Yes and no. My life was perfect (how I deem perfect anyways, not PERFECT perfect) until I hit college age. There are some days I think about what I should have done differently. Like right now, I think about what would happen if I would do what some people are telling me to do, but it's my life, I'll live it the way I want to and if this is going to happen, so be it. I'll get through it. What doesn't kill me, only makes me stronger.

Do I regret how my life has turned out: no. Do I regret any decisions I have made: no. Do I regret how these decisions have made other people feel: at times, but I cannot control how people react to them. Do I regret how I have spent my money or who I have given it to: no. Do I regret my career path: some days I have moments of "oh why, why did you go in this direction rather than that direction?" but they are moments, not regrets. The sort of moments you get when you realise how fierce the competition is for the paid jobs and how willingly retired/people with a fair amount of leisure time will do your job for free. It's a motivator to continue with my professional development more than anything. Do I regret anything else?: not really. Life happens, i'm dealing with enough of the fall out from various actions as it is without factoring in regret.
No. Anything I've done or things that have happened to me in my life have all helped me become the woman I am now. And I really don't think that woman is half-bad. Even if given the chance to re-do some things to make my current life "better", I wouldn't undo or re-do anything. I wouldn't be any happier than I am now. If I constantly thought and said, "If only I had more of ___ or ____, I would be happy," I would be miserable no matter what I had in my life. I have so many blessings, I can do nothing else but give that to others and I think that is the entire point of living - to bring honor and glory to God through our lives.
Yes regret a ton of things. Largely being so influenced by my family at a young age and not knowing how to make my own decisions. I had learned behaviors of always making my father happy and not to worry about myself. Up until about the age of 25 I was a obsessive people pleaser. This led to a lot of personality problems with depression and alcohol and so on. I didnt go for a degree I wanted, I didnt go to school where I wanted. I luckily made some good friends in the process.(the one plus) Finally at 26 I joined the military and took charge of my life. Have grown up tons but really wish I could go back to when I was much younger because I am far behind in life for my age. I mean I have heard of people starting careers and everything much later but I feel like I should be were someone who is about 24 is instead of 30. At least I am half way though a masters even though not so far along in career.
