The person that I am today is not the same as the one from a few years ago. I often wish that I could turn back time to rewrite my personal histories. Knowing what I am capable of nowadays makes this particular desire of mine even stronger.
I wonder how different my life would have turned out to be like had my younger self been equipped with the same kind of knowledge and skills as I am today? The truth of matter is that I will never find out what my life would have been like had I been a different person in my younger years, because no amount of technological advancement can truly grant me the opportunity to relive what is lived and has expired.
Should I dwell on what has come to pass? Or, should I be grateful for all the lessons and life experiences that my past has imprinted in me? Without having to go through those trying times, I would not have been strong enough to go through the ones of today. Without having to deal with those past trial and tribulation, I would have never taken the extra steps to face up to my fears, while simultaneously being made into a tough cookie in the process.
Although my past wasn’t gloriously rosy; however, it was mine. I can never change it.
