What I’d Say to My 16-Year-Old Self


Words to a 16 year old in a hurry to be an adult

I would be sure to let myself know that I shouldn’t be so critical of everything I do. Not to put so much pressure on myself. To slow down, to not be in such a hurry to grow up and be a financial success. To stop and think through some of those decisions I made that have continued to affect my life. I’d try to be more carefree and less serious. AND I’d be sure to tell myself that I was not fat- that I was actually quite attractive. Never believed it- now I know. I was really a pretty cute little girl!

I’m the one on the right in the red toga in this picture.
