6 Pieces Of Advice For My Future Self

  1. Stop apologizing all the time. Sure, say sorry if you messed up. But if you haven’t, you don’t need to beg for anyone’s forgiveness.
  2. Aim for comprehension, not completion. It isn’t always enough to do an assignment if you don’t understand anything.
  3. Do what you want to do. Within reason of course. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I don’t want to do certain things.
  4. Don’t be afraid to change your ways. Especially if something isn’t working. I’m so stubborn. I’ll stick to old habits and routines even if I know there’s a better way. I’m allowed to grow. I’m supposed to.
  5. Never try to do everything. Pick and choose wisely. There isn’t enough time to do it all.
  6. You’re human. Your body needs adequate rest, proper nutrition, frequent exercise. If I take care of my health, other areas of my life seem to work out. I am trying to be more aware of my body and mind. I’m listening more. I’m learning too. I may not be perfect, but I try to get better. Which is all that matters.

  1. I know ‘if onlys’ are futile. Nonetheless, reading this made me think if only I’d had your outlook on life when I was your age….though I have to say I still love my life, too! 🙂
