No Advice for Younger-self

I would not give my younger-self any advice, because I’ve needed uncertainty, fear, doubt, angst to become who I am today. Without that, I wouldn’t have studied, worked, persisted, reached out to other humans, connected, and synergized as much as I have to get to my current self. I used to think I’d relieve my younger-self, but now I realize it all served a purpose.
