No I Wouldn't

Someone asked me if I had one wish to go back in time and change things in my life 
would I...
I thought about the question and came up with my answer...
When I was 25 years old I wish I had that opportunity to change a few things 
When I was 35 years old I wish I had that opportunity to change a few things
But now that I am in my 40yrs I have come to realize that ...
I am who I am and I don't wish I could go back in time to change some of the things I have done
For I wouldn't be the person that I am 
For I wouldn't have experienced those situations that made me grow
For I wouldn't be able to make the decisions that I make now from the knowledge I have ascertained
For I wouldn't have met the people that I know now from so many years ago that has been a great friend/inspiration to me
So my answer is I don't wish to take advantage of changing things in my past because if I did, I wouldn't be who I am nor experienced certain things that I have and to me this is all important
