Hindsight is 20/20, and it's really easy to see where you went wrong after the fact. Sometimes it's nice to try to save someone else from making the same mistakes you did.

Unfortunately, a lot of things don't seem like the good advice they are until after you've already messed up.


Reddit user u/B00FI asked:

"What is a mistake that you regret that you want to warn us about?"

Keep a close eye on your relationship with substances. Many of you will have serious problems with them and won't realize until you're in very deep.

Triple redundancy...back up ALL your photos, videos etc, I lost about a year of photos which included a couple of big life events, mostly I backed up but got sloppy.

Cloud storage is very cheap but don't rely on just that, put it on a hard drive as well and a few other places.

Also for those who are a little older check all those old DVD/CDs you burnt as they're degrading and data is being lost.

Always watch how your love interest treats other people. The day will inevitably come when that person will treat you the same way.

Not breaking up with a guy immediately after he hits you for the first time. I'm sorry doesn't press the reset button.

Credit cards are not free money. You may need one to build credit but be careful how much you use it, and pay it off every month. It's so easy to charge "just this one little thing" over and over until the card is maxed out.

If your grandparents/older relatives are alive and well, spend some time with them, call them to say hi, just check in with them. When they are gone you're going to be the one left with regret, not them.

Avoid staying in a job where you're totally bored or hate facing it every day.

Some people stick with it endlessly because "it takes too much effort to find something new" (or because they believe an alternative will probably be no better in the long run than where they are).

When you have your first well-paying job save some money. There's taxes you'll have to pay. Plus you might not earn that much forever. Save money even if you think you don't need to. I'm 21 and broke (in debt) even though I earned like 70k a year ago.

2.

Do not lie to your S/O. They're supposed to be your best friend. If you lie, trust will break down, the relationship will start to suck, and then you will end it due to their seemingly unwarranted paranoia, or they will end it because they cannot trust you.

When picking a career it's best to focus on what you're actually good at than something that just sounds more interesting. Regrets have been made.

When you go on a job interview, the last thing you probably never think about is asking a question.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?

As much as we'd like to assume spirits, ghosts, and paranormal happenings are relegated to movies and books, plenty of real-life stories abound.
