DEAR 16 YEARS OLD ME,

Wow, I was afraid to write this to you because I'm at a stage where I feel like I'm making the same mistakes I did when I was 16, but I realized you need to read this...we need to read this.


First of all, I know you don't really know God for yourself now, but in a couple of months, you will and at the same time you'll suffer your first heartbreak. This may seem like the end of the world, but it's actually the beginning of a new life with Christ. You're gonna cry a lot and that's okay. GOD doesn't just make the blind see, He also HEALS BROKEN HEARTS, so go to Him.


I know that a lot of guys will try to get into your pants and I know that you're smart enough not to let them. But I want you to never forget the reason why you're doing it. It's not because you want to be different or you want to seem unattainable, it's because God demands you keep yourself before marriage. So, instead of judging those who give it up easily, you should show them love and BE THANKFUL to God for giving you the strength to resist that level of temptation.


You know that guy that makes fun of you a lot and doesn't understand why you believe in God so much? Well, I got news for you, He told me a couple of months ago that he only did that because He was too scared to live for God and YOU INSPIRED HIM.


With regards to relationships, there will always be boys around you, but it's your job with God's help to filter through to meet MEN. Men who understand what it means to love God with all their heart because my darling, IF HE DOES NOT LOVE GOD, HE CANNOT LOVE YOU.


I know you're still stuffing your bra...lool. Well, I'll be happy to tell you that we moved from an A-cup to a B-cup. I know it's not exactly our dream size but hey, you gotta remember that the size of your boobs don't define you and BEING A B-CUP IS PRETTY COOL. Trust me, you're beautiful on the inside and out.


I know you have a big mouth, but babe, you gotta STOP GOSSIPING & BEING JUDGMENTAL. I need you to dream though. DREAM BIG. Stop spending so much time being pretty and hating everyone. LOVE baby. LOVE FROM YOUR HAIR TO THE TIPS OF YOUR TOES. Don;t forget to SMILE MORE. You're beginning to age a little to fast and those frown lines are gradually becoming visible. So do us a favour and SHOW YOUR FREAKING TEETH!


By the way, YOU'RE BLONDE NOW!!!!


Lots of love,
19years, 10months old you.

  2. Awww! This is so sweet! I can relate to this in so many ways! The talk about men is so true, for me as well! Stuffing your bra? Girl, I stuffed my bra in with socks and toilet paper at that age! LOL.

    Yes, yes, yes! A man that does not love God cannot love you. If he does it's not God's love but vain love. I LOVE your smile. Smile more! :)

    I really really like this! Thanks for doing the tag! :)
