    I wouldnt say that my life has been hard, but it has been very complicated. If I had it to do all over again I probably would have not got knocked up my senior year in highschool. I put my college education on hold because of that and then never went. I then went and got married at an early age and now look at me I am 29 and divorced already and on top of that have a second child. None of my dreams have fell thru for me and I am so unsatisfied because of that. I know exactly how you feel because everyday I wish that I could turn back the hands on the clock and change so many things that went sour in my life.

    All the time I wish I could start over. But I wish I could do it knowing everything I know now. I would try harder in school and do some things differently. I only have three more years until college and it's hard to think I can never go back and enjoy the earlier years and the days when nothing was bad in the world and everyday was fun with no worries. I'm not saying I don't like my life because I love it and love school but it would always be nice to redo our mistakes. But then again, we wouldn't be the same if we didn't ever make them. Hopefully this new year will be a fresh start in my life.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    I would definitely stay in school and take running start (early college) and I could have been in a university by now. I regret although I learned some of lifes lessons but I STILL regret meeting a girl in high school who I still bare a scar from and the scar isn't planning to leaving anytime soon. I just wish I started my life over again starting at about age 15. I just wish =(

    Yes and no. I've made many mistakes and there is one especially I would love to just hit "rewind" and fix, but I also believe that if I go back & fix that problem, something or someone important in my life now would be equally affected. Maybe my 17-year-old daughter wouldn't be around; maybe I wouldn't be around. I think we all say "if I knew then what I know now" but (as for yet another cliche)...hindsight is always 20-20.

    Happy New Year everyone!

    Yes, my life has been hard. Harder than a lot of people know. But, oddly enough, I wouldn't change a thing. The bad times that I have been through have taught me so many things. They have taught me what not to do next time, as well as the fact that no matter what comes up ~ I can handle it. It has shaped my personality, and made me who I am today. I have gained a lot of respect, not just for myself, but others now respect me for who I am and how I handled my troubles. No, I definitely wouldn't change a thing.

    Honestly.... I have a great life but it hasn't been void of personal disasters! It is my belief that it is the "sum" of our entire experiences that make us who we are. Be happy with how you turned out! If not, don't worry about the past, as it is what is is, make small changes each day of your life starting now and you just might be surprised about your future. Remember it's never too late to begin anew so don't look back - keep your eyes and your heart focused on today. Good luck!

    I would not want to do it again. Some painful things have happened in my life but not always because of decisions I made. So I would hate to go back through any previous heartbreak. I will just deal with life day by day.

    All the time. I wish I could do everything in my life differently. It seems as if I've made nothing but mistakes in my life.

    I am what I wanted to be when I was younger. I went the long way around, but I got here. I would have been more careful on my 17th birthday, when I got pregnant with my first child. And, I would have made the father of that child way more miserable-I was way too nice!
