BYJUites’ piece of advice to their 18-year-old selves ?

Team StoryWeavers|August 12, 2020| 104

What are the things that often come with age? 

Extra candles on your birthday cake? Umm…yes

Weight? Err… More often than not!

Wisdom? We wish!

Bills and EMIs? Yes and yes

Social obligations? Totally! 

More responsibilities? Ugh… don’t even get us started!

Our perspective sure does change with time. But at some point, have you looked back and thought, “I wish I knew then what I know now!”

So this International Youth Day, we asked BYJUites to travel back in time and let us know that one thing they would advise their 18-year-old selves. The answers were insightful, witty and some — downright hilarious!

Here’s what BYJUites had to say:

We have made a lot of beautiful memories in our teenage years, made our share of mistakes, learnt from them and eventually moved on. All this shaped us into being the person that we are today. 

Now that you have a better understanding of the world, tell us what is that one piece of advice you would give to your younger self, in the comments section below!

I would tell myself that it’s okay to think about yourself. It’s absolutely fine to be selfish at times. Be happy with what you have today.. don’t ruin today thinking about the future. Would make myself believe in being content with what I have instead of running behind what I want.
And yes I would love to tell this to myself today as well — DON’T RUN BEHIND ANYTHING OR ANYONE. WHAT’S YOURS WILL COME YOUR WAY!

It is okay to be chubby,
It is okay to make mistakes,
It is okay to put your points,
It is okay to be confused about everything and everyone,
and the most important advice is stay happy in the moment you are living.

I believe childhood is the golden period of our life. We live in an imaginary world until life gets challenging with age. But, we should never kill the kid within us. We should learn to handle it wisely and enjoy its beautiful presence within ourselves. A kid always has a magic to spread smile and positivity.
