Hi,

I'm at university now (soon turning 20) and think I have become a lot more outgoing in the time that I've been here. However, talking to some people at uni, I sometimes wish that I was more outgoing from a younger age. When I hear people talk about house parties they went to at the age of 15/16 etc it makes me feel as though I missed out on more potential fun as a teenager.
Does anyone else ever feel this way? I know it sounds a bit silly but I tend to have a lot of regrets.

I mean yes, I'm also more outgoing than I was now that I'm at uni.

But what good does dwelling on the past do? It won't change anything. Just make the most of your time now.

True, find it hard to not look back at what I did/didn't do in the past.

I always think this too, but I'm 22 now and even at university I had no potential fun, so I'm clearly destined down the boring healthy-liver path. :dontknow:

Did you feel you were missing out at the time or only now when talking to these people? You don't know how much of what they're saying is true, and I bet some of them actually had a miserable time at these parties!

I had friends who went on holidays abroad; my family couldn't afford to, but we did great seaside holidays and even had a brilliant week in Birmingham. I didn't do much partying, I did cadets and volunteering and played sport. And guess what, I've got people who are jealous of me because I grew up in a loving family and did interesting activities with them.

Don't get hung up on superficial things!
