Dear 16 year old me,

 

Don’t be so concerned with what other people may think about you. Just have fun!

Dear 16 year old me,

Getting into fights everyday is not true love, leave him because you deserve more than to be sitting in the drive way crying because he was an ass.  You are pushing your family away and turning into a bitch because you are constantly trying cover up the fights.  It will hurt to leave him but you will be so much happier later. 

P.S. your bestfriend that you are secretly in love with is the man you will marry 🙂

Dear 16-year-old me,

    You know the night you and your best friend are going to say you are spending the night at each other’s houses so you can go out and get into trouble? You’re going to get caught.

     Be nice to your parents. You are making them crazy with worry, and you’re going to feel like a terrible person for it one day.

     You know that boy who you like but think doesn’t like you? He does. You should just kiss him.

    Your friends are not nearly as important as you think they are.

Dear 16 year old me,

Please take school more seriously. You don’t realize it now, but the debt for the fun you are having today will need to be paid in your late 20’s.

Start exercising now so that when you are older it will be as natural to you as breathing.

Stay close to your best friend. There are some issues there that need to be dealt with if you want your friendship to be resilient

Lastly, focus on all of your friendships and not boys. High School is for meeting your bridesmaids not your husband.

Dear 16-Year-Old Me,

 

I know you’re pretty heartbroken right now about losing the person who you thought was your best friend. I know you’re mad about who she has become, messing around with the feelings of various guys, especially one you really, really liked. I know you’re worried and lonely now that she’s gone. 

 

Karma, baby.

 

Just like the others, she won’t be any good for him. He’ll be just as lonely as worried as you are, come prom. But you’ll dance together, and all will be forgiven. You both come out of it so much better than before.

 

You’re a bridesmaid in his wedding next month, and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of what the two of you have accomplished. 

 

– Miss Radish

Stop sassing your mom and thank her for not signing the tattoo consent form. None of the girls who got the matching “BFF” tattoos even talk to eachother when they’re 30.

Dear 16 year old me,

All those jerks in highschool (the ones who talk about you behind your back) will grow up, move out of our small town and realize they really aren’t anything special. You should realize it now. Also, don’t date Jose or Edwin, both will cheat on you. And finally, please realize that everything that seems SO important now really isn’t, so quit worrying about it!

Love 35 year old you 🙂

Dear 16-year-old me,

 

Have a little fun.  You will still get into college if you get a B on one test one time. 

 

And that guy you think is this close to realizing you’re soul mates is just not that into you.  You won’t meet your actual soul mate for 6 more years, but he is SO much better!

 

Oh, and don’t try to read the directions and eat chickfila on a rainy night when you’re a new driver trying to sneak out to see that guy when you’re supposed to be at a sleepover. You will crash, and dad will still bring it up, ten years later.

Dear 16 year old me,

 

stop worrying so much about what peoplE think. Apply for colleges outside of the city. Don’t go to that one college just because your boyfriend did, because he ends up breaking your heart. Make more girl friends and stay in touch with them (I know it’s hard because you tend to be a loner). Live life, be happy and stop worrying so much!

 

love,

29 year old me

Dear 16 year old me,

You ARE making a bitch face ALL the time. Stop it! No one likes a sulky teenager.

Oh and enjoy your abs.
