dear younger me,
 you're cool, trust me
-older (cool) you
dear mat!,
 exams will pass. have fun and don't worry! 14.6.2011.
Dear Young Me,
 Dry up your tears, stand up straighter, and stay strong. Your brother will get sober, you wont call these people friends in a few years, mama will smile again, and the man you have been looking so hard for will show up, literally, the minute you stop searching.
-Happier than I have ever been
Dear Young Me,
 Do not under any circumstances give in. Stand your ground. You'll get through it in the end. P.S. Leave the pills in the bottle and not in your stomach. It's not worth it.
-Slightly older me
Dear Young Me,
 Two years was a really long time to love someone. You can still love him, but realize that he was never the one. But trust me, there is a boy your waiting for you that will love you forever.
-In your best interests
Dear Young Me,
 Ignore the guy who hugs you outside of the booth freshman year. He hurts you. And you never date him anyway.
-Still being played
Dear Young Me,
 You ARE pretty. You are not just average. Oh, and stop being afraid of what people think. They tend to like you better when you don't care and are free.
-Breaking out of my shell
Dear Young Me,
 Don't listen to them. They don't understand that the most important form of education happens outside the classroom. Only you understand how badly you need to follow your dreams - how badly you need to get out there. You won't regret it, just don't stop until you're ready.
