    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...

    If I could go back in time change every

    heartache, every loss, every bad decision, every fall. I would be someone else. Maybe happier, with less scars and nightmares. But definitely not as strong, smart, caring or empathetic. No I probably wouldnt go back for that. I would go back to change one moment in time...

    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 to 08

    and never went to the party where my boyfriend died... There is not a day that goes by I don't think about him at least five to six times I'm think I will ever find a man that could ever take his place I love him even though he is not here..

    Going back in to time to change mistakes I have

    made would be awesome obviously but I would even like to just go back in time to live through some of the big moments even without changing anything...although I would like to pull a Back to the Future and go back and make some wise investment decisions!

    I'd love to go back to the 50's.

    Things seemed simple. Everything now is so complicated and there's so many choices and options. I would have loved to raise my kids back then, we could actually take a walk down the street. They could play outside till it got dark and we could sleep with the windows open. Things...

    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...

    I wish I could go back in time.

    There are people who I wish I never met, there are other moments where I wish I had or hadn't done something. But everything happens for a reason, and that's how it's going to be.

    I've pondered this question.

    .. if you could go back with what you know now, and change your path in life, would you? I've talked to many people that say they wouldn't. For me, I would want to explore those paths not taken. What if I'd continued roaming the world? What if I'd gone to university? What if I...

    ...never get a credit card.

    ...never get married.....work about as hard as I have now and be retired. Way to many mistakes and wasted time and money on crap that really does not matter......REALLY WOULD FOLLOW GOD's Guidance a lot sooner in my life.

    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.

    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...

    If I could go back in time.

    ..I would love it. My dad died ten years ago when I was six years old. I would easily go back to when he wasn't in pain and he could do things without me feeling guilty because he would have to go take his medications to be able to play outside with me. He had six herniated disks...

    To be honest I wouldn't change much.

    There are plenty of things in my life others might want to change if they were in my shoes, like the time I nearly smashed my teeth out when I was running around where I wasn't meant to be running or not going out with certain people but honestly those experiences have helped...

    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...

    If i could go back in time i would.

    I would only change one thing. I would tell myself to act on my thoughts to hurt others and not go to therapy. I know it would make my life vary different but I would love it if i did do that. Just the thoughts of cutting people open like i did to so many animals. I want that to...

    Back In Time...

    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...
