    I would spend more time with my mother.

    If I knew she only had a year to live I would have spent every moment with her and been more patient. I lost my mom May 19, 2014 and not a day goes by I don't miss her. The pain and anger I have inside me makes my life confusing and hectic. I don't sleep, I'm always thinking...

    I didn't cherish her

    when I had the chance now she's gone. I tried to give her everything after losing her. She doesn't love me, she doesn't feel for me, I'm not even half the man I used to be. Iv lost my "friends", I'v lost maybe the one person in life that loved me for me. I'm stuck in this deep...

    I've actually had to write a paper on this

    topic. Well, it started with I would go back in time if I could and what would I change or do over. I would actually make it where I wouldn't be born into the family that I was. I would see what being in a different family is like where parents are involved and I mean literally...

    The Theory of Branching Realities (dimension Travelling Voyeurism)

    I used to fantasize about going back in time—ideally with all the knowledge that I have now—to try and change the outcome of my (non-)relationship with A. I'm not entirely sure how that could happen (never mind the time travel part) and maybe it would be like...

    If I Could Turn Back Time

    That popular song from Cher "If I could turn back time.  If I could find a way.  I'd take back those words that hurt you and you'd stay."   I use to listen to that song and wish I could at times go back and take back some of the words...

    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...

    I've don't too many mistakes

    and some I just want to fix badly! Why can life be easy on us? why do we have to live in love and fear? I once missed the opportunity to get a boyfriend, but I was too late and didn't make the move in time! Can life just get any better?

    I'm a pretty firm believer in not changing the

    past because it made me who I am today. But earlier today I was cleaning out a box of junk and came across one of my old journals from my sophomore year of college. Its hard for me to remember myself from back then, because it was so long ago. She seems like a different person...

    Of Course. ...

    Of course. I am such a history geek - it was my major. I would love to venture back to early Victorian America, King Henry VIII's scary days, and even just to the 60s to see what life was like.

    I have always been one to not succeed in school,

    not because I'm dumb, but because the teachers never trust me or don't understand me. I wish I could go back to change things and show them that I am a better person than that. That they are the fools

    My first night as a single dad was tough.

    I moved into my apartment and was lonely without my family. Over the past six months, self realization really showed me where I went wrong. Too little too late. Self realization is such an outstanding experience.

    because I believe that everything happens for a reason, but sometimes I wonder if my life would be better if things happened differently.
