    Yes i will.
    There is nothing wrong to correct your mistake,you are doing because you are repending.
    so go ahead. that i will say.

    there are a few mistakes in my life I would like to correct but then again those mistakes have made me who I am today. It would would be a bit bad to take away a few of those learning experiences.

    I've thought about this before.  I would absolutely go back *IF* I could go back knowing what I know now.  Otherwise, I'm sure I would make the same mistakes!

    Yes. I would change the business shirt I bought last week. It is wrong in so many ways. And I lost the receipt!

    Part of me would love to go back and change something that I did, but I know when you change even one thing about your life (good or bad) it has an unpredictable rippling effect. I also know it was a tough and embarrassing lesson, but I'm actually better because of the experience.

    Absolutely!  I'm still paying for mistakes I made in my teens.

    I would go back in a heartbeat. Not for me though, but for the person I hurt so badly. I would go back and change the things I did that hurt them so horribly. I wouldn't care if it changed my life, or took something away from my future, as long as I could undo the hurt I did, as long as I could take away the pain that person lives with now because of me.

    I've actually put a lot of thought into this question, and though it would be nice to go back and change horrible things, these events are what make us who we are. Who knows if I'd be writing if I went back and changed things that I've done, and who knows how I'd be affected if someone else did. It's a ripple effect, and it's best not to mess with it.

    Yes, definitely, yes. I really messed my kids life up and I would love to have a do over.

    No, I would not. Otherwise, I would be changing the course of things. Those things happened because they were meant to happen and because I had something to learn from those things and made me the person I am now.. a better person, I could only hope.

    no i would not go back, we are who we are today because of the good and bad things we have done in the past and at the end of the day i believe that the past is just that and should stay in the past.

    No I wouldn't. All I have done, good or bad, helped me get to this place in life. To go back and change anything would put me in a place i might not want to be. I am content with the choices I've made and can only promise myself to make life better from where I sit now.
