Don't wish for a different past.
In your life, you may have made many mistakes. You have regrets and remorse, that you wish you'd never had. But if you let yourself dwell on the small mistakes, or pains, that you wished never happened, you'll never experience the joyful outcomes that they bring. Even if those things seem painful, and you can not see any sort of joyous consequence, those things have changed you, strengthened you, and made you to be a better person. So why would you wish away the bad, when it subliminally grants you the good? You need the bad, to compare to the good. To make you cherish the good times, and feel grateful.
