If you had a chance to start your life over, would you?

If I was able to start my life over from the beginning I would do a lot of things differently. I have made a great many mistakes, though I have learned from them, which I am not proud of and some are unforgivable. So if I was given the opportunity to start life anew, I think I would take that offer up.

what an interesting issue is!

If i had a chance to start my life over, i would do whatever i want. I always followed my parents' instruction. I raised in good family. However, i think i did not do what i really want to do. I hope to travel all around the world by myself without any support. Also, i would like to write own my essay that i experience while travelling. Even though i face with an unexpected situation, i can stand for it by undergoing every moment. I believe that i can be more independant as i decide what to do.

"I never regret anything that I've done in my life because it's made me the person that I am today and that is surely something to be proud of"

Right, well I would definitely take up this opportunity. The quote above is the complete opposite to my way of viewing things. No matter how much stronger you've become or how much you've learnt you always kinda wonder how you could have done things different and what the outcome will be. On most occasions.. The outcome you think up in your head is a thousand times better than what really happened.. Sadly though we didn't think about it before we did it. But I would start life over for the chance to be a better person. But there'd have to be a deal for me ;) I can start life over but carry all the knowledge I've gained through my years of mistakes.. I think that's a pretty decent deal :)

i would have to say yes. so many things i regret, from things i have said to things i have done, to people i have been associated with. my judgement isnt always great, as dawolfman already knows.

I shake my head in disbelief at my stupidity and I blush at my mistakes. I wish I had a second chance with the knowledge I have acquired about myself.

if i had the chance to start life over i would i would start it over in a heart beat and there are reasons but who wants to go through the heart ache and pain you go through in the first life i want to go back to the beginning and go through elementary school and middle school and high school without all the hurt i experienced i want to forget the boys who came and broke me just recently i had a guy metaphorically rip me in two and destroy what little self esteem i had left i cried so much and the truth is i love him and i don't want to so i would start life over if it meant saving the girl i used to be from total depression

True to fact, it depend on what there is to offer if you start your life over again. Will you actually be allowed to keep the memories of your previous life and start a new life? I really doubt so...

So say if we don't exactly have past memories, isn't it only theoretical that your new life will also be taking the similar road of your previous one? After-all, that nothing to change it.

Even if we are allowed to store our previous life's memories, are you sure you want? You will only live a life of avoiding mistake you have made previously, and move on to actually change the purpose of 'living'(Are you sure that a life if it the case?) Similarly, no one promise you would not make a mistake even with a new lease of life, sadly that it.

Why bother? It a life you are given, live and let live.

God bless the discombobulated one.

Every single choice you make in life effects something else that is going to happen in your life, if I had a chance to go back and start over and maybe take back some of the mistakes I have made my life probably wouldn't be the same it is right now. It might be worse it might be better but every mistake in life teaches you a lesson about who you are and if you went back and made sure that you didn't make any mistakes, what kind of lessons would that teach you?

Side: No

Each and every choice you make effects you for the rest of your life. It may be minor, but its effects are still there.

If I had made just one different choice, no matter how mild the alteration, I could be completely different. Just think, had I not had a debate with my relative about the death of Princess Diana I never would have been looking for conspiracy theories about her death. The search of which topic led me to CreateDebate. Without CreateDebate I'd have never discovered Essembly and I'd probably be off somewhere still engulfed in my studies of Ancient Roman history rather than writing this pointless argument...

Side: No

Fate or destiny, there only seems to be one life path, and it is difficult to see a different life. If I could, sure there would be a few things that I would change.

There are somethings i would love to take back, but my dad's been through hell just to get me were i am now. I couldn't do that to him again, he's already turning grey. Next step he'll loose his hair

Side: No but take stuff back

Fuck fate or destiny. I like who I am, and where I am in my life and what I'm doing with it. If I did it all again who is to say I'd make better choices?

You have to have a shitty life to want any other life but yours, and I don't.

Side: No

Are you freaking crazy? I'm waiting for this life to end ;)

Side: No
