Zeus here for yet another depressing post! But maybe this one will be a bit more... therapeutic? I don’t know. Maybe I’m just going to be Crosstalk’s Depression Machine. I’ll get that on a business card.
Anyway, let’s discuss some of the things in our lives that we regret. It doesn’t have to be super deep but I think that, if we discuss them among people we don’t really know, we can maybe see our regrets may not be as bad as we once thought. Maybe we’re blowing them out of proportion because we’ve lost perspective.
For myself, I know mine is sort of silly. I regret not picking a career at 14. It seems like today’s society deems that you need to figure out your life during puberty if you’re going to get anywhere. I constantly think that if I had decided exactly what I wanted at 14 I could have spent all of high school working toward a college that would get me that and then I’d come out of college ready for it. Yet instead I spent too much time being a nerdy teenager and discovering that I actually did know how to write. You know, pointless stuff.
So what do you regret? Do you think it’s silly or is it something you really do feel has affected you negatively? Or was it positive in some weird twist of fate?
Or maybe I need some Teamocil... Hm.
