How do I deal with the fact that at the age of 19 my acne has faded away, have become much more attractive but missed out on far better experiences I could have made in my teen years if it had gone earlier? Or never existed in the first place.
I'm dwelling on that high school could have been much better..
19 is nothing, live faster and better mack up for the time you feel you have lost, also if that's your photo tell me wear you are and I will help you with this.
Nothing magical happens in high school unless your the alpha male star football player, and for 99% of everyone who goes to high school, isn't that.
Enjoy your life in college where women are less prudes, more interested in casual sex, and dudes are less pussies.
one of the best skills you can learn in life is how to accept that you can't change the past, you can only learn from it. might as well start now. that's the vague old-person answer.
the more concrete answer is: every time you catch yourself thinking "it could have been/should have been" just stop and ask yourself "what can I do to make the most out of today?" then go do that.
Alright, thanks for the satisfying responses
