Are there any time periods in your life you would not go back to even for $1mil?

One million dollars is a lot of money and I would do quite a few things for it but even if you gave me a million dollars I would not go back to 2 times periods in my life for that money. The first is the start of puberty. Going through that once in my life was plenty, thank you. The other time period I would not go back to is the period when I wanted to come out but wasn't out yet to my family. I hated that. I felt like I was lying every day and that's not my personality. When I finally did it I was so relieved even though people flipped out. If I had it to do over, I would come out right away and just deal with it. Even for a million dollars I would not repeat my behavior during that time period. Do you have any time periods you would not go back to and why?

I don't know. There were good and bad times mixed into most periods of my life. I spent a good deal of time in the hospital as a child. I think I would skip that.

Normally I would say, marriage and children. But if I had the million dollars, life would have been so much easier and I would have loved being a wife and Mom. These are the only two things I wish I had never done. Not that I don't love my kids. They are the best. But it was hard trying to be a good mom and pay for everything. And all the stress and worries. No, I don't want to go through that again. I will also never get married again, that was also a one time to much experience. I live with my BF, if I want to leave I can, no stress. But, I do beleive if I had had financial freedom, it would have been a lot easier and then I would have loved to be a Mom and a wife. Oh well, can't have it all. Take care.

I have been lucky, even when there was pain and sorrow, there were good times too. I would like to go back and change a few things, Being older and wiser, I could reek some havoc.

Yes there is plenty of times I wish I could do over again. One is when I was 8 years old and was molested by a neighborhood guy. Then all the other times that I was molested but didn't know what to do about it because I hated causing a scene and/or drawing attention to myself or creating havoc. Another time would be when I was raped by the three neighborhood guys.... different area for we had moved. AND I'd have moved in with my grandparents long before I did. My grandparents showered me with love and devotion which made me grow and learn to love myself.
