Do you ever wish you're a different person?

When life gets too difficult to bear or if I had nothing to do but daydream, I sometimes wish that I'm a different person. All that what if's came to my mind. Do you think it's wrong to think about that? I don't have any regret at all with my life right now and I know I should be satisfied but sometimes, I just can't help but think of that. Do you also think that way, that what if you're a different person? and you're not who you are right now...

i will be a lier if i say i didnt wish i was a different person. when i got married i thought it will be a marriage that was simple but sweet for the person i married has the same personality as i am. but i was wrong. he turned out to be a concieted, abbusive and possesive person. we have four children and he beats us all. he beats me in the first part of the marriage but i was hoping he would change. we left him. i packed my bags and left him a tagged my kids along with me. and when the kids and me are living alone i dont know where to start. feeding them, school, taking care of them and working at the sametime. yes it was hard and i wish i was a different person. now that i surpass all of those trials that made me a strong person, figther and a survivor i no longer think or wish i was a different person. but during those times when i was in the middle of the eye of the storm i do thought about it.

That's a very inspirational story. Thanks for sharing it with us. You're such a tough person and I feel sorry that you and your kids have to suffer that way. There is no forgiveness to a man that beats women and children. You just happened to be married to the wrong person. Just rest assured that God will have His punishment to him. It was glad to know that you and your kids are doing doing okay now. I wish you all the best and more blessings to come. Stay safe.

thank you very much for the warm and kind words. it made me teary eyed. it is nice to hear when someone appreciates what i did. i know of my ex-husbnads where abouts. i heard from a mutual friend that he is abroad married again but no longer together for he also beats his wife. some people never learns and do their mistakes over and over again. my second born even told me that she wishes that if ever her pops has his new family he will not do what he did to us. unfortunately, oops... he did it again.

No woman would stay long with him if he continues to do that, hope he realizes that and if not, I pity him. It's sad that he's being left behind but it's his fault anyway. Be thankful that you're out of his life now. Thank God :)

Yeah.. I usually wished that..wished that I didn't make the mistakes that I had done and wished I'd just know how to lead my life. Sometimes I wished I was born as a guy, but then again..being a guy is not all that easy either..hahha. Well, in the end I'm happy and hope to be grateful of who I am I guess..if not I'll be miserable and that wouldn't be really good. Have a nice day. Princess

I wished I was born a guy, too sometimes. I think it was fun to be a guy then like you, I realize that we could make the best of ourselves regardless of anything. Have a nice day, too.

I wish I was someone else right now. I daydream all the time thinking why god has choosen this path for me for mylife. I have a lot of regrets. I wish that i could change some stuff but now its too late. I don't ever think that is wrong because you are trying to make yourself better. you just need a mentor that is all.

It's sad, the fact that we can't turn and go back in time and change what we wanna change but then I also realize that when we all have the capability of doing that, everything else will be messed up 'cause all things are intertwined. I guess I would just say that let's make things right by making smart decisions.

Sometimes yes, but then I remember I could be where that person is and even better by trying harder at what they do. I'm a musician, and to have my favorite bands swim in money makes me jealous all the time, but then I remember that if I try hard enough I can be bigger and better than them.

Yeah, you have a point. Maybe, the ones we were wishing to be could be an inspiration to us to strive better and harder. Well then, good luck with everything and I hope you'll become a famous musician someday.

I really don't ever wish I was someone else that I know or anything, sometimes I just think it would be nice to be someone different in general you know? Someone that doesn't have this to do or that to do. Sometimes I think it would be so much easier than everything that I have to put up with now.
