What advice would you give your 15-year old self?

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards" - Kierkegaart Everybodies personal life is endlessly complex. We are bound to make mistakes, some costly, some less so. Each of us builds up practical knowledge and experience, that would have been GREAT if you could have passed it to your younger self. Imagine you have one chance to travel back in time, to your 15 year old self. After you managed to take away any doubt about the reality of your time travel project, you have five minutes to give your young self your best advice, in order to maximize the hapiness of your self in the long run. What advice would that be? NOTE: let's focus on life advice, not things like "INVEST ALL YOU GOT IN BITCOIN AND SELL OFF WHEN IT REACHES[masked]$ BIATCH !!!!" I'll start off to get the conversation going. LOCATION: Beer Central, very close to Central Station. Look for the guy wairing a red-white striped pullover. If you can't find me, call[masked]. ------------------------------ PLEASE read the group description to know what this group is (not) about: https://www.meetup.com/nl-NL/discussion-based-on-realistic-worldview/ For optimal group talk, places are limited to 8 spots. Because of that:
PLEASE set yourself to ATTEND if you plan to attend (if no-one sets themselves to attend, I will cancel it last minute. If at least one person sets themselves to attend, I’ll be there and we’ll make it a night to remember, whololooo).
PLEASE do attend if you have set yourself to attend.
If something comes up and you can’t make it, please set yourself to NOT attend. If last minute, I appreciate an sms[masked] I have planned a bunch of subjects that interest me, each about two weeks apart. Choose the subjects that interest you. I’ll start each subject with a little intro and some reflections on it, which will serve as the conversation starter. Purposes are to get to know random people (with a "realistic world view", see group descirption), while sharing stories around interesting subjects, and learning a thing or two about that subject and perspectives other than your own. Usually planned on Wednesday and Fridays (the latter for subjects that have more of a tendency to last well into the night. Of course, if mood and carpeDiem demands it, we can wrap it up at a certain point and see what adventures the city has to offer). Tip: take a few moments of reflection beforehand to gather your thoughts (on the toilet, bus,…) and write some things down around the subject (some subjects demand this more than others). Try to add something of value. Anybody always has something of value to add, but they don’t always know it. E.g. if we talk about dreams, and you almost never dream, that is actually an interesting nugget to share. Also feel free to bring accessories around the subject at hand. This project cannot succeed without your enthousiasm! Like anything in this world, really.
