I have been seeing this video a lot and I thought it was a cool idea. #DearMe is about giving your younger self advice, what do you wish you had known when you were a child or a teenager? I believe it is a component of International Women's Day. Keep reading if you are interested and share your #DearMe in the comments because I would love to hear what advice you all would give. I'll read them all. Quick note: I'll insert random #DearMe videos from well-known YouTubers that inspired me to do this post. Now, for an embarrassing photo . . . 

I am fairly certain I am supposed to give advice to my "teenage" self, but I think it would be more beneficial for me to be given advice before my teenage years, preemptive if you will. The advice I would give is don't worry so much, enjoy school, it's not the end of the world if you don't enjoy it. I feel like in sixth form I finally got it, I realised that school didn't matter and it didn't really matter that I didn't enjoy it massively, I got good grades and I had good friends and those were the most important things. But, in the first few years of secondary school I just found school boring and tedious, I was stressed out a lot because I just didn't like it at all and that showed in my health. It wasn't worth it.

Also, there is no such thing as the perfect body, so forget about the guilt when you eat those delicious raspberry white chocolate cookies from the cafeteria, they are worth the calories. You'll miss them. Just be yourself, don't worry about fitting in because then you know the people around you like you because you're you and not because you are pretending to be someone you're not. Surround yourself with funny people, because they will make your shittiest moments so much better. Try to be a bit more studious at university, future me would have appreciated that.

Thank you for reading, if you have anything you would share with your past self (whatever age) please tell me in the comments. As always, don't forget to follow my blog, you can sign up via email or bloglovin' I would really appreciate it. I spend a lot of time on this website purely because I love writing about anything and everything so the support would be very gratifying. All my social media links are on the right, I am all over Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr (I am a self professed social media whore, I post religiously). Take care.

Love ♥
