We are fated to face a lot of things at our youth stage and all these require making choices or simply making the right decisions.We however tend to do this without the future in mind which later distract our peace at old age.The following are some of the things that may cause regrets at old age
As we get older we become wiser and start seeing life in a different way,in a more meaningful way.It is at this point that you start seeing God as being real. Don't be a young rebel that runs back to God when age catches,know God when you are young and build a future with Him.
- The God you disowned
2.The child you aborted.
There's nothing much that most ladies fear of than getting pregnant at a young age. When this happens the first thing that comes to mind is always to have an abortion. The regrets start to come the moment you become old or you get rich and successful in life. You'll wish that the child you gave up on would be around to enjoy the fruits of your labor but all in vain, it's an irreversible act.
3.The child you rejected.
So you impregnated a lady, she told you she's pregnant and all you did was to reject her and the baby. Years later you'll wish you manned up enough and take the responsibility. You'll see the child succeed in life but you'll have no claim to that grown up child.
4. The marriage you destroyed.
When you get older it will hit you how foolish you were to destroy the good marriage you had or someone's marriage that you ruined. You'll realize the damage you caused to your children and spouse. Be faithful to your spouse and stop having affairs, you'll realize it's worth later.
You'll never get back time wasted in any way. Spending your time on meaningless things when you're young is such a great waste, the lame excuses, the laziness and wrong relationships will cost you.
5. The time you wasted.
6. The opportunities you did not seize
Self doubt and self hate kills dreams and destroy great chances. Many opportunities opens up when you are younger but you let them go just because you feel like you're not ready, the opportunity is too big or simply because you are lazy or too proud. Take advantage of chances lest you come to regret in future why you never grabbed them.
7. Marrying the wrong person
What are your motives for marrying, are you marrying to copy your peers or for social standing or out of peer pressure? Don't be driven by these at all. Make the right choice of a spouse for you will have to put up with this person the rest of your life. Marry the right person, marry your best friend, marry for love and companionship.
