Women of Faith Wednesday -- Advice to Self

Pin It

I saw this on my friend Amanda's blog and had to follow the linky. As my oldest is growing up, I think all the time about things I wish I had known back then (or maybe it's things I wish I didn't know now!)

So, the question is ...

If you could go back in time and tell your teenage self one thing, what would you say?

(Just one? Really?)

Okay ... the main thing I would say is that when a person reveals their true character, believe them the first time. In other words - when someone shows you that they are a jerk, just trust them. Don't make them prove it over and over. Know that it's better to be alone than to hang out with someone who treats you badly. The Lord will bring good people into your life, trust Him to do so. :)

And because I would never really just say one thing, I have one more thought. Shaving your eyebrows? Never a good idea. Not that I ever did that, or ever would do that. I'm just sayin' ... so, to my teenage self? Put down that razor. Nothing good is going to come from that.

Oh, it´s funny post, but also so true! I agree with you!!!

Micah said...

Good advice.
On both accounts. LOL

Mary Ann said...

So true! That advice could have saved me years... LOL

God bless!

Mel C said...

SO true!! And I love the bit about the shaved eyebrows!! TOO CUTE!

Lisa said...

Wow - I read this just in time! I barely shaved any eyebrows off - just 3 little bald spots in the right one. People might mistake me for Vanilla Ice's mom, but only for a few weeks. :)

You did learn this in time, maybe the hard way, but you learned. Your sister still hasn't. Dad
