If we get a chance to start life again from childhood,will we be better or worse?
It would probably be the same unless we knew we were living it again and remembered the lessons
Very well said, but we often repeat our mistakes in life, without learning the lessons.Isn't it ?
This is true with some people but as far as some are concerned learning our lessons depends on the consequences. I've learned to change my actions at times due to harsh consequences
I am not sure one can really define the outcome of better or worse.
The only thing that may be beneficial to starting childhood again is knowing what we didnt know then that we know now. We may even have ideas now to fix the world. However once again, we were given the tools to fix the world and instead we destroyed it. There are many young ones that are able to get their message across and do good, but it seems as adults we listen only but do not act.
We may be able to change our paths. However no matter what we plan its the Lords plans that prevail. He brings us to our destinies.
So with all that said, in my opinion, I believe it would be worse to start again, knowing what we as adults know now, its in our best interest to help those that are learning and experiencing the world as they grow and to teach them what they could do to help. Being a child again would only in my opinion confuse our minds.
This is a very difficult question. I'm assuming you mean a completely new start, with which we would not begin with all we have learned and experienced heretofore. In that case, I think it is a literal coin toss. For me, as of this moment, hitting the reset button sounds mighty attractive. On the other hand, there are some gifts, and dare I say potential, that I would not wish to gamble losing. It is a really tough call and good question!
Being as life is a learning experience, knowledge is something that is gained over time, so starting over makes no difference, because we wouldn't have the knowledge we gained.
In my case I will do better and try to avoid all mistakes I had committed earlier. I will be thankful to God and surely lead a more better life on my second term.
I would love to be able to have 'another go at life' knowing what I do now through the mistakes I have learnt. If I had to go back and live life again knowing nothing, then i'd pass. Growing up isn't easy and all you can do with the pain and hurt you suffered is put it down to experience. I'm happier now (more cynical definitely) but more comfortable in my own skin.
It's a very interesting question. I think if I am given a chance I will surely do my best. There were many bad incidents in my life that happened due to my carelessness. So if I get a chance I would be rather careful not to repeat those mistakes.
I think it would be the same with almost all people. We all may think that it would be a better one. But don't know what would happen because these are all simply imaginations.
All depends on whether we will remember the "first" life, and all the lessons we learned from having grown to be an adult already.
To me, I don't think it's fair to use the knowledge and wisdom that we have acquired over the years to paste them onto our childhood days and then set our life on a different course. As it is, we are still on the learning path and there's no end in sight, as far as learning is concerned.
Having said that, it would be interesting to imagine what our life could have been, had we had the benefit of hindsight. I would probably have invested all my money in blue chips during the mid-1980s recession and sold them, just prior to the Asian Financial Crisis, LOL.
I will enjoy my life from scratch . Things which i couldn't do in my childhood will try those things . It will be better because of technology and surroundings.
You have a positive attitude.The people talk about mistakes and the lessons learnt thereof.But life is just to live fully and completely.We will always remain imperfect.
Our forefathers thought that, they were right.All superstitions are the ruins of old truths.The truth itself is not perfect, but relative; then how the life, being a part of that grand and eternal truth, is supposed to be perfect.The mankind is still discovering the truth, in its pursuit of perfection.Your answer is the best.
If I am so fortunate to get this chance, I'll celebrate the spirit of life and try to learn new things from my new mistakes and implement it in my new life.

Is the world better or worse off with religion?I am agnostic and believe that everybody has a right to believe whatever they want. But I tend to think that, on the whole, religion brings more negative things into the world than positive. One of the biggest negatives is that it divides...
