Does anyone ever think about their past?

maybe wishing you can go back in time and fix stuff with your girl friend? maybe even make her or him your wife or husband?

I think about the past, but I wouldn't change it, because my past defines who I am as a person, without the past that I experienced, the person I am at this moment would not exist.

I do this all the time. I've done many bad things in the past and I've hurt many people. People also hurt me. I've made some mistakes with a friend of mine and we used to have a good friendship. Now we don't.

Trust me, your better off. Girls have a way of getting in your head and making you think you wish you would have married her. Its just a tactic for girls to save face, you did exactly what you did FOR GOOD REASON and her manipulating your mind to think it was not for good reason is just an act. Its a mask she's wearing to fool you. You are wa better off without her, you would have been miserable married to her.

Infidel - that was a dose of reality I don't often see. I'm a little ambivalent about your answer - but I like the authoritative approach...;-)

No not much... Most of my past brings sad memories. My present is happier.
I couldn't change the people that made it sad.

I think about it but don't dwell on it. There is many things I would love to change. But then again these things made me who I am, and I finally like me. We need to learn from mistakes and grow. If you dwell on the past you are destroying your future. There could be missed opportunities right in front of you.

Because we haven't invented time travel (yet) - probably the best way to look at a past romance that went wrong - is to learn from the experience - to help you make better choices in future relationships. I know it doesn't do much for the pain (which feels like "grief") - but that pain can be used to educate yourself for what's ahead.

I'm pretty sure everyone thinks about their past. That's normal. But don't dwell on your past. Of course there are some things that I would like to change. But one thing (even if it's tiny) that occurred in the past effects a chain of events. So basically, even if I could go back in time and change some things, I wouldn't. If I did, that would change a lot of things, including some of the good things. Besides, what we go through in life (good and bad), among other things, shape us and make us who we are today.
"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present."
You might not be able to go back in time to fix your mistakes, but you still have today. It might not be too late to make things better. And of course, you can always learn from your mistakes.

A lot of people ask themselves "what if?" However, when you look back at certain things in your life retro think about the lessons you've learned and what mistakes you can prevent from making again. There is no point to dwell on the past as it won't solve anything. The Bible has multiple accounts of different situations that all of us can learn from. Romans 15:4 states: "For all the things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction, that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope". Read God's word daily and this can help you in our own life.

I do... Every day I relive my past. I grew up in a very rough town, and had an extremely rough childhood. There isn't a day when I don't think about it. I have seen things most people have only seen in movies. There isn't a day that goes by, when I haven't thought about it. I try not to dwell on it though.
