    Good post , I'd add let idiots do what they want once it doesn't directly affect you or your family.

    I'd tell myself to relax, be less uptight and not take everything teacher/thing seriously. I'd also told myself to go to a different secondary school. I felt pushed into going to the one I went to.

    If your life is crap nobody is going to make it better for you. If anyone offers you a better life 'just take the risk and trust them' when the **** hits the fan they'll lay the blame solely at your feet not their own. Too good to be true, it never is. All you'll do is make their lives less crap than yours which will end up worse than before.

    Stay away from people who don't say what they mean or mean what they say.

    Relax the pressure about your age.

    Don't overthink relationships.

    If you meet the wrong person but thought they were the right person at first, stay single for a good while and work on yourself.
