I have no idea how the heck Auli’i sang that song in front of millions of people and she's only sixteen?? I'm sixteen and I gave up on making boxed mac and cheese today because I didn't want to put in the effort.

She’s so talented and pure. I’d betray all of you to protect her.

Embarrassing things I’ve done while on the edge of having a breakdown: tell my aunt I’m afraid of the dark and ask her for a night light

  • Molly: *snoring on 221B's sofa*
  • Sherlock: *smiles* You skipped lunch again whilst helping me, didn't you?
  • Molly: *still snoring*
  • Sherlock: *sighs; puts sandwich on coffee table* Thank you.
  • Molly: ...
  • Sherlock: *kisses Molly's forehead; whispers* I love you, Doctor Holmes *caresses Molly's bump* ...hurry up, son.
  • Molly: *mumbles* Give him a chance...I'm only sixteen weeks...
  • Sherlock: *blushes; grinning* ...shut up.

I feel like the older you get the younger you realize you are?? Like at twelve you think you know your shit and you’re practically an adult but then at 23 you realize you’re just a child and adult responsibilities are too much and you’d be content with juice, naps, and cartoons forever.


“I have a friend who doesn’t get football. He always asks me, ‘Why are countries so proud of their football team? Especially when they score; it sounds like a third world war with all the cheering and yelling.’ I admit, it can be dangerous mixing football and nationalism together. Yet somehow, they go together perfectly. That feeling of pride when your country scores. There’s nothing better, my friend. Absolutely nothing.”

I lost my virginity when I was 12 to a guy who was 17. It still eats at me sometimes, I feel used and disgusting. Not only that but I've been in and out of the mental/behavior hospital about four times in the last year and I'm only sixteen. Honestly, I can't find a way to love myself and I feel completely hopeless. I'm on many medications which make me feel like a zombie. I just want someone to care about me. I have no self esteem and no self value. Any advice Helaine?

You’re not worthless.

A lot of times, things don’t go the way that we planned or hoped for. I always wish that I had never had sex until marriage but I’ve been married and I can’t stand the guy so in a way, I’m glad that my first time was with someone who doesn’t mean a whole lot to me now than with my ex-husband because if I ran into both of them while walking down a street, I would stop to say “hello” and catch up on life with the first guy I slept with but I would continue to walk pass my ex-husband.

There’s not a single thing I regret doing in my past and I’ve done a lot of shitty + stupid things but there are two types of people in this world - people who learn from their mistakes the first time they make them so they don’t repeat them & people who continue to repeat their same mistakes until they learn from it, some never do though.

Always take bad experiences and turn them into a positive lesson to live by. Maybe you’ve learned to not be as vulnerable when it comes to sleeping with someone? I personally don’t like to have meaningless sex anymore because meaningless sex is meaningless. A lot of times, I was using others while being used and it left me feeling empty because I didn’t genuinely care about them and they didn’t care about me. I want to be important to someone when it comes to intimacy because I think my body should only be shared with those who share themselves with me and unless I’m proven that I am valuable to them, I cannot and will not sleep with them.

It took me years to love myself. I’ve been diagnosed with a couple of things (that I don’t feel comfortable sharing) and used to take medication for them. My medications turned more into an addiction and I allowed the drugs to consume me. I was living but I felt dead inside. One day, I said fuck it. I stopped taking my medications and I stopped getting drunk for almost a whole a year. Never in my teenage life at that point had my head been more clearer. I was able to see who my real friends were and I removed everyone from my life that had proceeded to disappoint me again and again. When I was fucked up all of the time, I didn’t care who was in my life because I was too incoherent to give a damn about anyone other than myself. Now I love my family with an entirely new love. The way I feel now about the ones I hold close to my heart is overwhelmingly different than how I felt when I was 18. This was also the time when I started to realize what kind of person my ex-husband also was and because I was bettering myself, I rid of him too because he didn’t benefit me in any positive way. I am in no way telling you to “get off your meds,” I don’t know what you’re medicated for. That’s something you should talk about with professionals or with your parents. I am an adult and had to make my own adult decision to stop losing my mind to drugs.

I decided to change my life because I was sober and desperately needed to be happy on my own for once. No drugs. No alcohol. No fake friends or half assed relationships. I surrounded myself with ONLY positive people who spoke positive words. I had a great support system and I definitely did not grow into the young lady I am today without the helping hands of others guiding me towards the light. But don’t get me wrong, some things about me remained the same. I still don’t believe in God, I’m still afraid of the dark, and I still am a hopeless romantic. I’m no longer jaded though, I no longer keep my blinds and shutters closed all day to keep the sunlight out, and I don’t feel any hatred in my body. I honestly feel like I was born again. I see the world with a whole new perspective and have more love now than as a child, that is because I chose to.

Be around people who make you want to be the best person you can be and always be someone you would want to be friends with. Remind yourself that shedding your past doesn’t happen over night but slow & steady, you will get where you need to be. If you wouldn’t want someone else to give up on you, you’ve got to prove to yourself that you’re worth the fight by not giving up on yourself.

Goodluck, I wish you a golden life.

"Don't tell Sam I'm drinking....." Jamie, only sixteen years old, hiccuped lightly.

John had been wondering where his booze stash had been vanishing to. He’d had his suspicions, but actually catching Jamie in the act had cemented it. Eyes narrowing, he considered his words.

“Don’t'cha think you should be more worried about the ass-whoopin’ coming from me?” He scratched his chin thoughtfully and then smiled. It wasn’t a pleasant smile.

“You’re too fuckin’ young to be putting that in your body, Jamie. It’s not worth it.”

What if I really am just a late bloomer? When I came out to my mom, she said that she never experienced sexual attraction until college. I'm only sixteen... How am I supposed to know?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again until my throat is dry and hoarse. There’s no such thing as being a late bloomer. People saying that you’re a late bloomer is a form of invalidation against any sexuality that isn’t straight. Elementary school children are allowed to know they’re straight, but anyone else who’s not is just “too young.” No. That’s not okay. If asexual is how you feel now then you are asexual. That said, sexuality can be fluid and change over time. But if it does change and you develop sexual attraction later it’s not because you’re a “late bloomer.” Sexuality is just fluid.
