Most important piece of advice to tell your 20-year-old-self: you are you and it is impossible for you to be anything else, you do what you would do because you are biologically, neurologically and circumstantially incapable of doing anything else. Regrets are a myth and a self-pitying fallacy. You are where you would be because you are you, you do what you do because you are you and all you can do is keep being you and enjoy the ride, even when it hurts. And as you know, if you kill yourself now, you’ll never see how the story ends…
