If only.. But that's not possible isn't it? If ever we have the chance to bring it back? what would you do? For me, I should be very careful with my decisions, sometimes I am too weak making a good one, especially when it comes to love. I am too vulnerable with that. But making mistakes will make you more mature and stronger than ever. We learn from it. If we will be given a chance to go back, would you change it or rather let it be?

I believe on what they said: You can learn a lot thru your experience. It is not a good way to blame the circumstances or the things or the people that has been playing a role in your past but rather take a positive view why things happened and how these things can help or motivate your present life.

If I can turn back time I would search another job last year after I graduated from the school.Now I'm be far away from my families and my love.That quite a depressing thing.

hmmm, yes.. it's lonely to be far away from the people you love the most. but hey, at least you've got a job. Do you consider trying to apply near your place? it is not yet too late, you can still. But if getting a job from where you are from is difficult, think twice.

I think most of us have the same dispisition about love. we make crazy choices when we are so much in love that we end up getting in trouble sometimes coz of the wrong choices we made. we may have regrets now for not doing what was supposed to be done. but, hey! Life is not perfect. If not for your mistakes and shortcomings, you wouldn"t know what should have been right to do. we can nevet turn back time no matter how much we want it to happen. just be happy of what you have become after a fall and struggle your way up to make life a much bettet one in the future.

Yes I agree with you, we can never go back to fix the mistakes we've done in the past, if ever i'll have the chance, I will be more careful. But you are right, It is not a perfect life, when it comes to love, we do crazy things we never expect. But it can make us a lot wiser and stronger after every struggles in our life. :) thanks for sharing

Many people want to go back to change something, however, it's impossible and dispensable in my opinion. Maybe you want to correct what you have done wrong, which can happen if you can go back, but every makes mistakes while young and all your errors buid yourself now. If you took other choices in the past, you still cannot avoid failure and regret, which reflects the words "there's no wrong choices but only ones who didn't exert oneself." Don't thinking about if only, what it is like today depend on your ability not the chances. Go ahead without turning back, everything will be under your feet.

I would change the things that happened in my life if I had the chance to turn back time. I would study vocational first before going to college. I would be a working student and manage my salary well and not spend it on unimportant things.

"If I can tun back time" this are words of those people who has regrets for what has passed will never come back, and that includes me. If good opportunity knocks, grab it at once for if you don't you'll be sorry.While still young,just go but with precaution of course just "don't strike while the iron is hot".

I believe that each of us wishes sometimes to turn back the time, but unfortunately it is impossible and we have to take the good part from our mistakes. We have to learn from our decisions and to make sure that we won't repeat the same mistake twice. I would not turn back time because I feel that every wrong decision and every hard moment made me a better person.

I'll just let things happen. Whether good or bad comes out, it doesn't matter. The thing is atleast I learn from what I did. Results of tomorrow makes us who we are, we get stronger, and mold as a better person.

I really do not know what to answer but maybe if I could turn back time. I will just change all the bad things that I have done.Sometimes we regret the things and the decisions we have done before and before we realize it,it is too late.But we can never go back anymore.We should just accept it, learn from it and make our life better than the past.

If I could only turn back time, I would want to go back to the time when I tried smoking, because I find it hard right now to quit. I have tried several times, but I only end up smoking again because my friends smoke too. I was actually hospitalized for smoking, my asthma was triggered due to smoking. Also, because of smoking I get tired easily. I really wish I could go back to the time when my lungs were still working good.

Life is precious and unique for anyone because we can not turn it back.If we can turn back time,then to me life lose its charm and atractiveness.

Wild, wild youth! - Was it, I mean, mine? Not too much, but there were so many follies and mistakes, it sometimes makes me weep so hard to think of it...:'(
That is a very good question. I have many, so many regrets about my past, and there have been times I have wept about it, the mistakes I made, the things I didn't do which I wish I'd done, the waste of time and opportunities, the follies. If I were given the opportunity to do it all over again, I'd do it ever so differently, with a sense of the utter preciousness of time, of life. So, would I change my past, or would I let it be? Well, if I were to return to my youth, I'd like to return with certain things intact; for example, my Christian faith, which came relatively late to me, and the knowledge and relative wisdom age have given me. I wouldn't like to let them go, and if going back meant doing so without my faith (for when I was younger, I was not a Christian), then I'd turn it down, I'd say, no thanks. But equipped with what I've learned, and my Christian faith, I might take that chance and go back, and make changes to my existence: so that when I reached the age I am now, I'd not have so many reasons to have an aching heart.

I would leave my life alone. If I try to erase one thing it will mess up the good in my life as well.

if time can back to before,first of all,i will study hard,before,i think the study is not too much important for me,i only want to play and watch tv,i even hate learning,in the sixth grade,i decided to leave school,because of the bad marks.during that time i was very sad and depressed.everyday i just go to school early and wished back home early.at that time,i dinn't know how to tell my parents,i afraid they will sad and beat me.the biggest reason is that i'm not want them sad.later,i continue to going school,but now i have graduting from my college.though my school not too better,but during my classmate,my school is very better.so if the time back to before,i will study hard and go to more better school.
