'Don't care about what people think of you' – What would you tell your 14-year-old self?

Sometimes you wish you could turn back time and do things differently.

Maybe you would be nicer to your parents, or perhaps you wouldn't have spent so long in that toxic relationship.

Independent.ie took to the streets of Dublin to ask people what advice they would give to their 14-year-old self.

"Don't start smoking," "stay in school," and "don't care about what other people think of you" were just some of the words of wisdom people gave with the benefit of hindsight behind them.

While most are happy with the paths they chose, they still would have done some things differently.
