if you could go back in the past......

Recommended Posts

Nah... according to all the science fiction stories you shouldn't change your future because it messes up stuff ;P and anyhow, I like my life now.

I would tell myself not to check out the dance party, because it changes the ENTIRE course of my life, and I rip myself to shreds over it.

 

...What? I met someone there?

I'd stop myself from been an annoying brat in prep...

 

And I'd go back to when my dad first started complaining about his back and I'd scream at him until he went to hospital sad.gif

Then he might still be alive...

I would go back and make sure that my 12 year old self met the then 13 year old love of my life. I would keep us both from making decisions that separated our paths for another 20 years. I would do everything in my power to love and understand them and to deserve their love.

If i could go back to the past, I would fix the mistakes I have made. I would go back and be what i was supposed to be, pay attention and do the work I was supposed to do. I would be studious and decide not to bring in this life that can't have a home.

 

i would basically disappear.

 

 

Another thing I would do.. I would go back and not break up with my ex. It wasn't worth my stupidity, but I loved him.

There are so many angst-related issues that I would sort out but seeing as I'm superstitious, I'd probably just meet 10/11-years old me and tell her to stop being so obstinate. & Bratty. Ugh.

I'd go back to a time when Facebook was about to be invented, and then stop the inventor(s).

Oh, man. If I could go back to when I was eighteen, I would go back and tell myself to do more crazy things. Kiss more boys. Kiss a few girls, too. Be more ambitious, because you are good enough to do it. Don't trust that one person not to rip your heart and stomp on it - but be bolder with all the people that came after them. Get your license sooner. Drink, dance and eat more highly suspect food at 4am. Don't stop and start kickboxing or running. And stop settling for 'good enough' - go for happy instead.

 

Do everything that shyness/fear stopped you doing - you will regret it.

 

Possibly reinforced with a good slap or two, just to drum it in.

Gosh, I'd do too many things to imagine. First of all, I'd go back to my bratty seven-year old self and tell them that just because she read a few news articles and a bit of Plato, it doesn't make her the smartest little kid on Earth. I was egotistical, arrogant, and only I know what else went through my little head.

 

I'd also do a lot of things to my parents. tongue.gif

...I am what I am

And what I am needs no excuses

I deal my own deck

Sometimes the aces sometimes the deuces

It's one life and there's no return and no deposit

One life so it's time to open up your closet

Life's not worth a dam till you can shout out

I am what I am...

I guess I would tell my younger self to worry less.

Move up here sooner, date my current boyfriend before I got sick.

Skip over some exs or at least not spend so long with them.

Find a way to visit grampa a final time before he died.

Never work at a bank as a teller.

Travel more before I got sick.

Never spend lots of money on or for a boyfriend.

Get a pet angora rabbit sooner. They are amazing.

 

 

Or at least skip college and get in the IBEW or one of the other trades directly out of high school. I will never forgive my guidance counsellors for insisting I go to college and refusing to let the students with high GPAs into the useful classes like auto shop. I'd have more than triple the retirement saved by now, and be making over $30, maybe even over $40 per hour by now.

But no, go to school they said. It is what smart people are supposed to do. rolleyes.gif

I would tell myself to stop being such an asocial weirdo and make some friends. Also to take school seriously and actually try.

 

But, I wouldn't listen to myself. Current me can't even follow that advice. sad.gif

I would beat up past me, because past me is a whiny, self-important little snot.

It has been two years and I would still do this to every past me, including the one that said this, and the one a few seconds before now

Yes. And I would also enter some winning lottery numbers from the future and... accidentally slip the winnings check into past me's pocket.

There's so much I would change I wouldn't even end up being the same person. There are certain key events I'd try to preserve, but honestly I feel that even changing a small event could alter such major events to the point where they might not even occur.

 

But yes, there's a lot I regret that I wish I could alter. Hind sight is truly 20-20.
