10 Things You Can Learn from Your Future Self

What would you tell your younger self?

If you could go back in time to any point in your life, what would you tell your younger self? Here's a list of things to think about:

1. You could be always be kinder.
Being mean is just not cool, and it’s futile to use up all your energy on something so pointless. Hold on to your patience, even if others keep testing your limits—this will say more about them than about you.

2. You don’t have to please everyone.
Know that you’re not really accomplishing anything substantial by constantly trying to fit in, and that people don’t really care as much as you think they do.

3. Work hard...
If you commit to something, always give it your best shot—whether it’s a school project or a presentation for work. You never know whom you might blow away with your efforts.

4. But make the time to relax.
Aim for a manageable work-life balance. If you’re drowning in work or acads, spare a few hours every now and then to unwind with your loved ones over a good meal or some drinks.

5. Invest wisely.
Don’t splurge on something just because it’s fresh off the market and prioritize only the things that you need. Save every spare peso on hand--you’ll be grateful for your nest egg if something untoward happens.

6. Tell the people you love how much they matter to you.
Life is short, and the constants in your life won’t always be there for you. Never miss an opportunity to let your loved ones know just how much you appreciate their presence in your life. It's a simple act, but it conveys so much.

7. Your broken heart will heal.
Relationships don't always work out. It’s going to be very painful, but you’ll be able to get over your lost love. Give yourself some time, and keep yourself busy. Before you know it, they’ll just be another fuzzy memory.

8. Map out your life.
Having a concrete goal makes it a bit easier to know what your next step should be. You don’t have to be super precise about it--find out how you ideally want to live your life, and work to make your dreams a reality.

9. Sometimes, even the best plans fall apart.
There will be times when things don’t follow the direction you want them to go. That’s called Murphy’s Law, and it’s a given in this world. Think fast, be resourceful, learn from your mistakes, and go with the flow.

10. But everything will work out in the end.
Life has a way of steering you towards a different direction, and that's okay. Soak up all the knowledge you can get from your little detour, and make the most out of your experiences.
