Was it worth it?

That sounds like another way of asking if you have regrets. So - no regrets. It was worth it.

A wise friend gave me this bit of advice once:

Your job in life isn't to be perfect, it's to survive. Because if you don't survive, you'll never get the chance to fix your mistakes. So I can't tell you if something was worth it, because it's not past tense yet, I'm still working on it.

I suppose it could mean no regrets Tway... It's hard for me to say if I have any or not. Q-man I like that outlook, perhaps some of us are past the survival stage and are onto the fixing your mistakes? I wonder if you know when that time comes.

Of course it was worth it......maybe not for you, but I had fun....

If you gain experience in life from "it", then "it" is always worth it, be it good or bad (unless "It" is a giant flesh-eating clown...then you're screwed either way)

There isn't a moment in life, good or bad, that isn't worth it.

here i sit, with a black eye, a cold, just gettin over pink eye and im spittin up blood, in a not-so furnished apartment with not-so much food in it, with bad knees and blistered feet, no way to get around but walk, n tryin to make ends meet. I feel like shit..

and all in all, i couldnt be happier. been having the time of my life, as usual. the moral of the story? who the fick knows, its yours to figure out. all the shit i did to end up a mess right now? yea. it sure as hell was worth it. thats why im a smilin' mess.

love ya,

Damn Evan - what did you do to end up like that??? Feel like shit? Sounds like you look like it too! I think you were safer in Florida, but then - would that have been worth it...

Yup - worth every second of it. Have learned a lot and have a lot left to learn.

Evan! I want to bake you a batch of muffins and buy you some of that aloe-lotion Kleenex. But you're an inspiration - down and out and happy as can be. Now, don't forget to wash your hands and take your vitamin C.

Great replies everyone, and I couldn't agree more. No regrets is the way to live.

Well, My dad used to say:
"On your death bed you never regret things you done, just those you didn't"
