This was a bit depressing to put together. A lot of these 24 people seem to have a lot of regrets. But at the same time, I also think they have learned from their mistakes and that their future will be brighter.
In 10 years' time you will get the opportunity to call yourself at this time for 1 minute, you now have 10 years to prepare something good to say.
Take the kids and run.
For the love of god, don't start drinking. It'll destroy you.
Don't eat the apple pie at grandma's house, she forgot to rinse the pan so the whole pie will taste like soap.
Don’t live your life according to what your mom wants you to do. Do what you want to do.
Do not date Susan, she will ruin your life.

Bro, you need to chill out, it gets worse.
For the love of god get your driver's license, if you don't you're going to get hit by a car.
Two things. First, I'd tell him that it would work out, give him the name of the company that will hire him in 8 months, maybe he can get in earlier. Two, bitcoin. Buy/mine as much as you can, and sell at $15k.
Tell mom and grandma you love them! They won’t be here in 10 years.
Is your refrigerator running?
I would just breathe heavy into the phone in an attempt to creep myself out.
Put all of your money in bitcoin. Oh yeah, Patriots win Super Bowl 49, 51, and 53. Put your life savings on each one.
Oh god..I would say..."Don't be scared, get an education and find a good job." Now I'm stuck in a miserable retail job.
Invest in Apple and you aren't marrying that girl you're seeing right now.
Get a therapist. 8 year olds are not normally depressed.
"Do not meet him. I repeat, DO NOT MEET HIM. START IGNORING HIM NOW!"
Spend time with your dad, he passes in 3 years. Get out of your sh*tty teenager attitude now. Buck up for a lot of medical issues, but you'll be okay. Avoid the abusive a**hole in college. Never stop practicing, you are talented but you need to learn how to practice. Don't give up.
Enjoy that hair while you still can.
Never try opiates. Seriously.
"You think you're clueless, helpless, and hopeless now? Well do I have some news for you!"
Don’t move to the coast - it ends horribly and you’ll get stabbed. Put down the drugs, you’ll regret it in 5 years. Go to the dentist, that sh*t is important. Go see your Nanny. She dies in 2 years, and you’ll miss her more than you realize. Don’t drink at your Mums wedding. She still loves you, but hot damn you hurt her. Be nice to your sister. She’s going through a lot too. She won’t tell you, but she needs you. Most importantly - go back to school, Eliza. Get your education. You’ll need it when you’re a 21 year old single mum struggling to support yourself and a toddler.
