DEAR 11 YEAR OLD ME…

Hey, I think there’s some things you need to know.

This is temporary, life is temporary it’s not going to last forever, school isn’t going to last forever, you only have to be there for six more years, make the most of this because one day you’re going to look back on this time and long for everything that once was.

Everything happens for a reason no matter how crappy it feels right now, trust me. All the experiences friendships and mistakes are going to make you who you are either learn to appreciate it or waste your time complaining about what could’ve been. Be who you really are and stay true to that girl regardless of what people may think and say about you. These people’s opinions won’t matter to you in 5 years time or even next week. So stop worrying about looking cool and do what you love. As long as it makes you happy and doesn’t hurt anybody you’re doing the right things. Your life is too precious to be spent pursuing the approval of everybody you come into contact with, you won’t and that’s not necessarily bad.

Friends, they’re supposed to be friends who accept, love and want the best for you, don’t feel like you owe the people wo are negative influences In your life anything. That’s not what friendship is about. Be yourself and you will attract the people who are supposed to be in your life. Never feel obligated to keep negative people in your life,  you become the people that surround you so choose the right ones because it’s so hard to get back to who you really are after

Be nice to people, be nice to people, BE NICE TO PEOPLE! even If they’re nothing like you, live differently to you or you just simply don’t like them. Everybody is fighting their own battles. You’re going to meet a lot of people who you won’t like in the next few years but remember that they’re people too and deserve to be treated with love and respect just like you. If what you’re saying is just going to tear someone down rather than building them and helping them to grow, just don’t say anything at all. If all you radiate is negative energy that’s all you’re going to get back. Stop trying to be somebody else it’s tiring and really not worth the time it takes trying to change who you are.

Grades aren’t everything but at the end of the day you are at school, for free, to learn. Make the most of it because you’re going to be there regardless. Appreciate and take advantage of the opportunities’ available to you. If you have to do something, do it to the very best of your ability and try to make the most of it. There are things in this life that you and can’t change. If you can change it go for it make your life better if you can’t change it change your attitude and see it as a bump in the road on the way to what you actually want.

Life is fleeting you don’t know when this is going to end, it could be over before you finish reading this so make the most of it, try to be hopeful even when the situation leaves you inclined to feel otherwise. I know this is such a cliche thing to say but honestly, life isn’t about how to survive the storm, how to just get by without causing any damage, it’s about learning to dance in the rain, loving people fiercely, living with passion and striving towards your best self. Take a deep breath take it all in remember you are beautiful, kind, smart, creative and capable.

Good luck, I know you’ll  do incredible things.
