30 Things People Wish They Could Tell Their Younger Selves

While being young, we’ll keep making wrong choices every now and then. It’s inevitable unless you’re doing nothing and experiencing nothing new. It’s okay to make mistakes, it’s how we learn and how we grow even though, we often regret some of it. Below is a list I liked from dearyoungme.com and wanted to share with you of things people posted online that they wish they could tell their younger self. You can consider it while you’re still young enough not to make the same mistakes people made before and regretted: 

1- Do not hurt the one you love. It only takes a few seconds to break someone's heart, but it takes years to mend it.

2- Don't get a credit card.

3- Don't get married just to be with someone. Be happy with that someone first...

Being happy is more important than being successful.

4- Don't be afraid to be yourself, the right people will love you for being exactly that.

5- Spend time with your parents and be good to them. You really will miss them when they're gone.

6- Saying "I love you" is not a sign of weakness. Say it proud, say it often.

7- I promise you, having sex with him won't make him love you. Don't give yourself away so freely. You're worth more than that.

8- Don't text and drive.

9- Read as many good books as you can.

10- Don't change. What the world calls maturity is actually bitterness. Worrying about grown up stuff shows up at your door much sooner than your ready for.

11- Don't beat yourself up or regret life because of the mistakes you've made, because you will learn and move on. I promise.

12- You can't fix everything, but almost everything can fix itself if it's given time.

13- Stay a kid as long as you can. Life is not a race. Life is a lesson.

14- The number of Facebook notifications you receive does not reflex your importance in the world.

15- If you listen, your parents will give you some great advice sometimes. Don't waste it.

16- Don't chase a guy who won't chase you back.

17- It's not shaming to ask for help, you are not as alone as you think.

18- Don't sleep with every guy that tells you you're pretty.

19- Skip the bad boy. The good one is so much better.

20- Please stop counting calories and skipping meals. You are young and beautiful.

21- You are not as fat as you think you are.

22- Your mother knows a lot more about life than you think. Take her advice.

23- Be yourself. Don't be what you think people want you to be.

24- Don't start drinking, or smoking. These things lead to about 85% of the conflicts between you and your world.

25- Stop wasting your time looking for someone to love you, love yourself and that's all you really need.

26- If he doesn't treat you right, walk away.

27- Just because he was your first love, doesn't mean you can never love again.

28- Take the time to teach your children how to do things, instead of just doing them yourself.

29- Don't be discouraged if you don't get married and have kids right out of college just because everyone else does! Enjoy your single life and make the most of it!

30- You are beautiful, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
