Some men enjoy doing what they love even though they know it would have a negative effect on their lives; as a result, they end up with the experience they despise and learn their lessons the hard way. Are you a man, most likely a young man, who has already begun to regret those decisions in your life? Anytime you reflect on your past actions and how you should have stopped them, the best thing you could have done, and the course you could have taken, you are filled with sorrow and remorse. Don't be too hard on yourself; they'll serve as experience, "experience is the best teacher."
This article focuses on four things that most men do in their lives that they later regret. Such items may seem to be beneficial at first, but they eventually lead to dissatisfaction and regret. If you're a man, please take a look at the items listed below and double-check to see if the writer is right.
1. They are not following their hearts in terms of their career path
There are a lot of men out there who have abandoned their chosen career to do something else. They were perplexed at the time, lacking adequate education and orientation; most of them were persuaded to take a different direction by their parents or peers, which they now regret. Are you one of those gentlemen? Do you have any regrets for not following your heart and choosing your dream career path? If you answered yes, you are undeniably irritated today. No matter how hopeless you feel, all hope is not yet lost; you have another career to pursue; make the best of it. It might be too late to change to your preferred one, but if you can, and you are certain that it will not harm you or your family, then go for it.
2. The kinds of friends they made during their youthful years
Many men mistakenly define friendship as people with whom they go to play, drink, and pass the time, while caring less about people who will have a positive effect on their lives. And now they're kicking themselves for not making better friends.
Is this something you've seen yourself? You struggled to make good friends; the friends you did make were those who enticed you to participate in illegal acts with them, and they had no positive effect on your life. It's a terrible thing to hear, but the only thing you can take away from it is the "experience" you gained and the chance to make better friends in the future.
3. Their misguided mindset on marriage, which had a major impact on them
Many men did not receive the proper marriage counseling they needed, and those who did received it declined to follow the advice. They did what they wanted, what they felt was best, ignoring their parents' and elders' advice, and now they are paying the price. Have you ever regretted marrying your wife because you married her too soon rather than waiting a few years, or because you disregarded your father's advice and married your wife anyway? Right now she's giving you a headache, and you're second-guessing your choices. I wish you happiness in your marriage and patience and tolerance as you work to make it the one you want.
4. Depended on education as a means of getting money
So many people, especially in Nigeria, saw education as a way to break through to financial success, and after working so hard to obtain a university degree, they discovered that all that glitter is not gold. They regret not so much the time and money they spent in training, but rather the fact that they were unable to learn skills that would have enhanced their lives.
