25 Things I Wish My Younger Self Would Have Known

When I get time to slow down and think about life, it’s crazy to realize that I am going to be 23 soon. I remember being a little girl and couldn’t wait to be an adult. My cousin and I were always talking what we would do when we were all grown up. However, now that I look back, I know I’ve made mistakes and wish I could have enjoyed the time more. I was always worrying about the future and planning for the next step. Here’s my life advice to you that I wish I would have known when I was younger.

    I would have to agree that childhood flies by without warning. One thing I wish I had known was that you have a right to disagree with others’ beliefs/opinions. I was always trying to persuade myself that their beliefs were right while mine were wrong. While growing up, I acquired knowledge, therefore having the power to have a different outlook that eventually let me be the person I was supposed to be all along.
