If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I’d take back those words that’ve hurt you, you’d stay
If I could reach the stars, I’d give ’em all to you
Then you’d love me, love me, liked you used to do.
If I were able to use a time turner to turn back time, there are a lot of things I would do differently. I don’t necessarily regret anything I’ve done, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be able to make things better.
Yes, I graduated from college, but as I’ve said before, I didn’t do as well as I expected or wanted to.
But I think the main thing I would do is find the root of my anxiety and try to nip it in the bud. At the very least, I’d be able to give my younger self some better coping mechanisms.
I would have a lot more self-confidence now if I knew better ways to deal with it when I was growing up. I didn’t even know how bad it was until I got to college. I’m not trying to pin all my academic mistakes on anxiety, but I would’ve been able to push through it and focus more if I knew how to manage it. I would’ve probably avoid burnout altogether.
But I can’t turn back now. All I can do is focus on improving myself in the future.
