I think we have all said something similar to ourselves...if we could go back in time...what would we change about our lives or what would we tell ourselves about what we've learned.
I think too that we say this as a way of saying we would do it to avoid the hurt and the pain we've experienced in our lives...that the things we would tell ourselves would help us to avoid everything we went through that we wish we hadn't.
The struggles we face in life will knock us down at times...we already know this...but they also teach us things that help to develop our strength, our character, our personalities and so much more...our struggles help us to learn what we want and don't want in our lives...our struggles teach us if we're open to learning the lessons no matter how painful they may be.
So the next time you wish you could turn back time to change the hurt you've felt...think about how much you've learned because of it...remember all the ways you've grown because of what you've survived. Without these life experiences...you wouldn't be who you are today. Don't change what you've been through...celebrate it! because it made you the person you are today and that is a grand thing!
take good care of you and celebrate all that you are..all that you've survived and be proud of you! there isn't another YOU like YOU.
