I've read this book called Summerhouse and in the story, 3 friends met again after 15 years and they talked about what might have been if they chose the other path or follow their dream and mysteriously, some lady chose them and allowed them to go back to their chosen time/date for 3 weeks. If i will have that kind of chance, i will go back to that time before my mom died ,that way i'll know what to do and save her and probably still have her around , i really miss my mom :( How about you? will you take that chance and go back?

Hi! If I will be given the chance to go back in time, I will definitely do it because I would really like to correct a lot of things. I'd like to go back to my teenage years and that's about 27 years ago. That was the time when I felt I was different from my brothers and sisters and I had so many doubts and insecurities on my real identity. If I could go back to that time, I would do everything possible to find out who I really am and look for my real father. In that way, I could have known him and met him before he passed away. You know, I only found out about my real identity when I was already turning 40 and everything was too late and now I don't even know how my real father looks like. :(

that's really sad.. i'm sorry to hear that. perhaps you can ask some one who knows him, at least some picture so you'll have an idea of what he looks like and that way there will be closure in your life. take care and God bless

If you asked me many years ago I would say that I don't want to go back to my past. But then I think about it again and maybe I can say I want to go back to my past just for the sake of the memories. I don't want to change anything, for I believe in cause and effects theory. There's n guarantee that what I change in the past will bring any good in the present time. It can even be worse since you don't know what's going on next. I just want to see my grandfather. I know he's going to die anyway, but I just want to see him again... just like that.

If I can go back in time, I'd like to have traveled when I was younger. I would have not gone to the college I went to and used my money on travel instead. I wouldn't have married my ex either. But then, I wouldn't know then, so in the end, it may be the same.... so that question is debatable.

I'm so contented with what I am now, but somehow, I would love to and if given that chance to go back, I will correct the wrong decisions that I made in the past. Last week, I watched the movie "13 Going On 30" and that is a good movie about making things right to have a good future.

I don't think I will take that kind of chance. Its true that maybe, sometimes we missed something in our life, something that really important for us. But if I'm thinking about it, I've done many things too in this last few years. Perhaps, it is not something big, but I believe there is a price for that too. I've become just like I am now because everything I've done, and everything I've been through in the past. Every single step I've take, every decision I've made, there is a value in all of them. It is a relief of my hard work in my life. And I don't think I will throw it all away, even if I can change one or two moments in my past as a reward.

so if you pick that the time of your mom will die after several years. For me ill pick to move-on with out my mom. any 1 knows that all people in the world will die and never come back. if u are alive go and enjoy your precious life because all human being have 1 (LifeBar) so be care full. if your mom is alive that is the time to say I LOVE U MOM.. B4 its to late :

The typical answer would be yes. all of us has made a bad decision every now and them in our lives and it would be great if we are able to go back and change them. But think about it if we are able to do that then life would be meaningless for me because it is through our wrong decisions that we learn and we become someone better. We just need to learn from our mistakes and the changes we experience in our lives. because of those things we become who we are.

I think I would go back a year or so just so that I could do my A Levels again and go to a better university. I know that I have the brains to do a lot better than I actually did, I just couldn't be bothered working for them at the time. I would also like to go back to the time where I really liked this guy who didn't like me for three years, and make sure that I told him where to stuff it. I would also make sure that I had more fun times with my friends before we went off to uni.
