A letter to my sixteen year old self

A Letter to Me

by Deejharrington

Dear me,
Please know you have a lot of negative forces around you, don't believe them! You do have so much going for you. In the next few years, you will wander off the right path. If you can remain true to yourself, life will not be so hard.
Laugh more, don't take yourself so seriously, and know you can do and be whatever you want. Don't let them put you in a box. Some don't think you're very intelligent, they're wrong. The boys at school are not mature enough to see your beauty, you are wonderful just the way you are. Those who are trying to keep you down, are fighting their own demons. Let them!
Keep Writing!!!! Don't stop believing, keep dreaming, never give up!
It will get easier. You will find peace of mind.
Enjoy your accomplishments! Pat yourself on the back.
One suggestion: lose the dyed blonde hair.
you a few days before your 57th birthday. And you didn't think you'd live past thirty!


There is a book out now about famous people writing letters to their 16 yr. old selves. I wanted to make it a contest, but don't have the credits. Somebody out there, it would make a great contest!
