I don’t think there are any details for this one.

One thing I’ve noticed is that as I evolve, my current self usually thinks that my past self was a pitiable joke.

Tous les jours à tous points de vue je vais de mieux en mieux.

He’ll probably sigh and try to recall where it went so horribly, horribly wrong.

No, seriously, I’ll probably wonder why I put up with shit just for the sake of being nice, and why I didn’t get my driver’s permit a little earlier.

My future self will probably dislike my current self. Or possibly feel extremely jealous, but I hope not.

Considering my current self is quite fond of my past self,
I imagine my future self will be quite fond of my current self.

Do the dead feel?

DeanV's avatar

As I’ve grown up I’ve almost always tended to think that the me five years ago was an obnoxious, insecure little shit. Whether I actually was or not was up to the people I hung out with, I guess.

Bemused.

edit: This gets my vote for best question I’ve ever read/contemplated on Fluther.

SABOTEUR's avatar

@FutureMemory Bemused. I like that.

My future self would think that my current self is an ass :O

I’m old so I already dislike what I was. I will probably feel the same in another ten years. I fuck-up, everyone does. But I am proud of myself for learning from my mistakes and hopefully not repeating them.

She did alright, given the circumstances.

I’m in a benevolent mood with myself today

As I lay there, various tubes, monitors, and pumps keeping my destroyed internal organs working, I will probably think that I was quite the selfish, self-centered dick for not doing anything about what future damage my excessive vices would cause.

I can also see a bit of bitter fondness. For all my faults, I still possess a certain vulgarian charm. I am quite a scallywag, now.

Too early to tell.

I think I’ll refrain from passing judgement on my current self for this particular time period because, once out of my current situation, I’ll never understand the emotions I’ve been having lately ever again.

Well if she ain’t dead or insane by then, she’d be either extremely disappointed.

Probably for the same reasons that I’m ashamed of myself now, @nikipedia.

augustlan's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf From what I know of you, you’ve got nothing to be ashamed about. <3

As for me, I’m really pleased at where I am in life right now. I hope the future me will see this time in the same way.

He’d be pretty impressed with how far he’s come.

We always have respect for what came before, for our parents and their parents and similarly for ourselves when young as these are our roots and tell us what we are. This is how I feel today and how I will feel tomorrow.

Selfish, risky, brute. I will definitely be more gentle when I am older, because by then, I would have earned a living.
