Biggest Regrets in Life

Do you agree that everyone has regrets in life? Or are you one of those who doesn't believe that you should regret anything in your past? Well, in today's vlog I share MY life's biggest regrets - and maybe a little TMI (too much information). I hope you enjoy the video!


I share four different things that had to do with various stages of my life. From dropping a subject in secondary school that could have really helped me out later on in life, to not seizing opportunities during my college/university days. I also wish I had lived on my own before getting married and I definitely regret having premarital sex! Hehe, I'm married now and my parents can't beat me so I can freely confess!!!!!!!! BUAHAHAHAHA!

Anyways, check out the video please and let me know what topics you'd like me to take on in future videos.

In the meantime, remember that if you do have regrets, you should leave them in the past and not allow them to shape your future. We all make mistakes but we should learn from them and move on.

  1. Aww Berry! I really do pray you have no regrets moving forward *sending hugs from Naija* My dad forced me to take French up till Senior WAEC level. I really dint understand why then but i did have a really good grade. It did come across useful down the line while job-hunting straight out of school even though i don't get to speak it everyday like a conversational language and no one looks back to my high school results anymore.

  4. Hi Berry,

    Bursting at the seams with honesty, as always.

    I'm reminded of the song by Mary J Blige- "In each tear there's a lesson"

    We all have our woulda-should-coulda moments. :-)

    We live, we learn, we grow and evolve into improved versions of ourselves (I find myself saying this a lot these days. Lol)

    1. Hey Nedoux,

      I don't believe I know that song. I'll look it up.

      And you're right about Living, Learning, Growing, Evolving, Improving!

  5. Hey Berry! Thanks for sharing. The parts about taking opportunities really resonate with me. I've been more conscious of going after things lately.
    It's beyond beautiful how you've grown from the you in the past you described. You come off very confident, sassy, cheerful and you have SO MUCH personality. ♡

    1. It's very good that you're being conscious of opportunities around you - they may never come by again.

      Thanks so much for the compliment! I really appreciate it. :)

  6. I love the vulnerability in this video. Let the past be the past! God is doing a new thing.
    I never liked Maths in secondary school. I have a little bit of regret about that but like you said, we should learn from them and move on.

  7. Thanks for sharing, I agree on wishing I had continued French even up to WAEC level, but I dropped it in JS3. It does make a difference when you’re bilingual or have some rudimentary understanding of another language.

  10. Awww, I dropped french in JS3 but I have just picked it up and I'm enjoying it way my classes way more than I did then.
    I wish I explored Europe while i was schooling in the UK for 5 years. I've learnt from my mistake so encourage younger friends to travel round Europe when schooling in England. I know I will have the opportunity to explore Europe real soon, just gotta work hard and make that money!

    1. Yes, I noticed on your Snapchat. At some point I should definitely try and pick it (or Italiano or Spanish) back up.

      Woot woot to exploring!

  11. Hi Berry, I'm sorry Bellanaija had to use such a personal video to make a sensational heading.

    1. Truth be told, I didn't click on the link over there - lol, the comments there can be brutal. But yeah, I wish it could have been less TMZ-like.

  12. I can totally relate to not having lived by myself before getting married, having premarital sex and not taking certain opportunities that presented themselves. This has actually given me an idea for a post.....

  13. Awww,It's just my first time here and I love you already. Your sincerity is charming. About your French, let me say that I was one of those students who took it seriously and made an excellent French Language result in SSCE. My Dad refused me studying it in the University cos I wanted to, sooo bad! He made me believe I needed to study Medicine, where I flopped so bad.My passion made me go ahead to attend a French Language School afterwards.But in all these, Let's just say not everyone ends up as an Ambassador or Diplomat as they tell us. It's good to have had it but sometimes even having it wouldn't have made a difference except you want to hold on to the fulfilment of just studying it and flaunt a 'c'est moi' phrase here and there.Lol. I know some people who studied it in University, they can't carry on a conversation in French now. So you can always learn it anytime you want. The more recent, the better!

  14. Hi Berry, brutally honest as usual. I really appreciate you listing premarital sex as one of YOUR regrets (no judgment o, abeg). Reason being, you definitely come across as very fun loving and full of life so for that to be one of your regrets, in 2016 for that matter, takes a lotta courage. People would say anything popular to be trendy and relevant and premarital sex is definitely popular so I applaud your courage and kudos.

  15. Can I just say that your voice has a calming quality to it? Like it's lovely! A lot of the time the reason why I can't watch videos is because their voice is unappealing to me and I'm sensitive to voices.
    Anyhoos, I like the fact that you're so open about things you're not proud about and see as regrets, it allows me to exhale as a person who is ever so conscious to not make the 'wrong' choice.
    And that thing you said about your low self-esteem being the catalyst of you engaging in pre-marital sex - it spoke to me deeply. And I believe that is the truth for so many young girls who do that, and not just that but put themselves in relationships with men that don't benefit them, we need people like you to talk to us!
    So thank you!
