Today, I want to share with you some advice I would give my younger self. As we grow older, we gain more experience and wisdom, and we often wish we could go back in time and do things differently. While we can’t change the past, we can learn from it and use our experiences to guide us in the future. So, without further ado, I would give my younger self these 14 bits of advice. I hope they will be helpful to you too:

  1. You don’t have to have all the correct answers; you need to know the right questions.
  2. Learn to love yourself first.
  3. The answer is always ‘yes’. You need to ask the right person.
  4. Invest in yourself. 
  5. Travel as much as possible. It’s a great way to gain new experiences and perspectives.
  6. Successful people are those who took risks, failed often and learnt.
  7. If you disagree with someone’s opinion, try asking how they came to that decision. (You might gain a new perspective)
  8. Save money and invest wisely. Your future self will thank you for it.
  9. Don’t compare yourself to others; focus on your journey and progress.
  10. Take care of your physical and mental health. It’s important to prioritise self-care.
  11. Don’t settle for someone just because you’re afraid of being alone. It’s better to be single than in a bad relationship.
  12. Relationships go through seasons, and that’s ok.
  13. Having hobbies and personal interests is essential.
  14. Don’t ignore red flags. If something feels off, it probably is. 

It’s important to remember that all experiences have shaped us into who we are today. By reflecting on our past and learning from our mistakes, we can move forward confidently and make better choices for our future. I hope the advice has given you insight and inspiration on your journey.

Let me know some tips or advice you would give your younger self in the comments.

    Great advice. Yea, you! I would like to suggest one that’s for women primarily but not just… No. Is a complete sentence.

      That is another great one. I can’t believe I didn’t include it since I say that often to people
