High School Or College?

What Advice Would You Give Your Past Self?

Imagine you could communicate with a younger version of yourself. What age would you choose, and what advice would you give you past self?

After dealing with the pandemic for nearly a year, it might be tempting to give a little heads up to yourself as you are going in to lockdown. Would you suggest stocking up on toilet paper? Get used to wearing a mask? Hug your loved ones while you can?

On the other hand, an older, and presumably wiser, you might talk to  a teenage version of yourself. Would you suggest learning a particular skill? Maybe having a certain experience? Or perhaps avoiding a certain experience?

Alternately, you might have something to say to you as you enter the workforce. Or some advice on your wedding day. Or when your child is about to be born.

What age would you choose, and what would you say?

Finally, is there anything that your present self can learn from what you would like to tell your younger self?
