Do you ever wonder what life might be like if things had happened differently?

I've been thinking a lot about this recently, just like how things might have been now if you didn't meet somebody one day, or if things were different causing everything else to drastically change... so I just wonder
You!

    The thought crosses my mind every now and then, but it isn't something I spend a lot of time on. What's done is done. You can only change the future - you're stuck with the past.

    you can, but it's pretty much pointless.

    which isn't a good point at all.

    obviously u took it the wrong way, u asked this dumb question and i answer it and i meant that LIFE MAY BE KIND OF AWKWARD IF IT HAPPENED A DIFFERENT WAY. there u have it. sorry i wasnt be too specific with my answer.

    obviously you didn't read the question correctly, it's not asking how life would be if it happened differently, but it's asking if you ever though about what it'd be like differently.. ya understand now or do i have to repeat myself.

    i try not to because i cant change the past. i believe that things happen for a reason and all i can do is try not to repeat the same mistakes. the butterfly effect

    Of course I do!! If I'd been born without this metabolic condition that's giving me all this hassle now - life would've been totally and utterly different in a good way!

    Sure. I think many do. My life would have been very different if I kept on a path I was on. Not to say it would have been better. I think though I have made some poor choices in the past, I make better choices now from my mistakes. I'm pretty darn happy now because of it.

    No, cannot dwell on that. It is what it is! Kinda like thinking in fairy tale mode. I don't go there. If only,... I shoulda' coulda' is not an attitude that resembles reality to me.

    Are you saying, if I woulda' married that girl/guy or taken that other job, or finished that project etc...? We have free will and we are what we are, like or dislike.

    If only my parents were rich or famous on and on will just make you nuts. Fairy tales!

    Every once in awhile....when I wasn't so busy and had time on my hands I would think of what could have been....but it's a pretty good waste of time...Roll on, adapt and overcome.....keep rolling forward...woulda, shoulda, coulda, doesn't lead anywhere..

    I wonder that every day. Especially when I see my nephews and nieces. I look at them and think back,if this this,this and this didn't happen,would have they been born?

    Every day. The could have ,should have, would have's are enough to drive a person crazy. You just got to keep on keeping on. If you are sad and miserable with the way things are, move on, and chance things. That's all you can do. Live and learn. And what ever you do,,, NEVER SETTLE.

    Actually, I try not to. If things were different, they'd be different. It just makes a person crazy thinking that sort of thing. Or at least it makes me crazy. Too many bad choices.

    Yes, I think about this " what if " thing often lately. I often wonder what my life
    would be like today if I hadn't met my boyfriend a few years back... who I would be with
    today instead. It's like going through sliding doors in life. If I would have went through another door in life ...how different the whole picture could have been considering the decisions I made and how timing works for or against us. Timing is everything in life.

    same here.. it all just seems so impossible for things to be different, but as you said timing really is everything(:

    Timing really is everything but I think our decisions work in tandem with time, place and situations at hand. Thanks Nikki ~ great question indeed ! ;)
