Looking back, what advice would you give to your 14-year-old self?
I would tell myself that the people who left you out of parties and events won’t even matter. The people who made you feel bad about yourself have more problems with themselves and whatever they told you or pointed out to make you feel bad had more to do with them than you. Never let someone make you feel bad about yourself and whatever you’re going through now will make you stronger and will make you a better person in the future. Only you have the choice to make or break your vibe.
