What if you could go back, with what you know now, and give your past self a message?

What would you tell yourself for next time around?

What would your one piece of advice to your past self be?



  1. VaughnGreen says:

    Never waste a moment seeking the approval of older or seemingly smarter people. Every individual can impact on your life, bur do not let anyone sway you from your ultimate goal, whatever you decide that may be. Good luck.

  2. Donna says:

    Speak up, don’ be such a door mat. Be nice less often. Do what makes you happy. Have more fun.

  3. Simon says:

    Be yourself, trust your instincts, believe in yourself and do what you love rather than what others expect you to do. It took me more than 30 years to work that out. Oh and riding a bike down a steep dirt track at full speed wearing only shorts and a t-shirt when you are 7 is a bad idea.

  4. Clara says:

    Don’t be afraid to do you. Be what you want, because no one else will.
