    I’de tell myself I don’t deserve the abuse, and things aren’t really my fault like they told me.

    To not waste so much time, energy and brain power on nothing!
    When I finally knuckled down to study I amazed myself, but ageist Britain only sees a date of birth.

    I would tell myself to just chill out, report the abuse sooner and to someone who cares. Also to stop worrying about tomorrow, live today and worry about tomorrow when it happens.

    • When someone follows "I love you" with any kind of "but" - just walk away.
    • You only get one body - and eating yourself into obesity isn't going to fill the hole inside you; cliches are cliches because they are most often true.
    • Cut up that bloody credit card!
    • If it feels wrong - get out. No matter how hard it might be or what anyone threatens to do to you/themselves/others if you do.

    Do it now because things will just get progressively worse.

    I'd tell myself to be true to myself, to be my own person instead of pretending to be someone else in order to "fit in." I'd tell myself to think things out, make better choices, be less impulsive.

    ~Too always love myself.
    ~Never to give up and that things will get better for you.
    ~That bad things may happen to you, but deep down you're a beautiful person.
    ~Don't believe the lies that people tell you, ask them to explain themselves.
    ~That you'll meet a lot of amazing people that will change you're life.
    ~One day you'll find love & they'll stick by your side no matter what.

    Come out!!! Things were different but plenty people allowed themselves to be true.

    Porno is not a good way to make money, Ok, it was, but it ruined my head.

    Open your eyes, don't believe what you want to hear, step back, look at the reality, and whatever you do, don't tie your self-esteem too deeply to the opinion of those around you. Don't mistake being able to take a lot of pain and punishment to being strong, the more pain you take on, the more you will keep having to carry with you, and you know as well as I do that you wont be able to unburden yourself of that pain once it's there.

    Here's a list of people you will meet. The ones in red are the ones you have to turn away, don't let them in to your life and hurt you, because they will do. The ones in blue, hold on to at all costs. It might be hard to, but you will be much better off with them being in your life, so don't you dare make the mistake of losing them. In black are next weeks lottery numbers.

    your father is not capable of love. forgive him. move on. dont give in to his apologies as much as it hurts, just accept them for what they are, empty. the abuse is not your fault, you are not responsible for his actions and it is not your responsibility to stop the abuse and as I read some where before...pretty sure it was post secret.... "be gentle with yourself"........

    If someone does something that is not right, say it, no scream at him that he should think twice :D

    Well there is the results of horse racing etc. so my younger self could place winning bets all the time so I would now be rich :rofl: but seriously I would tell myself not to get so worked up and not to think to deeply about things and not to read between the lines

    I would probably just make a long list of decisions I made that ended up badly and sum it up with "don't trust your mother, just forgive her," "Only respect people as far as they respect you," and "don't try drugs, they're not that great," (a lie).

    I cannot remember if I have posted in this thread, so please excuse me if I have already done so.

    I suppose the only thing that I would even consider telling my younger self is to shut the fuck up and take field hockey as a profession. Damn I was a good Left Wing (and the occassional Right Wing). I miss those games.
