Why are you worried about what people say about you?
They don't know the real you. Stay Free, Stay Young, Do You, and Stay True to Yourself! Don’t change just to fit society's norms, or be like Jasmine next door. Stand out, BE A LEADER! If they tease you for wearing braces, having pigtails, and because you have brown skin don't worry, it won't last long. Soon they will love your beautiful smile, bouncy curly hair, and golden skin tones.
Spread Love often and ask yourself when in compromising situations will this matter ten years from now. When you think all is perfect, life will uncomfortably hit you and you will have to face your fears. Don't hold back take the leap of faith in your life journey. Don't stop pursuing your dreams because Tyrone said he loves you and needs you. If he loves you, he won’t hold you back. He will let you go be a success and still be there when you get back, better yet, if it's true love he will say, "I'm coming with you lets conquer the world together!"
Friends come and go but there will be one or two that remain by your side because they understand you and want to be in your life, good, bad, or indifferent. As you get older you will connect with people you never thought you would connect with but it's ok, be open to new things and people. The minute you feel something is not right (that's your intuition nudging you) walk away and don't look back.
Don't just live day to day, look for the beauty in each day! Travel often and see the world!! Remember life is short and can end in an instant. Always embrace those you care about. Don't get sad or mad when people don't do for you as you do for them.
Oh Yeah, scale back on the burgers and fries and make sure you eat your fruits and vegetables and take your vitamins trust me, you will thank yourself later. Also it's ok to talk to the nice guys.
Love your future self,
