You’ve just entered the teenage. As scary as it seems, I promise you it isn’t as terrifying than being half a year away from sixteen! Time goes so quickly, so here’s some advice.
1. Be the tortoise, not the hare. You have a tendency to rush into things without thinking first. The moment you have a thought in your head, there’s no removing it. By wanting to see the outcome of every experience you make, you don’t get to enjoy it. Memories are blurred because you didn’t take a breath and look around you. Slow and steady is better than tripping over your feet at the finish line.
2. Think before you leap, and I mean really think. Just because you’re scared, doesn’t mean you have to go into to fight or flight mode. Because let’s face it, you go for the easier option every time.. Flight. Every moment of the next few years will bring new opportunities, sometimes they won’t be good ones! Actually, most of the time you should stick to the path instead of stopping to stair at roses with thorns that will only make you bleed. Just because you like the idea of something, doesn’t mean you have to dive in the deep end without testing the water first.
3. Let it go! Grudges get you no where, if anything you’re only hurting yourself by keeping them memories in your mind! Let your fears go. You can let people in, not everyone on the earth has the intentions to stab you in the back. Learn from your mistakes, by pushing people away you’re not just damaging yourself! People do care about you, just because some plonkers in the past hurt you doesn’t mean that the next person will!
A lot has happened in these two years and a half. Only six short months and we will be sixteen and nearly leaving school. It’s scary, but we can do it. We’ve been through more than some people can imagine! We are stronger and we will only get stronger. So, let’s live our life before we blink and it’s over.
