Advice To My 16-Year-Old Self

February 21, 2018

Does anyone actually wish they were still 16 years old? It wasn't the best time for me. I decided that for today's post I wanted to have a little chat with my 16-year-old self, and to give her some much-needed advice. 

Things will get worse.

Sorry to break it to you kid, you've got a rough few years ahead of you. You'll lose loved ones, you'll lose a friend, and your relationship will progressively get worse, and worse, and worse. But let's forget about that for a second. 

Right now you're around a year into your relationship, with a boy whos a little older than you, everything you ever wanted, or so we thought. By the way, older does not mean better. Part of me wants to tell you to leave, get out of this and run as far away as you can from this boy who might just make you feel like he's ruined your life (he hasn't by the way, don't be so dramatic), but I won't. Because I know now, that the pain is temporary. You'll get back with him too, once you've broken up.

You see, this relationship is important for us in the long run, so just stick with it. Because even though things will get worse, they will get better. You'll learn a lot.

Regarding David.

Please make more of an effort. He won't be around forever and you need to make the most of the time we have left with him. Send him a message, maybe even call him. You'll regret it in the long-run.

Stop eating so much junk food.

For the love of god please, please stop ruining my body. Just stop. Also, get more exercise. I hate you now for what you helped me do. It really does get harder to lose weight the older you get, it's not just something people say.
