    Idk if I'm the only one

    but I wish their was a guide or something tht u get around a certain age that tells you what choices you make in life will take u. Yeah it may take away the fun of discovering it on ur own or seeing where life takes u but not everyone would have to take it.

    I'm Surprised

    I'm surprised this group is not larger. Or maybe there are more people content with their life choices than I realized. I've always admired those who can say "I have no regrets." And hated them for it, also. I think those who are truly happy, are those who have choices and...

    I have thought for a long time

    that the course of my life has depended on a series of small choices. I met my wife on a visit to the pub shortly after breaking my nose playing sport. Had I not broken my nose I would have been at college and the visit to the pub wouldn't have happened. Would I be married to...

    Think about it all you want.

    But know that you can't undo the past and even if that special person were to come back to you. Chances are they wouldn't now be the person they were then.

    Would I be any kinder?

    Would I be more open? Would I have a better job? Would I be lonely and broken hearted? Would I have more friends? These are few of the things that could be affected by bad decisions I have made in my life.

    But your path may change little or big. For better or for worse.

    and this title popped up. It made me think. What WOULD My life be like if I did? Dare I say... It would be better and Easier?... I make choices everyday, and no matter what the choice is... I seem to always put myself last, and in turn seem to suffer the most. So had I...

    I wonder what it would be like

    if I didn't spend so much time on the internet, like if I didn't use the internet all the time. Without internet friends, what would I be like. Would I love sport, or have a bunch of friends? What if I used my childhood to be outside?

    If I came out to my family 10 years ago,

    would that make a difference to my life? So there's no need to keep things secret even until now. It's tough when you feel like you're lying to your family when they should know the truth. If I didn't stop myself and take that cigarette from him, would that make a difference to...

    Each moment is an opportunity to make different

    decisions. Right now I am very tired. I think I have been doing many things right but I am too tired to do anything at all. It is a true test of living, to accept what I am have done until I am rested. When I wake up I can think again.
