Do In Your 20s, Regret In Your 40s

Do In Your 20s, Regret In Your 40s

When we’re in our 20s, we’re invincible – nothing can touch us because we are at the peak of knowledge and looks. Unfortunately, it isn’t until we start pushing 40 that we look back and realize all the stupid things we did and the things we should’ve done that we didn’t do.

1- Posting naked pics on the Net
Sure, you’re hot and your breasts are so perfect that plastic surgeons cower in your presence, but when you’re 40 and start looking for a job in the public sector, those pics of you showing everything but nipple and ass crack will come back to bite you in the kisser.

2- Getting tattoos
With perfect skin and perhaps a few too many drinks, the idea of getting a tattoo on your lower back, shoulder, or hip might seem like a fantastic and totally original idea. But it’s not; there are a million just like you.

Besides, when you’re 40, chances are the tattoo just won’t look the same and your kids will make fun of you for having it.

3- Choosing men over friends
“But I love him, he’s going to be here forever.” No, he won’t, but there’s a good chance that your friends will stick around, so before you dump all your girlfriends to spend all your time with your boyfriend, remember that there’s a good chance he won’t be the one you commit to for life.

4- Marrying to young
I can’t tell you how many girlfriends got married at 22 and then had a mid-life crisis at 36. Before you commit yourself to a man on paper, enjoy life a little. Travel, gain sexual experience, live alone. Get to really know yourself.
