If you could, would you even want to . . .?


If you could go back to being young, let's say, starting in your teens, would you really even want to do so? I know each of us would love to have an opportunity to do some things a little differently, or not at all, but if one did go back, one would just make new mistakes, so what I am really asking is, would you want to even live your younger years over in this day and time?

    Thanks Rosemary! Really great answer here. Me too, I would not want to relive those years for anything nowadays, and plus have to go through all the pain of the new mistakes.

    Hi Maggie, I believe you are the first one to say you would want to go back. You are right, we shouldn't be afraid to make new mistakes, as we will with the rest of this life too. Thanks for the different perspective!

    Hi Acharya, you're the first. Yes, those times back then were a lot different and I think the nowadays young people missed out.

    Hi Wetnose, thanks for the great answer. I wouldn't want to go back to this time being young either. What we went through is how we became the person we are today. Don't change my friend! Hugs.

    Hi Stachart, great answer! Yes, hopefully we all learned from our past, and I wouldn't want to make new and different mistakes all over again.
