What am I going to regret today?
Going to the museum, which could be fun, but I'll probably just get pissed off by my grandparents. I'm getting my hair cut really short, which I'll probably regret after the happiness wears off. I'll want long hair so I could put it back or something. I'm going to regret not telling my mom that I want to live here and stay here in Chicago forever and forget about living with my dad.
But most of all, out of everything that I could regret, I regret everything. It's funny to be so messed up at the age of fifteen. But it could only get worse. And there's one for your history books, friends.

I am 39 years old and I also have regrets. In fact I started the last thread (Lack of Ambition).
In spite of my regrets, I am comforted by the natural world. The smell of the air, rainy days, sunny days, trying not to lose sight of the wonder I viewed the world with when I was a child.
Do not take your own life. There is TRUE BEAUTY everywhere. Find it. It may be VERY HARD, but FIND IT!!!
When you are fifteen, everything seems confusing and impossible. Everything is possible. You must stand tall and try to challenge the world. I do this as much as I can, and it seems to work. Do not give up, never, ever, ever, ever!
There is natural power in the universe that you can learn to tap into. Some people need to call it GOD. If you need strength, there are plenty of ways to get strength.
Do not befriend just anybody just so you can have a friend...some people are evil assholes. Be suspicious of peoples motives and think critically about what they do. Eventually you will come across honest, kind people....DO NOT SHUT THEM OUT BECAUSE THEY DO NOT LOOK COOL...honest, kind, open people are the best friends (the ONLY friends)to have.
Keep waking up.
