    Like the girl who, at out 20th reunion, told me she had a crush on me in HS.

    Or the opening at my dream job that was being held for ME, but I figured I had no shot at…

    Not interested. Don’t want to take the time or trouble to live it again.

    I would only do that with the benefit of hindsight being allowed (and a hard drive with a copy of all the things I that will help me accomplish that)

    Not possible. Make one significant change, and the rest of your life would be so different that none of the other regretted events would happen. Then you’d continue to make mistakes, only they’d be completely different.

    Be thankful for what you have and not for what you don’t have…

    I would not change a thing. Scars and all, it’s made me who I am today, and I like who I am today.

    If I could take back anything, it would be those times when I was less charitable to people than I could have been. Since I can’t do that I’ll make up for it going forward.

    We all have things we wish we had said or done. That doesn’t mean that our lives would have been better if we HAD said or done them, though it MIGHT have been different.

    One of my favorite books a few decades ago was “Door Into Summer”, Robert Heinlein. It is about time travel (but not part of his Lazarus Long works) and the complexities involved (how you go back in time to correct a wrong and then how to correct the present to bring about the right future). Another memory is watching (many, many times) “The Last Unicorn” with my kids where the ‘Unicorn’ explains that humans are the only creatures that can feel regret. Possibly because we are the only creatures that do things to regret.

    Not sure I’d still be around if I’d said or done some things I thought about saying, or doing.

    So, my being constantly watched feeling was not paranoia after all?

    There is a Drabble strip..Norman walking and suddenly thinks “ Liar, liar, pants on fire”. Then he thinks:” THAT is what I should have said to that kid in third grade…I usually have a snappy comeback if given enough time”.

    We will all have an exit interview at the end of this life. Make sure you do good, it’s the only review that matters!
