well here's a question.. 10 years ago you were?. this and that and are you still like that right now?. what things have changed in your life?. well for me 10 years ago i was ambitious and idealistic.. i had far fetched dreams and i never gave in to practicality.. i used to love law and i used to want to be a lawyer but right now i do not know anymore. all i want is to be able to graduate and get a decent job. so much had changed in the course of 10 years. as should be expected but i didnt know it would turn out like this.. i used to love myself and i used to trust my instincts but right now i dont know.. how about you?. what are your realizations and what are the things that changed in your lives as compared to your life 10 years ago?.

10 years ago I was not in a good place. I was depressed, I was anorexic, I was flailing around looking for direction. I am AMAZED at the amount of growth I've experienced in the past 10 years. I am finally happy with my life and myself, and even though I still have bad days (who doesn't?), I am thankful to not be anywhere near where I was years ago.

I am definitely not the same person I was ten years ago. Ten years ago I was just out of highschool and only really concerned with hanging out with my friends, with no real direction on where I wanted my life to go. I am much more focused on my life goals and much more sure of who I am. I would never want to go back to who I was ten years ago.

No I am not. Ten years ago today, I was yet a mother, that would not happen for a few months. I was just entering my relationship with my now husband and I was working a third shift job as a Nurses Assistant. I had no future plans and didn't really care. I was young, only 26 and was living from day to day. Boy has all that changed! Now I have two girls, married have a home to tend to, a volunteer job, meals to plan and shopping to do. LOL, I think I am not even the same girl at all now. Time is a strange yet amazing thing isn't?

I am not the same person I am 10 years ago. I have matured and know now how to value love. I have taken for granted love before and it taught me a lesson. To never take love for granted cause when the time comes that she have gone away you will be the one who will be hurt the most.

I am DEFINATELY not the same person. Today I'm a pretty mature 20 year old with her whole life ahead of her. I work and try to pay my bills and get out of debt before my fiance comes home from the military. That's right. I'm getting married!! We're getting ready to get a house and get married and start a family. It's wonderful. And ten years ago, well, I was 10. lol

I don't think I was the same person ten years ago because ten years ago I wanted to be 18 and now I am alreasy 20. I used to think like a kid and was very immature but now I already understand why my parents was like that to me and for what reason they did that. I think I am more mature now and more responsible since in the past all I want to do is play and now all I want to do is graduate from my studies and start earning money.

Ten years ago I just graduated high school and I was about to enter college, I am carefree and wanted to be a lawyer then but now.... I already have my own family and finished fine arts instead. Too far from my childhood ambition. But I have no regrets I am happy with what I am right now.

Well 10 yrs ago, im still me, what differs now is i want to explore more than before.. Before all i have to think was only to play to eat, sll those childish act, but now i have to think is for the future for myself, my career and my family,, i have to adjust to the level of maturity and growing old.. Im still me, the person who wants to discover myself to other dimension where i can fully understand what and where i should belong..

10yrs ago,i will surely feel shy in front of guys.I have no confident at all in doing everything.But now, as time goes on, i grew up and learn more.The feeling i face last time has gone.Its quite a funny experience to think back 10 yrs ago.

As long as there is dreams, challenges will never stop. Challenges will burst out high when chances came out of nowhere. these are the cause and effect link that flows out in every growth. Consistency is the sole arm of achieving it. 10 years ago i was an innocent child, feeling carefree of what's happening around. Wanted to become a flight stewardees yet as time passes by it leads the diffrent way. Now, i am totally different from what i once was. Oppurtunities of fortune changes me and followed ended was written in my fate. Yet, the time 10 years ago has its own beauty to remember too whereas now of course is the time where i should say is more happier than what was is past.

uhmm,, this is a complicated question... one thing i can say " knowing nothing is better than knowing it all" actually that came from one of my favorite song. anyway, as time pass by the reality for me become more blurry.. like you i also find myself lost in the dark and dont know the real me.. what do i like, where i want to be, who should i be and other things that composed a good human being.. i dont know 10 years made me more deluded and i dont know if how many years i have to go jsut to find who i really am.

I've gotten a lot of changes after 10 years. physically, emotionally, spiritually, my thinking, everything but the values. So i don't think i am the same person 10 years ago.
