By Vernalee With age comes wisdom. Hindsight gives us 20/20 vision. When we reflect upon our past, there are so many things that we would have done differently. Right? Unfortunately, we cannot turn back the hands on the clock. We can however, learn from our mistakes and not make them over and over again. We can give advice so that others don’t make the same mistakes that we did. Whether they listen, well that’s another thing. Reflecting back, we didn’t always listen either. We lived out the axiom, “Learnt sense is better than bought sense.” Some of the lessons that we learned were paid at a hefty price! Remember? So if you had to give advice to your younger self, what would you say? Here’s what Oprah said in O Magazine that she would have written to her 19 year old ” brown skinned” self. You’ve spent too many days and years trying to please others and be what they wanted you to be,” she writes. “You will have to learn that the wounds of your past — and not being allowed to show anger or cry afterward — damaged your self-esteem,” she says.

Now then, here’s the question of the hour ... if you could turn back the clock and give advice to your younger self, what would it be?

The answer is all yours! Photo source: O Magazine courtesy of Huffington Post
