At this time, ten years ago, what would you be doing differently?

Back in March, 2006, I was playing baseball as a high school Freshman for my high school's baseball team. I was also performing in a school play at the same time. I had JUST gotten my temporary driver's license, and I was having a great time in my life. I really miss this time period :(

Anyway, if I had to do one thing differently back in the Spring of 2006, I would have stood up to my baseball coach. My coach treated me unfair by benching me virtually every game-Even though I was a better Baseball player than some of the people who started every day. I wish I would have FOUGHT against him, and raised Hell about it. Unfortunately, I was more passive back then, and just "went with the flow." I still have a great time with the team, and we had the best record in our high school's Freshman history for Baseball.

  • I would have gone to College, and then work my butt off so I could have bought a house by now, but then if I had done that I wouldn't have had my two crazy and lovable boys! I wouldn't trade anything in the world for the decisions I made.

    It sounds like your coach saw a lot of potential in you. He pushed you beyond your limit and you made history at your school freshman year... that's awesome

  • At this time, ten years ago, I had just started my career proper in the rail industry. Almost everything got better from there - by the end of 2006, I owned my own home.

    I would have taken the opportunity to try and fix the nascent problems in my relationship which built up and lead to it ending six years later.

  • I was 15 years old then. I think I would've tried to get in shape sooner. That's the only change. Everything else was fine.

  • Going to bed because I'd have school in the morning. Instead I'm staying up to an irresponsibly late hour despite having to wake up early tomorrow morning.

    • I would do nothing differently. Misunderstood the question. I was a normal 10 year old who had a fun life xD

    • That's cool!

      Really, there isn't much I would do differently during my entire life.

    • I feel like... becayse of the butterfly effect... I can really only wish for a do over on my most recent mistakes. And I haven't made huge ines recentky but I'm sure I will again eventually xD

  • well 10 years ago i would be 5. i think that would put me in like 2nd or 3rd grade. i was offered to skip those grades so id push my parents on letting me advance grades. i honestly feel dumber lol

    • Right, but I asked what would you do DIFFERENTLY. Unless sleeping in bed is something you would have done differently.

    • Show All
    • Maybe you need to do a question update bro. Most people are reading it the way I did.

    • I guess it could be read either way, but if people closely read my description, they would see I meant differently for the time being.

  • I would be out playing pool hanging with mates and working in a job I loved

  • In 2006 I was almost completing my first year of college. I would have concentrated on a subject more and been less shy and awkward and painfully anxious in social settings. I didn't have a lot of confidence. I would have studied and gone into medical school and have gotten a doctorate or have done nursing. I have a degree but it's an English degree and kind of useless.

  • I would have seen a mental health care professional. I denied something was wrong with me for years because I was holding it all together on the outside... But that can't endure and it devolved into being way worse than if I'd just faced it head on.

    • What was the situation?

    • Anxiety/depression or a mood disorder of some sort. A lot of people in my family have issues and my childhood was a mess... But I was total outward perfectionist for ages despite obvious secret problems. I ended up developing extreme panic disorder. I think if I'd seen someone earlier, I would've learned to cope before it got so far.

    • It seems so silly, now, to avoid help because of some inner stigma.
