What advice would you give your 20 year old self?

Whew, Storyworth. I just figured out Mother’s Day, and now I need to give my 20-year-old self advice. Well, let’s buckle up and do just that!
  1. Do NOT pick a guy over friends.
  2. Always put your needs before the needs of anyone else.
  3. Do NOT stay with a guy if he does not treat you the way you deserve to be treated.
  4. You can set and meet ANY goal you set your mind to.
  5. If you question something, listen to your intuition. You doubt yourself now, but you will get so much better about listening to that inner voice later in life.
  6. It may not feel like it now, but you WILL have an amazing family and husband.
  7. Your interest in true crime (read: Jeffrey McDonald case) will continue so much so that your friends call it your “special interest.”
  8. Your need for things to be “in the right place” will never go away. Sorry.
  9. You will learn to stand up for yourself and take no bullshit from anyone. And that will feel amazing.
  10. Those childhood dreams of becoming a veterinarian/lawyer will play out in a way you could never anticipate.
