If you could go back in time and tell your younger self the things you know now would you? Would it have made your life easier, better or less stressful in anyway?
Being a teenager feels like it was years ago now that I am in my twenties. I feel as though I have gained valuable knowledge that I could have definitely used back then.
If I could go back and talk to my teenage self, this is what I would say..
Thing’s I’d Tell My Younger Self
Explore and Experiment ! Can’t sing but want to join the choir, join it! Dreaming to become an actress, join the drama club! Highschool is our chance to try many new things, so why hold back? You’d be surprised at all the new things you are actually really good at!
Put Yourself Out There
Try new activities, make new friends, try wearing a new style! The options are endless.
I was pretty shy in highschool and really wish I hadn’t been so quiet. I wish I had voiced my opinions more and engaged more in class discussions.
You’re Your Own Worst Critic
What more can I add to that statement. Believe in yourself and just go with your gut!
Your Heart Will Get Broken… But It Will Heal
Highschool lovers barely ever make the final cut. Your first heartbreak will be the hardest but you will pick yourself up and eventually love again.
The Mirror Lies
Beauty truly comes from within and don’t believe anything different. We all are beautiful and unique in our own ways. Don’t believe everything you hear and see.
Follow Mom’s Advice
I know how uncool it is to actually speak to your parents about anything in highschool. But guess what, your parents were probably right. My mom is one of my best friends and her advice would have helped me through a lot back then.
No Dream Is Unattainable
Set yourself reasonable goals and challenge yourself to reach them. Nothing will come to you if you expect to do nothing to earn it.
Try something new or do something that scares you. Don’t limit yourself to things just because it’s new or intimidating. It all comes back down to, try, try, try!
Don’t sweat the small stuff! You will get over that boy, make new friends and learn from your mistakes. It takes more muscles in your face to frown then it does to smile, so keep on smiling!
