If you could see one thing about your future, what would it be?
I would want to know if I was happy or not.
I’ve seen enough time travel shows and films to know how it ends. You find out what happens to you and then you try and change it. You try and fix all the bad decisions, all your mistakes, therefore changing your future. So you never really know what your future is any way. What’s the point in that?
The only thing that really matters is if I’m happy, whatever happens, whatever road I choose to go down, I don’t care, as long as it makes me happy. That’s what really matters, right?
Besides, the things we’d change need to happen. All our bad decisions, all our mistakes, make us who we are, they’re important. As long as it ends in happiness you can make as many mistakes as you need to to get where you need to go.
I want to make my bad decisions, I want to make my mistakes. I want to get hurt, I want to cry and feel pain. I want to mess everything up. I want to quit. I want to back out. I want things to not work out the way I hoped they would. I want to become a better person, I want to learn from my mistakes, and how can I do that if I don’t make any?
So I would find out if I was happy, and if I’m not, then that’s the thing I work to change. Not who I end up with, or what career I’m in. How many children I have, or where I live.
I know who I am, and I know I’m very indecisive, the things I want to be, and the people I want to be around will probably change, but as long as I’m happy, I don’t really mind.
