    Strangers Reveal Their Biggest Regrets In Life For Powerful Photo Series

    The regrets range from heartbreaking tales of lost parents to choosing the wrong football team.

    Romanian photographer Alecsandra Raluca Dragoi asked strangers to share their biggest regrets with her for a new photo series.

    "Not having the confidence to be the best I can be."

    The 22-year-old said no one had ever asked her what her regrets were so she decided to try to help others admit theirs.

    "When I stole my sister's money."

    Dragoi said her biggest regret was not speaking up when she had to.

    She is now asking people she photographs to write down their biggest regret on a piece of paper.
