No regrets or changes regarding the UC-related stuff, but lots in the "life" department...
~I would have tried harder to NOT seek acceptance from my parents and to have a better relationship with them.
~I would NOT have taken personal blame for others/events/things that weren't my responsibility.
~I would NOT have gotten married the first time, at age 19, as a way to get away from my parents..I should have left him at 6 months after I found out he cheated rather than forgiving and continuing another 2 years of the same thing.
~I WOULD have trusted myself more...although I did, I would have actually believed in that trust.
~I'm relieved I/we made the decision to NOT have children.
~I guess therapy would have been a good thing when I was younger rather than when I was "older"...but I'm at least enjoying BEING rather than wishing I was never born.
Not actually fun stuff...but life altering.
