16 things I would tell my 16 year old self

Being a teenager can be so hard. You feel no one really understands you, and sometimes it can get out of control for many. Luckily I was a responsible teenager. I didn’t get a lot of trouble and had great grades all through high school. I got my GCSEs a year earlier than my peers, and had the opportunity to go to university at the age of 16. Actually I went in few months to my 16th birthday.

I was quite young but very intelligent and street smart for my age. So I handled university quite well.

I read posts like this a lot on other blogs and I like them because they make you reflect and think deep. I would love to sit 16-year-old self down, and tell her a lot of things but these 16 things are the top on the list.




  1. Know your worth, and don’t settle for anything less than what you want.
  2. Shine bright like a diamond, never let anyone dull your shine.
  3. Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.
  4. Embrace your strengths and your weaknesses. They make you who you are.
  5. Focus on your studies, so your grades don’t drop.
  6. Go for a university degree you have an interest in.
  7. Have a bit of fun. You are young only once.
  8. Take care of your skin. Drink more glasses of water and don’t sleep with your makeup on.
  9. Pay attention to your hair care. Stop wearing hair styles that destroy your hair-line, and get rid of the relaxers that break your hair.
  10. Learn how to drive, so your 30-year-old self doesn’t have to worry.
  11. Pay more attention to your skills and improve them.
  12. Get rid of toxic relationships/friendships. They are not needed.
  13. Don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd.
  14. Start a blog.
  15. You know the difference between right and wrong, always stick with the right.
  16. Relax, everything would be fine in the end.




What would you tell your 16-year-old self?
