I met my husband at 21 but I had just come home from a study abroad trip, traveled alone a bit, and felt content being single. I was starting to grow into my own skin and felt happy and excited for the future. Less than 2 weeks after I came home, I met my husband and now I’m married at 25.

I would tell my younger self to enjoy the time I have left in college with my friends because after college, it’s much harder to get together and hang out because of work schedules and such. I loved living with my roommates and I miss the times we had together in college. Cherish the college years!

@Sugar Plum.x  I don’t regret anything because it all led me to where I am, but…

let the good in. don’t allow pain harden you so much. allow people who have proven themselves to be good people closer. you don’t need to do crazy, morally questionable, dangerous things to feel alive. focus on the future. focus on school. stop trying to validate yourself in irresponsible ways; having the emotional upper hand is not worth it. don’t get back together with your ex – you don’t love him that way and you will just hurt one another more. save money. stop hating yourself. embrace grief – let it consume you when it first arrives or it will overstay its welcome. be honest, even if your voice shakes. you will find love.

I would had dumped toxic relationships sooner (boyfriends, friends, family, etc.). I also would of tried to do a better job of staying in shape, and I wish I knew more about healthy living then (like eating healthy, stretching, yoga, investing in massage). I would of traveled more. If I could go back, I would of finished college in my early 20’s and gone on to get my BA when I had the energy! I did eventually get a degree, but it was after I turned 30!

I would tell myself to calm the fuck down and stop stressing out, and to have fun and take a few more risks in life.
