These days, everyone seems to yearn for the past. Back to times that were simpler, easier, happier.
But I don't.
Perhaps the road was hard, and I did struggle. But it was my road. I earned every step. It made me who I am today. Why would I want to return to that shy, stammering child who never really lived? For I have lived life more fully now than I ever did. When I am happy, now, why would I want a reset to despair? It doesn't make much sense to me. For I prefer the present, to the past.

    Nice. But I prefer the past. Maybe not resetting to being a kid again but at least the era that I was in during that time. I much prefer the 70s and 80s to today. But it's great that you're comfortable with who you are. Not everyone can say that.
