Then I would have said - if I could be 16 again, with the mind that I have now - you bet the hell I would.Would you live your life again?
I agree wholeheartedly. Most of the problems I've had in life have been caused by other people who can't keep themselves to themselves. It drives me crazy.Bandit said:....What stinks is I try my BEST to never cause anyone any problems, but some people are just bred to create problems and make life difficult.
What I kind of wish is, some other people I know would live there life over and leave the peaceful people out of it. (if you know what I mean)
I don't know, I'm not finished yet.I said:In The Twilight Zone: The Movie, the last story was about a group of old people in a home who are offered youth again. Almost all of them accept it – but one doesn't, on the grounds that she didn’t want to have to go through the experience of growing up again.
I also remembered that because it seemed a strange decision – at least, in my teens. Now I'm older I wonder which decision I'd actually take.
After all, on the one hand, it was be great to be able to return to our lives with the wisdom we have already acquired from it. But isn't that all part of growing up anyway?
But isn’t there also the danger of repeating past "mistakes", on the ground that the lessons learned no longer seemed so relevant in a second lifetime?
I'm sure even the younger among us have considered the advantages of rewinding life's clock - if only by a couple of years.
Anyway, what would you do if offered the chance?
Good point. How can one start a new race, when the current one isn't over?Lightkeeper said:I don't know, I'm not finished yet.
If you think about it if you go back and chage things you wouldn't be you. Because the things you've been through and the way you've reacted has shaped your personality so in one sense its a form of sucide because your killing yourself by changing your expirences.brucegdc said:Oh choices, choices choices
1) Go back two and a half years and fight the last custody battle differently. (too soon old, too late wise).
2) Go back 6 years and redo the divorce agreement.
3) Go back 16 years and not spend 10 fighting to save a doomed marriage.
4) Go back 18 years and skip that dinner where I met my ex.
5) Go back 20 years or so and focus more on school work instead of partying in college.
Yes. That is the ultimate truth...Geist said:If you think about it if you go back and chage things you wouldn't be you.

Personally I wouldn't want to go through half the crap I've been through and I know I wouldn't want to change anything about me.
