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).
