Oh well..im happy to be able to pass on the wisdom ive learned in my short 22 yrs,if it can help...end of my lil bored rant/topic,you may no commemce the reply's

At least you are learning from your mistakes/bad choices. Too many never do.

This is actually a good thing I think. I'm 27, and have made some mistakes (mostly financial) and I try to help those younger than me to keep from making the same mistakes I did. Too many of them don't listen. I'm still recovering from my mistakes, and I'm almost out of the grave (my credit still sucks though)

My inlaws are twice my age, made the same mistakes, watched me do the same, and they are STILL doing the same stupid stuff. Now they are completely flat broke and busted, and looking at living on the street. They want help from me, and I simply can't give it to them, because I have to look out for me and mine first and I don't have the money to spare. Some people never learn.

Lucky for you and I, we HAVE learned from our own experiences and are still plenty young enough to put our lessons to good use.

I've been there. I found it to be a bit annoying when I was younger. The thing to remember is that those lecturing are trying to help you. Now, you are in the opposite position, I assume that you are trying to help those you find youself lecturing. It's not a bad thing. Would you sleep better letting little Johnny stick his winky in a buzzsaw if you thought your advice could prevent it?
Don't sweat it. My son says that I'm starting to sound like Walter (Jeff Dunham's puppet) more everyday. Life's like that.

I'll tell you something that I've come to learn in my 24 years on this god forsaken planet, "I hate regrets more than apologies".

It's funny you say that. My name is Walter and I've been accused of sounding and looking like him too (apparently I have a grumpy face that's real similar to his regular face)

Good judgment comes from experience. Experience most often comes as a result of a lot of bad judgment.

When someone older than you who is, in your opinion, reasonably successful tries to share their experience with you in order to help you, listen. In my youth, I resented being lectured. I wish I had listened more closely now that I'm in my mid-40s. It would have saved me several years of screw-ups.

Passing experience on to younger folks is normal. Don't feel bad about it. Learning how to do it in a way the person will be receptive to you is the real trick.
