35 Things That Will Give You Regrets When You Are Old

They truly say “youth is wasted on the young”. Young people often don’t realize the opportunities in front of them and then they later have regrets about them. Like that time when you had the chance to learn a new skill but you just felt lazy. Now having a family and kids and growing old, you can only regret your laziness. Youth is short-lived and before you know it you will be bound with the compulsions of life, unable to pursue your interests and passions. So, instead of having regrets when you are old, make sure you do these things in your youth.

1- Not travelling when you could

Travelling gets harder the older you grow. Especially when you’ll start a family, you will have to pay for three-plus people, instead of just one. Not only expenses grow but the difficulty of travelling to remote places also grows. If you want to witness the wonders of the world, do it while you are single and young.

2- Not learning a new language

Many of us take a foreign language in our schools and colleges but just for the sake of it. We don’t actually learn the language and so, it’s highly likely we remember nothing of it when we grow old. You will regret that.

3- Not opting out of a bad relationship sooner
