Looking Back What Would You Have Changed???

As I look back on my life I wonder what would have happened if I had gone on to further my education. I had thought about but ended up getting married instead. At first I thought I would change getting married the first time. Then thought that it would mean that I wouldn't have my daughters. That is something I would never change. They have all been a blessing. So, even though my first instinct is to say I would not have gotten married to my first husband and gone further in my education, I think I would say I can safely say I would still marry him. I would have kept up working towards furthering my education no matter how hard it became. What would you have changed?

There is not one thing I would change, everything that I did, good or bad, made me who I am today.

@AbbyGreenhill that's true, if you changed anything you wouldn't be you.

You can still be much more assertive, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. You are the one in charge. @Hatley

@Hatley you definitely need to be more assertive. Don't let any body push you around.

I would have kept up with piano lessons, worked harder on music when I was younger, and married someone I didn't marry.

@TheHorse I think we all wonder what could have been if we were with another.

Wouldn't change a thing, I am happy with who I became and what I have done.

I think that if I could have changed anything, it would have been when we started our family. It would have been a little nicer if we started during our first year of marriage instead of a year later. But I would have only changed it by a matter of months, so otherwise I am pleased.

@Juliaacv I am happy for you. I am satisfied with my own life I just wonder what would have happened if I had finished my education.

If I could change anything then I would have made myself more confident when I was younger, that would have had an impact on a lot of things, but obviously that was just the way I was and I couldn't do anything about it!

@Fleura I think that is a great thing to change. I also could have used more confidence.

@HazySue We'll just have to try and use that confidence now as there's no going back!

If I said I would change something then maybe I wouldn't be where I am today so no matter how i feel I would not change anything at this time.

@Marcyaz I think you are right. You would be at a different point in your life if you made changes.

I would change everything. Believe me. Well, mainly getting married. Not to the woman I did marry. She turned out to be bad. I also would have taken better care of myself. But we cannot go back, at least not yet. So, we deal with the choices we have made.

@inertia4 I think that the only thing I would change at this point is taking better care of myself. Most people seem to have a problem taking time for themselves.

@HazySue I know. I am one of them. And my girlfriend tells me. I do worry about my kids and always put them ahead of me. And I also put my girlfriend ahead of me. I guess I feel that if they are fine I will be. I know that's not a good way to look at it. I am in the process of going to doctors and getting checked out and being fixed.

I understand that completely, I wish I had done things differently in my life instead of getting married so early. They say everything happens for a reason, not sure I believe that though.

@cintol there are those who believe that everything or most everything is preordained. I like to think that we have a little bit of control in the decision making. I wish I could see how things would be if a made a few different decisions. I think it would be interesting.

@HazySue I would love to go back and make different decisions and come out with different outcomes.

@Missmwngi it's wonderful that you are happy to have him now. I think things usually do turn out best in the end.

@HazySue We kind of don't see the better side of something when it happens and later we realize it was the best

I don't know if there's a heck of a lot I'd change but maybe I would have learned to take more time for myself instead of running myself ragged all the time

A lot of the mistakes I've made, which would be too long of an answer to list.

@xstitcher we all make mistakes, some big and some little. My mistake was to not further my education.

It's a difficult one, I wish I was a bit brainier, perhaps paid more attention in class, but even if I was branier...I would still want to be exactly where I am now.... I would not want to change any of those things.

Looking back I would change a lot of things, maybe I will do a post about it later. I know they say, your past makes you who you are today, but there is still many things I would like to re-do if I could.

@TRBRocks I look forward to seeing your post. I do agree you past does make you who you are today but sometimes there are changes that would make it a little better.
