  2. My advice to my younger self:
    Study hard and focus to your dream. Love what you have right now. Dont rush things because eventually things happen in the right time. Chase your dream and move for bright future. Help your family. Always look where you came from. Dont forget to put your feet on the ground

    My advise to my younger self is to believe in yourself. Be confident and don't mind the other people around you. Do not get discouraged by what other people will say. Be yourself and be proud of who you are, what you want and what you want to be. Do not be afraid to be judged, no matter how good and kind you are, there will still people who will judge you, might as well do things that you love and enjoy.

    The most important advice that I would give my younger self is to spend money wisely. Yes, we have to live our life to the fullest and enjoy every moment of it while we can because we can never go back in the past but we can always enjoy our life without spending too much. We have to balance everything in our daily life to be able to achieve more in the near future. What good does it gets if we waste our money for temporary happiness without saving some for the times ahead of us? Always remember that true happiness can be achieved if we live our life without having any regrets in the future.

    If I could go back I'd tell myself not to worry so much about what other people thought of me and to put more effort into schooling instead of doing the bare minimum to get by. I'd also tell myself to spend more time with my grandparents cause they were gone too soon.

    The best advice I could give to my younger self is to dream big but to work also on dreams. First, she should not lose idealism even though she should also keep her feet on the concrete, solid ground. Dreams should be made worthwhile and relevant. Moreover, practicality should also be given importance over sentimentality. Financial security can be attained even though resources are meager and opportunities rare. Daydreaming may also buffer one from the hard knocks of life, but actual working and doing is more beneficial.

    If I could give my younger self a pice of advise, I will tell her to pursue what she really wanted to be. Do not be afraid to try and take risk. Do not fall in love quickly because it may hinder your success.

    Don't be so risk taker. You must restrict your self a little bit or else you will regret it. Don't give everything to one person, there will be that right person who will love you endlessly and you will regret not giving him your all. Don't be so hard on your self, everything will pass and time will heal you. Don't be so pessimistic, we may never know what the future is but it will be nice to always look forward to the positive sid. Love endlessly, God will always guide you.

    If I will give myself one piece of advice, I would say that I will follow and apply the truth in the bible I learned and pray to God to help me and give me strength to stay strong to fulfill my purpose in this life.

    Be honest with what you want in life. Don't let others decide for you and don't what you don't want to do. Live your life and be all that you can be and do all that you can do. It is better than living a life of regret and thinking of things that could have been. That is what I would say.

    I would tell myself that I should get up, and get things done. I believe procrastination is my biggest problem, and would have lead to my utter downfall without me just getting up and doing what I need to do. It's quite simple, but quite powerful. I could only hope that my younger self would have gotten it. It's not about what my life is like, I could be struggling, people could hate me, but that shouldn't stop myself from getting up, and doing what must be done.

    If I only have a time machine and have a chance to talk to my younger self, I would tell her to stop seeing herself as a small, not incapable of doing things. When I grew up I regret the things that I didn’t do just because I’m too shy and afraid. I lost all of the opportunities I had before, I got my self-confidence and self-esteem lock in a cage, because of being afraid of what other people might think of me.
    I lost my confidence because I see all people around me that they’re more capable of doing great things, smarter or talented than me, but as time passed by I realized that I can do so much better of what I think of myself, because life is not about finding what or who you wanted to be.
    The reality is that life is all about creating the best version of yourself. No matter how challenging and competitive the world can be, it is your choice and action that matters the most, it’s all about creating your story and fulfilling the pages of your own book.

    To be more patient with myself. I know that there is still always room to grow, not a single person is perfect. I would tell myself there’s almost no point in being hard on myself as long as I know the flaws in my actions, I ca only get better moving forward. Mistakes help people grow as people.

    My Advice would be:
    Study hard, focus on what you want to do, not what others think that you should do.
    Stop caring what others think of you, they do not walk your steps, they do not know your life.
    Boys are a distraction :rolling::cool:
    Say no to the things that you do not want to do. It is ok and will be ok.

    I would tell my younger self to be brave. I would tell her not to cry all the time. I would tell her to stand up for herself and that she is beautiful. I would tell her to love herself.

    If I could give a younger me advice, it would be: Happiness first. I've been struggling for year with depression because I put my work first, others first, everything first before my happiness. No amount of money or prestige is worth sacrificing your happiness, and to an extent, relationships aren't worth doing that either.

    Yes, happiness is a choice, don't let other people convince you otherwise. Don't walk around with a chip on your shoulder. It does more harm to you than to others. Save money. Nobody's going to remember those expensive shoes you only wore twice, the brand of makeup you wore, the labels on your clothes, and neither will you. The future is unpredictable. You're going to make mistakes. Everyone does. Learn from them and move on. Don't dwell on failures. Don't compare yourself to others. Wish others well. There is enough sunshine for everybody.

    The only thing I will advice on my younger age was staying myself hydrated and just focus on your goals in life. Nowadays I've found myself being drained and losing hope in everything. So if I have given a chance to talk with my younger age, I will definitely hug her to remind her to justo go on in life and never give up.

    My advice for young people is to complete their education before they get married. Keep a healthy lifestyle. Go to work. Start family when they ready.
