Depends on a few things. Would I remember everything that occurred those years I'm choosing to reverse? If not, I'm not sure much would change for me. I would still make most of the same decisions as I do not really remember making too many terrible choices.

Yes, I would reverse it. The main change I would have made would have been to join the military immediately following high school. That's really the only big change I'd make.

Many things I would change if i knew....one, i definitely had a bad relationship around age 19-22 that I am sure I would not have nearly killed myself over, not literally but in terms of running around state to state trying to keep up with this chick.
The whole time she was sexing another guy...
Worst thing was that she was telling me stories of this "friend" that she had who was in a torn relationship with this "guy from the military" and a boxer...wow!
When I finally found out the military guy was supposed to be me and the boxer was this bodybuilder guy from atlanta, in the stories, and I thought back about what she had been telling me for the past 16 months, I nearly went insane.
Imagine the love of your life telling you all these things about some friend and two other guys and finding out the whole time she was talking about you, herself, and the guy she was cheating with.....imagine the shyyyyt that she told me. Then when I thought about the damn advice I was giving her to tell her friend and finally realizing I was giving her advice about what to do concerning ME, her, and her cheat mate!!
I lost 5 years of my life due to depression after that debacle. I didn't break out of that slump until around 26. From 19 to 26, most of those "GREAT" times that everyone lived, I lived stuck in a room...

It's always odd to realize how much taking a left vs taking a right turn can change the course of what is to come ....

I made a ton of stupid decisions and if I could go back do it all over again I'd do it all over the same way cause i had a blast at the time

Essentially, what you thought was a horrible mistake at the time, like for example smashing the bumper of mom's car into a tree the first time you tried to drive, may have actually saved your mom's life cause she couldn't drive the car while it was in the shop and thus she never got hit by that truck.
I mean I'm creating an insane example but you get the point. You could go back and change some "mistake" you made only to realize that something more tragic happened because you didn't make that mistake. Don't live in the past. Mistakes are part of life. You got to just move forward.

Ya I wish I could start back say 7th grade. Hell maybe even before that and just completely move away from this town and completely change the WHOLE course of my life completely.

1) Would've paid all those parking tickets.
2) Wouldn't have thrown my shoe at that judge.
3) Wouldn't have told my 6'4" cell mate he was a wuss.
That got out of hand fast.
Just being humorous,.. sorry!

Never. I have no regrets. It's impossible to know what my life would be like now if I had made a different choice in a past situation, no matter how ****ty that decision made my life at the time. In the long run, changing something could have lead to a worse life or even my own death. All I know is that I'm doing pretty well right now, so why wish things to be different? It's the "butterfly effect" as CrazyChemist said.

1. would have gotten the vasectomy earlier. long story.
2. would have married my high school/first year of college sweetheart.
the only woman I have met who got 'me' and was the temper to my blade.
3.would have actually focused in school and studied an area I actually enjoyed instead of getting degrees that got saturated in the job market a year or two after grad.
4. would have stayed out of the streets.

Would have whooped the living shat out of my best friend growing up the first time he ever tried drugs. It really makes me sad thinking about how things are for him now.
