I’m pretty happy with where I am right now - my successes and my failures brought me to where I am today.
Life and decisions are a little easier once you’ve figured out/convinced yourself that you want [thing]. So (and this isn’t so much a regret as it is a wish) - I wish I had convinced myself that “I WANT TO BE [thing]” so that I could have made all my decisions around that.
Buuuut would I necessarily be happier or more successful? There is still no guarantee.
The worst part about making friends online is the lack of closure if they suddenly stop talking to you one day. You have no way of knowing what happened to them. It could be as simple as just them not wanting to talk to you anymore (hurtful, but simple) or something terrible and serious. And the longer they’re gone, the more you worry and wonder. They could come back as suddenly as they left, or they could be gone forever. But you simply don’t know; you don’t know anything.
