Regrets in life essay

We all do things in life that we regret. We also do things in life that make us proud of the people that we are. Still, there are things in life that we hope to someday be able to do. All of these things make up who we are and how we"ve come to be ourselves. Occasionally we"d like to change the past because of regrets, though this would completely change who we are.

The past few years have been very trying for me. A lot of events had taken place, and sent me down a road I should never have gone down. The events themselves need not be spoken of; the affects that occurred due to them are the focal point. I had become severely depressed. I could have cared less about what anyone thought of me or what would happen to me. I became careless in my everyday decisions that should have come easy to me. My friendships suffered, my relationships suffered, as well as my career as a student. Because of these things, my parents became more and more persistent with me, which only led me to run away from home. Shortly after, I was found and forced to return home, regardless of my reasons for doing so.

Now, I can say that I have turned my life around. Some things from the past few years still haunt me to this day, but I"m able to cope with them thanks to the help I received from people who do care about me. I have been going to school on as much of a regular basis as possible considering my low immune system, I"m doing my school work, I"ve become social again, and rekindled the bonds between my friends and myself. .

Someone hearing this story could consider me a bad person for doing what I had done, which I have no disagreement with, but they must also see that those events have made me who I am today. Granted, I could have become who I am through other means, but I don"t believe that they could have made me as wise as I am. My reputation was scarred severely by my actions, and many people hate me, but regardless of all of that, I"m glad I came through and became who I am.
