    I would...to do things i stopped doing to

    please others, or because they were not what i was expected to do; and on the other hand to not do those i did for the same reason. Not original at all. I guess we all do the same mistake.

    I would go back in a heartbeat!

    My childhood was horrible and I wouldn't want to relive it again except to go back and make major changes! Stand up for myself with my parents and their abuse, tell myself I AM worthy of love! I AM worth something! I am worthy of being treated well and not be a total doormat to...

    I would go back in time to change one moment.

    Rameka, If I could go back in time,

    I never would have visited you after you moved to Las Vegas. All of this pain could have been avoided and we would still be friends. I remember how things used to be with us, how often we used to talk. I can't believe that it's over. I love you.

    But I don't want to change anything.

    I know some people think that along the way, they made a lot of mistakes that wrecked their lives. To those people I say, that mistakes are meant to guide us, not define us. We learn from our mistakes and develop our characters. The past is like a puzzle, like a broken mirror...

    If I could go back in time,

    I would go back to the first day of 7th grade and would tell myself not to throw away my future to skip school. I would tell myself that the only one who will suffer from it is me. Basically stopping myself from f*cking my future up royally is what I would do. It's the one thing...

    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 would love to go back

    but not to change anything. I live without regret!! I want to explore and see history first hand. I believe in past lives and I feel deep connections to a few different time periods. I'd love to go confirm some thoughts.

    I Wonder

    If I could go back in time would I be able to right the wrongs of the past? Could I make a difference in more peoples' lives? Would I be able to make these changes without impacting the present? I wonder.

    It's frustrating to see them struggle to be happy or act happy, and they used to be so spectacular and fun. As a kid, I never had the guts because I was too partial to how it might make them feel. Now I know firsthand that things like depression, anxiety, and fear shouldn't be...
