1. Stop comparing yourself to those around you
Just because all of the girls around you are super thin with long glossy hair doesn’t mean you’re not beautiful too in your own way. And trust me, you’re not fat, in fact you’re far from it and soon you’re going to gain that confidence you’ve been lacking and you’ll see what I mean.
2. Not everyone has to like you, it’s okay
Not everyone will accept you, but that’s just how life is. The people who do accept you are the only ones who really matter. Stop wasting your time trying to get those who don’t like you to like you and spend more time appreciating those who do. It’ll make you a lot happier in the long run.
3. Don’t worry, you’re about to make some amazing friends
I know you feel lonely now, you just moved and you don’t feel like you’ll ever make any friends, but trust me. Soon you’re going to join the marching band and start highschool and you’ll meet some amazing friends. Most of them you’ll still be friends with all the way to your senior year. Cherish every moment with them, highschool goes by ridiculously fast.
4. You’re different, but that’s not a bad thing
Yes you’re different, but that’s okay, in fact it’s great! Soon you’ll learn to embrace how different you are and meet some friends who are just as silly as you. It will take a while before you can really show it, but just know that there’s nothing wrong with you.
5. Put yourself out there, it won’t be as bad as you think it will be
It’s scary to meet new people, but the more you go out there and do it, the easier it will get. You’ll learn to relax a little and make new friends with more ease. Yes there will be times where you fail and embarrass yourself a little, but don’t let that get you down. Just take it as a learning experience and move on.
You’re going to be so happy soon, with the best friends in the universe and an amazing boyfriend and a lot of things you thought you would never have. And there’s still so much more to come, so be excited. Things are about to get so much better for you.
