A "do over"is getting put in the same situation as some time in the past, only this time, knowing what you know from the past event, it is like you get a second chance to get it right.

So have any of you gotten a "do over"?

Mr. Bambi here...

Yes, many times. The one that comes to mind is when I was the "date from hell." Arrived late; offered to put oil in her car's engine and ended up putting the oil in the power steering reservoir; locked my keys in my car... that type of night. Needless to say, it was a first date.

The date was so awfully bad that the lady knew it was not me - it was the bad alignment of the stars (or something like that). Anyway, she gave me a "do over," we had an excellent "second first date," and continued to see each other for quite a while afterwards.

i have a very bad temper, everytime i am in a situation where my temper flares up it's kind of a do-over -- an opportunity to act differently with my anger -- sometimes i get it right and manage to cool myself off in seconds, other times i continue to do irrational rants and raves ... this is something i really want to get right. when i lose my temper in total irrational ways, i feel like my father (even tho he resorted to violence against others and mine only gets put out in words -- altho i have also done irrational things like throwing things across the room).

There's a thought about anger...there's several kinds. One is the righteous anger over things unfair....and that's the anger that motivates people to fight injustice...that makes you a warrior for the Good.

Then there's the anger over one's own failed expectations taken out on others. "It's your fault I'm not a success". This is stuff (when possible) to get away from. Understand as a kid when this comes down on you, hard to get away from it. Been there, done that.

Then there's the anger of "failed expectations" when someone doesn't live up to our expectations...and that is the kind of anger that is useless...because our expectations about what others should do assumes they will always do what we want them to do. And usually we have no right to those expectations --we make them up--so best to just get rid of the expectations...and thus the anger.

o, my anger flares up over stupid things like a messy house, but i've noticed its mostly to do with either headaches or tiredness -- i like to be busy and i get frustrated when my body gives out, then i act up! it's really stupid and childish and i really don't like that part of myself.

I need several do-overs, actually.
