    Default What would you tell 16 year old you

    If you had a quantum leap moment and got to go back and see yourself at 16 what advice would you give yourself? Mine would be , work harder at school find ways for it to not bore you and that guy you think you're in love with you're not, your first love will come along when you're older when you least expect it and this guy is a massive tool so forget him. Also treasure the time you have with Mum and Dad because they won't be here forever

    Having been so painfully self conscious for far too long, I'd tell myself to stuff what everyone else thinks & believe in myself. Go to uni! To enjoy the people that mean the most to me. Oh & to drink less!

    That it's OK to make mistakes. It's HEALTHY to make mistakes. You do not have to be perfect, so throw off any expectations of perfection that are cast upon you by others. Be gracious with both yourself and others.

    That parents don't always know everything and you would have been better off not going back home.

    Stay in school and don't believe your parents and the careers counsellor that all said your dream was unreachable.

    The guy you just met is amazing, don't doubt him.
    I met DH when I was 16 and spent the first couple of years doubting a lot of what he thought we could do. Once I stopped, we started chasing our dreams and haven't looked back

    Don't hold on to negative friendships and open your heart to meeting new people.

    That your brother is narcissistic and he's only being nice to you when it benefits him. DO NOT go into business with him. That piece of advise would have saved me lots of heartache and about $50k

    Go home and let your parents take care of you for a bit longer.

    You are prettier and smarter than you believe.
    You are not fat.
    Believe in yourself - trust your gut instinct
    Take more risks
    Don't sunbake in the back yard - you will just end up with freckles and moles
    It is okay to say no
    If you aren't happy at uni, it is okay to swap courses
    Don't stay in a relationship you aren't happy in
    Don't worry about what anyone else thinks
    If you are engaged to someone and and are having doubts, leave (see the above two points)
    Travel overseas when you want
    Do not get your hair permed

    Love that last one ❤️
    Look, I agree - I'd say be confident and believe in yourself.
    Chase your dreams to become a model, writer and TV presenter. Your skin will clear up and you'll glow with good health.
    Give boys a chance and don't run from every single one that looks your way.
    Believe what every single guy said to you - you are beautiful, acne and all.
    Work hard and make money. Forget school. Most people get into uni anyway.
    Keep good friends forever in your life - make every effort to do this, as they are the ones who will cherish you in the future.
    Travel the ****ing world! Two years minimum.
    You're allowed to get pregnant once you've travelled and have a good, reliable career path... but make sure it's to a guy who can at least communicate with you for the next 18 years 😕
