being very evil to my family when i was younger
forcing on 14-14 when couldve saved and played for tie
once i got stuck in the school's bathroom for 15ish minutes because the door key was broken and then the entire school was bumping on my stall
Buying a PC. It lead to me hiding from my negative emotions and experience s by numbing my mind by playing meaningless video games. With time I gave up every hobby I ever had and got worse and worse mentally and physically without even noticing.
majoring in chemistry probably
I don't have a huge regret but I feel like I could have been much more enthusiastic about studying something like tourism or politics rather than food science. But I can't complain, I'm studying at one of the best universities in Turkey and food science is still fun and useful during daily life.
started gambling 4-5 years ago
Maybe edicational choice...
Job pays well but is very stressful. Sometimes I wish I would have just learned something more "simple". I have to drive around all the time, keep so many things in my head. I know that challenge at work is not a bad hing per se, butI would much rather just shut off thoughts about work once I get home. Never really a downtime to chill, work phone always activ, even on holidays.
But whatever, I guess it could be a lot worse..
not realizing how useless school is earlier . wasted 4 years of my life learning stuff i dont like and will never use just because thats what society wants you to do . all these years just so you can earn like 1-2k / month in a shit country like Romania . Now its even worse because i feel so out of place here because everyone around me is still going for that bad lifestyle and im the weird one lol
Spent much money on the shitiest game Fortnite
penis size reduction
now my peepee is only 23 cm and I dont feel like a man anymore :(
being lazy fuck afetr leaving home at the age of 18 after school
Starting playing cs (not a joke).
giving up drawing i really had a passion for it and loved drawing but i just stopped idk why and now i just cant get into it without thinking how good i could be rn if i never stopped and a little bonus is that i stopped talking to some people i met online
Probably not working hard enough at school and just cruising doing the bare minimum even though I had talent and could have done great things. There’s still opportunities so I’m not done yet though
pursuing a certain type of job because you think that's what you should do in society's definition of success, that's what your friends are doing or that's what university has instilled in you to do
people are obsessed with money and status, but it doesn't bring happiness or fulfillness in life
why get a job for 75k in a shitty office contributing nothing useful to your community, becoming depressed, having money but no motivation to do anything with it, not happy when doing the things you should want to be doing., your focus is always about 'getting that next promotion' to earn that extra 5k and move into a different office room and reply to different emails or work on a different excel sheet... when you get to 70 years old you'll look back on how you didn't live your life by the standards you wanted, your grandparents, parents and siblings all slowly passed away, you didn't have the time for them, or when you did you weren't your usual self because you're just depressed about your shit inner city office job
sure, maybe you can go on that extra cruise in retirement with your wife, but when you meet the guy who was a head zookeeper, earning a comfortable 45k and loving his job with animals, or the doctor who saved many lives, or the schoolteacher who created many opportunities for people in life while having 3+ months holiday for his family a year, or the guy who opened his own restaraunt and met many people, you'll think 'fuck' was my life worth it?
tl;dr - do the job you trained for if that's what you enjoy, or simply go for the job which will give you happiness, don't settle for something just because you think it looks good on paper to other people
Not putting enough effort in school.
Probably the fact that till 18 I was mainly focused and intrested in playing games. And not trying to earn some money instead
I don’t have any regrets as in do something different if I was to start over. Sure I could wish for things to be different but but I don’t see how there would be any other outcome if I was to start over to be able to have things to regret
Stopped going to the gym when i was 15
Refusing to get help for some time with mental issues.
All good now but would’ve been better if I was less stubborn
arguing a lot with my parents
stopped playing football when I was younger
Many things but the biggest one is my betting addiction.. Because of that i missed on so much things, opportunities, learning, school, friends etc.. It basicly made me a loser but atleast i admit it and i am on a way of fixing myself.
Not jumping into the water when i started burning in minecraft hunger games. some admin said that the winner of the game would get VIP status for free. I was in the top5...
took the student loan and had 5 great years.
they could have still been grade with a job besides.
when I got stuck in washing machine and I yelled step bro for help
not really big of a regret, but
when I quit professional hockey, resigned contract and left the team due to increased amount of injuries I had. Now I think that I could have taken a risk and to should have stay. I wasn't all star player like Ovi, but my mates among whom I was considered as a better player made it to KHL, not key players but whatever. Gladly, financially, physically and mentally I found myself even in a lot better position, but sometimes I just miss those days, when I used to play hockey, it feels like I could have done more :)
i have done almost nothing to change the course of my life and my choices always was the easiest ones at the moment
also my drug/alcohol abuse in my early teen years messed up with me too xd
I don't have much regrets but procrastination is an ongoing issue outside work.
No regrets to be honest I am having my decent life without risks I study I have no gf and I havent been left in a very hard situation to give such decision.
didnt realise she was into me
Sold Cobblestone case for 1400 rub (20 dollars) back in August 2016 just to buy deus ex Mankind divided
nothing it all happened for a reason
OMFGOD, that is realy bad mans, i was in love like a idiot, and today is too much trouble to get off of that shit, i work and study fucking hard, have time for nothing and de demand is high, not for sex, for everything else.
Nothing I would like to share honestly... you can consider it a biggest regret and a saving grace at the same time which I couldn't control whatsoever....
"Biggest regret in your life?"
nt, hltv users dont have life
losing my passion about my job, I used to be able to program 12 h a day easily and smiling, now I can't even focus for 5 hours
being nice to people who dont deserve it
Dating(fortunately only once)
Not taking studies seriously. From the bightest student in middle school, to mediocre in high-school and now failing 4/6 classes in first semester and not knowing a thing for my exams of second semester next week. Wasting a lot of parents money in college, everyone still seeing me as "the bright kid", feeling inferior to peer in college due to lack of hardwork and poor results, feeling mad because girlfriend is doing her assgnments and haven't talked in a week and here I am wasting my time instead of studying for my examinations next week and complaining to girlfriend for not providing enough time when she clearly has her things to do and thinks I am studying my ass of for examination. Also, majoring in Computer Engineering, I know it's tough. :(
IDK how I'll even pass any subjects and what I'll make of me. I feel so overwhelmed that I don't even start studying as I don't know a thing since my college started and I have exams in 5 days to be exact. Also, I had 3.9/4.0 GPA in middle school and only 2.92/4.0 in highschool barely passing. And failing 4/6 classes in college first semester. Also, I can't get over the fact that kid with such a potential, forward in every ECA is just a trash right now and only I know my current condition. My parents, relatives and my friends outside college still think I am still talented and good student and a capable person whereas I am only aware of what a big mess I am in. :(
Being a huge fan of dark humor, i once told a really bad joke around a frined of mine that was having a fucking awful day. she had a rough fight with her parents about her studies in my city (they accused her of a fuckton of shit she wasnt to blame for, specially problems caused by covid at our university)
Well, after that she was in bad shape and me and another friend of mine took hers for dinner so we wouldnt let her be alone like that
Add to that, a stressful week, with some bad suprises, and a backstory of depressions, suicidal tendencies and shit like that) and my joke was the trigger, the last straw nad she tried to commit suicide later that night
EDIT: It really was a awful joke, and immediately after it left my mouth i felt really shitty and a really bad friend, but the damage had been done
Needlessly to say, she's not really my friend anymore, and probably for the best for her
still feel like a piece if shit
probably i regret all that time spent on gaming, I had fun but still feels like I could have done something much more productive. Or atleast just be outside and experience life better
Wasted 4 hours watching Snydercut
wasting 3 years of my life for a girl who did not deserve my love
playing team based games.i should of just played 1vs1 type games instead.
Once in the second grade, my friend shit in the school toilet and I opened the door and my friends and I started laughing. That day I got my pants dirty with shit. I don't know how to write this in English, but I hope you understand me. I m very regretting that my pants were dirty
This is my dads not mine. When bit coin came out my dad was interested and bought some for £20. He sold it for £50. That bitcoin would now be worth around 400k
Treating girls like they are pieces of meat..
Ah wait, nope not that.
Perhaps dropping out of University so close to finishing my degree but that said I wouldn't change my current situation for that so...
Probably taking too many party drugs that will come back to hurt me one day.
a lot of people regret not studying lol. you should be glad 60%-80% of the classes taught almost in all of the universities are useless, time-wasting shit. for example, I am studying computer engineering and they teach us microprocessor programming, like only maybe 0.2 % of all students would work on microprocessors'. others are the same.
you shouldn't be sad for not studying. I wish schools didn't exist at all. they used to matter because they were not many people for many jobs and employers were caring about, even little, so a degree was important.
now every mf has 1
watching +18 things, f*cks my mentality, f*cked my mentality
playing team based games..i should of just played 1vs1 or solo only multiplayer games
not getting a good math grade when going into high school
idk i'm doing pretty fine
that i dident bought bitcoin early. :(
being the biggest asshole to people just because of personal insecurities and first heartbreak LMAO
Started to gamble (mainly match betting) as a 13/14 year old, I'm still 14 and I'm afraid I'll end up as a gambling addict
IDK honestly, obviously there are many moments in my life where in retrospective i could have done better...
-From the age of 11-16 i pretty much lived in front of my PC
-I´ve threaten some people in a bad way
-Should have been more honest in the past
-I regret losing interest in playing guitar...
- I was quiet lazy
- Should have been less agreeable
Sometimes i just have giant cringe kicks looking back at my former self. How ever i feel like this is normal. We all should develop and at least i´m able to recognize my flaws and better myself.
In a few years i will probably look at my current self the same way i view my younger self today.
taking prolonged breaks from the hobby i love(d), if i had continued i could've been one of the best in my country
Going to jail for 8 years
Not geting the driver license as 18 yo
excessively masturbating for the past 10 years
Not telling about my feels for a girl in school. Now 15 years or so later I still keep thinking about her from time to time and have these flashbacks appear in my head what I should have done differently then.
Start smoke cigarettes 7 years ago...
probably developing extreme anxiety and FOMO for all decisions and thus being paralyzed to anything anymore. I was very good at giving a presentation in front of the class (and still am) but now I just worry SOOOOO much it hurts.
Messing up the relationship with the girl i loved. And still love, I guess.
Sadly i was really mentally unstable back then which slowly but surely made sure of the relationship's destruction. Needless to say, time was really shit for about 1,5 years after it as well.
Hey, at least I am actually doing really well now :) Still miss her tho
Spending thousands on skins
Not knowing as a teenager what I know now.
Plus, also not buying those 50 bitcoin when I first learned about crypto currency, but seriously that is just money so way down on the list.
not hanging out with friends after school
The first bet i've made in my life.
Not learning more about money in my 20s, and not focusing on my career back then.
Being unsocial as fuck and lazy for last 2 years of school, missed so much fun and making good friends... now im stuck in quarantine with my parents and nobody to talk to and wasting my best years alone... shits depressing.
I cheated in cs like for few wingman games on my main account, and few weeks later I got VACed. I didn't really care at that moment but rn I regret it so much and I never used and will never use cheats again in any game
Also at the <13 age I just couldn't say word "NO" ever. I lost so many time with it..
And I have a
I cheated not because I wanted to rank up or something, I just loved this feeling that you know something that your enemy does not, I was just having fun. But valve showed UNO reverse card to me
idk I've never done something i would deeply regret but I wish i knew my grandmother would pass away so i could spend my whole free time with her so i kinda regret it
Not fighting procrastination before
I feel like I was an ungrateful bitch when I was smaller, I was always crying and complaining about stuff when I was younger. I think I realized this after my father died, I was 12 at the time so you could say I was just a dumb child, but I still think about my behavior sometimes, I feel that he deserved better. He was an amazing person and I wish I spent more time with him...
I have almost nothing to say, maybe not talk to a grill that interested me
nothing. no regrets
nah but really... IDK probably being a pussy and not talking to girls
That I started betting 4 years ago and lost tons of money, im glad i managed to quit
letting people use me for their benefits all the time
never actually spending time with family, just cause I had to "study"/"had work"
focusing on my hobby rather than studying at university. after i graduated i cant even find a job and corona stuff. i tried to do freelance job based on my hobby skills but the income isn't enough and my family wants me to work at office. also keeping my motivation is very hard because the pressure and depression. that's why i almost gave up find a job and instead focus on my hobby stuff and go to retail job.
Wasting time 6 years ago on tf2
I can’t really come up with something, generally i am pretty optimistic and pretty hqppy with my choices. My biggest regret is probably not asking out girls that i liked or answering the hints that girls gave me.
I could also say spending 5,000 hours on Arma 3 in 3 years could be a regret but i enjoyed every last second of it so i will never regret it.
The fact that I got drunk before a really important working trip to a foreign country, fought with a guy, broke my femoral neck, and now I have an endoprosthesis
Making my happiness dependent on a girl who couldn't decide whether she loved me or wanted me out of her life.
There's a lot of regrets in everyone's life I guess. For me it would be gaming and sex addition. Maybe it doesn't sound so troublesome, but it is. Gaming addiction led me to procrastinating important stuff a lot. Once in a couple of months I'm taking free days in work just to play some games to reset myself and I'm not telling her, cuz I know how mad she would be. I'm not productive with my time because of gaming. Can't take my job seriously and I'm doing necessary mininum to keep being hired (Im react developer) and I can see that people with smaller experience are better than I am. But even that I'm aware of that, it's hard to change your habits. Sadly all my close friends are gamers themselves, so it doesn't help with quiting. I know they have the samw peoblems as I do. I'm 27 right now, so i feel like I should act more like an adult.
Sex addiction doesn't sound scary, but trust me it has a big influence on a long term relationship. (I'm already 8 years together with my fiance). Sadly, emotions > logic.
Once I got high on hashish (in the morning) and met the school director whose lesson I had
wasting money and time on college when i could just download books from the internet for free
Not being able to win Boston Major at 15-11. Hello, I am Guardian!
everytime I win huge amount in bets, I lose them straight ahead.
Also could bang a lot o chicks when I was younger but didn't want to because I had a huge crush on a girl for years. I was so blind and retarded. :(
Letting my pro cs dream die. I was insanely skilled with the awp and i was failing uni becouse i was praccing like 10-15h a day and the end od the year was comming so i stopped playing and started studying but my brain was fucked from so much cs my concentration was out and i failed that year anyway. I came back to cs and my skill went downhill i was too rusty and i kinda lost the confidence to play like i did. So i stopped playing cs and went back to uni and to working out.
Once upon a time i was playing cs and called my teammate a n****. Then i found out that he was a Somali guy living in Sweden. I am still ashamed of what i did. If you are reading this rn, please forgive me(
not messaging my 95 mathes on tinder
Never making an effort to make friends, now I have no one and don't know how to talk to people.
Didn't make an effort in the best relationship i had. I miss her until now
drop out college. not serious enough to finish it.
sold my crypto too early.
Not grinding sports hard enough
not making a move back then, didn't realize she was into me
and now i think about it a lot and i think that she really was, we were soulmates and all of a sudden all went to shit lololol
sharing nudes publicly (not my own)
i stoped learning chinese:(
Falling in love too easily
If you can change something about your regret then do it. If you cant then stop worrying about it, past does not matter.
Being me and not being me
biggest regret was not investing in bitcoin
i dont have any. thats what happens when u do what you want
Got addicted to the white powder. Clean for a year, but lots of fucked up shit happened in that time.
Not answering that one phone call...
wish things could've gone differently
if u read this i hope ur good :D
not wasting every second on my life like it was the last one... looking back at things and seeing what i was able to do...
Doing drugs. Cant forget that feeling. Im a addict and considering going into rehab. I relapse everytime
not petting every dog I've ever seen
missing 2 awp shoots on mirage when we were 15/14 wining i was in 1vs1 I was t site and the bomb was planted and it was only 7 sec to defuse nad i missed 2 shoots when he didn´t move .... terible :D
Missed a chance with the girl of my dreams.
Not pushing though highschool instead of going into mental institution because i got bullied to the point i had done multiple suicide attempts.
Got no diploma now and can barely get a job.
I missed chances with a lot of cute girls during my teenage years, which now seems so obvious, but I was retard at the time. Now Im out of school and out of college and the few girls I interact with at work are either dating, married or ugly af.
swimming so damn fast that one time when i was very young
Becoming fat in 6th grade. I lost weight in my 8th year of school but it has totally destroyed my confidence even until now.
Never recording my best 1v2 retake. 1 in a million highlight. I doubt even something remotely close to that round ever happened in csgo.
definitely making college education a part of my life. I still keep this nonsense in the first order of my life, in case maybe it will work for me in the future. I'm aware it's not too late to do anything but I think I'm wasting time for new generation jobs (about streaming, recording or drop-shipping) that I decide to start after graduation. I wish I did the groundwork for this in middle school or high school :(
-I should be appreciated for being able to pour my heart here xd
Not improving myself that much both psychal and mental when i had chance. I am not old i am 20 but i don't have enough motivation, enough happiness to even move right now.
Waste 4 years of my time just gaming, now I realized how much bad was it to my professional career.
I have 2:
The first one was not coming out to my parents at 12. I'm not sure how it would have gone at the time, they probably would have dismissed it out right, but it also could have saved me years of gendered frustration
Second was quitting soccer(football) when I was younger. I wasn't ever going to go pro or anything, but I loved the game, and I probably wouldn't have so many communication/self image issues if i had kept with it
forgiving a girl cheating on me (she did it one more time and i was really broken)
never do this, u'll regret it ur whole life
Wasting too much time for nothing special things
Not asking out my crush in high school. Found out later that she liked me as well :(
spending too much time in hltv and csgo instead of finishing my degree
Not spending time with my dad or even being on regular terms with him. Sort of alienated him.
And now it's too late. Will never forgive myself for it.
Watching and getting addicted to porn, getting out is the biggest freedom you can experience (this is from my religious Christian standpoint)
-Wasted too much time on university and got addicted to league of legends (I was legit addicted)
-Dating a japanese for a few years was my biggest mistake ever (not a weeb btw).
- Not visiting my grandparents more when I had them is definetely up in the list.
Not being able to repay everything my mother did for me. She died 12 years ago. Cherish your mothers, please.
i have some regrets but nothing that made my life insufferable.
the biggest one would probably be not pursuing my math skills. i was shitting on the competition in the middle school but i quit because it was taking time and i wanted to do other things like gaming, also i did not take it really seriously. i would have put math olympics as my number one priority if i had the chance to go back at time.
Honestly I got quite a few. Some of the biggest being quitting the job I had at the casino, I was making so much fuckin money there I have no idea why I let the stress get to me. Life would've been so much easier had I stuck with it, I'd not be a broke fuckin bitch half the time.
And honestly? A big one is not realizing about 6 years earlier that the girl I considered my close friend was actually my fucking soulmate. I wasted a lot of time and stress with other girls and she went through a couple terrible relationships too. Turns out the whole time we had a thing for each other and neither of us said anything. I wish we could've saved all the shit that we went through. Like my one girlfriend cheating on me or another turning out to be psychotic and pulling a knife on me. Nothing like the little Korean cutie that's always stuck by my side, even when she was getting beaten by her loser ex boyfriend.
Fuck man, there's a lot more. I have a lot of regrets
this thread made me realize i don't actually have regrets that big lol, maybe its because i dont have expectations.
Stepdad died unexpectedly while we were on bad terms, last conversation ever was an argument filled with abuse. Never got to thank him for being the only Male role model i've ever had
Not pulling out.
Literally ruined my life for a 10 second pleasure
Not taking my first 3 years of university seriously (aka not even going). Now I have to graduate late (like way late), and I gained interest in my field so I want to go for a masters aboard (cause our equipment and facilities here is super outdated, plus the industry here is looking bleak) but there's almost no way I'm getting a scholarship with my current GPA.
probably saying shit to my, now dead, depressed uncle
long story short, when i was younger, my uncle left my house and left me with my brother and my alcoholic mother, that also had depression and basically never left her room (now also sadly dead)
and years ago, weeks before he died, i questioned him about that. never EVER question bad decisions from depressed people
weeks after that he committed suicide, till this day i wonder if it was my fault
Betting on Navi yesterday and losing money kek
Not being more curious about bitcoin the first 3 times I heard about it
being the most SOB in the whole world to my first gf, she totally did not deserve that and even though she said she forgave me, i want her not to, i don't deserve this from her
trusting on "friends" only to find out that they talked some messed up sh*t about me behind my back who only talked to me because I helped them in their studies
Choosing tf2 instead of CS:GO 9 years ago. Didnt expected it will be huge business so right now I could play pro
became really close to my girl best friend to the point we were essentially dating, going to her house everyday after school, we'd wait for each other after class, go on lunch/dinner dates, spend the whole night together and tons of people at school had the impression that we were actually dating
a lot of things got messed up, there was miscommunication, me and her got in a massive fight and ended up not being friends for the first time in years for a few months straight before making the path to being somewhat close friends again. Worst regret of my entire life, I am still in love with her to this day and we've never been as close since and she made me the happiest in the world since my previous gf had cheated on me and I finally felt comfortable enough to say I loved her so things were really amazing. It's really sad just thinking about it and how I can never have it back and we'll never be able to reach it again but yeah.
Betting 18k USD of CS:GO skins.
I did not follow up my football talent. I was very good footballer, but then i switched on boxing,judo. I still do judo and excersise, but the football was my real talent.
Not finding any hobbies or interests. Everything feels so meaningless. I have all the support possible from my family. Its all my fault.
putting my katowice 2014 dignitas holo on stat trak ak blue laminate back then, during the major, now it is worth 5000€+. mens(((
not selling my csgo inv for bitcoin in 2015
-Not making more close friends while younger. I have many good friends, but no best friend. Used to have 2 really close friends but we stopped talking to each other a few years back. I feel like I can really rely only on myself.
-Crashing a car while drunk.
-Smoking. I was really talented basketball player and I'm still quite good, I play for our towns A mens team, but I feel like if I didn't start smoking and practiced more I could have been somewhere else.
-Betting large amounts of money.
-Stealing money from my family.
Accidentally dropping my ice cream when I was 6.
Failing my third year at high school, was kinda disappointed in myself for letting my parents down.
Not having started boxing earlier and learning about how fun this sport is.
Shz : trying to knife simple in a 1vs2 with a 14:13 score line.
Not hanging out with my friends more to focus on "studying" "staying around better ppl" "playing games" and generally just staying home. All them good memories i couldve had i missed out on. Im not referring to partying and drugs but just simply hangout more with classmates out of school. The worst thing they ever did was smoke cigars which is smth everyone here does anyways.
I could have attended a great school if only I worked a little - I had good grades without doing anything until the end of high-school, if I tried harder I would have had excellent results and entered any school.
didn't make decision for my own good and let my father decide what he wants me to be. now i'm miserable and clueless as fck at age 28. no money, living in apartment solo and left my family. depressed, no contact at all. I just hoped when I was around 25 and have big salary, I leave my father but I stay naive and believes that all his plans is good for me. but no. it only makes worse.
Being born, if I somehow made that decision before I was born, I regret that
Refused my crush when she confessed to me
stop cs coach in 2011 because of my ex-girlfriend lol
Not working out earlier and thus Im an extremely weak and scrawny kid that needs to start doing so and abandoning friendships overtime.
Losing touch with close friends I grew up with. One of them passed away last week, and I haven't talked to him in a few years. In high school we hung out almost everyday, I went to college, joined the army, started a family and recently moved home. I kept telling myself I would reach out to him and a few others to have a few drinks to catch up. I just kept making excuses with my "busy" life and now I'm too late.
Should have spent more time with my Mom when she was terminally ill and dying in the hospital.
Still being together with my wife. Should have divorced years ago
wasting my young days playing cs 1.6 and css
Material wealth and the relationships it came with.
refusing to get help for my mental health, lost 1.5 years of school, all my friends graduate this year and i dont, feeling like i lost a big part of my youth
