i had few regrets (you're lying if you said you never regret on anything) coz i always had to ask others opinion before doing anything instead of just do it. i know it's good but because certain people said it's bad, i didn't do it & now whenever i think about it, i thought "how i wish i just ignore them & do it." if i can go back to the past (which is definitely impossible), i definitely will just do what i think is the best & right for me & i think my life would be totally different. no, i'm not unhappy with my life now. i just feel that i can definitely lead a better life if i never follow those people advices... not all advices are good anyway! i learn it the hard way...
but then past is still past no matter what. we do not live in the fantasy world... there isn't a fairy godmother or trapped genie in a bottle who will grant us every wishes. nop, not gonna happen right? so if you want to do something, then do it now instead of regretting later coz you never even try to do it. do it now; today, not tomorrow or next week, month, year, etc coz if you don't start now, you never gonna do it maybe even when it was actually too late to cry about...
