This answer would entirely depend on if that advice could influence who I am today. When people ask this question, I usually think of it as a roundabout way of asking what I would change about my life today, assuming that the advice would affect my decisions along the way. If it could change my path, I wouldn’t give any advice … even if it could ease any pain in the journey. I really don’t regret anything in life because all of the struggles, hardships, and things I’ve had to overcome have made me the person that I am today. I’m always striving to be better and to enjoy life more, but I feel pretty good about where I’m at, and wouldn’t really want to wave a magical wand to change any of it. All we can do is continually try to be a better and more loving version of ourselves. But ultimately, I love that I give a lot less fucks about what many people think as I get older. On second thought, maybe I’d tell myself to really savor eating a pint of ice cream every week because your metabolism is going to hit a dead end at 28.

Actually a lot of things – and I must admit that I sometimes struggle in realizationwith those things 😉
Emotions are temporary
Never forget that every feeling you feel is just temporary. We all have bad times and sometimes it feels like there is no improvement in sight. The good thing about bad emotions/bad times are that it is just temporary. The only constant thing in life ischange – therefore better times will come.
Learn to remain calm and cool
The ability to remain calm especially in hard times will have an huge impact to your performance. People who are able to remain calm can control their emotions and as well they do not allow themselves to be carried on by their bad emotions. Furthermore it will help you to clear your mind and being able to see options that opens up new doors.
We all know that’s impossible to focus on what is essential when we are blocked or angry/sad… Consequences are panicky reactions – in such moods we are at our worst.
For me staying calm has a lot to do with accepting life and the pain life can bring along. If we manage staying calm, I guess it shows that we learned respecting others as well as ourselves.
It would make life so much easier.
