Probably spending so much time being depressed would be my biggest regret and not living life to the full during my early 20’s.

I’ve also spent more time playing videogames when depressed so am not sure whether being a gamer has been a help or hindrance. Playing shenmue again reminds me of the first time I played it on the dreamcast - lonely days and things didn’t improve for many years after that.

Don't worry about things that you can't change, things that you did before etc.

What about things you haven't done yet that you can still do before it's too late?

Another one for me is to learn French to a degree where I can confidently travel around francophone countries and converse with the locals. I can happily lower the bar by not targeting (and basically admitting that I'll never attain) fluency.

In my younger days I spent far too much time chasing people who didnt want to be chased so my regret is not wising up earlier and moving on. Nothing I can do to change it now but whats done is done. I dont think theres anything I would regret right now, except maybe not losing the weight, something Im doing right now so in a year or two I should have asbolutely zero regrets so thats something to look forward to! :D

I don't have any ragrets. I'm just going to keep working towards my targets as and when I make them.

I let my MKI Escort go to rust when I went to uni. They are worth a fortune now.

At uni, there was a hot girl who really liked me and kept asking me out, and I simply have no idea why I kept being coy. I did later get in touch with her to tell her I had been a dick, though.

Other than that, no massive regrets. All my little mistakes have led to where I am now - education, career and relationship choices/mistakes - and my son literally wouldn't exist if any of that changed.
