Things I Wish I Had Said
25th-Oct-2005 02:04 pm
This is destined to be a hit or a failure. Time will tell.

All of us have wanted to go back to some point in our life and say or do something a little bit different. Maybe you wish you had told a lover how you really felt about them. Maybe you never had a final moment with a friend or a parent before they died. Maybe you wish you had told a friend not to drive drunk. Maybe it is something as simple as telling a bully where to get off.

We can't go back. We can't forget. Maybe saying something here will help. Maybe this can be a reminder to all of us for next time.

I wish I had said more at my lunch date this summer. I thought I had done a good job of listening so much, but his biggest thing was he said I didn't talk the whole night. I wish I had said what I wanted to say when it came up. he siad he wished he wasn't the oldest sometimes becasue you have to be so responsible all the time, and I totally agree and was so happy to hear someone say that, confess it, to be more accurate, and I said, but that's part of being the oldest, instead of saying God, me too, it's so nice to hear someone else say that, and know they mean it. I wish I had told him his ID picture was cute and flirted a little more, cause it was cute. I wish instead of telling him I don't drink when he asked me to the bar, I had said instead, sure and ordered a juice there and explained then that I'm not really a drinker. I had grown to really like the guy, what I knew of him, and my first date I was so tounge-tied and so wrapped up in being a listener and not putting myself out there that I blew it. I see him around sometimes still, and I wish I'd been better that one time. I'd rather be giving it a go w him sometimes than deal w my current never-ending situation.

My current situation, some days I wish I had turned the car around and told him to get out when he started thsi whole mess. Some days I wish I'd said "yes" when I said no that first and only night. How was I to know there'd never be a second night. They tell girls not to give it up so easily. Did they forget to tell the men how to chase?

R.W. - I wish I *hadn't* said what I said. I don't think it would have made a difference (?), but I wouldn't have had it thrown back in my face 18 years later.

W.H. - I wish I'd told you to kiss my ass at the first red flag instead of at the 100th. I am worth so much better.

R.M. - I wish we'd made up before you died. I wish I'd at least made sure you knew how special you were - are - to me. Brother, you are never far from my mind.

It seems we both had a similar idea - have a look at www.iwishidsaid.com - where you can say all the things you wish you had said and find out what others wish they had said to you

great for saying nice things - but cowardly for anything else - what about the children of menand women who are now nothing like the people they used to be? do they deserve to see the dirt dug up about their parents? will it help them or anyone? this is a site for bitter and twisted people, and will be responsible for morethan one suicide i reckon......

Last time I checked, we were all someone's child.

While there might have been some merit to your argument had it been well thought out, posting anonymously epitomizes the concept of cowardice. I expect this post is little more than a troll.

The Original Poster, at least s/he is doing something; trying to make a difference somewhere.

what sort of difference? site says it is fun and free - what fun is there in just slagging off people - I saw some of the postings to the site, people caling others 'bitch' etc. I feel that there could be a better channel for the energy these people have - Hitler made a difference - don't think your argument holds any value whatsoever - 'the past is a different place - people do things different there...'

Ahhh... Godwin's Law... as a discussion grows longer, "the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."

My point A/C is simply that you are finding fault with something that clearly was begun with good intention however you offer no solution to these problems. It's akin to saying "the government is broken" but not having any idea how to change it. Stating the obvious is not productive.

as a discussion grows, the probability of a comparison to ANYTHING occurring will approach 1 - that is basic common sense!! quoting someone's law is just plain stupid, doesn't make it right, we can all find something to quote - if we can[t think of original ideas - jerk

I'll spend two minutes to feed an anonymous coward/troll...

Eighteen months have passed and this is the best you can do? Wow. You either lack conviction or the intellect to run with the big boys, but either way, you've been found to be lacking. You've still offered nothing of value. You've still failed to contribute a single solution to the problem. Like I said, lacking.

Here's a free piece of advice: Turn off Fox News, go outside and take a deep breath. Try to find something that resembles humanity and common decency instead of trying to tear someone else down.
