25 Things I Would Tell My Younger Self

I have learned, relearned and currently learning several things throughout my 32 years of life. There are some things that I wish I could tell my younger self. Would I have listened? I do not know but it would have been worth a shot. But not all hope is lost though. I still have a chance to turn some of these things around. I would tell my younger self:

  1. Sex does not equate love.
  2. Do not be afraid to speak your mind.
  3. Love yourself.
  4. Stuffing your face or vagina does not solve any of your problems.
  5. Do not let anyone violate you and get away with it. Tell someone!
  6. Do not be afraid to try something new.
  7. Trust your instincts.
  8. Do not conform in order to make others feel better.
  9. You are beautiful and worthy.
  10. Do not put other people’s feelings before your own. Your feelings matter too!
  11. Pick 1 major in college and stick with it.
  12. Apply for more scholarships to avoid raking up student loans.
  13. Do not make some jerk the center of your universe.
  14. Do not change yourself or stick around hoping that some jerk will love or choose you.
  15. Adopt a healthier lifestyle.
  16. Do not give your power away.
  17. When you realize it is time to let go, please let go.
  18. Avoid credit card debt.
  19. Be more confident.
  20. Do not be anyone’s flunkie!
  21. Do not hold any grudges.
  22. Do not become involved with a man who is romantically and emotionally unavailable.
  23. Do not let past mistakes or missed opportunities consume you.
  24. Become more proactive and positive. Do not give up so easily when you are depressed or frustrated.
  25. Getting help for a mood disorder should not make you feel embarrassed or less than a person.
