If you could go back in time for a moment, and tell your younger self just one of life’s lessons you have learned from experience—what would it be?

Stay in school. Getting married is no excuse to quit college even if you keep going back.

Remember to live life to the fullest as always, and keep calm and carry on!

Relax and lighten up.

Study art at college instead of sciences. If you don’t, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life. And you’ll fail at the science stuff anyway.

I would say what my younger self said to me namely ‘never give up’.

Love yourself no matter what.

When people show you who they really are, believe them, the FIRST time! lol

Never, ever, ever think you can change another.

And yes, love yourself!

Do good in school and don’t fuck it up. Don’t stop playing soccer. Don’t stop playing the violin. Oh, and see that boy over there? Yeah, stay away from him – he is going to demolish your heart and cause psychological damage that will take you years to get over.

Stay away from that boy, he’s going to break your heart. And so are the next 5.

Always speak up for yourself, say what you feel, and right off the bat express what you think. There are people out there who will accept you. Stop trying to be the person you want everyone to like, it’ll never happen. NEVER be afraid to try new things and DON’T let something small stop you from ANYTHING.

Definitely get your college degree and stop hanging out so much. Its time for that later.

It’s not a romantic interest that is going to define you in the long run…it’s what you invest in yourself. Have fun, yes…but, don’t see a relationship as having to be one of longevity…with children. Enjoy the road of life, don’t think of it as having an ending, happy or not.

You are way more attractive than you think you are. Don’t be shy.

Oh, and you don’t need any birth control, either :-)

Let people see who you really are. Even though David might criticize your ideas, show them to him. You have some really good ideas, and they need to get figured out completely. Oh, and spend time with Hannah. She’ll be dead soon.

Jabe73's avatar

Go to college.

Never dim your light for anyone, just because it shines bright in their eyes
