If you could re-do ONE thing in your life, what would it be and why?

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

I know this will make me sound awful, but I would have never gone after Bodhi's father for child support. I wouldn't have spoken to him again. I know that if I hadn't talked to him when Bodhi was 2 months old, he would've just disappeared. Now Bodhi and I are both stuck with him until Bodhi is old enough to realize his father is terrible. :\

School. I know I was miserable and bored out of my mind, but I wish I hadn't dropped out of high school and hadn't waited so long to go back to college.

I would have never got rid of my house and 2 cars to go over the road as a truck driver with DH because now we wish we had those things again.

n.o.t.h.i.n.g, not a fan of regrets. Reading through the other posts I suppose I'm lucky not having made decisions that affected me as strongly as some of you guys have.

Like Fluga, I try to live with no regrets. I am in a really good place right now so it is easy to say it was all worth it because I have so much now, DH, DD, great quality of life overall. There were plenty of questionable decisions and things that could have gone easier for me if I had done it differently, people I hurt unintentionally, risky behavior, years of not properly attending to my emotional and physical health, but I learned from it all and in the end I am who I am now, and where I am now, and I wouldn't want to change that. I say leave the past in the past and work on the present and future without dwelling on anything too much, just take the lesson from it and go forward.

Because you did the best that you could with the information that you had at the time.

I could spend time and energy regretting having let a very unsupportive midwife break my waters when I was in labor giving me the worst possible birthing experience for me. If I had been assertive and told her no things would have gone better, I'm sure of it. Realistically though at the time I thought she knew something and I was in no position to stand up for myself. Instead of regretting that decision I am angry that it is routine to treat women in labor so badly. It's a matter of perspective I think.

(not saying that this kind of thinking applies to everybody's regrets though)
