You're going to be 16, 17, or 18 for only 365 days. And you can die at 19 or 20 or even at 16. When your mum ask you, if you want to sleep in a bed, say yes. One day she will be in a hospital and there won't be enough room to make up for right now. Stop cancelling plans; go out and use your legs while they work. You are guaranteed nothing. Stop denying affection. You'll never be able to love someone as a teenager at 35. Someone, many someone's are going to tell you that they love you. Don't keep quiet because you're told it's too soon. If you love them, say so, be brutally, beautifully honest. Go out and change the world. Fight for peace equality and change. When you are 70 and you can only watch the news all day, you don't want to see the same issues still going on when you have the every chance to fight it. Stop romanticizing "I don't need anybody" and "I don't have feelings" attitude. It's easier to make friends in High school than in nursing homes. Embrace feelings and intimacy. Don't apologize for everything and don't let anyone make you feel guilty even if its one sided. Your only teenage for less than a decade and then you're 20. Life never slows down bones become fragile and break. People die and hearts become weak with every atom in your body, live right now. Feel blessed to see another beautiful sunrise.
