I Sometimes Think Life Should Have a Rewind Button

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 647 People


    Sometimes i wanna say: "(insert your name here), why did you just do that?!?!" I said something i didn't mean. I didn't do something i wanted. I could think of a thousand places i would rewind, pause, slow down and fast forward.

    Here's The Hard Part ...

    If life had a rewind button, and we could do things over, avoid things, or make them go away completely, think of what you have now. You wouldn't have it. It's like the 'butterfly effect'. Change one small thing in the past, even if it is for the greater good, and you...

    Now I Understand

    Looking back I realize my many mistakes. I love my wife but she is a very complex character and I misunderstood her willingness to give me all the sex I wanted on her first date with me. She was no sexpot but needed to hang onto me since I represented an escape from a life...

    I wish I can rewind to my Freshman year in high

    school, so I would of taken school more seriously and maybe now in my life would have a degree and a career. But life does not work that way and I have no clue what I want to major in or what to do for work. I'm 27 and want a rewind to happier days.

    That one moment in life

    where it all changed. I can pinpoint the exact time and place and date. I just need a damn button to rewind and I could fix everything that ruined me.

    Oh It Would Be Fantastic

    So many times in my life I wished that I could rewind time and changes some of the things that I've had to experience.  Not just to change some of the bad but to also enjoy once again some of the really good times.
