i would like to start over from my childhood elementary school where my life took a turn from normal to wuss
Posted 7/28/07
Well... It's time for me to give my personal opinion.

The answers are; no and no.

This is basically for reasons which everyone else has put, in addition;
I'm really enjoying growing up as me... I know some really cool people who, if I ever went back and tried again, I would probably never meet, or just estrange due to the random coincidences of the universe.

Even though there are things about my life that i'm not happy with, i wouldn't change a damn thing in it.
Everything i have done up to this point has made me who i am.
I wouldn't want to change any of that, because then those experiances i have lived through would mean nothing.
If i had to relive my life, i would even get raped twice AGAIN, because of my rapes, and my experiances, i've been able to help other girls who have been raped.
Because of my excessive drug use i have been able to tell the signs of a drug user all the time.
Even with all my random sexual encounters, i've learned what i like and dislike sexually.
Even with all the crap that has happened to me, i would still do it all the same.
I'm still intelligent, i'm still nice, and i'm still sincere,
There's nothing about myself that i would do any different.
I love who i am today.

I would however.. love to be as healthy as i was when i was 22.... i was skinny, i was rock climbing ALL the time... i was eating right, and sleeping regularly...
I miss 22..
But hey, that's part of life, getting older and learning from the wisdom you've gained along the process.
I would even re read the crappy books i've read... Because i learned that i don't like them!
Now i know!
My motto is to live life with no regrets, if you begin to regret the things you've done, then you tend to focus more on the past and there's nothing you can do about the past, and the past will come up and choke the current life out of you.
What's in the past is there for good.
Let it be there, learn from it, and move on.
If you didn't have those things to learn from, you'd just make the samemistakes over and over again.
And probably even worse types of mistakes!
Be happy with who you are,
Be happy with what you've done.
Dont' regret anything.
Not even not studying harder in school, because the other things you did, you learned SOMETHING from them.
*gets off soapbox*
Sry guys.. i kinda went on a rant there...
I just hate it when people moan about the things they wish they'd done.
If it's something you still want to do... DO IT!
You're NEVER too old to do something.
Don't let a number make you feel any different than what you are.
YOU are what you need to depend on, not the feelings you wish you had or the choices you wish you'd have made.
If you want to do something, IE get a college education, but you're grades are low... WHO CARES! you don't need harvard, or if you think you do, then go to a JOCO for awhile get your grades up and THEN go to harvard!
There are tons of things in the world you can do.
Don't dare let ANYONE tell you you can't.
No matter who you are or what you want.
(yes even murder! - if that's what you want... THEN DO IT, but don't be surprised when the law shows up to arrest you)

Don't let fear or regret rule your life.
You'll end up miserable.
*kicks soapbox further away*
Ok i'm really done now.

^ sorry I can't convince myself of that. The notion that you would not change anything because that all made you who you were, has been said prior.

Note that I start with the assumption that I have the knowledge of my former life, and perhaps that makes all the difference, while you don't say. If you go by my assumption, you would basically have the bad experiences of the past in memory, but be able to have more years to live (assume...), as well as redo the situation to your advantage. Still say no? And that bit at the end seems to be advocating murder.

Nice little soapbox though...

now that i re read it it does sounds a little emo grrl ranty doesn't it?
wow...
But if i could go back with the knowledge i have now... I would.
Yeah i definately would.
There are moments i'd like to stop.
Example, I'd like to have called Ray back the night he killed himself.
Or NOT walk down the alley with the guy behind me...
pay attention in school and forget the army...
yeah there are things i would go back and re-do IF i had the knowledge i have now.
but at the same time, would i be the same person now?
I don't know if i like that idea... the unknown kinda scares me.
but at the same time... wouldn't i just make the same mistakes at another time?
if it's part of who i am, then i WOULD make the same mistakes...
i would think anyway.
And the last part fyi wasn't about advocating murder, just an example of you have choices to use and choices to make every day and if you don't act on them, you might always regret or not regret.
either can be bad, really...
But i was just saying basically that each person makes their own choices and those choices are a large part of what defines a human being.
those split second choices that effect the rest of your life.
Example, I turned the wheel of the car to the right and took the ditch, had i turned the wheel to the left to swerve around the truck, then i would have ran into oncoming traffic and possibly been a paraplegic or even died.
There are result and REactions to every action you take.
ANd the murder part is trying to illistrate that no matter what choice you make it has a ripple effect on what you do.
It's like the Movie the Butterfly effect.
Same concept.
I don't know if i had the knowledge of the other options if i would take them.

I really don't know for sure if I would go back, now that i take a moment to think about it.
I'm pretty comfortable in this life.
In the things i know.
Would i want to have my life better at the loss of my daughter?
No.
Never
Had i not done the terrible things i have done in my life, i wouldn't have had that wonderful little miricle.
and she's what makes this present pretty damned good.

*kicks soapbox*
Sry... this thing just comes out of no where!

I wouldn't want to go back, because if I changed just one thing, it would probably change the outcome of my life.

I like my life the way it is. =]

Oh I`m gonna post again and plead insanity. Is life a f*ckin video game? When you can just hit the f*ckin reset button? Last time I checked no the f*ck its not. I mean your actions being changed effect multiple others. Imagine Hitler winning world war II. Russia remaining the Soviet Union (getting funded). The Patriots not defeating the British. Napoleon winning at Water Loo. The Book of Genesis Not being written (i`d be happy if it wasent )

Yea go on and shift time for you jack off desires. It boils my blood to take part in such events. Like I said once and I`ll say it again. Changing your life doesn't mean you can dodge death!! Consider it for just one second. Your actions might even cause an early death. Oo this is my new statement "for every non - action you get a extreme opposite reaction"

(I`m well aware its a hypothetical topic, So what!! )

What point would you go back to?
When i'm in high school

What would you change?
Listen less to my parents and NOT try soo hard in middle school and high school

And another point;

If you could remain any age, what would it be and why?
19. Old enough to understand..but not having to be completely responsible for your own actions. Had a blast being 19...the partiess..ahhhh..good memories. lol
