    Yeah right now I think I'd go back to like a month ago and see if there was some way I could prevent my relationship from ending

    but I've always been one of those "I wouldn't change my mistakes" people so maybe I'll feel differently when the whole healing thing is over

    yeah i know its hard right now but when you are finished hurting you will see

    you will meet a person and have a connection that will make that relationship look like what it really was - clown shoes

    I know! In theory.

    It's sort of like any other wound I guess

    This hurts now and I would like to fastforward to the part where it stops hurting!

    all those cliche after-dumping activities totally apply you know

    you channel that energy into something productive

    you draw a crazy project you've always wanted to do

    you start exercise regime

    you write angsty poetry that really demonstrates your mastery of the english language

    whatever man just be busy and maybe glean something that lasts out of it

    After i was dumped end of freshman year of college i finally committed to a diet plan and started running with C25k for the first time (granted i did it wrong) but now i run regularly and it's all because years later i looked back at that summer and remembered that I totally did finish that running plan once, and i could definitely do it again

    yup I am busying

    unfortunately a lot of my usual busy things are things that are hard for me to do right now because of FEELINGS

    I feel sort of like I might throw up if I try to draw for example. Need to work on commissions but get weird prickly cold feeling whenever I go near the bag that has my tablet in it.

    So hello chat you are distraction ty

    when you do a thing while working through THE FEELINGS the sense of accomplishment is amplified a thousandfold

    and when the wound has healed and you look back at what you learned from doing the thing you feel even more accomplished

    grab your tablet right now

    Yeah you're definitely right about that. I got dressed this morning without having to look at the ceiling so that's a thing. Still can't uncover the mirror though. Small steps I guess.

    okay this is super depressing I'm going to go play games now

    he literally hobbled up two flights of stairs to just avoid saying that he wasn't going home with her

    i spent the next two hours with her while she cried in a mcdonalds

    so yes, men are awful

    Counterpoint:

    I once drove 7 hours round trip just to have dinner with Nickie while we were dating, when she had a layover in Atlanta.

    hooking a videogame IV directly into your veins?

    also wtf are you doing when you could be grinding out the most genetically gifted, unstoppable fire emblem children that ever were coldly produced by an unfeeling and all powerful god

    When using video games as distraction from feelings, it's important to have many balls in the air at all times. The 3DS is perfectly designed for this project, as she can slice up Wyvern Lords with precocious purple haired children during the load times for her PC game. This prevents feelings from sneaking into the momentary gaps of video game engagement, you see.

    Maybe put something on Netflix too, just to be safe.

    You don't have to answer if that's too personal for a hypothetical question.

    For me at least, in the context of the original hypothetical question.

    I can't "save" my grandmother, because she died naturally.
    Saving one of my online friends who was killed in a carjacking would have required actual prophetic knowledge.
    I don't know if I could've done anything to stop another old friend from committing suicide.
    But telling this guy to get the hell out of that house is something I could've done, and would love to in retrospect.

    erg, I am so over this cast...to type at all I have to hold my left elbow up in the air and sit at an odd angle. 5 weeks of this BS is going to make me (more) nuts!

    I'm going to go test out how this waterproof cast works by getting a proper bath for the first time in a week.

    Soaking in hot water and eating ice cream (not usually in combination, but it can work!) can fix many many things, after all.

    I'm gonna be "that guy" and say I absolutely would not go back. I'm only who I am because I made the mistakes I did then. Even for the most painful parts I experienced or the most horrible things I could've prevented, I wouldn't want it to have happened any other way. I think the way things would be different, the way things would have to progress, I would end up deeply missing now, which is something I would never be able to get back, something which I, myself, invalidated the entire existence of.

    Mistakes are necessary, they're how you grow, and we have regrets to prevent things from happening in the future like they did in the past, not so that we can just lament the past for being what it was.

    Think about it like this: say you did hit the button, and you went back, and you lived out your life differently and avoided all the mistakes you made the first time around. Now you get to your current age, and lo and behold someone gives you the opportunity to hit the button just like last time. Would you hit it then? Surely, you would've made some new mistakes, things couldn't go exactly as you planned, everything wouldn't be totally perfect. On the reasoning you used to hit it the first time, why wouldn't you hit it again? And then, again? And again? Why would you ever let time progress, let anyone or anything in the world grow except yourself?

    The conceit is that you retain the experience, with less people getting hurt (or more if you're into that).
    Things I could have prevented include injuries and deaths, so it's ehh. I don't wanna wax poetic about how beautiful the tapestry of the human condition is.

    But I figure I'd stop the first time I had anything notable to lose, because I'm a coward.
    I guess I'm selfish enough to keep looping and amass skills. But I'd have to avoid getting too attached to a particular life. I'd be reluctant to reset a friend's memories, if only because putting them back they way they were would be super hard, maybe impossible.

    For better or worse I try to help, I"m not afraid of burning bridges or ruining friendships if it means I know I tried my damnedest to help someone.

    Just so it's clear - I didn't take your post to mean we should all rush back and try to prevent things from hurting people, I know you understand that sometimes people are just powerless. Still, it struck me how powerless I really was to help those people, and how little my now knowledge would help in the then. Thinking about it too much is even painful because I start trying to figure a way I might be able to fix it...to help, and the truth is there isn't a magic button and I have to live with the weight of all of this grief - and knowing that even if there were a magic button it wouldn't help helps with that circular thinking, the damnable "what if".
