Survey: A Third of Americans Regret at Least One Major Life Decision

“Regrets, I’ve had a few…” as the lyric goes, is true, according to a new study from Allianz Life. They asked 3,000 people about what they’d do differently.

32% said they regret a major life choice such as profession, college choice and employer… not following their dreams and taking risks such as moving to a new city or going back to school.

The good news is that the survey was also filled with hope regarding second chances – such as wanting to travel and live in different places. Especially since life expectancy is 30 years longer than 100 years ago. 93% were positive about their future in this regard, with only 5% of those surveyed found the prospect of three more decades on earth “terrifying.”

I’m surprised that the biggest regrets mentioned had to do primarily with employment. I’d think a bad marriage/relationship choice may have snuck into the top 3… it didn’t.

But hey – that’s a good thing, right?
