Aloha Friday - Life
A friend of mine on Facebook posed the question, "If you could go back to any point in time and live it again, what period of your life would it be and why?"
I thought about that question for some time and finally decided that I would relive my teen years. I didn't have a particularly happy teen life and that's why I would do it over again. I would want to be less shy and talk to people more. I realize now that I cheated myself out of good friendships simply because I was too afraid to talk to the "popular" kids. I was afraid they wouldn't like me if they got to know me. I had low self-esteem, I guess.
Today, I'm friends with a lot of those very people of whom I was afraid some 30 years ago. They were just ordinary people, like me. They had those same fears that I did.
My question to you is the same as my friend's:
"If you could go back to any point in time and live it again, what period of your life would it be and why?"
