No I won't. I believe everything happens for a reason...
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/26/03 - 5:35:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course I would.
If everything happens for a reason, why not sit still forever? If you die, you were meant to, right?

Gosh how can there be a worst? SO many bad things happened to me...ummm....but the worst thing that didn't have a positive effect on me in the long run AT ALL was when those jealous girls of high school posted pictures of me all around the school that said "this girl is a whore"....I think I'd like to take that back.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/26/03 - 5:51:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
ya sounds like something good to take back Artic...kids can be soooo mean! I would take back the fact that my grandma was "put to sleep" in a hospital.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/26/03 - 6:25:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, everyone has terrible things happen to them...that's just one less for me to have. it's over and done with, so there's no point in revoking it...it would just bring about another emotional fiasco...ich.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/26/03 - 6:27:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it happened for a reason too... but I would still change the outcome..because I had a choice
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/26/03 - 10:09:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I think I would change the worst thing, I would be much happier if it didn't happen.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/26/03 - 10:31:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, i learned a lot from it

I was beaten and raped for a year at the sitter's house when I was 8 and 9. I'd like that to not have happened...

...but then I wonder - the reprecutions from that experience changed my entire life. It took me decades to overcome, and influenced how I acted, what I majored in in college, who I married.

If that hadn't happened, I'd be someone entirely differnt than who I am now...would I want to be someone different? Would I like that different person?

It's a difficult question.

18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/26/03 - 10:42:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
hmmmmm probably not, nothing really serious has ever happened--maybe falling of a ledge or something.

I'll keep all those things in my memory to make sure they don't happen again.

That's a pretty stupid question. Why wouldn't someone take it back? Especially like for me, I mean, the worst thing that ever happened was my dad got arrested. If I could take that back my dad would have a higher paying job and the familywouldn't be completely crazy.

I was pushed away from every single person in my class, and infact school, for about a year when i was 9, i had no friends and nobody to talk to or rely on than my mother. I gave up, ignored everything and everyone. i finaly was aproached by a new kid at the school, i became good friens with him and eventualy became friends with most of the guys in my class, being the only girl in the group that i sat in i was concidered even stranger than ever. I would never wish that this never happened, and would not take it back, it gives me an insight into the male mind that some girls will never get until they are mutch older, i have moved since then and find it much easier to make friends with males than females, but i am begining to get the conection with my female side back (lol) i now have a large group of friends, and easily fit in with most topics of conversation. it also unfortunatley, makes it very hard for me to trust anyone, but the benifits outweigh the disadvantages by far.

if i could have prevented my dad from dying so young , yes, i would have
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/29/03 - 2:05:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
I can't really think of one horrible thing that's happened to me.

It's more like a lot of smaller things... but not much smaller.

18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/29/03 - 11:45:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hmm... I want to say yes cause I 'learned' from it but then again I'm still not completely over it so.. I dunno.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/29/03 - 11:48:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know what the WORST thing is, because there have been quite a few really, really bad things. I'd take them back if I could, though. Some things you can never recover from.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/29/03 - 11:54:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes I would, because what happened to me has affected my life thus far and im positive it will affect me when Im older.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/29/03 - 3:18:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I would take it back. It may have made my look on life better but it has made me and my family miserable in the process.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/29/03 - 3:22:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh and LeananSiDhe you're lucky and I feel sorry for you in the future.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/29/03 - 3:28:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd like to believe that I've learned from all of the bad things that have happened to me and that they were all good for me. I've never had anything really bad, though, something like Wanderer or Pegasus. I think that if I did, I'd be plenty happy to take it back.

As far as things being the way that they were because they were meant to be? I don't think that anyone's life is quite that organized. Even if you do believe in predestination, I have doubts that every part of your life was meant to be exactly as it was. Some things are just chance. Good or bad, there's the luck of the draw.

Unless said event changed you in some way, it was likely not predetermined. Even if it did change you, it may have not changed you for the better...

Though I don't really believe in fate, I would have to say no. After you take away the worst thing, another worst thing takes its place, and then I'd want to erase that. And if I could all the bad things in my life, I really wouldn't have a life. If I can't compare my happy moments to the sad, they're that much less special and meaningful. So, no, I don't want to erase my life.

It's hard for me to choose a "worst thing" but if I pick when I was almost raped (thank God I wasn't) I would say yes, I wish I could take it back. I have suffered other emotional trauma with men and I think one less would be nice.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/4/04 - 2:23:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
uh, yeah, it sucked.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/4/04 - 2:26:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think everything happens for a reason, but I wouldn't take back the worst thing that ever happened to me. Well, to date at least. I'll come back to this question in about a month or two, and I can probably say yes, I would want to take back the worst thing that's ever happened to me, since little or no good will come out of it.

I would take back PARTS of the worst things that ever happened to me. The one that sticks out in my mind is having my grandfather die and not being there to tell him how much I loved and valued him. I was 13 at the time and had the attitude of a 13 year old. I didn't realize how much I appreciated him until he was gone. And I wish I could have told him how much he meant to me. It's been almost 10 years and I still think about it.
