    This is to my 17 year old self...

    That guy you're so head over heels in love with, he's not the be all and end all, he's just one guy, your first love is just that, your first. There will be others. Stop wasting time and energy on him, stop skipping school to be with him, study and fulfil your potential. Then go to uni.

    I thought I couldn't live without this guy, so when I chose him over school and then uni, only for the whole relationship to fizzle out when I was 20, well, I have lived with major regrets my whole life, because of this guy and the decisions I made in order to be with him..

    Materialistic things don't matter, and never get you anywhere! I did really well for myself but still think things would have been so different if I didn't want the best of everything!

    Have a gap year after highschool and go on a working holiday through Europe. Don't wait until you're older and tied down to travel (still fun - just not the same in terms of opportunities for meeting new people).

    Default What would you tell 16 year old you

    That guy you're in love with who's already been messing with you for a year? It's not going to get any better. Walk away. You'll be better for it, otherwise you're in for 2 more years of the same and years of doubting yourself afterwards. (Mind you, even if I was able to say this to myself as a 16 year old, I wouldn't have had the emotional maturity to follow through with it).

    You're not fat, at all. Yes you are busty and curvy but you're a size 12! You're not fat! I know most of your peers are slim and fairly curve-less but you.are.not.fat!

    You are a much better dancer than you think you are. Your curves don't detract from how well you dance. In ten years you'll look back on your concert and eisteddfod videos and be shocked that you actually look amazing and go step for step with the girls who became professionals. Open your eyes and see it now - everyone else can.

    Don't waste any more time on those "friends" who are mean to you. They aren't your friends, they aren't nice, and you don't need their approval.

    Lighten up! Take more chances, have more fun, stop worrying about what everyone else thinks - it will all be okay. And for god's sake, kiss that boy on the bottom of the hall stairs when you get the chance! Even though he's not the love of your life - you'll meet him later and he's amazing - you'll re-live that moment over and over again, wishing you'd been a little bit braver

    Study hard for something and stick to it

    Tell your mum it's you or your step dad she's not with him in the future

    Take care of your brother as he takes care of you when you move out at 16

    Travel a little

    Your second bf when you're 19 is the guy you marry don't be so hard on him he's young and he eventually grows up

    Don't make an idiot of yourself, move on and don't let him see you're heart broken!
    Keep in touch with those friends.
    Don't move out of halls of residence.
