Advice to Your Teenage Self

Advice to Your Teenage Self

DancerKittyKat DancerKittyKat
If you could give one piece of advice to your teenage self, what would it be?

I would want to tell myself, "Don't give up on opportunities just because they scare you!" So many times, I would stop myself from trying something new for fear of failure. I wish I could tell my teenage self that perfection doesn't exist, so just strive to be more adventurous!

I would say, " Don't try so hard to be successful." Enjoy that age while you can." Don't be in such a rush to make it." "Enjoy life while you can."

That's great advice! That applies at any age, not just for teenagers!

Lol, I remember something my mom told me when I was a teen. "Don't tell her you love her." That was my first steady gf.

All I could think of was

I guess moms wasn't fond of her.

I'd tell my younger self a couple of things. First I'd tell myself not to worry about meeting the right girl, in time, she will find you. Then I'd tell myself that not everyone is having earthshattering, bed clinging, neighbor annoying, mind numbing sex. Sex is actually kinda gross. Finally, I'd tell myself, work on yourself first. Get where you want to be or at least closer to those goals and you will be content.

I would tell my younger self to just let loose. To live. To make mistakes... Lots of mistakes! Sing out loud and don't be shy. Being cool is overrated anyways

Well, we all know teenagers DON'T listen lol. So, that being said, I would start there. I would suck it up and say, yes, mom & dad do actually know a thing or two so stop giving them such a hard time arguing over everything. Then, I would tell my teenage self, nobody's opinion truly matters but your own so stop worrying so much about what others think. Don't be afraid to try new things. Especially, things that might scare you. Don't be afraid to fail. Stop worrying so much about finding Mr Right. He's out there--you can totally relax and have fun. Last but not least, enjoy being a kid because it's very short lived!

Great answer! I get that in middle school and high school, we are trying to establish independence. However, I agree, there is no reason to give parents such a hard time. Most parents only want what's best for us!

Id have to tell my younger self to pay more attention in school and make better grades than I did and pay a lil less attention to the girls even tho it would be hard to do and to enjoy that age of life and make the best of it

I would tell my teenage self to work hard for better grades,you are smarter than you know. And don't be shy, get out and mix you never know who you will meet, don't be desperate.

I'd like to tell my younger self to have more self confidence around people. There are so few things I regret in my life outside not having confidence in myself to risk asking a girl out as assuming before I tried that I would be shot down or wasn't good enough for her anyway.

Now that I've been in relationships I realize how the gains outweigh the risk, and if you don't risk asking you'll never know if something can come out of it beyond just friendship.
