According to the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows this is the bittersweetness of having arrived here in the future, where you can finally get the answers to how things turn out in the real world—who your baby sister would become, what your friends would end up doing, where your choices would lead you, exactly when you’d lose the people you took for granted—which is priceless intel that you instinctively want to share with anybody who hadn’t already made the journey, as if there was some part of you who had volunteered to stay behind, who was still stationed at a forgotten outpost somewhere in the past, still eagerly awaiting news from the front.
I actually do like this one a lot. “If you could advise your younger self what would you say?” Such a common question. If only our younger selves knew how things would actually turn out.
At the moment life may not be perfect but it is worth believing that it will get better someday.

Thanks for sharing Kevin! I had no idea the Backstreet Boys are back for real – I know they reunited for a little bit. Now I feel super old. I remember my sister lining her walls with Backstreet Boys posters… almost 20 years ago in 1999. :0
Lol. They sound so different here but their music is really good as always.
