Dear 16 Year-Old Me,

I know you’re hurt, I know you feel like nobody can understand you, but you’re wrong… You are a beautiful person and you have to believe it! No matter what people can say, no matter how mean they can be, you just have to ignore them and be yourself. I know it will take some times, but you will eventually overcome this, but for that to happen you have to forget about what is said about you and just do you.

Of course there are prettier girls or skinnier girls out there, but that doesn’t mean that you’re ugly. You think that your friends are prettier and skinnier than you but it really doesn’t matter Dee, they love you for who you are, and you should too! So stop being confined in that wall that you built around you and let people know the amazing girl that you are. Believe me, it will get better, IT WILL GET BETTER; you will reach a point where you will feel comfortable in your body (yes, your body that you hate so much) and you will even wear things that you couldn’t even imagine wearing at home ;)

Remember how you always wear weircolorful stuff that sometimes don’t even look good together? (Or so you think but you don’t care)The only thing where you know you just love even if you don’t know why?  It will always be something people will notice about you and you should not stop being colorful because it is part of who you are and what makes YOU.

You don’t trust people and that’s really sad. I know you went through hard stuff and betrayal, but you shouldn’t generalize it to everyone. There are some people out there who deserve a chance, so let go of the past and move on.

Remember how you feel so uncomfortable talking to guys? Well, let me tell you that two of your best friends will be guys. That must sounds crazy to you right know but believe me, you will get better at talking with people. You will even be best friend with someone you never thought you would. Remember how you thought nobody would love you, you got it wrong too sweetie! You will find love, but I won’t tell you more. I want you to feel the moment and not be worried about when and how it’s going to happen, just believe in yourself okay?

See? Life is beautiful, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. You will struggle like everybody, but you will succeed believe me! And btw you are fluent in English now, isn’t that crazy? Haha

Love from your 20ish self,


This Tag was from My Style Loveletters and she basically tagged everyone who read it, and I was so touched and felt like I had to do it! And seriously it made me feel so much better afterwards, it's like I needed to express this. Anyway, that's quite personal, but I felt like sharing this with you people.
I also tag everyone who read it! If you do it, give me the link!

  3. Oh my word if I wasn't at work right this moment I'd be bawling!!! This was so beautiful! I think it touched me the most because I think for the longest time, since I was about 13 I've been that Diane. I thought I'd do one to my 15 year old self when I saw Phylicia Rashad's one. This was really beautiful.

    Love from Jo'burg

  5. You are definitely beautiful! I've learned not to compare myself with other girls; it's not worth it. I'm me and no one can be like me. It's good to embrace who you are; you deserve it.
