Dear High School Me,
Everything will work out for the better. I know you’re probably hurting right now and extremely stressed, but it’s going to be okay!
The girl you become in 4 years is one you’d be proud of. She really seems to have a handle on this little thing called life. Sure, she still has her moments, but she’s turned into a great young woman.
She’s jumped over all of the fires that have been set in your path… hell sometimes she had to walk right through one. But, she survived.
She wakes up every day just like you do. She goes through the motions just like you do, but there’s something different… more put-together about her.
You’ll get there. It may take 4 years, but you’ll get there. Your struggles aren’t over, but they won’t break you. Stay strong, push through, and make these next few years count.
Being in college will be one of the best experiences of your life. You’ll make some amazing friends, you’ll meet some amazing advisors and professors. You’ll make the most of your time, and you’ll even run for a few positions in different clubs and organizations (I know, that’s crazy to think about, right?).
It will also be harder than anything you’ve gone through this far. You won’t be getting all A’s anymore, but you’ll learn more than you ever have before.
You’re going to really enjoy all that college has to offer, but I won’t give away where you decide to go just yet ;).
Your Future Self at 21.
