I saw an ex-boyfriend recently and he told me that us breaking up was one of his biggest regrets. He said that he hated that he didn't appreciate what we had when we were together and that he took me for granted.
(I agree with him, lol.)

I have had similar conversations with exes. But then he apologized. I haven't experienced that before. He said that he was sorry for any hurt that he caused me and any hardships that I experienced as a result. I appreciated the gesture.
But I think that exes are exes for a reason. It's hard when you know that you've tried, that you've loved someone with all that you had and it didn't work out. But you have to ask yourself what is your responsibility in it and what are you supposed to learn from it.
I try not to live my life with regrets. I have had moments where I've been too impetuous, given too much of myself or fallen too hard for someone who didn't feel the same but I don't regret it. I learn the lesson and move on, not everyone will appreciate you so you have to find someone who thinks you're the flyest girl on the planet. And not just in hindsight....
There are things that I wish I would have handled differently but I don't regret the lessons that I've learned as a result of not doing things quite the right way.
