Do you think about it?

Your past.  Past boyfriends, past mistakes, past friends. 

Do you think anything would be different if you went back and changed one little thing? 

Do you want anything to change?

I think about my past sometimes.  I think how lucky I am that things didn't go as bad as they could have with some of the stupid things I did.  I think how lucky I am for having had the experiences I had.  I think how lucky I am that I got out of a bad marriage and went on to marry the most wonderful man.

I wouldn't change a thing from my past, though.  Every step I have made, every mistake I made led me to where I am now.

Sometimes. Its good to remember where you came from and what you went through to get where you are. It helps to recreate past successes as well as avoid past mistakes. 

I do believe changing one little thing could have a snowball effect that would change where I currently am, and I would not want that changed.

I do often. Since I had a child at 18, I have frequently wondered what life would have been like if I was more responsible back then. I am so happy with my life and so in love with my family, but it has been a long, hard road with more steps ahead of us. I would never encourage someone to be as willfully ignorant about life as I was.

Quoting mickstinator:

 well said! I was 19 when I had dd. I got married right away, and was divorced by 22. I have had bad relationships ever since then. I do wish I hadn't wasted time with losers because maybe I would have someone special right now, but otherwise life is pretty good.

All the time. But I wouldn't change anything. Everything happens for a reason. :)

I think about the past from time to time, but I wouldn't change anything.  The journey has made me who I am, and I love where it has taken me.

I think about it from time to time, but never dwell on it.  It's all got me to where I am.  I believe in reflecting on it and absorbing it and learning from it and then letting it go so that the past does not control my future.

YES!  There is one "what if" and I do think of him.  He is a friend now but never really gave us a chance to have more than a friendship because we lived too far away.  I wished I did at least try for a year. 

I also think that had I broke up with my boyfriend that I had in high school and college (i was with him for 6 years), I probably would have had that relationships with guy above since we were attending the same school at the time.

yeah , mainly my children's fathers.....I would change some things...but mainly take heed to all the warning signs! Could have seved myself some of the heartbreak.  I dont have regrets about breaking it off...I do have regrets that I didnt leave sooner though lol...time wasted....I dont have a desire to get back with either of them.  They are still who they are. So over it..lord knows.

From time to time I think about exs and thank god they are exs! Lol. I do think about past friends and wish I could've kept in better contact. I miss having my friends around.
