Do you have something that you think about often and it just makes you cringe, cry, or want to scream ? or maybe you just wish you could go back in time and change it, do it differently ? What is it and how would you do it differently ?

There are many things in my past that still makes me cry,s me cringe, and feel angry. There are certain things that I want to change, too. If only it is possible. But it isn't. The past was just too painful for me to forget it altogether. As to how I would have changed it if I could, that is something I couldn't explain because it is too complicated you might not understand what it really was that hurt me so much as a person.

I think we all have bad things in our past, some worse then others. I understand you not wanting to share it with me, or anyone else who may read it. but know that i am a pretty understanding person, and i'm not shallow or judgemental. Thanks for responding :)

ooh sure i do! but you cant really change anything in the past, you can only learn from the mistakes you make, and go from there. i firmly believe everything happens for a reason, and there must be a reason things happen to us! so get over it, get on with it, and forgettttt about it...

I have so much in my life to regret about.And i have so much also to wish about to turn back time and wish to change them. I cant do anything but just reminisce it and just cry. After crying, i feel lighter.

You should try to look into the future instead of behind you. You may not be able to change the past, but you can alter the future :)

At my age there are many things I regret doing in my life. sometimes I regret allowing my family to nag me into marriage, sometimes I regret making some hasty decisions and sometimes I regret being too generous with my money. Thinking about this I would have to say that I wish I could go back and not be quite so generous to people, been a little more careful with my money

Well at least you have learned how to deal with your money now though right ? you can get all the money you wasted or gave away in the past, but you can sure handle it better now right ?

I would definately wanna go back and erase the 4 years that I was with my ex. He really messed up my whole life b adm, beein an abusive cheater. Wish I had the strenght back then as I do today.. if i did I would have left him just as things started going bad, however I have learned that we can not change the past and therefor i have found a way to live with it the best way that i can and make sure that i never end up like that again.

I'm glad you got out of that situation, and i know what you mean, but i guess that kind of stuff makes you stronger does it ? even if it makes you messed up for a while, in the end you learn to deal with other situations a lot better.

I think it is the major i choose to study and its been already three years. There no turning back now..it's not that I'm a bad student but I had intrest on something else .. i just don't know how i ended up with this subject. If I could only turn back how badly i would choose the major i like.

Yes, but I also feel I've learned from my mistakes so I wouldn't take most of them back. I never did anything so "horrible" that it affected someone harshly (at least that I know of.. lol) so I can't say anything has been so bad I'd take it back to save someone else's feelings.
