If you could go back and give yourself advice at 16, what would it be?
Now, that you know more than you did at 16 and life has taken you for turns and loops. Would that advice be something simple, easy or something to change your life.
Being popular isn't important. Smoking isn't cool. You don't need a boyfriend.
Don't worry about what others think about what you do, or say, or look like.
People will either except you for who you are and not for the things you have, and if they don't then they weren't really your friends in the first place. Be wise when you choose to select the people you hang with. Some of them will fool you!
Don't worry about anything because it just gets better, things will get bad for a while, but overall everything will be better...Oh and get over that girl you fancy because as it turns out in the end, she's gay. She'll hide these feelings from you for years, and then confess to you when you meet up a year after breaking up. You'll have other girlfriends later on life who'll break your heart with a chainsaw but there'll be a lot of fun times....Get over about settling down sooner and have more fun cos I've just about made up for lost time because of you. you're 16! stop mooching and be happy!
Keep making all the mistakes you're making; it's ok. They are building you up for a better future. But stop smoking now! life gets easier, but giving up those dirty things only gets harder!
That girls are there for the taking and they're just as frightened of you and rejection as you are of them and rejection.
thats a hard one, because even though i have been through many turns and loops in my life i dont regret any of it because those turns and loops made me who i am today...... so with this being said it would just have to be something simple. "Don't get married or have kids untill i finish college and earn the degree that i want!
I made a lot of mistakes as a teen - but I would go back and thank my teenage self, because without all the hard times "she" went through, I would not have grown into what I've become. I would go back and say "thanks" and "love and value yourself more - because there weren't truly mistakes made - just lessons learned".
Instead of being careful to not make mistakes, try everything and learn how to handle making mistakes. Stop being accountable for everything you do and explaining yourself. Be nicer but stop assuming so much responsibility. And one more thing, kid: find something you really want to do, even if the pay is crappy.
Sleep less, fear nothing, ask questions, go to college, delay marriage, listen to your parents, plan for the future, remember everything...............
Listen to your inner voice and find out what it tries to tell you.
Don't allow the voices of other people to drown out this inner voice, find your own way.
Let how you feel be your guide, use the leverage that being happy brings you.
1- Should have fallen in LOVE at 16
2- Should have chosen Film and Media over Business studies
3- Should have found HubPages....... LoL.
Without question, I would tell myself to not by the house. It will be worth it in the long run to wait.
I would most definitely avoid some relationships! But this is human nature isn't it - and at least we can learn from our mistakes. I would also make sure that I only cared about what important people thought of me - and ignore those whose opinions don't matter. I would have saved even $20 a week since I started working and I would not have bought a cheap car which ended up being more trouble than it was worth! I guess this is why parents have so much advice for their own children - they see it as a chance to protect them from the mistakes they made. But children rarely listen - hence what I said about human nature! Great, thought provoking question!
dont settle,.... dont be afraid.... dont pull punches,... and loose your temper every now and then.
Don't worry about it, just kiss her. You are not going to get another chance.
I would say, "Don't get serious about a guy and give up an education for marriage. You will regret the fact that you didn't go to college, especially when he passes away halfway through your life together. Then you will have 2 children to raise on a job that pays a little more than minimum wage. Then you will have to work two jobs and try to go to college part time to make ends meet. You will find Hubpages and hope it is an answer to some of your worries." Thanks for asking this question. I feel much better! LOL
If I could go back I would say to myself that always value the time and opportunities.
Time doesn't come again.
