This thread is about things you had always wanted, or wanted real bad, (and never attained) but after some time went by you realized you were better off without them.<br><br><br><br>
Reading the women rip on boyfriends, husbands, etc. (and rightfully so) has made me rethink my not so secret plan of acquiring VB female companionship. Could you imagine if I screwed up I'd have 50 women verbally kicking my ass! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

I'm better off without that big paycheck and the corner office with the wall-to-wall windows. I had it for a while, but it wasn't worth the headache, the time, and feeling like a greedy scumbag. It was bad karma. Even though I make a ton less now, and don't have any kind of office at all, I'm much happier.

Bret Michaels. Oh, how I loved the long hair, tight pants, hard body of his rock n' roll nature.<br><br>
But alas,<br><br>
Dude's been around. A little too much for my tastes.

I'm definitely better off without my dad! For the longest time, I wanted him to come around and treat me, his girlfriend and his mother how we all should be treated. Then all I asked for was an apology and he wouldn't even muster that, and so I kicked him to the curb. Best thing I ever did.<br><br><br><br>
Plus long hair! Phooey on long hair.

Good thread idea!<br><br><br><br>
I've pretty much gotten everything I've ever wanted (I don't want much), but I did dream about having lots and lots of kids.<br><br><br><br>
I only ended up with one - and I'm glad (because I'd be spending time in the nut AND poor house if I had any more).

Marrying my ex... (whe he wasn't my ex)... I am SO much better off without him. He's still a lovely guy but not right for me. I wanted to be with him forever, and I'm glad I didn't get that.<br><br><br><br>
A really good mark for my last ever performance exam... I really wanted the mark I deserved (high) but got a low mark... but I'm better off because it made me realise that performnce sucks and I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for that lousy grade... and where I am now is getting my PhD!

Great thread!<br><br><br><br>
Something I had: I'd say I don't miss my long hair at all.<br><br><br><br>
Something I wanted but never had: Suzuki SV 650. Now I'm too scared of even thinking about riding one!<br><br><br><br>
But will try to think of something more profound...

Well, a while back I was supposed to take an all-expenses-paid trip through Japan over the summer. Had I done that, I wouldn't have become a writing tutor, wouldn't have met the department chair at my school, and wouldn't have gotten a job as a teacher in the school of my dreams. I was pretty bitter about the trip falling through at the time, but it all worked out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Oh Man....where to start...<br><br><br><br>
Better off without the crack smoking *then* love of my life. Oh God....still hitting myself in the head it took two years to figure out he might just have....substance abuse problems. What can I say, I was Very young in years and even younger in emotions.<br><br><br><br>
Better off without Seattle. YIKES. Whoever knew it could rain so much in four years.<br><br><br><br>
Better off without...the tiny blue car my X decided to take with him when he left. He left our daughter and myself carless and walking to school, work, for groceries, etc. We became healthier as a result...and I was able to get a car later on my own, which was nice.<br><br><br><br>
Better off without COFFEE! After ten or so years drinking the stuff I gave it up. YEAAAAAAAAA! I no longer have to attach an iv to the coffee pot every morning.<br><br><br><br>
Better off without...ALCOHOL! WooHooo...thirtteen years of having a few beers a night...only cost me LOTS of money (I never was one for cheap beer in a can), and left me completely annesthetized to the really cruddy life I had come to call mine.<br><br><br><br>
Better off without...eating animals (that goes without saying on a veggie board)<br><br><br><br>
Better off without the seventy five lbs I had put on as a result of drinking lots of beer, eating too many animals and having to have sugar in my coffee as well as something sweet to eat WITH my coffee. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
There are SO many things we think we need and want. But in the end, these things do us NO good whatsoever.<br><br><br><br>

"Sometimes I thank God, for unanswered prayers, remember when you're talking to the man upstairs, just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care, sometimes I thank God, for unanswered prayers" - Garth Brooks (I'm certain someone else penned those words/thougts, but how true are they?) Forgive me if the quote is off, but you get the gist.<br><br><br><br>
We all have those hopes and dreams that we're fortunate never came true, or to fruition. No?

popularity and acceptance from my peers. when i was in school anyways. there was a time where it seemed really important, but i learned that it is a lot more work than its worth and i have more meaningful friendships now

I wouldn't be better off if I hadn't married my X...then I wouldn't have Madison. However, I'm a LOT better off that he left, even though I DID REALLY want him to stay and for my crummy little anethatized life to continue on course...ick. I'm really glad I didn't get my wish either shewolf.<br><br><br><br>

Oh, and forgive the typo - One of my hopes/dreams that hasn't come to reality yet is that I can type perfectly - but in the spirit of the thread, maybe I'm better off without being able to spell everything correctly as quickly as I think it and push "submit reply"
