If you could tell your younger self one thing... what would it be?
Growing up is something we all do, and when we look back on our childhood we think about all the things we could have told our younger selves... if you could say one thing to your younger self, what would it be?
this is what I would say "forget about all the rules once in a while, its okay to let go"
Interesting question. Something I still struggle with from time to time but more when I was younger... I would tell my younger self to "stop worrying what other people think about you".
When you're young, especially in school, you can easily lose a sense of identity by fitting in with groups/people who you wouldn't normally associate with. It makes things easier, and more enjoyable no doubt, but isn't really beneficial in the long term. Feel free to take the best bits from those around you, but ultimately be like you.
if I have one younger sister or brother, I would say, study hard, go to Singapore and get a job, earned double money and don't ever come back to our country. Be a successful person, don't work like a slave ( I did )
I would have told myself to start writing when I was younger. I realized it to late.
"Get the graphic design degree", that is what I would tell myself. I love creative writing, but having a degree in it is useless. I could have still written books while working a cushy graphic design job. Instead I'm stuck in public service until one of my books can take off. I try not to be bitter about it, but the phrase 'don't quit your day job' chills me to the core.
I have done this to heal myself and so I went back to what is hurting in me and I tell myself that it is okay now. The more I heal what is hurting in me because of childhood experiences the better person I become.
I would tell my younger self to listen to my parents more because what they were telling me was actually good advice and they were not saying it to just annoy me! I now find myself telling my children the same things that my parents told me when I was young.
"Stand up for yourself. Don't be afraid to face your fears. Don't be afraid of anyone. Pursue the path you want to. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise."
I will tell Enjoy your life stages. Do not wish to grow up quickly. Because we grow old when we started to take responsibility. Will tell you that the interest on the steps of scientific distinctive. Cared to listen to the advice of the parents. In fact, I wish I could go back a kid once again

What would you write to your younger self? What could have improved your life?Go back ten or twenty years ago and picture yourself back then. What letter would you write to yourself, using the knowledge and wisdom you own now, to make an essential difference to your life and the lives of others...

As we get older, we have (hopefully) become wiser and learned many life lessons. We made some mistakes and endured some pitfalls in our respective youth. However, we moved on. If you had something to say to your younger self, what would it be?
