you might think you can go home whenever you please... think again, the smells, and people that stare at your changes. This is not such a good idea. We all leave things behind, even if we did not mean to. You let your hair down, you attract new attentions, the blood in your viens reverses its course, no going back. As long as you go in a good way, not bad, god will forgive the directions you travel.

well, we all have good and bad memories... you are still very young and so you have many good memories ahead of you! i remember you lost your boyfriend once in one of your discussions... i hope you resolved that problem (in your heart anyway).

I don't know if i should answer this literally or figuratively- I guess i'll just answer it bothways- Literally- No i cant go back to our old house again- because its no longer ours- but i really wish i could though. I miss that place, thats where i grew up. I even had my own room back then. I miss the ambiance, and i miss climbing up our roof and studying my anatomy atlas there at night. I miss that old house.. i just wish my mom didn't have to sell it. Figuratively...sometimes i do want to go back in the past- just to make things some things right. Or just to "feel" what it was like again...I guess im really not much of a mover- I do tend to wallow in my past and reminisce it more than i should, may it be good or bad. I received a message this morning that i think can relate to this topic: "hard but can be done and better for us - forget the good we do to others and the wrong others do to us" well, thanks for this discussion and have a great day!

well, we all should move ahead in life, keeping the good we learned from ourselves and others, and tossing aside the mistakes we made, and harshness we stumble upon. if we did not have regrets, we would lead a boring life from all the risks we did not take... the more we learn, the more human we become, and when we are more human, we can see the humanity in others more clearly. This is when surface beauty fades, and we see a deeper beauty that appeared not to exist before - a chance we should grasp for. you have a great day too!!
