This Is The Most Common Piece of Advice Women Wish They Could Give Their Younger Selves

And the one you should start telling yourself — immediately.

Every once in a while, we all experience a moment where we wish we could go back in time and speak to our younger selves. Maybe we'd warn ourselves of a future event, try to dissuade ourselves from getting that one tragic haircut, but most likely, we'd simply want to give ourselves some advice. 


That was the task BBC Woman's Hour posed to a group of celebrity women. While each shared some pretty sage advice with their former selves, that wasn't even the most impressive part of this exercise. Instead, it was this singular phenomenon where nearly every woman, regardless of her background, occupation, or age, shared the same piece of advice:

Since the video was posted on August 23, it's received some additional — not to mention, awesome — responses from women all over the world.

And while no one can change their past, this is one piece of advice anyone can — and everyone should — use to better their present selves every day.
