As teenagers, we have all sorts of ideas of what our life will be like when we grow up.
Living in our dream home, with our dream spouse and working at our dream job, essentially without a fear or care in the world.
Needless to say, life doesn't always turn out the way we expect it to.
Leading us to wonder, how would our teenage selves react to the lives we currently lead?
Redditor Jay-ay was eager to know the answer to this question, leading them to ask:

There can't be many people who are living the exact life they had planned out for themselves when they were 15.
But whatever your 15-year-old self might think of the life you currently lead, all we can do is live in the moment.
So if you are happy with your current life, whether or not it's what you expected, that's all that matters.
