You live and you learn, right? Life is a marathon, not a sprint, and we all make a lot of mistakes along the way.

It’s part of the growing process and all of us have thought about what we’d say to our younger selves if we could go back in time and give that young person some advice (and maybe a smack across the face).

In this Twitter thread, professional working women sound off on what they’d say to their younger selves if it was possible.

First, the question…

And then this fierce AF advice!

1. Speak up!

2. Ask as many questions as you want.

3. Not sustainable.

4. Build relationships.

5. We’re all replaceable.

6. Trust in yourself.

7. But be polite about it…

8. Ain’t nothing but a number.

9. It’s okay to take risks.

10. Don’t let this happen.

11. Not everyone has to like you.

12. This is crucial.

13. You’re a leader.

14. Some good advice.

15. You deserve to get paid.

Some pretty good life advice there, don’t you think?

What would you say to your younger self if you had the opportunity? It’s an intriguing question, that’s for sure.

Let us know in the comments. We’d love to hear from you!
