Would you live your life again?

Would you live your life again?

In The Twilight Zone: The Movie, the last story was about a group of old people in a home who are offered youth again. Almost all of them accept it Ė but one doesn't, on the grounds that she didnít want to have to go through the experience of growing up again.

it was be great to be able to return to our lives with the wisdom we have already acquired from it. But isn't that all part of growing up anyway?

But isnít there also the danger of repeating past "mistakes", on the ground that the lessons learned no longer seemed so relevant in a second lifetime?

Anyway, what would you do if offered the chance?

for me, this decision would depend on a number of factors surrounding the offer. the most important of which would be simply "how old am i when the offer is made?"

if it were tomorrow, i would say no as i haven't yet lived my current life long enough. if it were 40 years from now, i'd most certainly say yes.

It all depends. Do I live it out exactly as I have the first time around? If so, then forget it. Been there, done that.

However, if things change then it isn't really reliving your life because it would be a whole new life.

The only thing I might regret is the fact that I wouldn't have the same wife and/or children as I did the first time.

As well, there's no guarantee that the second time around might not be worse than the first!!

I think I'd decline. By ensuring I don't make the same mistakes I'd only increase the likelihood of making entirely new ones.

It would be interesting to relive some experiences, but I like where I am right now.

Mostly.

I think I'd rather live somebody else's life over. It seems to me that living your own life over would be exceedingly dull because you already know how it goes.

Good question

If you want to live your life over to prevent the mistakes that you made, did you think that preventing those mistakes might end up that you make bigger mistakes. One only knows. One change, changes everything.

[IF]

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a
women, my son!

--Rudyard Kipling
