I would tell myself to listen to your inner voice and do and follow the things I love to do.  Try very hard to be fearless and realize that the most successful people on this planet failed more than once and learned very valuable lessons from failure to succeed in their desired goal. Judge no one because that person can be you someday.  Love everyone but pray for those who you know are angry inside.  Everyone is a child at heart they just might look older and wiser because we all age.  Never believe anyone who puts you down for any reason because it is usually out of jealousy so move on the sooner the better.  Make an all-out effort to find positive friends at a young age, especially those that make you laugh because they will carry you throughout your life and they will be extra special because they are not a relative.  Above all, the greatest gift you can give is life and a sibling or siblings to go with that first child.  Family is so important especially as you age and I believe everyone has learned or figured out how true this has been during the Covid epidemic. Finally, your health is your wealth, all the money in the world can’t fix certain medical issues so take good care of that vehicle you are in with nourishment, learning and physical closeness.

I would tell myself to not go beyond needed with physical tasks! I am tall and thin, always underestimated, and always barrel through what I must, hurting myself long term (I see now) mostly for the sake of others. I still do it and really need to knock it off! lol Empath woes.

Be true to yourself. Don’t forget about you. Only you can take care of and do what’s best for you and your needs. Don’t put everyone and everything else first.

Truth! Self care is something I am still learning to do honestly.
