People Admit What They Would Delete From Their Lives If They Could

[rebelmouse-image 18354009 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One thing computers gave us that we didn't have before was the delete button. One keystroke and you can remove something you don't like. What if we had a delete button in real life too?

Reddit user Alt-Volt asked "If you could permanently delete anything in your life, what would it be?"

Here are the parts of their lives people would like gone.

DC Disappointment

[rebelmouse-image 18354010 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My memory of Batman V Superman.

Jack of All Trades, Master of None

[rebelmouse-image 18354011 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My mediocrity. I'm not great at anything, just OK at a lot of things. I truly admire the passionate experts of life.

Long Haul

[rebelmouse-image 18352294 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My commute to work. 30,000 miles a year gets old quick. Unfortunately nothing closer pays well enough.

Woke

[rebelmouse-image 18354012 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The need to sleep.

This is the one thing I would definitely delete too. But I wouldn't let anyone know so that I could still enjoy time for myself, 6 hours a day everyday.

The Recent Past

[rebelmouse-image 18354013 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Probably the last 4 years of my life. Time wasted at uni, jobs I didn't enjoy. I'm at a place in my life now where I'm really happy and things are working out great.

But I think I'd like to see how things would have turned out if I did things differently.

The Bottle

[rebelmouse-image 18354014 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Alcoholism. I miss drinking with friends so much. Trouble is, I can never stop there.

Agony

[rebelmouse-image 18354015 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Chronic pain. I've forgotten what it feels like to be pain-free.

Grieving

[rebelmouse-image 18354016 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The grief of losing someone to suicide. I wish I didn't have to feel these feelings, and there's no end to it. He's just gone.

Narcotics

[rebelmouse-image 18349734 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I dealt with a narcotics addiction for almost 10 years. My family had an infinite amount of patience and are still in my life but I lost all my friends.

Every single one of them.

I have memories of things I did, that seemed cool or something at the time. I look back on them and feel like I've been punched in the stomach, like I can't believe how S#%@ of a person I was.

No one tells you that forgiving yourself is the hardest part.

Atypical

[rebelmouse-image 18354017 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My OCD. Oh how life would be perfect without dealing with a pain in the arse malfunctioning brain.

After School Activity

[rebelmouse-image 18354018 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Homework. All my life! I'd rather stay in school for an extra hour then!

Don't Talk About It

[rebelmouse-image 18354019 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd delete everything I remember about FIGHT CLUB, so I could rewatch it again and have my mind blown.

Addiction

[rebelmouse-image 18354020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My addiction to opiates. It took away the better part of my 20's, nearly killed me, and put people I love through incredible trauma and pain. It put me through incredible trauma and pain. I wish every day I had never started on pills. Never switched to the needle. All sorts of things I wish I had never done.

The mistakes of my past haunt me daily, and I'm in incredible pain over it still, even as I come up on one year clean soon. I'm not ready to forgive myself, and I'm not sure when I will be.

Blues

[rebelmouse-image 18351997 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Depression, which results in sadness, which results in anxiety, and which results in wishing to delete yourself.

Ambition

[rebelmouse-image 18354021 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Laziness / Procrastination.

The amount of stuff I could get done. OMG.

We'll Always Have...

[rebelmouse-image 18344784 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My recent trip to Paris. I traveled there to meet my bf and came back to my town with him as my ex.

Lighter

[rebelmouse-image 18354022 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Any excessive body weight. Being able to permanently maintain ideal body weight effortlessly would be awesome.

Decisions, Decisons

[rebelmouse-image 18354023 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My indecisiveness with what I want in life and the doubts i have about everything. Some days I seem like I may know what I'm looking for/wanting for myself future wise or even silly things like what I want to do that day, but most days I just have no clue. It affects my relationship as well because I even second guess whether that's what I want one day and the next I'm head over heels in love with my partner again. It's so exhausting and it turns me into a horrible person at times because I push the people I love away from me.

I Owe, I Owe

[rebelmouse-image 18354024 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Any current and future debt from my higher education, especially since I'm planning on going for the PhD after I finish my undergrad degree.

Oh, and pseudo-archaeology, people that push that shit suck (looking at you History Channel).

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
