    Less Miserable comes to mind. I have story's I like to tell and story's I try to forget. The story's I try to forget are the same story's other people in the story wants to forget to, I'm in their story. Ya regrets I have a lot.

    OK Steve, I have regrets from my formative years but not a lot of them. I owe this to three things:

    1) Parents and teachers who kept a close watch over me to make sure I never did anything terribly egregious.

    2) Being lucky enough to escape unscathed when I did manage to do something egregious.

    3) Being self-disciplined, clear thinking, and restrained.

    OK - so number "3" hardly every happened.

    The only type of regret that get's you anywhere though is "pre-regret." I have managed to develop this from watching the mistakes of other. It tends to take the fun out of doing something stupid when you have a first-hand account of the possible consequences. So keep those regrets coming. I still have plenty of stupid things I want to try.

    For me when I say I have no regrets, I mean I have learned from everyone of my mistakes and therefore each mistake is a learning experience and each learning experience made me who I am. I really am comfortable with myself.
