Not A Typical Teenager: Dear Me

Dear Me

This post is for me, and what I would tell myself if I could back 3 years ago. Just a general rambling in all honesty. But read on if you want some possible motivation.

You. Are. Worth. It.

I know that this is hard for you to see now, but you are worth it. You are about to make some amazing friends who you will have so many adventures with. People who will appreciate you being around; people who even miss you when you aren't. You will help people out of the deepest holes. Next summer will be your best so far.

You haven't even thought about blogging or writing music at this point have you? You think that orchestra is the only thing that you can do musically? You think that you'll always have those vile abominations that give you a funny jaw line? You think that the boy you 'like' at the minute is worth it?

The next 3 years of your life will be the best. You will realize that you cannot be beautiful to everyone; but that doesn't mean that you aren't beautiful; because you are. There is someone who tells you that everyday. You have some fantastic friends who don't just tolerate you; they like you!

Your parents will remain incredibly supportive and believe it or not, Dad doesn't threaten to kill your boyfriend. However, he will pay you generously for your kick ass exam results.

You will spend so much of your time and money in Costa, but you will have some of the best memories there. You'll get a boyfriend! I know, crazy. You are happy without him, but that doesn't mean that he doesn't make you happy.

Some things will never change though, so just remember to cherish the girl who put a scalpel in your leg; because even though you will make some fantastic friends who you wouldn't change for the world, she was there first. Before any of the others, she was there. Keep her close.

Love you lots,

  1. Oh dear God the scalpel story never fails to make me giggle. Yeah, you keep that boyfriend too missus, he is a keeper indeedy, even if you do piss each other off from time to time.

    I can vouch that I've made some amazing friends too, love you lots xx

    1. It is funny now. I am looking to keep hold of him, even though he pisses me off.

      And well obvs, because now we have eachother *bursts out in the toy story theme "you got a friend in me"*

  2. What a lovely, thoughtful post!
    It's always important to reflect and to tell yourself some nice things now and again.

    Oh, and I nominated you for the Liebster Award here!
