I Would Go Back In Time If I Could

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 44,719 People

    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 I would have lost my

    virginity to someone different. It still hurts when I think about him. He was a mistake. He treated me poorly and I let him. I wish I had known better. I hate that I gave something so special to someone who didn't love me.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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"

    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.

    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 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.

    I would go back in time

    if I could and not tell a lie I told to a friend. She's a wonderful person and one of the best friends I've ever had and I messed up. I don't think this will ever be okay and I'm willing to deal with that, as it will serve as a lesson to never lie again.

    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 would run through the woods barefoot,

    swim in the stream and search for solomanders. I would speak to the earth and animals again. I would be free of this body I feel trapped in. I would dream big and have no fears. I can not remember when I lost that adventurous little girl.

    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.

    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...

    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 love to, but none of us can,

    so it's just best to learn from our mistakes and move on. I believe that the past molds our future, and if we have a conscience it will make us better people.
