chance to change

We all know we can't turn back time. But If we were given the chance, would you try to go back to that time and change it? Why and why not? For me I won't =). It doesnt mean I didn't experience bad things. I've been through a lot actually (and in one way or another it helped me to be a better person each day) and I'm happy to say all of those things happened may it be good or bad, but it did happened because of my own decisions. So I don't have to mourn or regret about it. Because If I do, It would be hard for me to move on and face life squarely =). Life goes on whatever happens and I always look at the positive side. Along the way I know I'm not alone, someone almighty is always with me. So nothing to turn back time, nothing to mourn.

I have often said "if I could only go back in time".... I had thought that I would change this that and the other thing BUT.... I love my current life. Sure, there are a few things that need to change but I can do that in the future. But I have very little to complain about. I have a great boyfriend, a wonderful kid, a good job, money in my pocket etc... So when I now think about going back in time and changing things I think to myself that I arrived at this point in my life because of the good and BAD decisions I have made. I mean, I had a failed marriage, being Catholic this is horrendous and shameful for me. I have thought that if I could go back in time that would be one thing that I would definitely change however, if I chose to NOT get married I might not have my wonderful little boy and I can't picture this life without him. So many little and big decisions have culminated to my present and I am happy. So no, I wouldn't change my past.

same here. I am catholic and is now separted but not yet legally. But I am really doing my best to annul it. I know it's not good. However I wanted to be in marriage that god is still the center of it. And it really didn't happen, and now I am not keeping it.

There may be things that I'd like to go back and change or fix or not do certain things, or do other things instead. However, then things wouldn't be the way they are now and who knows how they would be. You can't go back, you have to learn from the past and go forward and try to stop putting blame on yourself and other people.
