Thoughts of Tobias
I Always Remind Myself...
"ellapsem semel occasionem non ipse potest iuppiter reprehendere" - Latin Proverb

Not even Jupiter can find a lost opportunity.

Not even the king of all gods can take back what he has done.

...
...
Before making a decision, I always think "what will this choice do to me?" and "what will this choice do to others?"
There's no possible way I can just take back what I've done. There's no possible way to take back what you've done. "The World Spins Madly On".
But what if there was? What if time travel existed in our world? Could that erase any mistake we've done? I think not.
Say you hurt a person emotionally with words. Overwhelmed by guilt, you decide to transfer your consciousness back in time to your body before you made the choice to hurt this person. Before the damage would've been done, you decide to just ignore this person. This person was never hurt by your comment... therefore your guilt never existed... right?
You still did it. You still hurt this person... just not in /this/ timeline. In that other timeline, that person is still recovering from what you did. You /should/ still have the guilt resulting from what you did in that timeline, I mean, you /are/ the same conscious.
You see?
No matter what you do, no matter what is possible, you cannot take back what you have done.
Always think about what you do.

    already commented on time travel... But let me add, I'm a person who finds it hard to make decisions, precisely because I think of the potential effects on others as well as myself. It seems like it's rarely so clear which choice is best that I end up nervously ping-ponging back and forth, unable to make any choice. It's not good but I seem unable to get past it.
