I hated high school. Hated it. We have already established exactly how shy I was. It consumed me. I was involved in activities, but didn’t venture out much – didn’t ever position myself outside of my comfort zone. I had some good friends. I have some good memories, but I WOULD NEVER DO THOSE YEARS OVER AGAIN.
In fact, When I really think about it, I am certain there are not many parts of my life I ever want to see again. Part of this is due to the shitty up-bringing I had. But a huge part of this is that I love my life now. If I were to change one thing in the past, would it alter the outcome, making my life now, different somehow? I wouldn’t want to risk that. I wouldn’t want to risk not marrying Todd. I wouldn’t want to risk not having my 4 kids. I wouldn’t want to lose the few close friends and family that I have.
How about you? Would you take a do-over? If so, what would you do differently?
