Dear Young Me,
 You're going to discover that the most rewarding part of your education was the time you spent away from school. Don't let it define who you are; nobody else judges you by that standard.

Dear Young Me,
 Yes, I got your letter from the time capsule. Do not be so excited about that trip to the theme park. You don't go on any rides that day. Thankfully, you will eventually. Smile more. Things are not nearly as bad as you might think they are.
-Love, Me/You/Still me
Dear Young Me,
 don'y ever go near razor blades. you'll regret it when you have scars running up and down your body.
-i was pretty stupid
Dear 16 year old self,
 You get the man of your dreams. Glad you didn't go out with the morons that liked you. . . saves you from telling a lot of awkward stories.
-the person that you wanted to be
Dear Young Me,

-sincerely, i'm fucked now anyway
Dear Young Me,
 There will be hard times. Just know you get through it. You also meet some incredible people in the mean time and travel to eleven countries.
-Older Me
Dear Young Me,
 I know it seems like your parents don't love you. They do, but don't know how to tell you. Show them how.
-Older Me
Dear Young Me,
 Stop obsessing over some guy who you think is so perfect. Learn to see what is actually in front of you instead of what you want to see.
-moving on to better things
