If you could go back and meet yourself as a teenager

#1 Postby Justme » October 3rd, 2018, 1:11 am

If you could go back and meet yourself as a teenager what would you do?

I had a rather irresponsible youth which brought me a lot of headaches, a few heartaches and a mad dash at the end of my teen years to catch up to the world that had passed my by while I thought I knew everything.

Me, being me would most likely not want to talk with myself, as I know now the danger irresponsible people are to those who try and help them. Many that I've tried simply used me to facilitate their lifestyle and moved on.

I know that when I was drinking and drugging, all that mattered to me was that next fix or that next beer. Everything and everyone else was just a means to and end. I am sure that If I was still there, I'd either be in jail or dead.

I could not be more different. I was a swot and a very innocent and studious idealist who did not drink or smoke or consort with anyone. Now I do not smoke, but I do drink and consort if allowed to. This does not answer your question :laughter:
