So, when a Reddit user asked Millennials of the internet nearing their 40s, "what were your biggest mistakes at this point in life?" people were ready to share the lessons they wish they didn't have to learn the hard way.
Not taking care of my hearing, not even 35 and going deaf - Kusangi8811
Not getting healthy earlier. - zombiearchivist
Staying too long at a job in my 20s, just because it was safe and easy. When I finally got the motivation to leave, ended up with an almost 50% pay boost. - Hrekires
Pining after the wrong person -runikepisteme
I wish I spent more time with my dad while I had the chance - CharlieChooper
I'm not sure if people have experienced the same but when I entered my 30s I became convinced I was rapidly running out of time. Rather than using that as motivation I let it paralyze me with indecision because I "couldn't afford to make the wrong choice." Consequently, I'm now 39 and, though I've had great things happen in my 30s, I regret spending so much time worrying and so little time committing to a course of action. - tomwaste
