Youth, a time when everything you do, does not affect you much, you do not repent of things, and you live the moment. The sad thing is when you start to notice that things which gave you adrenaline generate somewhat negative emotions that you would like to avoid at all costs, and that is both bold decisions as the most conservative, they have a somewhat bitter price at passing years.
Some are disappointed because of impulsive behaviors such as a tattoo or have started smoking. Others regret not having traveled before forming a family or worry about being happy rather than making others happy. Below we have listed ten things that you may regret in the future, or which probably already causes frustration to you:
Often from 16 to 25 years, we decide to make some tattoos… Women usually choose floral designs on hip, men some tribal on the biceps and over the years they repent. It is logical that at that age. You have a beautiful body, well-hydrated skin and not take into account (if female) that a tattoo on her stomach does not look the same after pregnancy. So before you get a tattoo, analyze some good design carefully and think about your future, it is supposed to be for the whole life, but can be cleared with a very long and painful process.
When you’re young, the most common vice that we choose are the cigarettes. We all think we are rebellious if we smoke and hide from our parents when it occurs that we comprise one. However, when the body begins to take a toll, you cough more often, lose energy and shine of the skin, as well as reductions of the sense of taste and smell, leaving the addiction costing too much… Smoking produces as much dependence as cocaine.

Leaving a career
When you’re a guy, you’re not sure of what you want to dedicate … Sometimes seeing your parents who get so tired from work, watch them stressed, disclosed and others, it makes us doubt what we want in the future; some choose to work and study to keep that career they know that their parents cannot afford, which is also exhausting. When this happens, leaving the university is the first option that crosses your mind. But, do not abandon the race! Let this be the last thing that you will do.
Becoming obsessed with a love
They say that the first love will always be present. But, when we speak of “first love” referring to the person you loved first, not your girl/boyfriend from primary school. Maintaining a bond with a person you do not respond the same way, fight and put all energy into that person may seem a challenge that eventually will become your worst nightmare. Lovers forget that no individual has the right to choose to suffer indiscriminately and holding on to that pain is a major obstacle to personal growth.

Photos or p#rn and other videos…
This point is more common than it seems … Many times we love to do things that we have access to, and we do not think they will affect us. Beware of that picture at the hotel, with that passionate video on that first trip you made together. If the relationship ends badly and your lover is vindictive, be sure that the video can end up in some doorway, now that social media allows them to do it easily.
Betting everything on one project
How many times have you talked with a friend about putting together a business? Wanting to improve our economy, it often leads us to be impulsive and to bet our stash on something we do not know if it will work. It’s a risk that you should take. Just look with whom you do business and if they plan to do is profitable; many will regret not being attentive to other users are presented along the way.

Getting used to the discomfort
There is nothing worse than doing something you do not like. If you work on something that doesn’t make you happy, what are you still doing there? Many often used to uncomfortable situations just to be in their comfort zone and justified with phrases like “no other.” Avoid this kind of attitude at all costs; eventually, you will become embittered, and you will be the perfect candidate for repentance.
Not being thankful for the given time
It is hard to see at first but eventually is clear that every moment in this world, from the most mundane to the most incredible, is a gift given to us and we are incredibly lucky to have received it.
