    The person you were when you were younger.

    An example -If you could write a note to you aged 21, what would you say?

    Re: youger self

    So this question is perhaps for adults (after age 40). I mean I can say an adult (age 40 or more) "What would you say in two words if you could write a note to your younger age?" not an younger one. This kind of question fits to people who are too adults, right? I could actually sense it but I wanted to make sure as I have never met this word before.

    "What have you learned from experience that you wish you had known when you were younger?" -- that's what this question means.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
