    If I Could Go Back To The Past...

    I would take back my first kiss. He was discusting. He just kissed me, a regular kiss, but I hated it. I was 14 and desperate. He was sketchy and not even attractive in the slightest. I don't know what I was thinking. See, I didn't like him, I liked his attention because boys...

    In all honesty who wouldn't.

    But that right there when you think about it is manipulation. For example...if you lied to someone and you go back in time to undo the lie. That right there is what's known as manipulation. And sometimes we have to learn from our mistakes. That's what molds is to become better...

    I wish I could go back in time, back when our love was new. So I could carefully remind myself, of all the things I’ll do for you. All the sacrifices I will make, proving my love is true. All the things that I’ll give up, not seeing you coerced me to. Kept close to you under...

    I love to think about going back in time.

    The trickiest part is picking the point in time where I would return. That's when you really start to think about what you would change and what you want to stay the same. Think about it as a one shot deal. You can only go back once and you have to pick an exact moment in...

    I would tell the little girl I was to be brave. I would tell her the beatings won't last forever and one day freedom will be yours. You'll wake up to home that is your own, with no one to make you cower in fear. I'd tell her to to remember to remain fearless and love without...

    when I would want to go back. Actually I'd just love the opportunity to relive some experiences , maybe make a different choice. I 'd go back to age 18 ONLY if I could retain all knowledge i now have in my possession.
