    I spent it playing games most of the time which probably wasn't great but I had fun, and was going to struggle socially anyway so at least it passed and I enjoyed it.

    Why do you feel like you have wasted yours?

    I sometimes feel like that but I think everyone does every once in a while. way I see it as long as you keep pushing forward towards the future it doesnt really matter. If you feel like you wasted your past itll motivate you to try and attain a more fufilling life in the future

    how about instead of having self-pity about it, turn of tsr and do activities/meet people to do things that bring you great joy, and finally make the memories that you're desperate for

    Oh yh i do.
    I spent most of my summers learning to program and completing paid work, pretty sure i haven't seen light in 2 months straight. as well as not paying attention in English and having to repeat it 3 years (passed on the 3rd) which is pretty embarrassing and depressing when you think about it. but hey now as a 19 year old i have money in savings and enough for **** i wanna do were as my friends are well broke

    19, regret not making the most of my teens. Dont have any fond memories of it. Barely ever put my foot outside the house. Didnt make the best of friends. Regret going to a college instead of grammar sixth form. Regret not taking part in sports earlier. Regret not taking a part time job earlier.

    Wanna be 14 again😔

    Same. My parents were very overprotective so I couldn't go out with friends, join clubs or do things that normal teenagers do. As a result, I felt it was quite hard to make good friends and I hated going to school. I was quite socially awkward. It was only until I went to university that I had more freedom to try new things, and now in my twenties, living away from parents, I feel life is better.

    tbh honest my parents were strict as well and didnt really let me have a social life but thats not to say I couldve gone around that problem by joining clubs, gym, part time job etc. but I was comfortable being at home which I regret dearly. constantly thinking about it.
