    I wish I could go back into time

    and prevent my mother from abusing me so long, with me just taking her blows. I should've fought back but I thought I'd be disrespecting her.

    I wish I could go back in time,

    When I still had you, And you still loved me, And I was your world, And you were mine. But you found someone new, And I can't seem to get s clue, That you'll never come back, Because to me, You're still mine, I still love you, You are my world, And I am yours.

    Whenever I'm feeling depressed instantly I

    remember my late mom because she was the only person that really understand me. I need a person like that to listen to my problem and issues. I don't need people to judge or give their opinion when I'm angry or stress out. I feel alone in this world and wishing that we could be...

    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 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 really like the theory

    that no matter what you do in the past while in time travel the past will find a way to heal itself. It's so much more common to hear the version where crushing a butterfly will completely change the future which is cool and makes sense but I like the other way better. I was...

    I would go to 1998 and tell my dad

    that in a few years he would be diagnosed with aids and die a few months before my second birthday. Maybe he'd still be here and I wouldn't be forced to live with Satan's mistress.

    If I could, I definitely would.

    I would do certain things differently. I hardly ever regret things, because I try to see the light in them. But, there's this one thing that I could never see the light. I still regret it after a year. I still wish to go back a year ago and do things differently. I would not...

    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...

    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 would go back to University

    and stick with it instead of quiting. Its so much harder studying as an adult student holding down a full time job. Its so embarrassing bumping into people you went to school with and they are all professionals and you still work in retail.

    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...
