21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves

  • Jonathan, 55:There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
  • Miranda, 24:Drop pre-med.
  • Isaac, 48:Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
  • Anya, 42:Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
  • Parker, 55:60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
  • Megan, 34:He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
  • Peter, 58:Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
  • Eleanor, 67:Talk less. Listen more.
  • Donald, 27:There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.
  • Camille, 56:Always remember: when falling off a horse, pull your tongue in.
  • Jackson, 57:No one knows anything for sure. They’re all just doing the best they can with what they have, just like you.
  • Vicki, 47:You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
  • Donald, 38:You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.
  • Katelyn, 30:Make the most out of college. You will never again be at a place where your only goal is to learn. Learn a lot, learn often, and learn with reckless abandon.
  • Joshua, 55:Women love to laugh.
  • Annabelle, 38:Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
  • Colin, 50:You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
  • Eleanor, 26:Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
  • Aaron, 52:Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
  • Scarlett, 54:Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
  • Zack, 9:I hope you’re awesome. And be nice to girls.

It has occurred to me today that day in and day out my biggest concerns and areas of stress revolve around - when my next deadline is due, what I’m going to do this weekend, how my family is doing, when I’m going to see my friends next, what my next career move is, how my boyfriend is doing, what the fuck I want to wear tomorrow morning - and it’s all finally come crashing down on me that THERE IS WAR GOING ON OUTSIDE OF US. That this week alone THREE PLANES have come crashing down or have been shot down out of the sky. Schools are being bombed. Children are dying because shootings won’t stop long enough for them to get to a hospital. Homes are being evacuated. The Peace Corps is moving out of Kenya because of rising security concerns (okay, um, what about the Kenyans who can’t leave then). THERE IS LITERALLY WAR GOING ON IN THIS 21ST CENTURY THAT WE LIVE IN AND I’M SITTING IN SUNNY CALIFORNIA THINKING ABOUT WHAT I’M GOING TO EAT FOR LUNCH.

I am privileged. If you are reading this right now, you are privileged. And I realize that by sitting here, ranting on Facebook isn’t going to change any of the mentioned above, I’m not going to immediately quit my job and pound on the front doors of the UN, I’m not going to join the army and go fight for peace - but my insides are burning and my soul is on fire, and if nothing else at all, I can change the small, small world around me and bring attention to these issues. If I can just create one ripple of awareness, maybe it can touch the other end of this pond.

BuzzFeed speaks to our millennial minds - read at least this today, and you’ll have been a better person than me who has been nonstop complaining about how cold it is in the office with the air conditioner blasting: http://www.buzzfeed.com/sheerafrenkel/at-least-13-palestinians-were-killed-inside-the-un-school-wh

Did you know, you can quit your job, you can leave university? You aren’t legally required to have a degree, it’s a social pressure and expectation, not the law, and no one is holding a gun to your head. You can sell your house, you can give up your apartment, you can even sell your vehicle, and your things that are mostly unnecessary. You can see the world on a minimum wage salary, despite the persisting myth, you do not need a high paying job. You can leave your friends (if they’re true friends they’ll forgive you, and you’ll still be friends) and make new ones on the road. You can leave your family. You can depart from your hometown, your country, your culture, and everything you know. You can sacrifice. You can give up your $5.00 a cup morning coffee, you can give up air conditioning, frequent consumption of new products. You can give up eating out at restaurants and prepare affordable meals at home, and eat the leftovers too, instead of throwing them away. You can give up cable TV, Internet even. This list is endless. You can sacrifice climbing up in the hierarchy of careers. You can buck tradition and others’ expectations of you. You can triumph over your fears, by conquering your mind. You can take risks. And most of all, you can travel. You just don’t want it enough. You want a degree or a well-paying job or to stay in your comfort zone more. This is fine, if it’s what your heart desires most, but please don’t envy me and tell me you can’t travel. You’re not in a famine, in a desert, in a third world country, with five malnourished children to feed. You probably live in a first world country. You have a roof over your head, and food on your plate. You probably own luxuries like a cellphone and a computer. You can afford the $3.00 a night guest houses of India, the $0.10 fresh baked breakfasts of Morocco, because if you can afford to live in a first world country, you can certainly afford to travel in third world countries, you can probably even afford to travel in a first world country. So please say to me, “I want to travel, but other things are more important to me and I’m putting them first”, not, “I’m dying to travel, but I can’t”, because I have yet to have someone say they can’t, who truly can’t. You can, however, only live once, and for me, the enrichment of the soul that comes from seeing the world is worth more than a degree that could bring me in a bigger paycheck, or material wealth, or pleasing society. Of course, you must choose for yourself, follow your heart’s truest desires, but know that you can travel, you’re only making excuses for why you can’t. And if it makes any difference, I have never met anyone who has quit their job, left school, given up their life at home, to see the world, and regretted it. None. Only people who have grown old and regretted never traveling, who have regretted focusing too much on money and superficial success, who have realized too late that there is so much more to living than this.
