@Leighish: Read this.

Today on twitter, a trending topic is ‘tweet your 16 year old self’ and it seems most of the people I follow are pretty darned amazing. I started thinking about what I would tell myself at age 16.

@Leighish: As hard as it is to believe, None of this is going to matter in ten years.

@Leighish: You are going to make a lot of mistakes, and it will take time but you will learn from them.

@Leighish: Nobody is going to make you feel better about yourself until you do it for yourself.

@Leighish: While you’re always going to remember their names, You’ll forget their faces.

@Leighish: Reach out, if you can. You don’t have to go through this alone. You have friends for a reason.

@Leighish: You may not believe this now, but in 5 years you’re going to be happily married.

@Leighish: in two years, you’re going to have your heart smashed by a boy you really love. You’ll recover.

@Leighish: The nightmare you’ve been living with at home will be over, but aftershocks will last for years.

@Leighish; Everything is not lost. Because, and trust me on this one, It gets better.

@Leighish: But you have to -make- it better.

@Leighish: When you meet that guy from Texas on the internet, Keep an open mind and heart. Trust me.

@Leighish: You are much stronger than you could ever imagine.

@Leighish: By the way, you make some pretty darn cute kids.

@Leighish: Hold on. The sun will shine again.
