If you could meet yourself at the age of ten, what would you tell him/her?

I don't know what I would say. This scenario always makes me start crying. Life has been pretty rough for me, and I feel exhausted. I miss those younger days, when I had dreams and confidence. I guess I would tell him to cherish that, hold to it as long as you can. Don't give up on finding happiness.

@AbbySvenz I want to change my answer to lotto numbers too. That was a great idea.
@Onestarlitnight I had one of those cheap $10 box safes with the numbered combonation dials you could buy at Kmart back in the day, I would have kept it in there, along with which particular date to use it on.

I'd tell her what social services is and how to call and that she would need it and should use it when she would need it in a couple years time. That she would know when it was bad enough to need outside help. And I would tell her that she can't shoulder all the responsibility, that I can't save or change someone who is abusive. That I won't be able to protect myself. And that I shouldn't keep some secrets, and what abuse is... and that It's not my fault.

It's okay, you'll live, I can't tell you things will get better because they won't, you're gonna suffer you're gonna cry yourself to sleep, you'll learn to only rely on yourself and then ask yourself if it was worth it's not..... but there's gonna be these little happy moments here and there, I guess that's life and you might like it.

I would tell her to enjoy every moment she could with her parents and don't even think about that neighbor down the street in her teenage years, complete that novel and submit it and don't put anyone's hopes and dreams before her own.
Don't write love letters to people who aren't your friend and don't ignorantly date strangers who are actually married and don't bother to tell you.. don't collect so many clothes.. don't be an internet hoe. Don't try to dress like a model. Dress conservatively (non provocatively) don't tell 20 guys online that you are in love with them 😅🙄

In other words girl.. don't be a moron.. and don't sit around watching tv and eating pizza and burgers. And don't leave your dog in the car in the summer.. don't invest in scam get rich programs. Don't quit work because its annoying and you think you don't need the money.. you might need money someday 🙄

I would probably tell myself not to let the grownups convince you that being loved means letting them hurt you and that them hurting you normal.. that every family has its problems and you’re just too sensitive. As you grow up, spend most of your time in the places that are safe with the people that are safe. Someday you’ll grow up and move far away from all of it. Love and peaceful and feels like home. Someday you’ll find, make home..

Don't be afraid to take chances and push your limits

@OldMan70 guess it depends on who you ask I love sex as much as the next person but it shouldn't be the only focus
But how do you get to that point ? That's what she's saying. @OldMan70

Don’t let fear keep you from having what you want in life. The only way you will know if it is what you want is if you give it a try. The pain of not trying is the same as the pain of trying and finding out it isn’t for you. And maybe just maybe it will be exactly what you want and need and you will have the best life ever. But you won’t know if you let fear keep you from trying.

tell him to buy bitcoin and give him a few names to contact.

Don’t be in a hurry to grow up. Adulthood has its own challenges.

I think I'd tell her that she doesn't need to be anxious like she is, that there are adults and medications that can help. I'd tell her she's right, her dad IS emotionally abusive- I believe her and will try to help do something about it.
I would tell her she’s beautiful and she isn’t broken. I would tell her not to be afraid, to love herself, to love her gifts. I would tell her to never allow anyone to take her dreams away or make her feel insignificant.

I would tell myself to go tell my mom what happened. Tell her everything and move away.

@AlienFox I've already had to block a few people here, and this person can join the list. Some people just enjoy causing misery for others. I'm sorry about what you went through. I hope everything is okay for you right now. Keep going, stay strong! 🙂
AlienFox · 36-40, F
@TommyNoir Thank you 🤗 All good 🖤

They are the sad ones truly. I can't imagine the sadness and anger built up to want to hurt others.

I would tell myself the bullying is only temporary, to stick with my current friends throughout highschool, and that my mother is wrong about jobs for women and university. Also not to date until I’m 40

"Come Out now"
For real. I knew early on I was gay. I missed many opportunities, and perhaps,i wouldn't have had my heart broken and chose not to be friends with those so called "friends" who ditched me when I revaled my true self.

Buy Microsoft
Buy Amazon, Netflix and Google early on

Dad usually already knows the truth when he asks you a question

Walk away after what happens late in 2014. Trust me you'll be better off.

Study harder, invest in Xerox and IBM and keep your eyes open for a company called Microsoft. Buy gold as soon as you can. Bet heavily on the 1969 Mets
TommyNoir · 31-35, M
@redredred And don't be betting on the 2023 Mets!

I would tell him to forget what the coach says and go ahead and be a switch-hitter. You have more power from the left side, so use it. Plus, most pitchers are righties.

I wouldn't come anywhere close to 10 year old me, lol. I don't know how to talk to children. 😆

Don't overthink about what others might think. Be yourself.

Nothing good. I may be tempted to slap the shit out of her.

Don't start smoking, don't drink and drive, stay in London.

No idea. I'd probably fill him up with my own anxieties trying to do good by him.
Not much point in saying anything. 10 year old me wouldn't listen.
I'd tell him to snitch out our mother to our Dad, that she'll be taking our older brothers and ourselves away from Oregon to iowa, and that her lies will eventually cost him his life.
