If I could live my life all over again, I would?

If I could live my life all over again, I would probably had studied more and listened more to my parents. I should have not pressed myself into things I want and let life decide itself. To be particular, I should have not spent my savings on my wedding just because I wanted to have a beach wedding. Now, my marriage is not in a good state and If I would have to marry again, I will make sure my significant other would want to marry me - even if takes a lifetime for him to give me what I want. :)

everafter, Frankly, I just do not think we could ever have a chance to live our lives all over again or turn back the time. Fair enough, we do make mistakes and yet I wonder if life would ever be challenging and interesting enough without them. If we could ever grow up without theses mistakes or wrongdoings. Hence, I just find no other befitting words than that of Maria Robinson where she once said: “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

if given a chance, i will choose to get married at an older age. it would be when i have a better job and a better savings. but i will still marry the same girl and have the same children we have now.

Relating to marriage, wich is important is not the party, but life after the wedding. probaly a simple party, it's okay. Costs should be only for a party, can be used for investment. Well, we'll feel comfortable life after marriage because they have incime from the investment.

I guess there are a lot of people who are in the same boat as you, including me. If I could just get back the time I wish I didn't marry at an early age as well. I could have been traveled far by now in my career as I was very promising. I didn't regret it totally though because of my children. They make me feel complete in a lot of ways.

If I could live my life all over again I would still love to be me. I would still love to be born in my family and love to raise the family that I love so much and have now. But I want to correct some of the mistakes I've made which hurt my parents and friends a lot.

My parents always told me that good things come to those who wait but impatient little ol' me didn't listen to that. I always rushed into things and wanted to learn things on my own and if I could live my life all over again I would have to say that I should have also listened to my parents and stayed in school. Have a nice day

If I would live my life all over again, I wouldn't get a credit card! Lol. But seriously, as for now, I'm still happy with what I have. I'm happy with my democratic family. I'm happy with the job I waited to have for four years, I'm happy with my friends who've been with me since highschool and I'm happy with my boyfriend who's been supporting me all the way. I feel for your regrets in life. I understand how impulsive we were when we were younger since we're still searching for our identities and we forgot that our parent had already been to we've been going through now. However, just hang on, things will turn out fine. For any regret you have, remember what Master Oogway said, Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift that's why it's called "present". Dont' lose hope. Things will turn out fine. Just be wise this time. :)

it would certainly be nice if we could go back in time and do things differently especially if things are not going too well at present. there have been times in our lives when we had to choose which road to take and that decision has brought us to where we are now. i sometimes think, what if i had done this instead? well , the reality is we can never go back; so just deal with the present situation, make the best of what there is and look forward to what tomorrow may bring.

I do find times where i wish i could start life all over again. I would definitely make better choices for myself. There were some many missed paths of opportunity that I didnt take. When we are young, we think we know more than our parents do. In the end, we find we may be wrong. Listening to a parent's advice is worth heeding.

i know exactly what you mean. i would re-do a few things, decide differently on some stuff, turn right instead of turning left, etc... if that's not possible, then a 'pause/rewind' button for life could do too.. if those inventors can include a 'erase' button, that would be incredibly awesome :)

Always we realise things very late only. That is why you mind weeping so sinfully. Remember, our parents are the real well-wishers in our entire life time, may be 2 month old bay or 52 year old we are, for them, we are always their child only, (at least for me it is so). Now you feel sad about your deeds. This is more than enough to realise the facts. Be more careful of decisive things in life, which may keep us cool in the rest of life time. It is sure that we don't have a rebirth of life as how is. Still from your imagination feel so and make an embodiment of your imagination and be get relaxed. Best of luck. Thank-s
