The Thing That I Regret Most
What I most regret, is not standing up for myself. Throughout my life I have often been walked over, my kindness exploited. Even despite these many experiences, I've still been controlled, manipulated into accepting ideas that I most strongly disagreed with. I didn't fight for myself and as a result I was used, and it destroyed me. Many a time would come when I would do a whole large group project by myself because my group refused to help and I didn't protest. Perhaps the greatest example of this is the friends and allies who've tried to manipulate me into being their puppet, an obedient yesman. I did not resist, I merely surrendered, capitulated without a fight. Regretfully I must admit that I did not stand up for myself, but as from all mistakes I am obligated to learn and improve. Regrets are often mistakes, poor choices that should be learned from and I have learned a great deal from mine.
