Young Mrs TeePot

Dear Younger Me,

I know you wont listen to your slightly older, slightly wiser self but just in case I wanted to write to you.

Firstly, look at you! You’re not fat, how I wish I could make you see that fact. You have a wonderful, curvy body and it wont be like that forever, soon you really will be fat and then you’ll long to look as you do now! Though no doubt later on in life you’ll look back on your 20’s body that you so struggled with and wish you had that body…

Secondly, go with your gut and stick to your guns. That guy you don’t want to be your boyfriend, he’s an asshat, don’t let him pester you in to it. Although hiding in the bathroom and getting your housemate to say you’re in the shower, not cool! Woman up and tell him straight.

Third up, man those skirts are short! I mean, I know they say ‘if you’ve got it, flaunt it’ but cor blimey! I’m only jealous, I wish I had the balls to wear them still!

Also, beware false friends. It seems you have a habit of attracting ‘friends’ with ulterior motives, or at the very least ones who don’t really care about you. Be careful.

Lots of love,

25 year old me.

    Teenage girls are so hard on themselves – I hope I can help my daughter be less self critical x

    Great post. Sometimes I wish I had of listened to the Right people instead of the Wrong people when I was younger, it seems that they had all the same advice that I would give myself in hindsight.

      Sadly we have to learn through our own mistakes it seems, very few people listen to the wise words from those with more experience or a better view than us.
