If you had the opportunity to turn back the clock what would you change? I suppose to answer that question depends at what point in our life we’re asked and how we feel about our past.
If you asked me that same question 7 or 8 years ago, I would have had given you a different answer, but realistically I’m not sure that if any of us turned back the clocks things would change, or we’d be any more equipped to deal with our lives, so the outcomes would be the same. Without our past though, there is no understanding and without our understanding there are no possibilities for us to change things.
If I were to turn back the clock, I would want to understand my life earlier, so I could have been more prepared to deal with what I’ve had to live through, but others will have had to make changes too for anything to change. By the time we’ve understood and learned what it is we’re supposed to learn, time and our lives have already moved on.
Perhaps then, there’s no real point in turning back the clock, unless everyone else does the same and wants to change. That way we will all make significant changes together that help us shape better relationships with each other.
