What do you have to tell to your younger self?

At some points of our life, we all must’ve had that wish.. to go back in time and do something which you had missed to do when you were climbing up the years. We all must’ve had some regrets, or something that you wish to correct.

We believe that Gone is gone But can you deny the fact that Past do affect your future. Not the events. Not the memories. But Past perfects your Character I believe. It makes you realise your potential, your aspirations, and moulds you for the future. So that next time, you don’t get hit by the same stone.

So here is the question that I asked myself..

What do I have to say to my younger self?”

1. Don’t fall for chocolates. They lie.

Now, believe me when I tell you this. It’s pretty serious, okay?

Chocolates are something which I can not neglect even now. But over the years, I have understood that it had become my weakness! πŸ˜… And when something becomes your weakness, you will be helpless and desperate at the same time. You will be insecure. You would never be able to control your urge to acquire that. Once you have your hands over it, ohh yeah.. you want one more! {You become greedy}. And all such sort of things!

The smart ones out there might have already figured out that it wasn’t just about chocolates that I was talking about! But those who didn’t, just never mind and stay put with the chocolate. It is better that way!

2. Do not laugh at the jokes if you don’t find them funny enough to laugh at.

Disclaimer: This isn’t about Jokes.

Do not live to impress others. In the end, life would not leave you with a medal for your “fake” emotions like: pretending to be okay when you are not okay, adjusting for someone or something when you don’t feel it being necessary., Suppressing your opinions so that others don’t feel hurt.

See, it is not about hurting others. Of course you shouldn’t hurt others intentionally (Opinions are different from arguments) and if you do, you must also have a fair explanation to help you survive the revenge that usually follows.

But that doesn’t also mean you have to shut up!

3. Accept it when you lose. Have you got any other choices?

I have faced quite a lot of jet lags from the adventures of failures that I had endured. I lost it when the failures were pathetic.

Of course, you have a supportive group of friends and family. But what if there’s no one by your side to help you in future.?

So here I am from the future, telling my younger self, one most important life lesson.

You failed? That means you have failed! So better shut up, put yourself back together and get going!

Stop moaning and accept the truth.

But that doesn’t mean you have to digest it forcefully. You could just spill it out as well and move on. Just don’t let it be clingy.

4. Do not let anyone else write your book for you.

Very often, you might have a tendency to give your pen to others and let them scribble in your “book”.

And in the end, believe me, it always turns out to not be the way you wanted your book to be like.

However, the pages of the book (which you will understand it is “life”), can never be torn down nor could be erased. That’s why this book is different and special.

You are the key to the lock of your future. Dare not to let others try. Because in the end, the lock belongs to only you!

5. Let it go.

I read somewhere that, “sometimes holding on to something gives you much more pain that letting it go
But often you may not be ready to let go. And I understand.
But let me tell you now.

This doesn’t mean you are incapable. Or you are a coward. But instead you are being careful for yourself. Afterall, why would you take the risk of hurting yourself?

As I said in the beginning, there are somethings of our past, that some of us might want to correct or relive or perhaps bring a little twist to. Why do we think like that?

Because we are now aware. We are much experienced. As each second passes, there are some things that you learn. Every second may gift you a happy moment, or a sad one, exciting or a boring one. Nonetheless, they are the pages of a book that you can never turn back again as you swish past it.

Isn’t it the beauty of it?

  1. Those are really great things to say to your younger self… and really similar to the things I would say πŸ˜‰
    I guess it’s also all really summed up in this : Don’t be too hard on yourself!
    Because from youth, right through long into our adult lives, we all have a tendency to be a little too hard on ourselves.
    There are enough critics in this world, and we not only need to not be one of them towards the world out there – we need to be extra kind to ourselves too πŸ˜‰

    Great blog post! πŸ™‚

  2. It’s a really good post . It’s like when something goes wrong we trace back to the time when it all started and just tell ourselves ‘ oh how I wish I good tell myself not to ‘ but the sad truth is we can’t. I once badly hurt my best friend when I was really young (I was very immature back then) and later on I regretted it and I couldn’t mend it but that experience had a deep impression on me . So what I would like to tell my younger self is to cherish the people around me as well as cherish myself. Plus I really loved this post , Aathmana.

    1. Exactly! I don’t think we will make the same mistakes again. Moreover in my opinion, mistakes and our past perfects us!!
      It’s a good advice for your younger self.
      Thank you so much!! πŸ˜ƒ
