Ignoring paradoxes and the like, imagine your future self walks into the room, provides overwhelming evidence that they are in fact a future incarnation of you.

They then tell you to do something you would NEVER decide to do on your own (e.g. quit your awesome job, divorce your wonderful spouse, murder someone, poke out your own eyes, take your pick). They promise that it will all work out for the best if you.

Do you do it? Do you trust yourself?


See, I was going to go back in time and tell younger me to [redacted] but then future me appeared and told me not to.



('Cuz I (over)think about this stuff probably too much and the thing is that even the stuff I did that I now recognise as a mistake isn't so bad that I wouldn't know if doing it differently wouldn't be a net loss.

Really, all I would tell younger me is "[relationship] wasn't really working and had no future" and "get tested for ADHD.")
