What would you say? I personally would tell my younger self to ignore what my parents tell me. To a degree, they controlled what I did; it really was engraved in my culture. I never really wanted to be in this particular position, and I do believe that if I had acted differently that I would have been better off.

If I went back in time and tried to talk to my younger self, he may be very creeped out.

But since we're on the subject of going back in time, I wouldn't talk to my younger self, I would go back and be him, after I arranged the circumstances of my life differently, somewhat like adjusting the "settings" on a computer.  It would take some careful research.  So I would be "forced" to do certain things.  I would pull a lot of strings, but to maintain the sense of chance, of surprise, in life, my younger self, about 14, with whom I'd be merged, wouldn't know about them.

But after getting my wish, would I lessen or escape my angst, or still have it?

I would go back to my 14 year old self and say "Don't go out with Logan!" But would I have listened to me? Probably not...I wouldn't listen to anyone back then. By the time I started listening it was already too late. As Blake so aptly put it Sophomore year..."She's a bear trap...you either cut off you're own foot and get away or stay and die" Haha yup.

I don't have many regrets, I suppose that there's a few missed opportunities with a few different women but that's not a big deal...

Every choice I've made has shaped me into the person that I am today and I'm pretty happy with how I turned out and I'm happy with where my life is taking me. so TBH, if I went back in time somehow, I wouldn't say anything to myself. I would instead warn people about certain events that took place where many people died. WWII, 9/11, Katrina, etc....
...and what you decide to do every day, you will be a good man - or not.

You'd end up institutionalised with a Cassandra complex


I'd probably give myself a slap and say get out more
or we'd just sit down and play Lego Nuclear Holocaust Aftermath Survivors

Maybe just tell young Hylton that everything will be better eventually. They won't be great, never perfect, but it'll get better

I don't know if I would have said anything. Younger me probably just needed someone to see. We would probably lie with our heads hanging off the bed and read Tolstoy. Or listen to some Trivium. Or we would maybe play WoW or Temple run.

Hmm.. That sounds interesting. A little complicated, but interesting.

i could've tell my younger self the answer to the question that he wants to know......he wants to know what does he want to do ,what does he like ,i could tell him that as i know that now,but it wouldn't mean anything,years of wandering ,not belonging anywhere,trying to find your place,all the frustation ,the anger the mistakes that it took me to realize what i want to do is what makes it so special and important,it means something to me,once i knew that ,everything that ever happened,why it happened made complete sense,puzzle was solved,everything was in its right place,it took me bout 20 years to find it and thats how long its gonna take,if i go there and tell him that,maybe he would like it in the beginning ,try it ,but i on't think it will mean the same thing for him as it means to me now,but then again i could be wrong and i would wanna tell my future self to stop me from posting this

^Your profile says you're 21.  Is that a typo or were unusually mature at age one?

i turned 22 last month,
so u can say its a typo,but yea i think im a quick learner,genius,etc
but everyone keeps saying im dumb and not mature enough for life
but your comment makes me feel nice
i guess ,we need more intellects like you,i should've known u were smart when i came to know you were vegan
(yes,food affects thought process,personal experience)
im not used to compliments like these,maybe if u tried being sarcastic i couldve come with something witty,but it makes me feel good that atleast someone thinks of something that ive said as sensible to say the least

I would tell myself not to be shy when it comes to girls back when I was in high school.
I'd rather have a mind open with wonder, than one closed with belief.

If I could go back in time and meet my younger self I wouldn't say anything. I'd give him a PS4 or something because frankly Nintendo 64 sucked the big one. Half of the games I rented back then were crap.

If I went back in time and say something to my younger self, I'd simply say that many people will more than likely try to hurt you in many ways but no matter what always be true to yourself & not to believe every little thing someone tells you. To be very cautious of people and get to know people very well before you tell them anything personal cause people will try to take advantage of you.

I would also tell myself to find what interests me earlier in life and to attempt to learn more when it comes that. Didn't really have the option to do so in high school since our education system caters more to turning people into consumers than to encourage them to find something to be passionate about.
