and I'm sobbing

Dear past me?

Keep part of yourself hidden.  Not everyone is going to understand you.  The way that you think.  The feelings and opinions that you have.  And it’s going to hurt like a bitch when those things are used against you by people you thought were your friends.  So hide those parts.  Don’t share everything as a way to protect yourself.

Hug your friends tightly.  Tell them that you love them every single day.  That girl in your science class who knits all the time?  Talk to her.  Tell her that you like her current piece.  At least just once, say something to her.  On May 21st, when your friend opens your snapchat but doesn’t reply, call him after you finish the 24 episode.  Maybe he’ll answer.  If he does, don’t ever let him hang up.  

Life’s going to throw you a lot of curveballs.  And each and every single one of them is going to suck.  It’s going to hurt.  A lot.  But there are some good bits mixed in there.  Chin up.  Hold yourself together.  Keep on dancing.  You’ll figure it out.
