    I would go back in time

    and kill myself. So many ******* paradoxes with that one! How can I kill myself in the past if I also lived pass that point in the past and ended up killing myself in the past?

    I would go back to November 2013

    when my brother was still here. We just had thanksgiving at my house and played Xbox 360. It was the best day ever. I miss him terribly. I wish I would've bugged him more and annoyed him more in a loving way. As a big brother I've always been overprotective and more like a third...

    Tell my Husband that he was sick

    and that he needed to get some help if he wanted to live longer. I would not have tried to ignore his pain the way he tried to blaming it on the terrible fall he had that caused roto-scoliosis. I knew he was having flank pain but we truly believed that it was pain from his spine...

    I know it's not good to dwell in the past ,

    but sometimes I think about how if I could go back in time I would do a lot of things differently , especially when I was in highschool . Right now I do realize I can't change my past , but I can mask my future , and then my future will become my past , but only difference is I...

    I would avoid the person

    and things that caused me a lot of pain, making me feel all these self-loathing. I would never let what happen degrade me even further than I already have. I would change the future but keep my mistakes.

    when I was born just to make random giggles for my parents again. idk....my mom said that I stopped doing that right when I was almost 3 and I even saw a video of me giggling and compared it to now. My giggles should have been in one of those diaper commercials but now it just...

    truths: -a bit of acne isn't the end of the world -most people are just as self conscious as you are. -don't be so shy- and so eager to settle for second best.

    I would go back in time

    if I could. The number one reason I would do that is so I could reunite with my first love. I would do a better job of communicating with her. If I had done that perhaps we could have had a chance at spending our lives together. I have always been curious about what kind of life...

    Sometimes we can look back

    and see where we messed up. Sometimes when we do or dont do something, even if it is in the tiniest form of making a mistake, you can look at that tiny thing that hurt someone, and see how that one little tiny mistake changed every thing.

    On the surface I think it's safe to say

    that I am successful. Big house, six figure income and a great career to go with it, but when I look at some of my past choices I want to travel back in time and smack the crap out of myself. I dated a lot of women that were users and always stayed longer than I should have...

    I wish there was a rewind button in life to

    erase all the mistakes you've made in the past. If I didn't make the dumbest mistakes like going with someone who didn't care about education, listening to my sister who didn't care about me, and just sticking to making good grades, that would have been great. To be honest, I...

    What kills me the most is

    when you have a boyfriend & he says he needs a "break" & then he finds another girl during that "break"

    In a heartbeat. I think one of the things we

    I would shut up. Listen to you.

    Then I could have understood. I would do the exact opposite of everything I did. With the exception of working at hugs and going out with you. I would show you all I feel. I would have slowed down and taken the time to enjoy you and all of who you are. I would have told you my...

    In elementary school,

    to strengthen the social relations in class we were shown a presentation. The teacher gave us each one wooden pencil, and asked us to break it. A simple task; everyone managed. After that we were given a whole pack of pencils to hold, once again we were asked to break the...

    Just to be a fly on the wall.

    I walked pass my future husband in the halls of my high school for three and a half years before I finally noticed him in the last semester of senior year. Apparently he'd noticed me and had a crush for years -- he'd even tried to talk to me a few times. I can be sort of out of...

    I would go back in time to HS graduation,

    and then go in the military like I planned, so I could have traveled, learned a lot, and met interesting people. Instead, I chose to work in a government office.
