Sometimes I wonder if I’m living in parallel worlds. That each time I make a life-altering decision, or some major event takes place, that all the possible outcomes happen, but in different realities.
I married my high school beau, instead of my college boyfriend. I didn’t avoid that driver who ran a red light, I stayed in Tennessee, I had a third child….
So many possibilities, so many lives.
What would I change? What would I do the same way again?
Tell secrets, keep them? Say “yes,” instead of “no.”
If I had the choice, would I want to know what my other lives were like?
When I look in a mirror, is my other self looking back at me?
