如果可以,你想对10年前的自己说些什么?
来源:21英语网    日期: 2018-05-31

十年之前,我不认识你,你不属于我;

十年之后,我们是朋友,还可以问候 ……

陈奕迅的一首《十年》唱出了多少人的沧海桑田,

人的一生能有几个十年?过去的十年里,你又做了些什么?有了哪些改变?

今天,跟着世纪君一起看看美国版的知乎Quora网站上歪果仁朋友们的回答~


如果可能,你想对十年前的自己说什么?



我18岁,所以10年前的我8岁~想对那时的自己说:

I am 18. So, 10 years back to my 8 year old self. Here's a list of things


要去一个新学校了,别哭,几年后要离开这个学校你会哭的。

Don't cry while going to the new school you are joining, years later you will cry while leaving it.


去外面和朋友们耍耍吧,未来等着你的可是肥胖。(唔,世纪君默默低头看了看肚子上的游泳圈,这位童鞋,你真相了……)

Go and play outside with your friend because in coming years obesity is waiting for you.


别犹豫着不敢表达自己对别人的感觉,否则你可能只能在日记里写下对她的回忆了。(唔,青葱岁月的遥远往事即视感)

Don't hesitate to express your feelings for someone otherwise you will end up writing her memories in your diary.


勇于去争取自己的东西。如果不为之奋斗,事后也大可不必为此抱憾。

Fight for what's yours. If you don't put up a fight for it then there's no need to regret over it later.


做自己,不要去刻意装成别人,人们会喜欢真实的那个你~

Don't pretend who you are not. People will like you for the way you are.


不要指望运气,那样你会遭遇很多很多……

Never depend on luck, you will suffer, suffer a lot.

 

 

工作将占据你生活的一大部分时间。确保你热爱这份工作,如果不,继续找寻别的吧~

Your work will fill a major portion of your life. Make sure you love it! If not, find something you do, else keep looking.


只有当你热爱你的工作时,你才能时刻保持一颗好奇的心,四处去寻找灵感~

Look for your inspiration everywhere, and be curious always, which will only happen if you pursue your passion.


平衡工作和生活是现代社会最新的谎言!别信它?。ㄟ?,世纪君一直在努力来着……)

Work/Life balance is the new modern scam! Don’t fall for it.


 

致17岁的自己:

To my 17 y/o Self.:


别再自怨自艾!

STOP self-hating.


照顾好自己的身体,多锻炼!减肥和健身别再停留于口头啦~管住嘴迈开腿才是正理??戳宋奘柿先床桓吨钍导?,最后也不过是个营养、健身专家。而且,快到30岁时你会发现你真的浪费了太多时间。

TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY. Workout a lot. Stop just "wishing you could lose weight and get a six pack". A six pack is made at the gym/kitchen. Yeah, you're gonna read tons and tons of info... To the point of almost become a nutrition/gym expert, but... If you don't practice all you're gonna learn... And besides, when you'll be close to 30, you'll realize you have wasted A LOT OF TIME.


唔,除了锻炼,也给自己买些漂亮衣服,经常微笑,多走出去~不过可不是为了吸引男生哦,是为了自己!

Besides that... Workout, get some nice clothes, A NICE SMILE, and get out. But... Not just for the guys. DO IT FOR YOURSELF.


拜托,拜托,拜托——永远不要停止阅读和学习!

Please, please, please... NEVER stop reading. Never stop learning. Never stop studying. EVER.


无论何时,请把自己放在第一位。

Make yourself your TOP 1 Priority ALL THE TIME.


不要因为别人的否定而放弃你的音乐生涯,要知道猫王当年还被人喊过“回去开货车”呢~

Don't finish your music career just because everyone says you're talentless. Even Elvis was told to go back to "drive a truck" back in his day.


多旅旅游,即便是国内的也好~住住酒店,在不知名的小城市走走,逛逛心仪已久的商场,市场里吃顿饭,尝尝当地的啤酒……拥抱另一种文化,另一个国度~这会带给你很多很棒的回忆,也许还有不错的照片哦~

Travel: A lot. It doesn't matter if it's just nationwide. Do it. Sleep in a hostel, walk around an unknown city, go to those fancy malls you've always wanted to go. Eat at a public market. Try local beer. ...Just embrace another culture, another state, another everything! You're gonna have many great memories... And probably some good pics, if you follow my advice.


打游戏打到凌晨4点?不值得的?。ㄒ醯?0年前的“你”听了未必会信啊肿么破?。?

Playing online games till 4AM isn't worth it.


关于人际关系网,在生活的地方交些朋友吧!孤零零一个人的感觉太不爽了。找不到一个朋友聊天的感觉真不好。相信我,随着年龄的增长,这感觉会愈发强烈。

Network. Make friends. Make friends where you live. Being alone always sucks. Not having a single friend to call just to say hi... Is sad. Believe me. Especially when older.


接受你的家庭:他们或许不是最完美的人,但却是唯一陪伴你一生的人,尤其是你的妈妈和兄弟(世纪君补充:还有姐妹哦~)。

Be more open to your family: You know they're not the most perfect people, but, they're gonna be the only ones you'll have around for life. Especially your mom and your brothers.


还没遇到生命中的那个TA?别伤心。有时候一个人反而更好。

Don't get sad if you haven't got a partner yet. It's better not to have one sometimes.


 

你的人生掌握在自己手里,不要让他人掌控你的人生。尽早确定目标并为之努力奋斗,否则你可能会像我一样……(唔,这位童鞋貌似对自己不是很满意?。?

You are the one controls your life. Don't give the remote to anyone else to control your life. Set the goal as soon as possible and work hard for it or else you will end up being me


最重要的一点:对于那些你不想做的事情,要学会拒绝!

Most importantly: Learn how to say NO to things you don't want to do.


我25岁啦,想对15岁的自己说:

I'm 25 now. These are probably the advice I would have given to the “15 year old me”


不要浪费时间想别人怎么看你,你自己怎么看待自己才是最重要的。

Don't waste time thinking about what others think of you. What you think about yourself is more important.


思想和情绪是波动且相互影响的。不用去刻意控制它们,知道就好~

Your thoughts control your emotions and vice versa. Both are fluid. Don't control them, just be aware of them.


失败没那么可怕,也不能证明你的能力。

Don't take your failures too seriously. They are not a measure of your competency.


 

10年前我12岁。说来也怪,那时候的好多目标直到现在也没变。

10 years ago... I was 12. Oddly enough, when I was 12, I had many of the same goals as I do today.


去年,由于心态上的两大变化,我感觉自己的工作比之前九年都重要了。

In the last year I have "made my work matter" more than I could in the nine years prior, and that came with TWO MAJOR MINDSET SHIFTS:


三天打鱼两天晒网?可该来点儿“规矩”管管啦~

Discipline over Motivation

想要去做一件事儿很容易:看到杂志封面上的运动员你会突然也想健身,但开始一段时间后热情就会褪去甚至放弃;读了一本精彩的小说突然想要自己也写一本,但开始后觉得好累,写到第三章就放弃了……(唔,这不就是咱常说的三天打鱼两天晒网嘛~)以前的我经常寻找动力,但动力也常常褪去。真正让我把事情做好的是自律,所以培养自律很重要哦~

It's easy to get motivated to do certain things. When you see a fit athlete on the cover a magazine all of sudden you want to be fit too, so you work out for a while, but eventually the motivation fades and you give it up. When you read an amazing fiction piece, all of sudden you want to write a book, so you start to write your own, but it becomes too taxing and you stop on chapter 3. I always used to look for motivation, but motivation always fades. Discipline is what gets things done. So cultivate the skill of discipline.


瞧准机会,下决心做到最好

Determination over Opportunity 

跟前面提到的一样,十几岁时我有好多兴趣爱好,所以经常徘徊在不同的想法间寻找机会。每次看到新机会就忘了旧目标。相比于专攻一门儿做到极致,我的精力被大大分散了,结果就是啥啥都会但啥啥都不精通。

As I mentioned, throughout my teenage years I had a diverse array of interests, and so I often jumped around from idea to idea chasing the wave of opportunity. Each time I saw a new opportunity, I forgot my old goals and chased a new one. Instead of focusing on one thing and becoming the best at it, I diverted my energy to bunch of things. As a result, I became jack of all trades and a master of none.


如果10年前领悟了这些,我可能比今天掌握的技能更多。但我并不想改变什么。说了这么多,如果能回到过去,我可能不会给12岁的自己什么建议,因为他会自己领悟的。

If I could have made those two mindsets shifts 10 years ago, I would have mastered so much more than I have today, but that doesn't make me want to change anything. All said and done, if I had to go back and tell my 12 year old self what to do, I probably wouldn't tell him anything, because he'll figure it out on his own.


我只会拍拍他的背,送他一抹微笑。享受这个过程,因为那才能让你真正有所领悟。

I would just pat him on the back, and smile. Enjoy the process, because that's how you learn.


如果可以,你想对10年前的自己说点儿啥呢?
