Would you change your past?

July 16, 2008 5:37am CST
If you had a choice or were able to, would you change anything in your past? A decision or an act, or something you regretted maybe something simple like just spending more time with loved one. Do you feel that every momemt, every decicision in your past has led you to where you are and the person that you are and therefore would not change anything. Or do you think that we ultimately end up at the same point/destination in our life, and each decision or action just leads us on diferent path to get there.

no.. there is nothing that i would want to change.. even if sometimes i wonder what if i made a different decision.. would my life be any better?? i have always said that i have never regretted any decisions that i have made so far because at that time it was what i wanted... the outcome might not have been to great... but i made the decision of doing it and there is no point in regretting the decision when in the first place it was what i desired.. i think that whatever decision we make it just leads us to somewhere that would allow us to learn more about life and ourself...

i guess i will change my decision not to get married at an early age..although i have a happy marriage right now and love my husband.. but i guess i need to grow on my own and not force to be matured due to responsibility of being one..

Did you ever think that maybe you would have ended up marrying someone different if you did? Tha'ts quite a big decision to change. Thanks for the response.

actually I wouldn't change a thing in my past.. because without the events that happened to me during my life, good and bad , I wouldn't have become whoever I am now. we learn from our experiences and grow up with each mistake we make, the lucky ones learn with few mistakes, and the unlucky have to go through tests over and over again till they learn.

Thanks for responding. I agree. I think if we went back to change the mistakes so that they never happened I don't think it would "save" us in the future as we wouldn't have learnt the lessons we needed to at the time.
