This Is The Life-Changing Advice I Wish I Could Give My Younger Self

When your parents scold you and give you pieces of advice, don’t get angry. Instead, listen to them. They are right most of the time.

Don’t cut your hair; you’ll regret it.

Pay attention in your classes. Eventually, you’ll miss the days when your only job was to learn.

Don’t become too close to anyone. Sometimes, people will betray you. Giving them too much importance will mess up your own life.

Don’t compare yourself to your sisters, your classmates, or anyone. You’re beautiful in your own way.

Be careful with whom you share your problems. While some people don’t care, some are happy that you have them.

Beware of your tongue; it might put you in trouble.

Don’t let emotions control you. Never promise anything when you’re happy, never decide anything when you’re sad, and never reply to something when you’re angry. A decision without proper thinking can mess up your life. I’m not scaring you; just reminding you that it’s better to think before you act instead of regretting later.

Never change yourself for other people. Let them hate you, despise you, shake you, and break you ─ but never change for them. You are you; be yourself.

Many challenges are waiting for you; be strong. You’ll be hurt, but you must understand it, feel it, accept it, and learn from it.

Don’t blame anyone for your mistakes. You’re the only one responsible for your choices and decisions.

This one is very important: you’re going to meet many cute guys over the years, but don’t let their dimples and sweet words fool you. Choose someone with brains and ambition.

Lastly, stay positive and cheerful. Your life won’t be easy. You’ll get hurt and you will experience things that will mark your life, but you will make it, believe me. I’m just telling you this so you can prepare. If you’re ready for the storm, maybe your travel will be better than mine. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
