Not letting myself go enough. I wanted to be great at everything: school, relationships, family, rugby etc And a lot of time I didn't enjoy everything as much as I wanted to or could have because I wanted to be good at everything. Sometimes I was, sometimes I wasn't.
But really nobody was forcing me to feel that way except me. I overthought stuff a lot and didn't talk enough about my feelings.

...not persuading my best friend not to get on her new boyfriend’s motorbike, which prevented her life to fully live to its conclusion...

In contrast to the two above I actually regret going to University when I did. I'm an August birthday so had only just turned 18 and wasnt really ready to go, didn't want to be there so far from home and found it pretty hard to make much of the experience for the first two years. Got a bit better third year then I did a postgrad degree somewhere else which I loved but yeah, if I could have the time again I'd definitely have had a gap year and would have thought more about where I went as I moved 5 hours from home which was a bit far really

It is, unfortunately. The perfect was always the enemy of the good for me. Unless I could write Eleanor Rigby every-time I tried to write, then I was always going to be trash. Songwriting always seemed so innate that I didn't really understand the concept that every writer in history started off writing nonsense about not being understood as a 14yr old.

I'll grow a greasy pony tail in 10years and start a Floyd covers band instead

ive been involved in music all my life in one form or another, it honestly is never too late. I have many friends that focussed on it in later life and have never looked back
