Now, back to the regret. I cannot comprehend why people don't let themselves be happy. Sometimes it will be out of fear when in a job for example that doesn't make them happy they are scared to quit and chase that happiness because they won't have money for a while. You NEED to go through that to find happiness and not be lying on your death bed like countless others saying "I wasn't happy with my life".
COME ON! You need to get this in your head. Nothing matters in life if you are not happy. Nothing.
There has been a book written about it people! Enough people are about to die rattling off things they would have changed and things they regret in their lives. That's not you! Don't let it be! Your life is to be lived to the fullest. It may sound selfish but you are the most important person in life and don't you forget it.
Look at this regret again. "Let myself". You shouldn't need to "let" yourself, you should just do whatever it is you want to do that will make you happy.
So go get that job you always wanted.
Go get that full sleeve tattoo (nothing on the face though, you're not Mike Tyson)
Go travel the world.
Go back to school to better yourself.
Go be happy.
Go and don't regret one moment.
So go but never forget these 5 regrets in life.
1) I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2) I wish I hadn't worked so hard
3) I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.
4) I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5) I wish that I had let myself be happier.
