I have thought about this probably more than I should. I have a few mistakes that I wish I could go back in time to change. Should have studied harder in school, shouldn't have gone on that date with Frank , should have spent more time with my grandparents before they past away...there is a lot of things I would like to change. I would say the number one thing on my list would be helping a friend of mine who commited suicide. I feel like if I would have been a better friend he may not have killed himself. I had no idea that he was having so many problems and I wish I could have been there to help him. I miss him so much. We were best friends in Junior High and High School but grew apart when I went to college. I would see him on breaks, but we didn't have the same relationship when we would get together. I just thought it was because of our time apart, not because he was having problems in his life. He kept it hidden from me, and that makes me sad. If I could go back, I would spend more quality time with him and not just "goofing around" towards the end. Hindsight is 20/20 and I wish I could go back to let him know how important he was, and still is to me. It makes me think of a quote by Claudia Grant in Robotech: "Don't let too much time go by before you tell him how you feel." I am glad I at least gave him a big hug, said I loved him and to take care the last time I saw him. At least I have that memory since I can't go back in time to try to change things. :) So, if you were given the chance to travel back in time to change something, what would it be?
