    If you were given a chance to live another life, would you chose to live your present life again?

      pamela I have to agree with you I would not want to live this life over to many bad things have happened and not enough good things not worth all the pain any more and their just not getting any better ive tried to do different things not happening.

    I'd say that depends on the circumstances.. But yes, I am content and it'd feel pleasant to live it again but like I said, that still depends!

    Even though life can be hard at time, no matter who's life you have, it will have its own set of problems. I am very happy with my life despite hard times. I know that the best is ahead of me, and I would live it over again.

    I have a love hate relationship with that question.  Knowing what I know about the past as well as the present I don't think I would have much of a choice in the matter. I chose the life that I have because I new of the necessity in my ability to affect those who I now effect in the way that they need to be affected. Since I wouldn't have any more knowledge after the birth of my previous decision as I know now, however the life I have now would probably repeat itself because I cant really change my nature, only my response to that which I am conscious of.

    What a fabulous question!  Hind sight is 20/20.  IF, and only IF I got to keep the knowledge of what I've learned through poor choices, I would live this life again, make better, more disciplined choices, just to see the difference.

      on 1 hand I might if I could retain what ive learned and make better choices but when I think about it I'm not really sure the 1 good thing ive managed to do is my son but he means so much to so many that's the 1 thing I would not change love my boy.

    It IS an excellent question and I am very tempted to say NO except for the valuable lessons I would have to re-learned. It took 42 long years and painfully slow learning to be who I am today. I am really glad I've made it this far, and without my life exactly the way it was, I would not have mastered all these valuable aspects of strength and wisdom that I can finally claim to be my own. Phew.

    So I guess I would have to politely decline the offer of a "different life", tempting as it is. Everything happens in our life for very good reasons, it has taken me a long time but I can finally see the perfection. 

    Blessed Be xo

    Well, with some qualifications! I would like some more apparent talents added to my inventory.

    Near enough. Hindsight would help ease my way through a few little hiccups.

    I believe in reincarnation and karma.  I would never wwant to ive this life again, it would mean I did not imprve my karma.  I have to progress as a spiritual entity.  I seek the spiritual world where there is eternal bliss, knowledge, and peace of being.

    I hope you make it there.

    Well if I get a chance to live another life then I do not want to live the same life again. Because for me Life is not bed of roses.

    Well, Good Guy, I am through when I finish with this life. It is appointed for man to die once and that is good enough for me.

    No regrets. I've had (and am having) a great time. But why would I want it to be the same if I had it over again? There'd be an infinite variety of possible lives to live.
