Dear Young Me,
 Writing to yourself when you're older doesn't change anything. It's a huge waste of time and it kind of makes you look like an idiot. But it makes you feel better, so keep doing it.

Dear Young Me,
 Leave him. Don't let him take what he wants from you. You deserve better.

Dear 17-yr-old me,
 Suicide is not the answer, and it's a blessing that it never worked for you. You will learn so much in the next several years, and you will love life, friends and family more than you ever have before. Stay strong, you will make it.
-Signed, Katie
Dear Young Me,
 I know it seemed like you had everything figured out, with that man you thought loved you and a ring on your finger and a cute apartment, but it was all wrong for you. You will go on to finish college and find someone who isn't abusive or insecure. Keep your head up, life does get better.
-~slightly older, much happier you
Dear Young Me,
 Don't worry, you were right. He is still the love of your life. Things are not perfect, not even a little bit, and not much has changed at all, except you got fat. Sorry about that. But you are still together, he's still the one.
-Five Years Older Me
Dear Young Me,
 Everything happens for a reason. That doesn't mean there is a large plan tailor-made for you, micro-managing your whole life. Just open your eyes to the world around you. You will see it, and you will be happy.
-Atheist Optimist
Dear Young Me,
 Don't let all those girls who said "no" to dating you throughout your life bring you so far down. You find the one after avoiding all those others and you'll be happier than ever. Trust me, I am not letting her go and you can't wait to meet her.
-Your Soon To Be Engaged self
Dear Young Me,
 You don't have to cry yourself to sleep because of what they said about you. In a few years you will have experienced opportunities of a lifetime and be truly happy. :)
