    That's a tough one. Every action has a result, some good and some bad. I might have told my younger self to go into teaching as originally planned but then I had so much fun in radio sales for a very long time. Now, I'm 52 and in my fifth year of teaching; I'm a long way from retiring but wouldn't want to anyway, because I love what I do. I could also tell my younger self to watch who I married (because after 18 years, we split) but we have a beautiful daughter and even with the bad, had many good times. The one thing I might have told my self was in renting a condo.....Younger self, hire a management company to do this for you. Many things may have been different (financially, stress, etc) I would have told myself to spend more time with my parents that first year of teaching (I thought I'd have the summer but both passed away before then). Other than that, I've always enjoyed the little things and have tried to do the best I can.

    It would have been a lot before my kids were born. Now I couldn't tell myself anything because I'd risk their existence. Whatever dumbass stuff I did...it worked cause they're here and they're awesome!

    Don't slack off in school so you can be a physicist. You're gonna be really interested in it when you get older.

    Always take three days to make an important decision (except when an emergency).

    Never make a decision when on the rebound. Heal from that first, and then move on...

    When you feel like no one cares, you are wrong. Someone does. Don't be afraid to seek them out.

    The "Golden Rule" is NOT "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." It is, instead, "Do NOT do to others what you do not want done to you."

    If you take care of yourself, everything else will fall into place. You cannot take care of others or love others unless you first do that for yourself.

    If you walk down that aisle to get married and as you are doing so you hear this little voice that tells you not to do it, listen to that voice. Turn around and walk away. I don't care how much you've spent on the wedding.

    Why were you so stupid ?

    Stop wasting time with men who cannot or will not be good to you or right for you.

    Focus on what you would be best utilized at and gain most satisfaction from doing.

    Prepare for a financially stable future.

    Men do not have to like someone to sleep with them. Love and sex are not connected for men. Sex does not mean a guy likes you.

    Buy Microsoft at its IPO.

    Then buy a MAC.

    Spend less on 'junk' (i.e. anything that's worth less than what you paid for it immediately after you pay for it).

    Anyone who says, "Shall I super-size that for you?" is not your friend.

    Put your brain in gear before you engage your mouth. (Teller's Corollary: It's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're an idiot than open it and remove all doubt.)
    Stated another way: Save it in the 'Drafts' folder for 24 hrs, then re-read it before you hit 'Send'.

    Depends on the age...
    Most of the time I'd just leave me alone and let things go as they did.
    But at ages 19 through 22 I'd say.. "it's worth it , just plow on through it all and it will be worth it later, not for a LONG time, but it will.. I promise".

    I would listen more to others, i would not have taken their advice all the time, but would have thought more about it.
