Advice to Teenage Me

What advice would you give to your teenage self?

If I could tell my teenage self anything, I would tell me that I am not my sisters and to give myself a little grace.

I would tell myself not to listen to the things my mother said about me. I would tell me to be my own person.

Life is hard but, when you have people that root against you, it doesn’t make life any easier.

My mom raised me to have a mind of my own but tore me down every chance she got even when I was doing good. With that said, I would tell myself to keep the values taught to me but understand that I am my own person.

Sadly, it took many years of therapy to understand this.

Thanks for reading.

Blogging about life. Well, my life. As a black, bipolar, mom to a teenager with special needs, well, there is always a story to tell. From my aversion to having a man to my weird experiences while trying to avoid people, it's all there. Being me is.... different but it always makes for good blogs.
