Here are 10 significant things you are likely to regret in 10 years time.

In a few years from now, there are things that you would wish that you did or did not do. Regret can creep up on us when we least expect it.

  1. Not being expressive enough about how you feel: Not being expressive enough about how you feel can be something that you may regret in the long run. Tell your family member or that long time friend how much you miss them. Text them and remind them that you care because life is short and tomorrow is not promised to anyone. 
  2. Not traveling more: This is among the top regrets that people usually have during their lifetime. So when you have the chance, especially when you are still young, travel more, see new places, gain new experiences because these are the memories that you hold on to even at your old age. Save up money and travel whenever you have the opportunity to do so.
  3. Mourning pains for too long: No matter how painful a situation was, you should make out time to grief it of course for as long as you wish to but remember that you have to let go of what is now in the past and make an effort to adapt and adjust and have a more fulfilling life for yourself. It is just one life, remember.
  4. Not taking chances: One of the things that people regret is that there were a lot of chances and opportunities that they missed or decided not to take because they were too scared to take the risk and make a move that would have steered them into a different direction and changed their life for the better. Don’t be that person, even if you have missed some chances, decide that you are not going to keep missing out on opportunities again.
  5. Letting true love/friendships go: Now, I am not talking about fake love and fake friends; you do know those people that are real and will stand by you no matter what and so you should not mess up that privilege by not acting right and allowing them to slowly leave as long as they are acting right by you. Hold those true friendships dear to you and reciprocate the love that you receive.
  6. Not being yourself: When people get older, they tend to regret that they were not themselves but rather pretended to be what the society or their families and friends wanted them to be. You are unique and this is something to be embraced and cherished. You have only one life and so you should authentically be yourself and not be afraid to let your light shine. 
  7. Not letting your children be themselves: Most people will regret forcing their children to choose careers that they wanted rather than the ones that their children wanted because in the long run, when they realize how much of life they have missed and allowed their talent to go to waste, they are going to turn around and blame their parents for it and these parents will regret not letting their children chase their dreams.
  8. Not spending enough time with people you love: Life is short and this is not just a cliche saying. Life is indeed short and what matters most are those precious, memorable moments. Spend time with your loved ones and those that you hold dear to you, make time no matter how busy you are, to spend time with those that you love.
  9. Working too hard: Of course, we should work hard for the life that we desire to have but we should also know that work will never take the place of the moments that are supposed to be enjoyed. Take out time to rest, to spend time with those that matter to you and sometimes, just take a break and notice those things that you have not noticed before, appreciate things and people that deserve it.  
  10. Not living your dreams: This is one of the greatest regrets that people have further down the line when they have become old, weak, too sick or too tired to pursue their dreams. You do not have to wait to feel that the time is right before you go after your dreams. You should chase your dreams like you are on fire every single day.
