Today on Twitter, a few of the people I’m following, including ChibiJeebs, were sending words of wisdom to their 16-year-old selves.  The advice ranged from funny, to sweet, to heart-breaking.  I wanted to get in on the action, because while I wouldn’t change much about my life, there are some things I wanted to reinforce with myself.

Here’s what I tweeted:

  • You aren’t fat! You aren’t fat! You aren’t fat! You’re curvy. Thick, maybe. But not fat.
  • You don’t always have to try to be so perfect. Mistakes are how you’ll learn.
  • After your heart breaks into a million pieces when you are 24, don’t eat to comfort/protect yourself.
  • Go to your Senior Prom, even if your frenemy is going with the guy you’ve been crushing on for 2 years. Bitch!
  • Get more active: ride your bike more, take long walks. You don’t need to be on a sports team to become an athlete.
  • When you get to college, join a sorority so you can continue that sense of sisterhood you loved in high school.
  • Keep everything in perspective an A- in English is not the end of the world. Neither is that C+ in Geometry.
  • By the way, you will NEVER use algebra, geometry, or algebra II in your life after high school.
  • Trust yourself in the future as much as you do right now. Your intuition won’t lead your astray.
  • When your own instincts fail, trust your mother; she really does know best!!
  • You’re going to have an amazing life, so relax. Everything is going to turn out alright, even with the hard times.

What would you Tweet to yourself at 16?
