I have screwed up major a ton of times in my life but when I look back at all those stupid mistakes I couldn't go back and change none of them because if I did I wouldn't be who I am today. I wouldn't have my wonderful children, own my own home, none of the things I like about my life would be in my life if I hadn't made the choises I made. I may be richer, have a better job, less mouths to feed, but I wouldn't want to give anything up and the money just don't mean that much. My life may suck but I won't give up the good things for the promise of a better tomorrow cause yeah who knows if that is going to be better then what I have now?

If I could go back right now and change my life, I would stay in school and make sure I got all the education I could get and then it would give me a chance to have a better life in the future, women are groomed that you go to school, graduate and get married, they never think of what might happen, divorce or losing their spouse, that is when they find they don't have to skills to get a job and survive after. So I think instead of getting married I could of gotten an education and not had to live the rough life that I have.

it really seems that you are going thru some very tough times. i really do not want to get into your personal life. but all i can do is pray that God gives you the strength to overcome your difficulties and give you a happy life. as a matter of fact today even i feel that if i had carried on with my education for a while longer..it would have trully made a big difference. its not what we learn at school (coz we learn more with the life and get street smart everyday) but in todays competetive world its the certifications that count---whether you have actually learned something or no, does'nt count much if you are certified. trully this is sad. i am sure you have skills and the potential to still do it. its just a matter of looking within yourself. so buck up and give it a shot. beleive in yourself, do not think about the past...just live for today and make a better tomorrow. God bless you.

I'd probably stay in the Air Force and toughed it out for E5; then pushed like hell for E6 and 7. But I felt I wasn't getting the support to test for E5. So I got out. But if I had the mindset now, I would have worked like the dickens to be the best there, get a change of assignment OUT of there and be the best I could be there. Now, I could say, not marry my husband, yet I got two girls out of that, but he caused me problems, and some of that affected them. but to be honest, I wished I got married to someone better. I wish I got a masters, but then again, I could go for that now.
