    Interesting question and I am sure responses will vary.  I think I probably have more regrets for things I haven’t done.  I am a very calculated person who does not like to take risks but if you don’t take risks you rob yourself of experiences, change and growth.

    I don’t tend to harp on regret as I don’t feel its beneficial or healthy.  I am really glad this wasn’t another “I regret my wedding and want a re-do” kind of thread.  If regret serves any purpose it is for us to reflect upon and learn from lessons so things can be done differently going forward.

    MiniMeow :  I don’t feel like I regret anything. I honestly haven’t made any extremely bad choices that I wish I hadn’t.  I was always called a “goody two shoes” because I have always thought carefully about if you do A then B will happen. I do however wish I had gone away to college back when I was still home and all my friends were away but I still went to college so it didn’t make a difference. Now here I am with a good job, benefits, a pension. I have everything I want at this moment and will soon have the other things I have hoped for.

    When it comes to things I haven’t done, I usually only have to wonder if it would have been better after all…but for things I have done, I know for certain that it was regrettable. So I’d have to say I regret more things that I’ve done. The regret of not doing something usually doesn’t stick with me as long, and usually isn’t as damaging either.

    Hands down things I didn’t do. There are some things I wish I would have done just to know what it would have been like. And then there are some things I wish I would have done because I did the opposite and it didn’t work out.

    I have a very impulsive nature so I regret the things I HAVE done. I’m learning to forgive myself and to remind myself of the lessons I’ve learned from my past instead of looking back with embarrassment.

    I’m learning to go easier on myself 🙂

    I don’t think I have ever once had a thought of regret about something I didn’t do. I guess I feel like you can’t regret an absence, or nonexistence of something, you know? I don’t know how it would have turned out, so maybe it was for the best not to have done it – how would I know!
