Dear Young Me,
 Don't fall for the cute guy on the bike ride. He will break your heart multiple times before you get the nerve to move on.
-Wasted two years of college w/him
Dear Young Me,
 Thank you for sticking it out in the worst of times. You're 21 now and still struggling a little bit, but I want you to know you would be damn proud of yourself. The great future you seek is really close, just 11 months away. It's beautiful. Hang in there. No one will stop you but you.
-looking in the mirror and smiling
Dear Young Me,
 When you fall in love with him, listen to you heart. Don't sabotage it. Give your all. Because he got tired of chasing you. And you chased him too late.
-You never get over him.
Dear Young Me,
 Tell her not to take that road trip. We miss her everyday.
- should have been a better friend
Dear Young Me,
 Don't be embarressed by your red hair, your friends may give you crap and joke, but more than a handful of guys you do and don't know will tell you it's sexy. Stop dying it brown. Embrace it.
-I love it now
Dear Young Me,
 Don't underestimate yourself; you are an amazing and strong person. Stop comparing yourself to people who are nothing like you. You can do anything you set your mind to. I believe in you.
-Signed, Your Older and Wiser Self
Dear Young Me,
 Reach out, be confident, meet people.
-Older me with no friends.
Dear Young Me,
 don't be so eager to grow up...and remember that sometimes saying "no" is a good thing.
-your finally healing older self
