Is "I Wish I Were" Or "I Wish I Was" Correct?

You have a wish. But to express that wish, should you say “I wish I were” or “I wish I was”? Short answer: “I wish I were” is grammatically correct, but let’s take a further look at the rules. We’re going to talk about subjunctive rules.

Grammar Lesson
“Were” and “was” are both past-tense conjugations of the verb “to be.” Use “was” when you are using the first-person singular pronoun "I" or the third-person singular pronouns "he" or "she."

“Were” is the appropriate version when you are using second-person singular and plural pronouns "you," "your," "yours." You can also use “were” with first- and third-person plural pronouns "we" and "they."

Confused about pronouns yet? Try saying them out loud. “He were going to school” isn’t right, but “he was going to school” rolls off the tongue.

Why Is It “I Wish I Were”?
Good question! After all the pronouns we just talked about, why are we breaking the rules? We’re not breaking the rules, we’re just using something called the “subjunctive mood.”

The subjunctive is used when referring to potential or hypothetical situations, like wishing for something that doesn’t exist yet. “I wish I were” is grammatically correct because you’re wishing for something that hasn’t occurred yet. Once it becomes real, you can switch back to “was.”

“I wish I were surrounded by a pile of puppies right now.”

Flash forward to visiting an animal shelter: “I was the happiest person in the world when I was playing with all the puppies.”

You can also identify the subjunctive by the context of the sentence. Think about the song “If I Were a Rich Man” from Fiddler on the Roof. Starting the sentence with “if” indicates the potential nature of the situation. It doesn’t actually exist yet, and the subjunctive should be used.

It does not require many words to speak the truth.

Chief Joseph
When Chief Joseph began his 1879 address in Washington, D.C., with these words, he was setting the stage for an entreaty to the U.S. government to allow his people, the Nez Percé American Indian tribe, to return to their land in the Pacific Northwest. These words were an effort to show that two differing groups — white men and Indigenous Americans — could understand each other and see one another’s points of view. They are words worth living by on a personal level as well. To forge relationships based on love and understanding, we need to speak from the heart and with honesty.

Lady Gaga
In a crowded field, Lady Gaga is one of the biggest pop superstars of the past decade-plus, and a huge part of that fame comes from her ability to inspire self-worth through her lyrics. That’s just what she does in her song “Bad Kids” (co-written by Lady Gaga, Fernando Garibay, and Jeppe “Senior” Laursen), off the empowering, anthemic 2011 album “Born This Way.” This song was inspired by the many stories Gaga heard from fans while touring — anecdotes about being judged for one's appearance, dealing with divorcing parents, and more. The song is dedicated to those who have been through hardships but remain good-hearted in the end. “I wanted a song to tribute their stories,” Gaga tweeted. “I’m a Bad Kid, too.”

From the moment they first met in 2011, Jin took care of Jungkook and as they grow older and up to now, they have have become so close and even developed the so called Bromance.
