Well I know its a hypothetical question but some how you gets another chance to restart your life again will you lead the life the same way you have lead so far?To me I could never make up of my mind on this question. Certainly there are few things I would like to act upon differently but I am not sure what really that be making a difference as no one knows what future has store for you. Can I have yours comments on that?

That is tough. I would not want to change what has happened in my life. My daughter and all. But, I would like to have the opportunity to change the outcome of some situations and handle things alittle differently. I am not sure there are enough instances I would want to change to really make me want to do this. I would love to change some of my times in high school and maybe even junior high. That would be most of it. And some things that went down in my marriages. But if that changed any of my present day interactions or happenings then I wouldn't want to even go there. Know what I mean?

That was a good question though. Gave me cause for pause.

I would change some descions have I have made in the past. I have often wondered what would have happened if I said yes or no to certain oppurtunities. But life is a series of choices and reaction to those choices. I don't know what road I would be on now if I said yes to situations that I have said no too and visa versa. I wonder if I would have the wonderful friends I have now or the great realtionship I have with my family. It would be great to have a mirror to see what our life would have been life if we did this or that without the consquences of it.

Yes you are never sure what's in store in future.You take one path knowing its right and then you never know where its all going to lead.

There are some things that I would do differently. However life is a learning experience and you will make mistakes as you go along as well as there are things that you will nail on the first try. Take all that you can from your experiences.

Hmm?Yes!I would definitely chose to have this life again but of course with some exceptions. Undeniably,If ever I would have this life again,I would change a lot of things and one of those are my stupid mistakes,wrong decisions and etc. Wanna know why I still chose to have this life again?It's because this is where I found my friends. The friends which I value more than my life.

Well rectify the mistakes on words in yours life as you are never sure what new mistakes you going to commit when a second chance is given to you.

I would not lead the same life for obvious reasons but it seems that you believe in rebirth theory!

I do believe in re birth theory but my question is different. Its all about of getting a chance to lead the same life again.

no, i think for me, I'll surely would change something like mistakes or misunderstandings between friends and family, because if i'm to change all those, i'll definitely be more happy and i'm sure every1 will be happy by then, and all those chances that i let go, 100% i will be going after them because by the time i realised i'd lost them, it's already too late...so if i can live the pasts again, definitely i won't walk the same way as now, at least not for a bad life but towards a far more better life!

I have many things to regret.I always regret something.I know it cant be back,but I still think this way.This is a passive attitude.If given a second chance,probably I still lead the same life,though I may regret.I am a stubborn person.

There are plenty of things that I could have done differently...but because I'm myself, I wouldn't. So that's a tricky question to answer. See, if I came back to a different family and a different life altogether, then of course I'd be different. My family means everything to me and I've become who I am because of them. Without my family, I wouldn't be me. And there are certain things that have happened in my life that have shaped my thoughts and philosophies and made me the woman I am today. If I was born again to a different family in different conditions, these things wouldn't be the same and I would be different, so I wouldn't live life exactly the same. Though, when it comes down to it, my life's been darn good so far (despite the usual ups and downs and deaths and fallouts with friends/family) and I have to say that I wouldn't change anything if I could. I try my very best to live life with no regrets, and so far I've been able to live up to the motto.

Thats the key, "try my very best to live life with no regrets, and so far I've been able to live up to the motto".

Yes. I have plenty of things I could have done differently, however everything is a chain reaction in my opinion. My greatest love is my daughter. I had to go through the journey to get the outcome of being a mother. I would not be complete without her. Therefore whatever mistakes I made along the way brought me here. So long story short, I wouldn't change my life now for anything.

I as many others might regret some things that I have done along the way or wish I had done them differently but I am pretty sure I would live is very similarly all over. If I changed those little things that I think were not right maybe I would not end up where I am today, and that would be sad for I have had an amazing life journey so far. And I am pretty sure those little things that I did wrong have prepared me better for what the future will bring because everything is a lesson on itself.

There are several decisions in my life that I would take back and change. I'm generally happy with my life right now, don't get me wrong, but there are a few things that were totally within my control that I wish I could have a do-over. Now, whether or not these would have ended me up in a different place than I am now, who knows. Would the place be better or worse, would i be more happy or miserable? To change these few decisions, I'd take the chance.

I don't think that I would do anything in my life differently if I was given the chance to because I am very happy with where things in my life are right now and where they are going. I would be worried that if I did something different then the life I have right now would not be the same and I like everything the way it is. I suppose if I could go back with the knowledge that I have now, I would make my mom go to the doctor at the beginning of her illness so she would still be here with us, but that's the only thing that I would consider changing.

Hi, aryangentleman I like myself and I count myself lucky to have the family and friends that I have. But one thing I really would like to change is my attitude towards studies when I was young. I guess you could say I did ok, I pass all my subjects, I graduated on time and I have my profession. But sometimes I wish that I was not so lazy then I could have done better in grade school and could have been academically excellent in highschool. But during that time I did not see the wisdom of hardwork. I thought then that those who are top in class are just lucky to be very intelligent. I was totally clueless about being diligent with my studies -- study hard, do my homework and absorb every lesson like a sponge. Oh well Have a nice day!

No...I definitely would not. I would have never started drinking. I would have never started smoking. I would have done better in school. I would have never befriended a person a certain couple of people either. I also would have never exceeded the posted speed limit. I also would have never gotten a credit card at all. I am sure there are a few other things I would have done differently, but I can't really think of them right now... I have a good life now, and I am sure that things wouldn't be as they are right now if I had not done some of the things I listed above. I don't have any real regrets right now. I have come to terms with the mistakes I have made, and I have moved on. I just try to make the best of life from day-to-day.

Yes I would re live the same life again because the majority of my lifes happiness and purpose is my 3 daughters and though I may fine tune a few things like a better income for them and maybe finishing school I wouldnt change a thing.

I don't know if i would lead the same life,i supose i would change a fews things.I don't regret anything i've done,but i could of done better.I difinitely would of got a better education (stayed in school)and i wouldn't of wasted my time on loser like my ex,all though my guess is that we learn from our mistakes so maybe i should stop complaining about my past and move forward,remember that i have a beautiful son and that i can teach him what i've learn so far in this life....maybe the next one will be worse!
