If you could change anything in your past what would you change?

I would have stopped being a door mat much sooner.

I would change many things. But most of all, I would want to change the college/career path I took after high school. I went into a major that was WAY over my head and failed at it. Now, seven years later, I'm starting over with a new major. But I believe that if I had done this a long time ago, I would not be currently stuck in a job that I hate.

Good survey - I usually don't like essay questions. smiley:::smile

I could easily fill Bill's server with my complete answer to this question.

magbast: Yowch! Pot and panic...a bad combination indeed. There's nothing worse than getting really baked and ending up in the Emergency Room with what you think is a heart attack. Bad, bad, and bad.

I'd tell you, but I don't have all day.

Aheh. I'll tell you when the statute of limitations kicks in. ;)

I used to always say that I didn't believe in regrets and that I didn't regret anything that I ever did. I do, however, regret one sexual partner that I have had. Mostly because it ruined the best friendship I ever had. And it was not very good for my self-esteem. Other than that, everything in my past has led to my life today, which is pretty much perfect. I do regret hurting my best friend, though.

I would not have allowed myself to become a carbohydrate addict!

I would have picked a different major in college.

Could I, would I? I would if I could, but I can't so I won't. It's more important for me to understand the past and how it affects me today than it is for me to wish changes on the past.

pandora answered this more eloquently and succinctly than I did.

Anything at all? Or just anything I did? I try not to have regrets but I often find myself wondering what would have happened had I gotten out of various doomed relationships a little earlier.
posted 13-Dec-1999 6:50pm  
A failed relationship.

I made the mistake of not telling anyone when something horrible started happening to me. As a result, it continued for 7 years.

Not a damn thing. I live for today.

Dating boys.

Lonxedosol: Are you that frustrated? Or just plain disappointed in men?

Maybe she just feels the time would have been better spent dating girls? That's my guess.

TwM: I can't blame for that. Girls... mmmmm! smiley:::smile

I would have broken up with an ex-boyfriend in a better way. He's the only person I know who doesn't want to speak to me, and it still bothers me even though I never see him or an ever likely to. It's probably stupid that it still bothers me 6 years later....

I would have gone to college right after high school instead of waiting.
posted 4-Feb-2000 5:08pm  
Can I ask why? I'm just in sort of an important college decision making just wondering..

pandora: my sister deferred University for a year after high school and went to Europe for 6+ months. Watching her friends go through Uni and get burnt out she decided it was the best thing she could have ever done. I guess whether to have a break or go straight through really depends on the person (and their circumstances).

pandora: Just to offer another experience, I went into the Air Force right out of high school and I wish I'd gone to college right away instead. I didn't get to college until two years later and it was really hard to deal with the fact that all my friends were Juniors while I was a Freshman. I ended up bailing out after a year.

I would change nothing because then I would have learned nothing I take life as a learning experience.

Most of my drunk nights, I wouldn't have dropped out of high school 4 times due to drinking and drugging. I wouldn't have treated everyone so poorly during those times. Naaa, I wouldn't change a thing, those are the things that have made me the person I am today. And how I treated people, well, now I know who is going to stick through all with me.
posted 14-Mar-2000 3:18pm wouldn't have been a drunk
or abusive (preferably I would have had 2
different parents than the ones I had). Would have gone to a different college, would have majored in something else.

That day at work while I was in college, it would have changed my life forever, but I was too much of a pussy.
