At 20 I did not know myself well and did not know what to look for in a husband.  We raised a family and got along ok but as time went by it was obvious much was missing but we pretended to be a happy couple until our sixties when it all fell apart.

TIME: We all have regrets-If you had a Do-Over what would that be?

If I knew then what I know now I would not have wasted so much TIME foolishly.  I was extremely fortunate to have been raised by wonderful parents but I never really understood the true importance of family.   I never imagined how lonely life would be without the people who made my life so happy.  A loving FAMILY is everything!

It's good that you can realize that. Sorry for what that 1 drink did to your life.

Looking back, I would have kept going to Church when got to be a teenager and beyond. Most of all I would have prayed to God on all decisions, read and studied the Bible and prayed for God to lead me in His will for my life. If so, maybe wouldn't be on 3rd husband and have health and depression problems and deal with anxiety on daily basis.

If I could do anything over it would be to never take that first drink. Almost every failure, humiliation, lost relationship,  and my failing health and fractured dignity have happened because of my drinking habits.

I wish I had taken more chances and stepped out of my comfort zone when I was younger. Luckily I recognized this when my kids were young and pushed them to try new things. Now they are able to enjoy life more than I did.  I also wish I had taken more outings with my kids when they were young instead of waiting for my husband who always put work before his family.
