This may not seem important right now, but you'll thank us when you get older. Here are four things we regret wasting time on

1.  Not asking for help.  Studies have found asking people for help and advice actually makes you seem SMARTER, not dumber.

2.  Trying to make bad relationships work.  Putting your time in on a good relationship is worth it.  But we spend huge chunks of our lives trying to fix bad ones.    So sometimes a clean break is good.

3.  Dwelling on your mistakes and shortcomings.  Learning from them is great.  But dwelling on them just wastes time and messes with your self-esteem.

4.  Worrying too much about other people.  Whether it's what they think of you, or just being jealous of stuff they have.  We tend to focus a lot of our energy on other people instead of ourselves.

And this can be a big one ...You can also be TOO supportive.  Being there for friends to lean on is great... but don't sacrifice your own happiness for theirs.
