What according to you is the greatest mistake in life you have committed so far ? Given a chance to time travel to the past, how will you rectify it?

According to me, my greatest mistake is the one that brought to become the person I am today. I beat myself up over it for a long time, but my brother opened my eyes a year ago, and now I am grateful for making this big mistake. Two days after I turned 18 I left to travel with a carnival. I left behind my family, a business I had started, my church, and my education. I thought I had committed the greatest sin ever in my life and a lot of repercussions followed me. BUT if I hadn't have made this "mistake" My world would be much different than it is today. I wouldn't have two of my four children, and possible the fourth as well. I would actually probably have more kids with more fathers and living completely off the state. Instead I have gone through some tough situations, including a failed marriage. But I have learned from each of these trials, and developed into a person that I am truly happy to be. If I could go back I wouldn't do it any differently. except I wouldn't beat my self up over it for so long. I would just embrace each new challenge as a growing experience instead of a hurdle to cross.

Yes dude.. everyone learns from mistakes only. The only difference is that you have suffered for a long time. The seed you had sown gave you the fruit of life.....
