What advice would you give to your teenage self?

Dear teenage me: you’ll figure it out.

I’d never wish I knew something sooner, because if I learned it sooner, I’d probably still wish I learned it sooner than that.

So, past-self, be glad that you did learn it when you did, and trust that all the other confusing things will sort themselves out eventually.

Dear teenage me: things can, in fact, get a lot harder. But you’ll figure it out, and you’ll survive, and someday the collective self of us will do a whole lot better than survive the storms of life.
