Dear 16 year old me,
Wussup nigga? lol
I know school isnt easy but what im facing now is alot tougher so i guess you kinda had it easy.
i know most times you are confused about things but let me just say that at some point you wont be confused anymore because God will be there to guide you.

I also know most times you dont feel pretty, because of all that acne, and all of your scars. but guess what? its all gone! well most of it is
I know youre not confident because you think that there are some people better than you. The thing is NOBODY can make you feel inferior apart from yourself. Just chin up, stand up straight and walk tall! (like a boss) (because you will be a boss someday)

Remember you were sad because that stupid coach made you a class prefect instead of Health prefect?
Well lets thank God he made you class prefect because if that didnt happen you wouldnt have met one of your closest friends.

Remember how you used to starve yourself and drink only water because you wanted to be skinny.
Well darling, lets just say that you are never going to be skinny and i'm just glad that at this point you are (almost) happy with your body and you are learning to love and accept it the way it is.

Remember your favorite song was Green day's Boulevard of Broken dreams? beacause you used to walk alone?
Well your favorite song now is 'What the hell' by Avril Lavigne

And all the fine boys that you are always looking for up and down, they are not fine anymore...Foreeall. in fact at some point, you will start looking for ugly boys because those fine boys are just not worth the stress.

Also stop trying to be a grown up, with all your schedules and what not, just live freely and be spontaneous, the best things in life come in the strangest ways
Its just weird that you used to let the smallest things bring you down and make you sad
and i know you used to act like the coolest kid on the block on the outside but i know how you were feeling inside.

One more thing. You suck at sports, especially basketball. But thank God we didnt give up because we got the chance to go to so many schools and meet so many people.

Be happy! Because now that youve grown and lived a little you are a better person.
From your 19 year old self ^_^
