If You Knew Then What You Know Now?
Very interesting points, but you raise something tricky. Because you would actually know then what you know now, by changing your decision in the past wouldn't actually rob you of your experience that made you who are you today because you would still KNOW it back then. Does that make sense?
So you would still retain the life lessons you gained but now going back, you'd be able to make life a lot more pleasant or successful while retaining the lessons/experiences of the first time around.
My life still wouldn't be what it is now though. For all I know, knowing what I know now could have completely changed the course of my life. I may have thought that the other choice I could have chosen would have been better, when in reality the one I picked was actually the better option. I only know the one outcome still, knowing what I know.
Some things I would do/change:
-I would have been a lot less shy and timid around girls. There was no reason why not to talk to or pursue any girl I liked back then for fear of things that weren't really real...of course I didn't know that back then but I know it now.
-I would have pursued skills and training in any of: website, internet marketing (IM), computer programming/apps, audio/video content creation, or just music!
-I would have liked to take things a lot less seriously and not be such an emotional rollercoaster.....we stress about a lot of things that don't ever really matter in the long-run so I wish I didn't waste so much energy and time stressing over those petty things lol
