Dear Younger Version of Me,
 Your Dad will beat you, your Mom wont stop him. The kids at school will hate you for no reason, and you'll wish you were never born and you'll fall for all the wrong guys. But don't give up, because you'll find yourself through all of this pain and it will be the best thing to ever happen to you.
-Love, your future self.
Dear Young Me,
 All those years of never having boys pay attention to you don't matter because there is an amazing handsome guy that is all yours. He chose you, and he thought he didn't have a chance with you.
-Me now
Dear Young Me,
 Yeah, you know a lot, but you don't know everything and that's okay.
-Older Me.
Dear Young Me,
 Don't push him to get that contracting job in Afghanistan. The life you and him were planning will be put on hold for eternity because of an IED. You'll forever miss the warmth of his body lying next to you in bed, his soft kisses on your neck, and the the way he held you in his arms.
-Guilty and lonely forever
Dear Young Me,
 It's okay to grieve over his death. People seeing you cry, doesn't make you weak, it makes you human. You never forget him, but it does get better. So does life. And you learn to forgive your mom. PS- your son will look just like him, and have his same sweet smile.
-You are a survivor
Dear Young Me,
 He said he won't tell anyone, but trust me, everyone will find out.
-Naive and Betrayed
Dear Young Me,
 Don't give up on new things just because you aren't great at them from the get go, one day, you'll be glad that you stuck with something.
-Sincerly, Not Good At Anything
Dear Young Me,
 Dump the experienced chef, and marry the virgin nerd. Happily ever after soon to follow.
-Older me
