You are beautiful. Stunning even. Don’t listen to the girls and boys at school who say otherwise. They are wrong.
You are smart. Just because you don’t do well in exams, doesn’t mean you’re stupid. Coursework is your friend. Do it.
You are brave. You come to school every day despite knowing someone will hurt you. It may not be physical, but it hurts. Stay strong. You will get through it.
You are better than them. They may have the latest phone and be bang on trend but they don’t have a beautiful heart. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you are beautiful. And besides, it’s what’s inside that really counts.
Dont give up. Keep on being strong. Make friends with older people, you always were mature for your age.
Keep a diary. Trust me on this.
Live. Love. Laugh. Laugher really is the best medicine.
Love your future self (21 y/old 2016.)
