Why This 46-Year-Old Banker Regrets Spending His Life Making Money

Last week, Australian Redditor JohnJerryson found out that his wife has been cheating on him for the last decade.

The discovery sparked a lengthy post reflecting on his life in the sub-Reddit r/tifu (“Today I F—ed Up”), called “TIFU My whole life. My regrets as a 46-year-old, and advice to others at a crossroad.”

“I’m a 46 year old banker and I have been living my whole life the opposite of how I wanted,” he writes. “All my dreams, my passion, gone. In a steady 9-7 job. 6 days a week. For 26 years. I repeatedly chose the safe path for everything, which eventually changed who I was.”
