I think there are definitely things he’d be disappointed in. There’d be things he’d be surprised about. But I think overall he’d be pretty happy with where he’ll be in 11 or so years. I pretty much stayed true to myself and didn’t let bullshit change me. Though he’d definitely be surprised at the swear words, haha.
This is an excellent question to ask yourself. I recommend everyone think long and hard about it. And if the answer is predominantly “no” then what are you going to do change that? Do you think you need to change? Is it a bad thing that your 8-year-old self would disapprove? Would they understand? Or does this mean that you are in a place right now that you shouldn’t be? In fact, the same thought process can be applied to if you found the answer to be a “yes”. Time for some self-reflection.
