What advice would you give to your younger self?

Was there a time when your childhood self needed some encouraging? Maybe when you were starting high school, you needed someone to reassure you? Perhaps you wish you'd had a friend to verbally slap that drink out of your hand the night before uni exams?

With the new academic year starting, we wanted to ask you:

What pearls of wisdom would you share with your younger self?

Write an open letter, a short post, an image or a video.

Grades don't define your self-worth. A person can end up with 10A*s at A-level and a first class degree from Cambridge, but if they have no common sense, they are still a ****ing idiot.

Also, don't live your lie to please others. Doesn't work out in the long run because you'll eventually realise you haven't achieved anything just to make yourself happy, somebody else has been living their life, desires and failures through you and this is a perfect set-up for a quarter life crisis.

Don't be scared to take risks. The amount of things I didn't do because I was scared I wouldn't succeed or that I would feel embarrassed or rejected is quite saddening.

Life is all about taking risks, calculated risks anyway, never be afraid to try something new.

Stop staying up playing video games the night before college! Focus more, and follow your own intuition.

Less wishing and more taking action.
You are beautiful
Stick up for yourself and fight for what you believe in.

Don't be so weak and useless. Don't befriend the people you did and fight the bullies. Stop caring about what people think of you.

Wasn't this one of those Golden Threads not long ago?

How many more 'Be yourself; you are beautiful' comments do you want to see?

I think I would tell myself to stand up for myself more and to stop caring what people thought about me, and not to be ashamed of any of my difficulties anymore.

Make studying and apply to uni as your no.1 priority, look for a part-time job as soon as you are 16, don't be friends or even interact with certain people that you did, and be less awkward and more confident.

Dear me,
Stand up for yourself, believe in yourself and make the best of every situation.
You can do this.
