The benefit of hindsight is a wonderful thing. That is why inspirational free Kindle book Three Things I’d Tell My Younger Self should be in every young person's library.

It includes topics such as struggling between 'yes' and 'no' situations, heartbreak and even dealing with disabilities as well as other challenges.
If I could tell myself younger self something, it would be 'never gossip, don't work in newspapers and let the boys chase you - not the other way around'.
I would be interested to know what advice you would give yourself, if you could.

Many readers say they identify with the issues raised, particularly the insecurities they experienced in their teens and early twenties. Feeling unpopular and not as good as their peers are among the memories shared in the advice.

I recommend this book to anyone, particularly those facing a challenge or wanting to get the heads up on how to avoid making a little mistake that could change their life bigtime - and for the worse. You would be surprised how the little things can have the most negative impacts. Make sure your decisions are positive ones!
