Have You Ever Wish You Are Younger?

My birthday was 2 days ago and it was honestly a time for serious sober reflection for me. I felt very bad and believe I haven't achieve enough for my age (Mid Thirties). However, I have a second thought on how difficult my childhod was and how I started to fend for myself (partly/fully) since the age of 12, the challenges of coming out this successful as a product of a broken home and several milestone of problems as well as physical and mental abuse I suffered as a child.

All the same looking back I wish Iam in my twenties now rather than be in my thirties (without deceiveing myself despite my extremely young look) and I believe many people will usually felt like me at one point in time.

My question for my fellow people here is have you ever which you are younger?

I call it the age of wisdom I could never ask for better, however it comes with great responsibility "understanding and accepting others" I would never wish to go back or trade this age for anything. Some days are better some are harder. I am where I am suppose to be

On several occasions. How I wished it was possible. I would have done several things differently.

No need to. I look half my age. I look forward to the future. Yep there something that i wish I did when i was younger. But I cant change the past but I can change the direction I am heading by making smart decision learning from my mistakes and being courageous by trying new things and not letting anybody get in my way. It never to too late to change. Press forward not backwards.

well i quite agree with you that one cannot turn back the hands of time , this thought however, i believe could gear one up to work harder to achieve one's goals and aspiration.

your feelings are very common, not the wanting to be young part though. i mean reaching a certain age and wishing you had done more etc.

but the thing is if you are never happy at where you are, you will never get where you are going.

yes you had rough childhood and that may have greatly hindered your quick future development, but how long are you going to dwell on that?

yes some people have it easy in terms of securing their future, some in their teens, twenties, thirties etc. but being in your mid 30s doesn't mean you are too old to sail along.

you are still quite young IMO, and the longer you have dwell on the "what ifs, buts, wish, shoulda, woulda, couldas" of life especially at this stage, the more it will definitely impair you more. then when you reach 40, you will wish you were still in your 30s because you haven't achieved anything. and the wishing continues, till when? 90?

and what guarantees do you have that if you were in your 20s, you would have achieved security?

my dear, you still have plenty of times (ages)ahead of you to reach beyond the skies, stop wishing on the past and start living the present

Thank you for your contribution, honestly I thank God for how much He has helped me to get to this level and hoping that with His mercies I can attain even more greater heights. I have seen many of my mates who does not suffer as much as I do but at the moment still looking up to someone like me so in the end there are reasons why I should thank God.
