Do you think your 15 year old self would like who you are now? Would he/she be pleased with your life? Would they be proud of you or disappointed in you?

A lot has changed since i was 15 and i feel things have changed for good. I am a better person then when i was 15 i guess and yes my 15 year old self would be proud of me now. I have learned to not hang around things that give a damn about what I have to say. I've grown up and i love it.

It sounds like you're doing great! We all have so much to learn as we grow up. It's kind of fun to look back and see how we have changed.

My 15 year old self was an idiot. My life is nothing how I envisioned it would be although it hasn't even been a decade since. However, all that stuff is only ego. I've found something much greater than what I was looking for.

My 15 year old self was pretty dumb too. I certainly made some huge mistakes. But, I guess we all live and learn.

I have been a great example to both my teens and they know all about my life as they have seen me daily. I feel they are proud of who I am and how I as a single mother did my best to make sure they were well taken care of. I have made a few mistakes along the way surely recognized them right away and took actions to correct them. I have been very open in discussing with my children right from wrong, so yes I believe they are very proud of me.

That's wonderful! It sounds like you really have your act together. It sounds like you've been a wonderful role model to your children!

Wow, what a loaded question! My life has not turned out anything like my 15 year old self thought it would. I would have to say no, I would not be pleased with my life based on how I thought and what I believed at the age of fifteen. For me, I think the bigger question would be if I could go back in time, would I do things different and the answer would be yes!

I know exactly how you feel. My life has not turned out anything like I thought. I guess the good news is that I still have time to work on that. I hope I can start leading myself on a path toward what I want! I hope you can too!

I had a 15 year old self in my daughter...and sometimes she liked me and sometimes she didn't Thank goodness her 16 year old self was not like mine, but anyway..great question. My 15 year old self was full of dreams and love and fire. I am a lot the same but with a bit more education and understanding in the way things are and work. I don't think she would be as disappointed as she would be confused. Sometimes we don't grow up to be just what we expected, but that is not always a bad thing.

Proud to say that my old self would like the new old me. :) I am the mirror of the challenges surpassed and battles won. I am the renewed and stronger version of me and that's because I've lived a life worthy of being cherished.
