    I'd go back in time and insist on a better

    relationship. I got married to get out of my parents house, and away from the small fishing community where everyone knew my family, and I wasn't allowed to be me. I also had depression and anxiety, undiagnosed, and very low self esteem, so I pretty much felt like fat and ugly...

    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...

    I would go back in time

    and would tried harder to stay with you. I'm still in love with you, the loneliness is killing me, even though we have been divorced 6 years I still miss you everyday. I cry most days when something reminds me of us. Wish things could be different. I love you, you was my first...

    Stay in bed the day I met my first wife in 1995.

    I worked my entire life to be financially secure in my retirement only to have her get hooked on drugs and leave taking half of my, 35 year pension and my IRA. Damn her for eternity.

    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.

    Marry someone else. My husband's family thinks

    they are perfect religious good people, but they are fake, full of addictions, petty, homophobic, racist, constipated ********. I would choose a family of broken, humble, loving, healthy, openminded people that would love me and my kids!

    I've been forced to be older

    and more mature than I should be, and I feel like I got robbed of something. I skipped kindergarten & have spent high school one to two years younger than my peers. But yet I feel more mature than them, and they all say I do not act my age. I'm super mature but sometimes I...

    Man, just thinking about those 3 dates with her,

    I definitely could've done a couple of things differently. I could've maybe not said some stupid things, I could've maybe not been so quiet a couple of times, and definitely had opportunities to tell her about my feelings for her. Oh well, life goes on and just got to be better...

    I would love to have travelled more

    when I was younger and single. Explore new places, try couch surfing, getting out of my comfort zone. Just a complete adventure! Spending time alone and figuring out what you want your life to be. For those who have the opportunity to do this, grab it while you can!

    If I could go back and time a fix things I would

    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 always think to myself "If I can go back in

    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...
