But then something happened -- something I never imagined would happen.
I, well, grew up.
I wanted to see if you all went through something similar, so last week, I ask this question: What advice would you give your younger self if you had the chance? You answered. Loud and clear, actually...
*Don't waste so much time on boys. The ones that matter come when you least expect it.
*Stop worrying so much about what others think of you; worry more about what YOU think of you.
*Protect your heart. Don't give yourself away too easily. Don't waste time on guys that aren't good to you or won't make time for you.
*Just relax. This doesn't really matter in the bigger picture.
*Drugs will melt your brain. Seriously. Don't do it.
*Breathe and count to 10 before reacting to anything that isn't an immediate emergency.
*Your body is you, too; take care of it because you will be stuck with it till the day you die. Don't worry about losing weight, but get plenty of exercise (dancing counts!) and eat as healthily as you can and still be content.
*Don't worry: be happy!
*You know what is right and true--ignore the noise!
*Trust your intuition.
How would you define true love?
