    I never quite believed people who said they had no regrets in life - I think everyone has something they wish they did differently.

    By far the biggest one for me was about four years ago and if I recall it was the day of that year's World Cup opener. I began feeling ill and my granddad offered to bring me some soup over. I generally like to be left alone when I'm sick so I told him not to fret about it... that was the last time we ever spoke, a few days days later he had a heart attack and I got the dreaded call. Now if offered a hundred times over I'd tell him to bring the soup round. I console my self with the fact that our last ever conversation was at least a nice and pleasant one, which unfortunately wasn't always the case in our relationship.

    In general though, I try not to regret too many things as many of the best moments in your life may not have happened without some of the less optimistic ones.

    How about everyone else?

    I have many, but when I think about them I can see the potential for even greater regrets, had I chosen an alternative. I guess that's how it's supposed to be.

    I do regret not being able to speak with my grandmother before she died, but there were circumstances at play there, so it couldn't really be helped.

    I also wish I would have known my wife better before marrying here. Might have saved me the trouble. Haha

    Everyone has regrets. I try to get past a lot of mine by thinking about what experiences or friendships I would miss out on if I chose a different path.

    My 4th girlfriend. I should have stayed friends with her or even treated her better when i went out with her. We probably would have lasted a little longer, she put me into a state of depression for 4 months. I refused help from professionals since their help would void my future career. Im better now. But ive changed for the worse.

    The only regret I had as big as yours was not talking to my great uncle before he died of cancer. He was very friendly and playful with us. The last time I saw him was more than 5 years. Just wish I was there in his last moments.
