Open question is something I’d like to try to get the thoughts and opinions of my followers on a subject and allow us to talk and debate etc. If you remember way back when I wrote an article that spoke about my opinions on God and it sparked a lot of debate in the comments and it was always very thoughtful and calm and respectful so I know you guys are up that etc. My last Open Question got a good response and I think this will be a regular thing now as long as you keep coming. Catch up with any Open Questions here.
Life is hard. When go through life on a cause and consequence basis, that is, we make a decision about something (to say or not say this, to do or not do that). But outlooks differ on this topic, some people will live in regret their whole lives (I wish I’d said this, I wish I’d done that) and there are those in the “ah well” camp, those who think that’s done now that’s in my past. It has chipped away at the rough statue and put you a step towards being the perfect you (obviously that’s extreme but you get the point).
I believe I am in the middle somewhere, I do feel regret, every does at some point but I think I can quickly push my mind back to the “ah well” point of view. Because at the end of the day nothing you can do can change that now. It’s done. It’s written in time.
But what if it wasn’t?
What if there was a rewind button. Something allowing you to go back and changing the event you regret and making it more in line with what you believe should have happened in the order you want.
…would you push it?
Would you change the cause thus changing the consequences?
I’d like to think I’d be strong enough to resist and leave the timeline be, but I’m not too sure. There are things in my past I do regret doing and seeing but years on, it isn’t affecting my life now – not in a massively big way anyway so what would be the point?
What do you think guys?
