11 Things I Would Say To My 13-Year-Old Self
Raven Bowman

As a teen, you do not want to listen to your parents. Maybe, you'll listen to yourself?

1. It gets better

It is NOT the end of the world. That boy does not deserve your tears

2. You are beautiful 

Please don't worry about what others say, it is not important.

3. Love yourself

If you do that, love will come to you.

4. Play with your dog more

Before you know it, she won't be here.

5. Go wild

Because when you are old, you have to pay for the consequences.

6. Buy those 1D concert tickets 

Because you will regret not seeing them BEFORE they broke up.

7. Study more

Date less.

8. Set your own rules

Be sure to stick to them.

9. Be happy

Take a chance, do what makes you happy.

10. Love more

Love those who you think don't deserve to be loved.

11. Never give up

Because it's your life.

Middle school years were hard for all of us. If I could talk to my younger self, I would say all these things to her.
