What is your biggest regret so far?

I am a teenager. And I love asking questions. Especially to adults. And TED is a wonderful community filled with intelligent people! I think we learn more by asking questions. Please tell me, What is your biggest regret so far in life?

    Jun 7 2012: The amount of time and energy I waste trying to get friends and family around me to LIVE their lives to the fullest. It's a catch 22 of sorts: If I go out and do what I want, when I want it... then I'm labeled anti-social and self-absorbed. But if I sit around trying to cheer lead others into joining me...I never get to do what my heart desires. I've finally gotten myself to the point where I ask once if they want to go with me...give them a second to decide - then I go with no regrets. I only wished it didn't take me to my late 40's to develop this mindset.
