regret by ErinBird regret by ErinBird
"In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take ."

Feels like it's been forever since i've done a quote .
I feel like the foot prints in the snow represent people walking down the road of their decisions in life , and how there are different footprints in different directions showing how there are different choices . Anyhoo , I hope you like the quote , I think I read it in a book or something .

Tumblr: [link]

Enjoy , comment & fave ! ☮

just curious, but do people really follow this as a life lesson? I mean, I surely regret pursuing a relationship rather than studying for my final exams lol. I'm sure there are many people who regret getting STDs over one night stands, people who regret getting married young, or pursuing an impractical career path, etc :S.

Not hating, but this is just one of those quotes that just... I dunno lol. It's a quote people use to justify doing things they will likely regret in the long run. Nevertheless, nice photo :D and hope you have a good day :)

thank you (: and ah well I guess it's more like opportunities that people turned down I guess more than a choice between 2 things . For example , if someone offered you something , for example , skydiving - people make regret taking that opportunity to say yes to that opportunity . So yeah , but I totally get where you're coming from ! Have a nice day too (:

Half true. We tend to regret a lot we do and don't do.
Sometimes the "what ifs" should remain that as they can hurt us more if we do them vs just dreaming about them.

Oh god, this one hits close to home. ;_; I saw a poem once on tumblr that sums it up perfectly;

I tried to love him as a friend
I tried to love him as a lover
But try as I may, it went in vain
For his heart belonged to another

Nah, I regret all the chances I took that resulted in me either making the wrong choice entirely and wasting years of my life, or ending up looking like a complete fool. If I'd made more sensible choices I'd be better off now, or at least have fewer hurtful memories and more useful skills.

Yes , it is true that happens . But personally , i'd rather make them mistakes and learn from it rather than looking back and thinking "well , what if I did that" and such

What if the chances you take lead to you looking back and thinking "what if I hadn't done that" or "what if I'd done something else"?

I am not so good at being thanked, for I try to speak as I feel.(not good for the 5 words or less answer) I hike almost every day in the mountains , so as I had come across this work of yours, suddenly I could see that I seem to be walking in circles. So today as I go for my walk I am going to draw an arrow on my hand to remind me to turn left sometimes( OK, so funny).............So thank you Teacher, for giving me my next assignment.................xc

Nice quote, it kind of leads to the what if's of life, what if I did this, or what if I took the chance and did that, how much alot of our lives would be different today if we took those chances or opportunities when they presented themselves :confused:

Exactly! Like "why didn't I sleep with that girl / guy?"
This is why we should enjoy as much sex as possible.

Don't do anything stupid though, like robbing a store. That'll backlash.

Interesting fact: It's been proven that men rather regret missed chances, and women regret bad choices.
