The Way We Were Then.
[Locked to Est members]
I've just finished reading Dear Me: A Letter to My Sixteen-Year-Old Self. It's a fascinating book - as you can probably guess from the title it's a collection of letters from writers, athletes, musicians, and the like, all to their teenage selves.
Which is a hell of a thing to think about really. We all think we're older and wiser now, and I'm fairly sure that my teenage self wouldn't have listened to a word a sixty-something had to say. But I do think it's an interesting question anyway.
I think for me it would be something along the lines of "Wait it out. It gets a lot less confusing a few years down the line." Which to be honest with you is the same advice I'd give to my twenty six year old self, I'm not sure what that says about me.
What would you say to yourself back then, given the chance?
