I Wonder About the Path Not Taken

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 199 People

    I Had Two Options.

    In March of 2012, I had two monumental options: stay at my old school, or try out a new school.At my old school, I was bullied by being ignored. People treated me daily like I didn't even exist.  If they treated me like I existed, it was to let me know that I was only useful...

    What If

    Isn't it normal to wonder what if?  If I think about this too long,  it becomes too confusing...  if I had done things different...  I wouldn't have learned the lessons I've learned.  I would not be in the situation I am now.  And as...

    What Life Would Be Like

    We all have choices to make everyday, "what to eat" "what to wear" and other mundane things. There are those choices one makes at significant times that determine who we are or where we are. I make predictions time and again of what my life would be like if choices/things had...

    I Know I Do

    I think it's inevitable that we all eventually wonder whether we've made the right choices in our lives, including all of the "what if's." But the thing I have come to find is that "the path not taken" may not have been a better choice; it is simply a...

    But It's Ok.

    I often wonder what could have been. What would have been. What should have been...   But that's a different story. I believe in parallel universes. For every decision that must be made, a new one splits off holding all the events of the path not taken. knowing this...
