Things I'd Tell My Younger Self

  1. Take that risk and tell the boy you like him! You are going to wonder for the rest of your life if you don't, and you never know... it could work out. If it doesn't, it's not a big deal because at least you won't wonder what he would've said for the rest of your life. 
  2. Stop torturing your family members by playing Lee Harding's debut album (and only album) on repeat. 
  3. Learn to drive when you're 16. If you leave it too long you'll wish you had learned earlier. 
  4. You're not as ugly as you think you are. The only thing that makes you ugly is your attitude and you can fix that if you try. 
  5. Take a camera to grade 10 camp; you'll wish you had pictures of those incredible moments if you don't. 
  6. The people who are mean to you aren't worth stressing over. I know you don't worry about them too much, but don't give them any power to affect you. You're strong enough to deal with any hurtful things they say. 
  7. Look into spirituality and delve into new age topics. You'll really enjoy that and find a lot of strength through your spiritual development. 
  8. I know you hate having to speak in front of lots of people and speeches at school are particularly bad, but honestly nobody is paying attention or will remember that speech.
  9. Don't be stubborn to the point that it stops you from doing what's best for you. Yes, you're right the vast majority of the time about things but you're not in the right 100% of the time and that's okay because you're still learning. Sometimes other people do know best.  
  10. You might be able to speed up the healing process in regards to the loss of your dad if you go through old photo albums and documents of his. Just know that more of him will be revealed to you throughout the years and once you open up a dialogue with people instead of shutting them down you'll be able to realise that he still lives on in people's hearts and memories. 
Please let me know in the comments what you would tell your younger self. ♥
