Watching someone younger do something comically dumb is an ironic ordeal. When I observe these things I consider
That person is you. not only when you were younger, but now. The way we do or go about something now our older self will most undoubtedly look back and go "wow" I did that.
We are only self-aware when the painful truth of embarrassment arises in us
we have remembered something that brings us a moment of clarity about past actions, however what of the future?
Do something today that your future self will be impressed with.
