Be responsible.

Probably tell my friend in high school that he really needs to wear his seatbelt and give him money or punch him in the face or threaten him or anything to make it sink in so he doesn't die when I leave for college.

Always keep the receipts.

Break up with Karen in time to change the plane ticket and resort reservation to someone that wasn't a damn **.

Ah Bitcoin... so confusing.

[rebelmouse-image 18350888 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When I decided not to buy or mine Bitcoin at $20.

If only...

[rebelmouse-image 18354335 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I go back to my brothers 18th birthday and tell him not to go to his friends girlfriends house. This would stop him from getting murdered.

There's so much more to see.

[rebelmouse-image 18354336 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not moving directly to DC after I graduated college.

Hit the books!

[rebelmouse-image 18354337 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd go back to the beginning of last year, my final semester in college and I'd try a lot harder to get job offers instead of just accepting and settling for the place I had my internship at. I knew I wouldn't like it here, I knew the benefits were garbage, but I took it anyway because I was afraid of not getting any other offers if I passed it up. Everyday I sit in this office I wish I could go back and do it again.

Just do it!

Ask out the most beautiful girl I saw in my university course about 16 years ago. I found out much later on she liked me too.

Don't be so negative.

[rebelmouse-image 18979023 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Slap my dumb, idealistic, delusional self in the face and major in finance instead of polisci. The world is crap, you're not gonna change it, study the most profitable thing possible.


[rebelmouse-image 18979024 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I choose not to talk to the crazy hot redhead.

Invest in weed.

[rebelmouse-image 18979026 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd go back to the day when I decided to buy my first pack of cigarettes as a teen. This way I would have more money each to buy something more useful and less harmful.

Money, money, money.... it's a rich man's world.

[rebelmouse-image 18979027 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When I changed my major from accounting to marketing. I love marketing, but I'd be making WAY more money in accounting.

Say yes always! Say no later.

[rebelmouse-image 18979028 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Take the offer from a girl I was close with to go out with her in 8th grade.

I have regrets, and there's a lot of things I dislike about my decision, but that's one that which could've solved a lot of problems for me down the road of life.

Don't rock the boat.

[rebelmouse-image 18979029 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

None of them. For better or worse, every decision up to this point has made me who I am.

Maybe if I had made a different decision many of the things that have lead me here would have never happened.

I've thought about this before, everything you do and decision you've made has lead you to where you are, changing may not only affect that, but affect those around you.

Think about it, you go back and change a decision you made, maybe that slight change makes you not meet up with a friend, which sets off the original timing and prevents them from meeting their future wife/husband or prevents them from getting through an intersection right before a semi-truck randomly loses control and barrels through it taking their life. Little changes can have large effects.

Use your hands.

[rebelmouse-image 18979030 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would go back to the end of my senior year and try to get an apprenticeship with a custom furniture maker. Hind sight is 20/20.

Get off Tinder.

[rebelmouse-image 18979031 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When I had a meaningless one night stand while being in a relationship with the women of my life. I would pay any price to undo that.

Think ahead!

[rebelmouse-image 18979032 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The start of high school. Puberty done me good and I had no idea how to handle the attention. I became slutty, bratty, stuck up, careless. Thought I was too hot. I was really smart too, but I let it go to waste. Now i'm jobless, pregnant, and have herpes. Haha karma really showed me

What's in a name?

[rebelmouse-image 18979033 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Buying the stock of some company with a stupid name right after it went public. Google.

Be kind, rewind.

[rebelmouse-image 18979034 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Go back to the day I yelled at the guy at work who had just found out that morning he had terminal cancer (I learned later). And speak calmly instead of yelling.

It was the only time I ever lost my temper with someone at the office. He wasn't the easiest dude to work with, but I made the wrong choice.


[rebelmouse-image 18979035 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd go back in time to the point where I was given the option to go back in time.

Stick with water.

[rebelmouse-image 18979037 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd tell younger me to not try the tequila dad kept in the freezer. Pretty steadily downhill after that.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
