What I would like to say to my younger self
Are there things I wish I could tell my younger self, based on what I know now, so I can live a happier, more peaceful, joyful life? Absolutely.
Observing where we are today and what we are experiencing is something wonderful. We only know what we know. And most of us are doing the best we can with what we know.

My only goal growing up was to have as many experiences as possible during my time in life.

24 years have passed and looking back, what I experienced in my adolescence, the experiences I had, the trips I took, the bad things I went through, I would have liked someone to have told me some things...

If I could sit down with my younger self, I would love to tell him everything I have learned about the world and the things I wish I had known or learned with more time. Here I leave them:

Take the time to get to know yourself

Most of the time in our lives, people influence our likes and dislikes. But if you don't believe in those choices, don't let them influence you. Pressure from others can consume you and turn you into a person you are not. So, take as much time as you want to understand who you really are.

Knowing yourself is the most important thing to have a great life, full of experiences that make you feel good.

Enjoy every moment, because you will never get it back

I, like many people and teenagers, spent a lot of time wishing I was older and dreaming about how amazing life would be once I finally had control.

To be honest, I think life as an adult is much better, but you don't have to stop enjoying every moment of your life.

Life is today, it is the time to enjoy, meet people and have fun.

We all have defects

If you think someone else is beautiful and you are not as perfect as them, you are wrong. Neither they are perfect nor are you imperfect. Everyone has flaws and the sooner you start accepting this fact, the easier life will be for you.

Be good to yourself

If you don't love and take care of yourself, why should others?

I spent a lot of my teenage years at war with myself; struggling to love and appreciate my body, my skin and my quirks. Most days, I wished I could look like someone else. I had low self-esteem and self-confidence.

It breaks my heart a little to think about how much my younger self struggled to be kind to herself. When I understood how to accept myself as I am, I began to see life in different colors. I started to make myself much happier.

Start showing yourself love and compassion, because you deserve it.

Don't be in a hurry to have life resolved

If you're not where you expected to be now, that's okay. There is no deadline to travel the path of your soul and make all your dreams come true.

Of course, we want to get there as quickly as possible, to feel successful and like we've "made it." But there is no rush. You have your whole life.

Forget about what others do. Focus on yourself and your path. Because nothing else matters. And life is not a competition or a race.

Dedicate yourself to doing all the things you love!
