I’ve saved this for the last part of this note. You’re a 13-14 year old narcissistic, self centred rebel – with your hair falling out in clumps every single day. This isn’t part of the plan – the plan is to groove to Jenny from the block and get married to Leo C; while continuing to be the big fish in your small pond. You take immense pride in the way you look on the outside and spend hours obsessing over how others do too. No one in Vogue is bald and high school kids DO NOT have such problems!
Give it 5 years – that’s all it’ll take from us. And then – it will be the most liberating experience of our lives. We’ll still be messed up yes (duh!), but oh man, we’ll fall in love with ourselves like you’ve never known before. We will be thankful for our blessings, experience unconditional love from our family, find warrior like friends and the privilege of equal opportunity to succeed in every which way. P.S. – You will find the boy, and no he won’t care! 🤭
It’ll probably continue to be the first thing someone notices about you, but it will never be the last thing people do. We’ve come a long way together, and you did good, kid. xoxo ❤️
