20-something guy: No way! I saw a cute rat today too. When I came to New York I thought that all the rats would be huge with glowing eyes and sharp fangs, but I kind of wanted to keep it... Look! I even wrote it down. (gets out notebook) Saw first rat today, it was surprisingly cute.

You Tell Me...
If you could give your younger self three pieces of advice what would they be?


  1. Braingle Answer:

    No one lives forever.

  2. 3 things:

    1. I would tell myself to make decisions based on what I want not what people around me want.

    2. Don't complain so much. I complained about a lot of things that looking back were insignificant.

    3.Tell people how you feel about them. I know my mom knew I loved her, and I told her frequently. But if I had known, I would have told her every single day that she meant the world to me.

  3. Hmm...I think mine would be:

    1- Smile more. Things have this funny way of turning out ok.

    2- The "cool people" are just as lost as you are. Most young people have no clue what they're doing or where they're going.

    3- Whatever you're worried about now won't even be a blip on your radar next year.

    There's lots more though and most of them might be my future self telling me these things.
