Relive Vs Reminisce

More and more often recently, I’ve been hearing friends go on about particular events or specific weeks of our lives that were stand out weeks or were really enjoyable etc and they went on about how they wanted to go back and have that day or that week again. And, now don’t get me wrong here, I loved every minute of these days that they have referred to- Graduation week was one of the best weeks of my life and I had so many funny night outs and events through University. Even down to simple days like spending an afternoon on the beach in the sun after one of our finals is one of the most enjoyable afternoons that I have ever spent.

Those are some of the best memories I have, but never, even if I lived through an infinite number of lifetimes, I would never want to relive those days or events. Those days and moments meant so much to me because of how my friends and I spent the time together. Reliving those days would mean changing what happened and I couldn’t bear to lose those memories, the laughter and stupidity and glorious company.

I don’t understand why you would want to relive the time you have already had. Why would you want to go back and relive a memory you have already had, when you could go out and create new, if not better memories? Our time is too short to go back and relive past experiences. It is one thing to reminisce and enjoy but to wish your time away on past events?
