1. Don't date Andrea.
2. Cut down on your pcp consumption.
3. Don't ditch half the day and ride your skateboard to Tustin.

Whatever I would tell my teenage self doesn't matter because I wouldn't listen to some old douche bag trying to give me advice. I was way too headstrong back then.

Also, I believe that it's better to experience things myself instead of just taking advice from someone even if they went through it already. I need to go through it as well and learn those lessons on my own.

So no, it wouldn't work and I wouldn't listen to myself.

I probably would have listened to myself, as I was a particularly lonely individual who would have sailed on the words of anyone with a caring heart, but I'd have told myself -

You don't have to put down the things you love to win the approval of people around you. Keep writing, keep learning, you are surrounded by small minds.

Don't try to wedge yourself into social groups you know you don't belong in.

Nobody cares about your achievements but you.

Likewise.
When I was a teen, nothing I was doing was of any consequence to anyone. Retrospective advice would have been far more welcomed when I became actually in charge of my own life.

That can be a costly mistake...
Most people don't have the foresight enough to truly know when something is a truly bad decision if they're just going to go through with it anyway "for the learning experience".
I think, in general, such a person is not really seeing the larger picture. Not all mistakes are easily recovered from, and not all lessons are easily learned. Your biggest mistakes are often the most regretted ones that, after they happen, you wish you had taken that advice.
You don't pat yourself on the back and feel pride in having gone through them.

At least, for me this rings true. I'm not sure what level of mistake you're referring to in your statement.

My mistakes haven't been that serious but I still feel that's just part of life even if you end up regretting a costly mistake. I feel like it's better to go through circumstances and hardships on your own for that learning experience. Someone can give you advice to avoid it but you won't really understand why you need to avoid it unless you have it wearing on your shoulders heavily.

I don't disagree that learning from mistakes is valuable.
I just don't think it's more valuable than not having made them at all if you understand what's at stake.

Whether that's from foresight, trust, advice or anything else... if you can avoid a negative life-altering decision, you're generally better off not having altered your life irreversibly just to realize you don't enjoy it.
However, more often than not, we will tend to gamble on the infallibility of our own decisions and only realize this after it's too late.

If there is one thing I've learned in my life that has a lot of value to me, it's that the experience of people who have been through things before is a lot more valuable than the assumptions of those who haven't.
Unfortunately, this is often appreciated too late, if at all.
