    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...

    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..

    I NEVER, EVER would have wasted my time on

    ridiculously lame relationships that did nothing for me. I would have just waited for the right person to come along and not been so damn impatient. I never would have focused on relationships, I would have focused instead on making money. I would have built a side business from...

    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!

    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...

    admit to my dad when he asked

    if I wanted to be a girl that I really did and had asked God to change me or let me die. My parents had found evidence of my crossdressing again and my dad was very upset, I almost said yes but I was afraid always wanting his approval and knew he would not listen to me; so 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...

    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...

    To be born in another time

    and live my life before this time. I don't know it's just that some how life seemed better back then. People actually had respect, values were the main dish in the house and falling in love seemed more realistic. Today's world is so messed up and you find few people that are...

    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.

    In a heartbeat. I think one of the things we

    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...

    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...

    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'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...

    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 often find myself wishing I could fall asleep

    and dream myself into a time before. But I know those dreams will turn into heartache when I realize that it's only just a dream and I will wake up to the reality I ended up choosing. Mood (since it wasn't on the list): Melancholy

    He seemed so sweet, in the beginning.

    It swept me away from my last real chance with him. He enticed me with kindness and generosity, no wonder my sweet tooth couldn't stay near to part. I loved him, and now I've lost any chance with him because it was he I chose instead. That was your very last chance to be with...

    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...
