If I could write a letter to my younger self, it would go something like this..
OI YOU LITTLE BITCH!..
-You are always good enough.. never listen to the few idiots who try to make you feel less of a person, they are projecting their own issues on you, and they are also arseholes.
-your mum is always right, apart from thinking you like eggs, she won’t remember this until you hit 28 and by that time you won’t actually mind them
-you will loose that ‘puppy fat’ and when you look back, you will realise you were never really fat anyway!
-get rid of the negative influences in your life sooner rather than later
-when you get that first working pay check, for god sake stay away from new look!
-coming second is a big achievement..especially when it’s to someone who is just as creative and ridiculously talented, it’s something to be proud of, nothing to be embarrassed of.
-it’s ok to cry & show emotion, it’s totally ok to ‘cry like a girl’ as you bloody are one!
-what ever you do, do not let that dinner lady force you to eat cauliflower cheese..it doesn’t end well
-be yourself, don’t be so shy and embarrassed. There is nothing wrong with standing out from the crowd.
-everything will make sense in a few years, all of those gut feelings and niggling thoughts will make sense
-massive hoop earrings are a major faux par
-as is pulling your socks over your finest Lacoste tracky pants
-you will find your place one day, no more longing of a place to fit in, you will finally find the right fashion sense through vintage everything!
-that empty space you feel that needs filling, will become whole once you start to love yourself ❤
-stop ironing your hair immediately, one day you will want those curls back
-it’s ok not to have a plan, you don’t have to go to uni or college straight away, enjoy being young and free!
And last but not least..
DONT RUN IN CLOGGS YOU DAFT COW!!
