I'd remind myself not to be too self-critical. Things'll work out. :)

Calm down, and don't be so obsessed with good grades. Have more fun with your friends and spend less time worrying about projects and papers. It's all going to be ok. :)

Dear Teen Me, There is no power in giving your power away to another person. Say "no" and put some force behind it!
Love, the 40 yr old YOU!

I would tell teen me, not to care what others think so much, and definitely not to listen to anything negative!

I would ensure my teen self that it's okay to be smart, there are great reasons to earn great grades, get scholarships, and go to a good college. Being brainy is cool (as an adult!)

After just finishing my teen years I would just want myself to remember that taking more chances probably would have benefited me more. And advice for the future: just go for it, and don't let anyone stop you from achieving your dream.

Dear younger me,
Yes, it's considered bullying. You know what I mean. Stay away from boys, you'll get there eventually. Talk to your sisters like they're people. Don't stop treating your little brothers like they're awesome. They are.

I would tell my teen self to keep writing poetry. I'll laugh at my self-indulgence later, but also see how much I've grown from it.

Since I'm still a teen, I want my adult self to remember all the pain that I've endured and to remember that it will always get better.
