To My 15 Year Old Self

Dear Lisa

I know things are tough right now, really tough, and I'd like to tell you that things get easier. They do, but not for a while yet and you may feel sometimes that you are all alone. But you're not. When times get bleak, look to your family. They are the ones that will be around, keep you grounded and love you. Don't be afraid to tell them how you feel, you may be surprised at what you get in return. And those silly girls who make you feel so  bad are not worth your time, in the future they will be long gone and you will meet people who will love you for you, and be proud to do so. 

It will take a while to figure it all out, to find your path and to find yourself, in fact fifteen years later and you'll still be working on it. But during those fifteen years you will go through some amazing times that will make you and fulfil many of your dreams. You will meet the most amazing man you will ever know. Seriously. You will get married, have a dream honeymoon, buy a big house, live in America and have the children I know you desire already. Two - one of each. And they are beautiful and they make every day worth getting better for.

Don't be in such a hurry to grow up, cherish your days of freedom, carefree and full of energy. There are lots of days ahead to get old. 

It doesn't matter what ANYONE tells you about you. However you deal with things is ok, it is right for you even if people make you feel it's wrong. Live your life for you and you alone, it's the only way to be happy.

You will question yourself a lot. You will feel a failure. You will try so damn hard to please everyone and forget about yourself. But in the end you will realise life can't be figured out so fast, it is a journey. So buckle up and try to enjoy it. Thirty comes round bloody fast.
