I wish you changed your mind about some possible wrong impressions that you had about me.
There are many ways to express the same basic idea.
I wish you would change your mind about the poor opinion you formed of me while we were together,
--you would change (the changes have not been made yet, we are talking about future changes)
--the poor opinion you formed of me (or "the false impression I made on you" - Regardless of which you use, you are implying that the impression you made was false and unfavorable. "The false impression I made on you" has the advantage of making it sound like your fault. In other words, you are not accusing him/her of making a mistake, of doing something wrong. Although "poor opinion" and "impression" are singular, you could be referring to one or more incidents. There is no need to use the plural.)
--while we were together. (or "while I was with you")
