, and its only wrong if the customer is being ripped off / builder hasn't done the work paid for.

      In some cultures, astrologers are paid to provide services at weddings and funerals, and also celebrations (like when someone gets a new job, have a baby etc.).
      Tell me why some people feel they have the right to control how other people choose to live their lives?

      My second relationship.

      I lost a lot of myself to that person, and now more than 3 years on I still don't feel the same. It damaged me in a lot of ways.

      For giving up music and singing. I got accepted into a prestigious music course after secondary school and was only one of 4 singers that made the group and I gave it up due to stupid bullies in my group bringing me down. I know now I should have just sucked it up and realised they were shallow and maybe even a tad bitter but I didn't see that at the time and instead, bought into what they said about me and believed it. I've barely sang since.
