What’s your advice to your 10 years ago self?
Every once in a while, we all look back at our lives and reminisce about the good and bad times. We think about everything that we could have, and should have done differently.
Remember the 10 year challenge? On Twitter, something similar to that is trending. It’s #DearMeTenYearsAgo. This trend started on Reddit and is now in full swing on Twitter. Looking through these tweets honestly gave me chills because these pieces of advice are definitely something I can use at the moment.
People are sharing some very interesting advice they would give their own self 10 years ago
Your writing gets better.
You'll get better at handling stress.
Your migraines will decrease.
You'll come out as genderfluid, & it will be freeing & amazing.
You'll meet so many amazing creatives on Twitter, once you start using it more.
You will make it. pic.twitter.com/cOMGMm5xYX

Gonna do a Twitter thing#DearMeTenYearsAgo
Keep being a badass. You only get cooler from here. Don't second guess how awesome you are (not like you ever do)
Remember, if you dont at least do a year of college, you'll never realize how useless it is.

The perspective that just a decade more experience in life gives you is valuable and these people are helping others learn from their own selves
You're going to face too much too soon, just don't build up insecurities, don't let the walls get too high that you stop trusting, and when times get better, you've lost all hopes in heartful happiness.
Most of all, embrace your perfect imperfections.

#DearMeTenYearsAgo you'd have killed to be where you are right now.& knowing what you know, you could've avoided a shit ton of heartbreak also. But would you have been here w/o it?
(Heading towards something probably amaze in the near future, Twitterverse, send duas/achi vibes)

How easy would things be if we could actually travel back in time and change a couple of things??
SO many people were all about investing
Financial security is a big deal for our generation and no one really taught us about it.

1. Invest HEAVILY in Twitter.
2. Buy a controlling share in it.
3. BAN @realDonaldTrump from using Twitter FOREVER, just before he starts with the racist Birtherism claims.
4. Hello Madame President.

Yaaas, get that dough.
Okay, now let’s get back to the heartfelt sappy ones
#DearMeTenYearsAgo it'll get better. then it'll get worse. eventually you'd learn to live with it. (also kam enrique Iglesias suna kar bro koi faida nahi hai)

#DearMeTenYearsAgo You're not going to be where you wanted to be. But you're where you need to be. You're going to go through a lot, but it will make you stronger. You'll form bonds that will be unbreakable. You'll find the voice you longed to have.

#DearMeTenYearsAgo everything you stress over will seem trivial in 10 years because you'll have bigger things to worry about lol but life will get much better. Also, Imran Khan will be the PM and Nawaz Sharif will be in jail so go easy on that Facebook campaign 🤣
