Memories: Time Travel to the Past

Often, as human beings, we reflect on our past and wish that certain things had been different in our lives. So, if you could relive a single day of your life again, which would it be? Then, explain your reasons. Personally, there are many days I might relive again, good and bad days, and those days that were especially discouraging or disappointing. Being a father of children---one adult child, teenagers, and a younger child---there are times when I wish I could have spent more time with them, particularly when they just needed time to talk. Fortunately, we can learn from our past to make things better, and this is what I try to do everyday. Now, share your feelings on this topic.

  1. I don't usually look back on the past. I feel neither disappointed about sth I'd done wrongly nor
    nostalgic. I've always believed that we should make the most of our time, every single moment we spend with our family and friends. I wouldn't like to relive any days, but I'd certainly do something to manage to put some more time aside to be spent with my beloved ones. Time flies. There's a saying that goes like this: " Time is a good teacher but unfortunately it kills its students."

  2. I usually think about my past time. Through looking and thinking about mistake and wrong act, I can learn how I need to act in the future because I don't want to mistake again.
    But I recommend to look past situation in the view of third person. Because if you regret too deeply, then that makes you depressed.

  3. I think there no point looking to the past to feel sad - only to learn and make good future.

  4. the past has many kinds of memory. it inclues sad and happy. what r u going to do with your memories? if u just wanna relive..let do that, but u wanna use ur memories like a experienced lesson to avoid ur mistakes in the future or funny memories will help you overcome ur present pains...depending on ur choices. In short, i think we should control our memories to motivate our future.

  5. I never look back on the past because my life was perfect, so there is no blot in it.

  6. I usually think that travel to the past when I lost something. I have regret to not manage that thing.
    And also want to time travel when I become give up studies. I think that I want to be a preschool student.

    But now, I think I do not want to back to the past. I am living NOW(not past), and have to grow up to adult and die. This is the cycle of life. So I think I should be positive to live!

  7. I don't think that looking on back the past is bad. It is fine that you feel disappointed or sad when you look back. Ofcouse, I feel disappointed about me sometimes. But not all memories make you disappointed or sad. Sad memories, embarrassed memories, happy memories, gladly memories and many other memories are meking our lives. So it is important that looking on the past as same as future.
