If you could go back in time and talk to your 5-year-old self, what would you tell them (aside from "tell your parents to purchase stocks in Netflix")?
A charity in the UK called @YoungMinds, which is devoted to fighting for mental health in young people, asked people on Twitter to share a childhood selfie along with three things they would tell their 5-year-old selves.
The results are an emotional reminder that people are generally too hard on ourselves starting at a very young age, and most kids (and adults!) would benefit from some positive reinforcement and encouragement.
These 17 responses contain some excellent advice—for both kids and adults! So try to remember to treat your adult self with the kindness that you would your 5-year-old self—because deep down we're all just 5-year-olds who need love and encouragement.
Warning: may cause crying.
