Smarts

Would you start over?

Recommended Posts

I have made many mistakes and have many regrets in my life, but of course not. I still wish I never existed.

Oh yeah, absolutely. My life is like a playthrough of an RPG. I have no idea how to spend my time, what skills I'll need further down the road, etc., so I just made a big mess of everything.

Now I'm 20, filled with regret, and I'd love to rewind and try again. Maybe not all the way back... maybe to when I was 15 or something. There's so much more I'd get right.

But that's wishful thinking, so. :v

I'd rather just die, but if I'm given that chance than hell yeah.

I wouldn't. Mistakes are a part of life, and you have to be able to learn to live with your mistakes along with the consequences. It's your mistakes that make you who you are, it's your imperfections, poor choices and experiences that build your character. To go back in time and re-write everything would just make you into a completely different person, and in my opinion, it's a very cowardly thing to do.

If I was able to start things over again with the info I know about myself now?  Yeah, I'd start over again.

I would start over just to make it up in high school and college. Meet my fiancee sooner and do things differently when I can make a difference.

Nah, tbh I'm happy with how my life has played out so far, I wouldn't wanna go back and start all over. :laugh:

If it actually resulted in me being someone different than what I am now, then probably. That or the whole 'erase from history' thing wouldn't be too bad of an idea either.

I probably would happily. I would have taken the guaranteed acceptance to UTSA (the University of Texas campus in San Antonio), and maybe I could do something with my life. 

 

Though having a different dad would have also been helpful.

I'm pretty happy with the way things turned out while growing up; so no, I wouldn't start over.

There were a lot of bumps and things that didn't go well, but definitely not enough for me to feel regretful.

My life is not pretty, but I wouldn't restart it....

I would start over but not starting at childhood. I would probably start at when I was a teenager because I made a lot of mistakes that I wish I could take back.

While I regret and despise various aspects of my life, I've come too far to simply throw all that effort away.

Well, that depends. Would I still have all my memories? If so, then yes. If not, then no.

Honestly I wouldn't, because even though I made mistakes that I wish I could change, those same mistakes still led me on paths that I didn't expect and that actually made my life better.

Oh, good Celestia, no.  I don't want to do this sh*t over again, ever.  In fact, that's my greatest fear about death--that I'll somehow have to live again.  I'm not afraid of nothingness--there's no reason to be.  I'm afraid of enduring more consciousness.  I don't believe in an afterlife or reincarnation or anything like that, and all evidence just points to the lights going out forever, but I still have these wondering about why I'm me at this moment.  Like, why did I end up being conscious in this body and not some other body?  Why am I me and not you?  The religious have an easy out for this question that precludes them from any further analysis--god gave you a soul and put it in this body because he has a plan for you.  Case closed.  Well, I don't accept that answer without evidence.  However, that doesn't mean that it still isn't mysterious why I'm me and not you.  It's a weird thing that I've never been able to quite wrap my head around.  Part of me still has this doubt that perhaps after I die, I will find myself being born again at some point, perhaps hundreds, perhaps thousand of years from now, and I'll have to live again.  But of course, I'd have no memory of this life, which means I wouldn't care, and I wouldn't feel annoyed at having to go through this drudgery again.  And if that's how it works, then that means that in all likelihood, this isn't the first time I've done this.  Maybe this is my one millionth trip around, but I just don't know it.  But with no memories carried over, and a completely different body, it's not like you could say that it's still me every time, right?  So then this idea makes no sense.  That's why I usually just stop worrying about it.  But I just don't want consciousness in any form ever again.  I want one trip around, and then I want off of this ride forever.  I'm sure that's how it works--that's where all the evidence points.  After all, once the physical body ceases to function, there's simply nothing in there can float up into some other dimension or something, and enter some other body.  But still, I just keep coming back to that question--why is my conscious experience in this body and not that body?  Why am I me and not you?  It's weird, right?

My thoughts exactly. Given the first 12 years of my life (and a good while after) weren't exactly the happiest, I wouldn't want to go through it all over again, unless I'm able to choose what factors to change.
