DEAR SELF. What are some things you wish you knew way back when?
MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Our twenties span one crazy roller coaster ride. It’s the time of our lives when we learn how to become more independent and make life-changing decisions on our own.
There’s a mix of mistakes and regrets, lessons and triumphs, but that’s exactly what we look back on and laugh about.
Our twenties is also the time when we discover who we truly are. We make changes when it comes to how we see ourselves, our lifestyles, and even our careers until we realize that we can become our best beautiful selves no matter what.
As we turn a year older, we also change for the better. We change to realize that we can still become a better version of ourselves and realize that our past mistakes are reminders that it's never too late to improve oneself.
Looking back, no matter what age we are now, there are many things that we wish we did or didn’t do and lessons we wish we knew back then.
If you had the chance to talk to your past self, what would you say?
