Teen years are the most difficult years of your life, I mean honestly looking back, they were when I made some incredible memories but it is definitely a time when there were raging hormones, secrets, romance, you name it, it was all happening.
Dear younger me,
Honestly there are going to be moments when you’ve just had enough, you feel like you can’t physically give any more but I promise you it gets better. There will be moments when people try to bring you down, to try and upset you, hurt you, even take advantage of the nice person that you genuinely are, but they aren’t worth the time of day. Those are the kinds of people that you don’t need in your life, they are the kind of toxic people you don’t need, you are a strong, independent and wonderful person who deserves the world.
When it comes to love, yes you will get your heart broken, unfortunately it is a painful lesson that at some point we all have to learn, but it will make you a stronger person. Heart break is one of the worst feelings in the world, you feel like your heart is being ripped at your chest, however it gets better! You will meet someone in your life that will honestly steal your heart and you will experience a love that doesn’t even compare to any other love you have ever had.
Sometimes when you’re a teen you don’t appreciate your family, especially when you have your mum and dad who genuinely adore you. You take it for granted, because I know I did, but that doesn’t mean you don’t love them any less. Make time for your family, spend time with them, make memories, because these are the times that will mean the most to you.
Appreciate all of the incredible friends that you have, you have so many amazing people around you, and you will never understand how much you will need them in your life. They will support you through your most difficult times, dry your tears, and appreciate you for the fabulous person you are.
You might have been through hell over the last few years, so much has happened, but remember that you will get through this. It isn’t easy, it will be hell sometimes, but never forget you have so many people around you who will love you with all their heart.
Don’t look back at the past, the past is done, over with, you can’t change it even if you might want to, but it’s time to make the most of your future. You have so much to look forward to in your life, and never forget that just because you have had a difficult past it doesn’t mean that you can’t create a beautiful future.
Love an older, married and happy Amie.
