If you could do it again, would you do it the same?

I know I have done some pretty wild things in my life, from partying all night, breaking rules, stealing road signs, screaming drunk out of the car window, hooking up wiht many men, I even went mudding riding on top of a jeep!If I could do it all again, I would do it the same. Although it was crazy things I have done in my past, I still had fun doing it, and I will never regret it. The teenage and young years are meant to have a little fun and party every now and then. So tell me, if you could do it again, would you do it the same? What would you change if anything?

I think i would do it the same. Although I might be a little more considerate to peoples feelings. I believe our child hoods are the reason we are what we are. Plus I had a blast and it was nice to have fun.

yup. it's always better to just stick to what we had been before. you're right limosonia. we are what we are now because of who we had been before. we might have a fun or a sad past but it's always a part of our lives already. so be it.

It is as you say you have to have fun while you are young and free as you can't party the same when you have responsibilities. The only thing about thinking of what you would have done differently is that it changes more than that one thing. For example I did not have a happy marriage so I could say if I could go back I would never marry. However I love my 2 sons more than anything and could not imagine life without them, if I hadn't married I would not have them. What I would change then is this, I would like to have saved money from being very young instead of always spending it and I would have liked to have taken up running or something like it so I would be slim, fit and healthy now as well as wealthy.

After a life of many ups and many downs, I have come to peace with myself and my world. It took all of my ups, and all of my dowens, to get to that point. To change any of them would risk my present serenity. Thus I would not change a thing.

I would definately do it all the same. Even the negative portions of my life are important to me as they are what has made me who I am today.

Living the life in fun is the most important thing who wild it may be. The age does not matter for it and am doing so and will keep on doing so.

While I have not been as wild as you have been, what I have done that was crazy, I'd gladly do again. It was fun, and since no one got hurt, including myself, I have absolutely nothing to regret. The fun I've had, I'll gladly have again, if given the chance.

If you are talking about with the knowledge I have now, then it would be impossible to make all the same misteaks again. I have a self preservation that would kick in to stop the really foolish stuff I did. If you are talking merely about choices that I made in life then I probably wouldnt change much. I think our misteaks build character in us and those who dont try dont learn and have their character formed in positive ways.

As much as I understand the whole "older wiser" thing I can still say I would go back and still relive the fun stuff but I would probably do it up even better BECAUSE of the wisdom I hold know ;-)

I would like to repeat the same thing over if it's not a wrong thing and if I don't regret doing that. If it's something that I regret doing then I would definitely change it. So it all depends on what I did and stuff.

If i will answer your question about doing something bad and to do it again, i will never do it again. I know it is wrong and will not happen again. I am sorry but i dont like making things like that. I am scared especially i can see people doing something wild.

i have said so many times in life that i wish i could do so many things over..i would change a million paths i walked and a million tears i caused to be shed ..it makes me wonder however if i did do things differently would i be with who i am now? would things be the same in life as they are without as many regrets? because i wouldnt trade my husband for the world or several more like it ..but still i would have hoped our paths would have crossed in life ..but it would be doubtful ..so do i wish i could change things...alot of them yes...some of them no...because i still believe we are where we are posed to be for a reason :) have a wonderful night

just do whatever you want.whatever you enjoy. i am not so crazy(maybe)as you ,but i really admire you ,and if i could do it again ,i won't do it the same. coz my life is so peaceful without any great waves.so i really want to have a change if possible. i want to do what my heart wants ,but i didn't ,because i am astricted by the so-called tradition ,and others'concept.

I wanted to say no, but if I did things differently, like avoided the mistakes I made, then I wouldn't have 3 great kids. So I guess I wouldn't do anything differently.

It is hardly impossible to do again what you have done at your young age. I have done many thing such like what you have done but due to age I have to think twice before doing it again.

Of course,I have done many things which I think I did well,so I will not change them if I can do them again.However,there have too many things what I have done badly,and also made me much unhappy,so I will change them if I can.

what i would change is that i would do a lot of things that i wanted to do and never did. lead a wilder life if possible. do a few more not to be done things.
