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).

Many people value solitude, and having time to themselves.

For others though, loneliness can be a crippling feeling.

Having no one to talk to or spend time with can get wearying after an extended amount of time.

Something many people know more than ever after the global pandemic hit in spring of 2020.

But while some people simply succumb to being lonely, others will find ways to help them cope with, if not completely forget, being all alone.

Redditor No_Blackberry_6286 was curious to hear the different ways people have of coping with their loneliness, leading them to ask:

"Reddit, how do you cope with loneliness?"

In this day and age of advancement, it's crazy how so many things leave our heads scratching.

Like how in 2022 is such and such still around?

Everyone in New York wondered that for the past decade until they took the final payphone.

I always wonder about companies that still make you send a fax.

Y'all have heard of email right?

RedditorPineapple_WarpDrivewanted to compare notes on why we think certain things and parts of life are not yet obsolete this late in the game of time. They asked:

"It’s 2022, what shouldn’t exist now?"

It's PRIDE month. It's time to be loud and proud.

Well, every minute of everyday we should be loud and proud.

But this month gives you an extra special buzz.

So in the spirit of learning, we will be taking questions from the class.

I know cisgender straight people still have a lot they don't understand.

What do you need to know?

Redditorhre_nftwanted everyone to feel comfortable enough to be as aloud what they've been waiting to ask a queer person. Safe space for all. They asked:

"What question have you always wanted to ask LGBTQ+ people but didn’t because you don’t want to offend them?"
