Dear Young Me,
 Don't have unprotected sex. It will cause so much more pain than pleasure, and the effects will stay with you forever.
-Your older, but still hurting self
Dear Young Me,
 Don't trust your so-called best friend in middle school. A year later, she finds new friends in high school and brings them to your house to spray paint it. You will never feel more betrayed. I suggest you let the principal know you think it's her. I kept my mouth shut and regret it every day.
-Scared to walk alone
Dear Young Me,
 Open your eyes. She's standing right next to you. She's already at your side. Don't cheat on her. You'll only hurt yourself in the end.
-Only a few months older
Dear Young Me,
 It'll get better. It always gets better. Always.
-Older Me.
Dear Young Me,
 Stop planning where life is going. Cause baby, It's all gonna change. Slow down and appreciate the here and now. Relax, take it easy, and stop worrying so damn much. OH and take some time from work off 60 hours a week is a tab excessive.
-Getting a little better each day
Dear Young Me,
 Life is full of great endeavors, always remember the truth is a powerful thing and being able to tell it shows what a virtuous person you are. Don't always listen to people too literally, learn that you must make your own choices to better prepare you. Also if you hit a car, please tell someone!
-Older Me
Dear Young Me,
 Don't be afraid, he can't hurt you, TELL SOMEONE. If you wait too long, no one will believe you, not even mommy.
-Older, wiser, sadder.
Dear Young Me,
 Be nice to the girl you lose your virginity to. You end up with her. (PS: Not even kidding, kiddo.)
-Sincerely, Mr. Older You
