Advice I'd Give My Past Self

1. Don't live your life to please others; you'll never succeed at making everyone happy.

2. Go to college BEFORE you marry or have children so you'll never be dependent on another or *stuck* in a unhappy relationship.

3. Choose a career that you are passionate about and don't let anyone talk you out of doing what you love.

4. Don't ever touch that first alcoholic drink or cigarette. They are expensive, unhealthy and so NOT cool.

5. Don't ever let a man force you into sex, even if it means hitchhiking 600 miles to get back home.

6. Surround yourself with positive people who make you laugh and feel good about life.

Stay away from the trampoline. You will just about rip your foot off and have trouble the rest of your life.<br />
<br />
Don’t get drunk and grab a moving train. You will break your back in 4 places and not know it. Then in your late thirties your back due to the damage will begin to degrade and you will suffer REAL pain <br />
<br />
Stop getting into bar fights over my name. That would of saved me at least one stab wound.<br />
<br />
Stop getting hit in the head and suffer 5 major concussions and a whole lot of minor ones. A few more bumps to the head and I’m going to start forgetting basic math…<br />
<br />
In 92 when you hear the thunder storm get out of the water or you will get hit by lightning. That really hurt<br />
<br />
Stop myself from getting involved with some of the crazy girlfriends I ended up with<br />
<br />
Even better don’t drink… you’ll solve a lot of the stuff with that. Though that would lose April 14 1994 as my special day as that was the day I did quit drinking. Hmmm lose one days meaning or a life time of pain and suffering. I think I would give up that day <br />
<br />
Go back to 97 and tell myself to finish the damn book I writing then instead of 11 years later.
