    i wish to change nothing i believe that everything happens for a reason because if something in my past was to change then i wouldn't be who i am today and i wouldn't be where i am today EVERYTHING would be different...

    Nothing. I am proud of who I am. I have lost many but on the other hand I have gained many. So, I would change nothing.

    A lot of things, but the skill of learning from negative experiences is something that I wouldn't change for the world. That then makes your future happier (as my present is),

    Only one thing?  But that would alter my entire life wouldn't it?  I think it was dumb selling my first building I was part owner of.  I would be well off now if I had kept it... but then my life would be different in so many other ways.  I wouldn't have run off to England and missed all that adventure and the many that followed.

    I try not to regret anything but there are lots of things I wish I had done differently... in hindsight.

    I regret not having a relationship with my daughter but she must live with her decisions as do I. Other than that, I'm happy with the way things turned out and do not dwell on the past for I can not change it.

    Letting people in on my problems. It gave them a reason to look down on me rather than give me the advice I needed.

    I would have stayed on at High School and gone onto University instead of jumping into full-time work at 16

    It's like in Back to the Future. If I changed something in my past, would I be here now answering this question? Who knows if I had done anything differently prior to right now, I would even be alive today. Did a simple delay from a phone call prevent a car accident that could have happened? I am happy with life as it has happened and wouldn't change a thing. Don't harp on the past that cannot be changed anyway. Look to the future and how you can make your life even better!

    Counterfactual thinking is a waste of time.

    I think I would like to change the way I eat when I was young. If it weren't for the many chocolate cakes I have eaten, It would have been easier for me to lose weight.
