Things I'd Tell My Teenage Self

1. "Ignorance is a bliss. Every body always has something to say from their point of view but the thing is not all of them are the same. You don't have to listen to every single thing people say about you, it is okay to be just the "you" version of you. What people say about you does not matter, it doesn't define who you are anyway."

2. "Live with no regrets. As they say everything happens for some reasoning, what you decided has made you who you are now. It is okay that you made mistakes, who didn't? At the end, you'll be thankful that you made mistakes, because you learned things from them. Because sometimes people just don't learn until they make mistakes, do they?"

3. "Trying too hard just to fit in is never necessary. Being the popular kid with hell lot of friends does not always mean having the best life. It is okay if you just have a few friends, as long as they can accept you and your silly acts, without trying to change things about you."

4. "No boy is worth your teenage years. No no, I didn't say that, it is Hayley who did. But you know what, she is right about that. It is the time for you to go explore the world, and to explore yourself as well. Go outside and find out new things are everywhere waiting for you to be discovered. Play, have fun and laugh as hard as you can. Love can wait, there will be time for it, maybe later."

5. "Take more pictures. Moments eventually will turn themselves into memories so the best thing you can do about it is to capture them and keep them as the sweetest memories. Yes, even selfie's with the camera so close with your face (like what you always did) is acceptable".

6. "School grades is not that important, not that much. I'm telling you this not because you did care so much about it though, well great job you did there. Very well done, my friend."

7. "People change, so do you. Those whom you thought will be like your BFF, guess what - they aren't here anymore. It's okay, no need to freak out. It is just a part of the process of growing up that you are being put into."

8. "Don't change because people told you to. Change because you wanted to, change because you wanted to become better, change because you know it's good for you."

9. "Listen to Pa and Ma. Let me tell you something scary but true: parents are always right. Even when they are not, what they prioritize is always things that will do you good. Even when you really feel like not listening, tell them and listen to what they have to say."

10. "What's it with the zig zag fringe? Just why? LOL."

11. "Time heals everything. When I say everything, believe me it is true. Even when you're feeling shitty about your life, the good news is it won't last long, well not for too long - at least. The next day, it will feel a lot better. If it does not, see again the next day."

12. "Thank you, you did well. Even with everything weird you did, how crazy you may turn out to be, of all mistakes you have done, every choice you made, I am proud of you."
