Dear Teenage Me, Part 5

You and your friends, being generous with laughter.

You and your friends, being generous with laughter.

Dear Teenage Me,

1 If you ever find yourself using the phrase “I wish,” make sure it is not followed by “you,” “it,” or “they.” Say “I will” instead.

2 Those times when you don’t get your way, which, let’s be honest, is most of the time, throttle the f**k back and calm the f**k down. Better to be happy than right. 

3 Don’t be afraid of flirting. It’s actually easy, once you get over your silly-assed self. Just don’t take yourself too seriously. And send out energy that is kind and open and fun and confident.

*In order to be approached, you have to be approachable.*

You, flirting.

(Well, at least not taking yourself too seriously.)

4 Be generous when it comes to kindness, forgiveness and laughter. Because, in this life, you can only keep what you give away.

5 Don’t ever stay in a relationship because you’re scared of what could happen if you leave. Leave because you’re scared of what will happen if you stay.

6 When you’re faced with any uncomfortable or unwanted interpersonal situation, you have 2 options: try and change the other person, or change how their behavior affects you. Hint: The second one is better. For everyone involved.

7 Just to give you something to look forward to: one day you will have monkeys climbing all over you. It will be the best thing that ever happens to you.

(No, not really, but it is pretty cool.)

8 Please don’t be afraid of therapy. Asking for help is a sign of strength.

9 What someone else thinks is none of your business. No, not even what they think about you.

10 When you know someone has the reputation of, “You don’t want to get on their bad side!” Go, run, get out now. The longer you’re in, the worse it will be later.

11 The way someone talks about his ex-girlfriends tells you everything you need to know. Not about them, but about him. How he treats them is how he will treat YOU.

12 When a guy gets dumped he is likely to say, “What’s wrong with her?” When a girl gets rejected she is likely to worry, “What’s wrong with me?” Don’t be that girl.

Ain’t nothin’ wrong with you, sweetheart.

More to come. Until then, stay Veracious, Teenage Me. Stay Veracious.
