Time for a reflection. If somehow he or she can be certain that the message comes from you. And you can only do it once, what would you say?

I have to emphasize that this isn't about time travel, so let's not discuss those time travel theories/paradox.

Oh yeah one more thing, no stock tips, lottery numbers etc, etc. Thanks

Wow! That question brings up so many things I could do differently, as I am sure anyone would agree.

I think I would tell myself not to listen to anyone.

I have a couple of things I would tell my younger self.

1) "Don't always take the fork in the road that looks like the easier way."

2) "Stay away from that guy, he's no good for you!"

I hear you loud and clear on that one..but I tend to look at it this way:
I would have had children no matter what, and would have loved them no matter the father I chose.
This sounds awful when I write it but it's true..had they not come into existence, I would not have known them to miss them. God that sounds terrible but true.
My kids have been 100% raised by me, and his only contribution was biological, so they are far more like me than him.I have raised them the best of my ability and thank goodness, my teens did not make the same mistakes that I did.
I actually did something right.

Don't stop working out and start riding your bike everyday, (I stopped for about 10 years working 2 jobs), and cut back on the jogging it's not good for your joints.

Oh, and that time I was living with two girls...

I will tell myself to go screw myself. And give myself a new car because when I was younger I was driving a piece of trash car.

Wow! He's a mirror image of you when you were young.


Back on topic, I'd tell myself to go straight to college after high school instead of taking a "year" off. One year turns into two and the next thing you know you're 25 and just finishing a two year degree after four years of classes. Oh, and that guy when you were 16? Forget it, don't even go there, definitely not worth the heartache or the hassle. Just turn around and walk away.

Of course I probably wouldn't even listen to myself.

Great thread / question.

I would hope that I could have a discussion with my youger self. Not just have to say one thing and go. That being said:

I'd would go back to when I was very young, around 7-8 years old and tell myself that the "ufo" that I witnessed was something and I should start investigating it.

I would tell me, don't fall in love to easily, it would end up saving me a lot of heartache.

I would tell me to listen to my parents, they're right about a lot of things.

I would tell me to do better in school, play sports and go to college.

I would tell me be kind to the other kids at school, don't jump on the bandwagon just to try to look cool, by picking on others.

I would tell me to stand up to the bullies, they're nothing and Im not afraid of them no matter what.

I would tell me to travel to NW Ohio when I'm about 16, look for "her", love her and love her alone and give her all the things she desereved as a teen, young adult and beautiful woman.

I never lie.

Sarah and Joan. Decorum prevents me from bragging; too much.

Good times for a whole year.

Perhaps this guy could take a few hints from himself:

I would tell my younger self, self, stop being so sensitive. It will literally ruin your life if you don't control it better.
