Default Things you regret that keep you up at night.

My son passed away a little over 3 years ago. We argued 3 days before he passed. I regret that we never resolved our differences before he passed! Keeps me up at night! Sometimes being a hard headed dad sucks!

I wish I had tried to make things a little better between my dad and I before he passed.

I always wish I would have called Dad a little more often.

I aways regret not joining the Military. I always feel I should have done my part and served my time. Not to mention the wasted abilities I have.

I wouldn’t say anything I regret keeps me up at night, but I often think about not having started a business when I was younger and could afford not to make a certain amount of money.

Dont worry my man. I blasted mom for the choices she made. In 14 days i lost my mom 8 years ago. I said things i can never take back. I will live the rest of my life with the guilt.

I have made a point to never talk bad to anyone that i cant say sorry!

Hang in there buddy.

Getting drunk playing beer pong, and getting in a fight. Then trying to fight my son for trying to stop it, totally my worst regret. Not using my artistic skills to make a living, and now trying to figure out how I can, because my body is aging faster then I think it should. Not taking my dad fishing “ one more time” while he was in a wheel chair, or even before that. Actually just spending more time with him while I had the chance. Having my dog put down, before we were 100% sure she had the cancer the vet told us she did. ( should have got a second opinion) Man I miss her every single day ! And that was three years ago now. For sure these are my biggest regrets.

Headed out on a grand adventure on my motorcycle when I was young. Lived on the road for two weeks straight, with more than half the nights spent with just my head propped up on the front tire to sleep looking up at the stars. At the end of it on the way back, we were coming through Missouri and came to a fork in the highway. Left to head back to Houston, responsibility, career, blah blah blah. Right to keep going and give myself another few days to really think about what I wanted in life. The right hand forked pulled at me hard, but when the fork approached I merged left. I hated myself for the decision I made the entire way home. It is my one true regret that I didnít take the time when I had the time, and I feel like I betrayed myself out on the road that day. The day I retire, Iím going back out there and Iím not coming back until I give myself the time I shoulda taken the first chance I had.

I am the only child of my mother and father together, they each had kids with other spouses before me. My mom passed away in 2010, for some reason me and my half-brother on her side got into a huge argument over nothing after the funeral, didn't talk for years afterward. It bothered me a lot.
Then my dad passed away in 2017, the same half-brother was at the funeral, he saw me and came over and we hugged and actually talked awhile, as if nothing had ever happened. He said he was glad to see me and I him. What a huge relief that was, guess we both made our peace with it. I still regret immensely that we didn't talk sooner because we were both hurting after mom's death, I know it was killing him the whole time and same for me.
We're several 100 miles apart now, don't talk much but that day was a big burden off me.

Telling my dad it was ok to go, that he did his job raising me. Truth is I wasn’t ready for him to go. I was 17 when he passed. I’m 33 now and to this day I wish I could call him and ask how to do stuff.

A few that I'll mention.

Being helpless as a little girl took her last breaths in my arms. I wish I could have done more. Fallujah, Iraq 14 Feb 2005. Indiscriminate rocket landed in the courtyard of her home as we drove past.

How I treated my wife after two deployments (nothing physical). I was a mean person. It changed her. We're more than a decade from that time but, I still remember.

Asking God to take my Mom (step-mom). She was dying. She was in no pain when He took her (23 March 2012). She had Multiple Myeloma. I wish I had just had one more day with her.

My dad passed in 2014. The morning that he died I was sitting in the waiting room at the ER when I heard them call a code blue over the loudspeaker. I knew it was him. The doc came out after a couple minutes. They were doing CPR and working furiously on him. The doc asked me what I wanted to do, and I made a decision based on the fact that my dad was almost 80 and had told me many times he never wanted to be on life support, etc....every day at least once I think about it and wonder if I did right by honoring what he'd told me.

Trusting my brother when he said he wouldn't ride the big wheel across the street.

I was 10' away when the Schmidt's TV Repair van....

I was 11 and will never forget the officer's comment when I said "Well, you see what happened was...."

"No son, I didn't see what happened" probably wasn't the most appropriate response

What I regret right now is feeling like I could have done better for my mom. About a month ago we had to put her in the nursing home with dementia. I feel like I failed her by not being able to take care of her and being able to keep her living in her home for the rest of her life. Also the feeling of being powerless to help stop her progression with this horrible disease.

This is a little different than the theme of this thread, but in high school, I broke up with a girl because I thought I was too cool for her. One of my friends didn't feel the same and long story short (and unbeknownst to me), she was a total and complete nymphomaniac.

Hahahaha

In the spirit of making the thread a little more light hearted Iíll add to this one. Freshman year of college we had massive parties at my house, being that I was one of the very few freshman with a house. Buddy from 45 minutes came down and brought his GF and her smoking hot red headed cousin. I normally donít think a red head is very hot, but everyone at the party would agreee she was extremely gorgeous. Me being the fellow I was partied it down that night, and had her in the bag. My buddy, his GF, and her cousin were about to head back to his GFs house since she only lived a couple miles away. Her cousin looked me square in the eyes and asked if I was going to go stay with her that night. Dead serious without missing a beat I told her I was going to sleep. I walked over to the couch and laid down right there in the middle of the party and called it a night. I never have lived that one down from my friends

My grandfather passed away 9 years ago. I had been extremely close to him growing up, and was the only grand child to work for him at the farm constantly. We had a huge falling out when I was 19. Luckily I had a month off work before he passed. I spent everyday of that month with him at his bedside and made peace after not even acknowledging his existence for close to the previous 3 years. I can’t imagine how I’d feel today had I not spent that time with him.
