Messages To My Younger Self – 15.

Hello, love, it’s your best friend,

Let’s have a little chat, shall we?

Everything you want right now isn’t everything you’ll want in 8 years’ time.  And that’s OK.

You don’t have to be everything at once.  You’re not going to be a lawyer – you have neither the self-discipline nor the passion.  You don’t even want to be – and that’s OK too.  Stop doing things because you think it’s what your parents want.  All they want is for you to be healthy and happy.

You need to stop obsessing about him. He’s your best friend (yes, don’t stress, he’ll always be loyal to you) but you’re just going to push him away.  Stop getting paranoid, jealous of your skinnier friends, writing lovelorn tweets when he doesn’t walk you home one night.  You’re not Bella Swan, and he is not your Edward.

Everything doesn’t have to be a drama. Work a bit harder at school because you’ve actually got a fair bit of potential, you’re just lazy.

And give being yourself a go.
