If you could travel back in time and undo something/change something/do something differently in your life, what would it be?

For me it would be taking a different route so I wouldn’t have gotten in a bad car accident a month ago.

I would arrive 5 mins early to a meeting with an old, slightly kooky friend and stop him from being murdered by Libyan terrorists.

morphy has a tendensy to just make stuff up - so this one ?
dunno 50:50 maybe lol

And I'll go with jack on the take a different route to avoid an rta.

Also can I go back 2 weeks and undo the mistake I made not picking the right numbers on the 189 million pound euro lottery.
And instead pick the right numbers Smiley

He didn’t make that up, it’s from the movie “Back to the Future”
Picking the right numbers on the lottery is a good one too.

One of the best 80s and maybe one of the best movies in general ever made.

The third one is my favorite. I'd rather have the time travelling flying train than the time travelling car.

I love the third one as well but I think we are in the minority.

Real answer to this question...

I would go back in time and let my younger self know what was causing the majority of my depression and how to fix it. My life would be drastically different.

I wouldn't change anything. I'm (mostly) healthy, married to the love of my life, have completed a degree in nursing and, after lots of anguish, know myself. I wouldn't be who I am without all the mistakes and problems and wrong turns. To change my past would be to change me now and, although I'm not perfect by a long way, I am content in being myself.

There's maybe three points in my life I'd like to have made a different decision.

There are most likely thousands where I should have done something different.

But probably only three that could have made a significant difference, not necessarily better or worse, just different.
Or maybe not. I'll never know.

What keeps me going is the belief that in a quantum universe all the decisions I did not make were made by a slightly different me.

And if I could give the younger me a single piece of advice it would be.
Buy Microsoft stock as soon as you can.
As much as you can.

I believe a single share bought at the original floatation, would by now have made me a multi millionaire.

Likewise Amazon shares.

Apple would be similar, but you must have some standards and I'm not greedy. Smiley
