I would say “In about 6 months, you’ll meet the man you’re going to marry!”

I’d also tell myself to watch my weight… that was about the age that I started to get big.

Come out of that shell NOW, as opposed to waiting til college. Once I opened up I had such a blast. Wish I had done it sooner.

Oh wow, I would shake her and tell her to quit obsessing and that plenty of people will find you attractive one day. Hey, you’ll even get married to this awesome dude some day, so STOP WORRYING.

I was a very insecure, kind of plain-looking teenager convinced that no guy would ever love me, I’d die alone, etc etc.

Oh, and stop letting Grandma do your hair. Yes you love her, yes she owns a salon and does this for a living, yes all her clients are senior citizens and you need someone who styles hair for younger women!!

FH and I first dated when I was 15, so this could be interesting. 

I’d probably tell myself that I really was going to marry him, but it’d be a long and bumpy road.

I’d tell myself to save my kisses and my overly flirty comments for guys I actually liked. 

Not to quit dance.

To stop worrying about what I was going to major in. 

To keep writing my book series. 

And that it’s better to have no friends than bad ones.

I would tell myself that just because I haven’t had a boyfriend yet doesn’t mean I’m ugly or worthless.

I spent a lot of time feeling bad because all my friends had boyfriends in high school, and I never had one til I was 17-18! I didn’t realize I was missing a lot of unnecessary drama and heartbreak.

I would say:

Stop being such a b*tch all the time, especially to your mother.

Don’t worry someday boys will like you, and if you are more confident and less crazy it will happen sooner.

Basically don’t worry so much in general.

“THIS IS NOT THE PERSON YOU WILL MARRY. WALK AWAY FROM HIS TERRIBLE, CONTROLLING ATTITUDE. But that boy you think is SO cute and that you have a huge crush on? HE is. Oh, and your mom won’t find out if you don’t follow every rule.” 😉

To never stop trying to find out why my cycles were irregular.  Then maybe I would have known about PCOS earlier and been farther on this journey.
