Keep your head up

Dear Sofi,

Everyone is going through something, everyone struggles, everyone makes mistakes, it’s normal. There are and will be times where you feel like giving up,  but don’t. You are much more than that, much more than a bad grade on a test or a bad hair day. We will struggle and we may feel alone, but we are not. There will always be someone  there for you whether it is your mom or your friend . You shouldn’t be bottling it up, speak and let it out.  You may be going through something but it won’t last forever. Use that to grow. Learn from those experiences and mistakes. Don’t let anyone’s progress or accomplishments bring you down. You are your own person with your own strengths and beauties. Don’t let all the negativity get to you. stay positive even in the darkest times. Enjoy even the smallest things. Don’t let meaningless things make even the brightest of smiles dull. Be yourself and think for yourself.

Be yourself and stay true to yourself. High school is going to bring many challenges and it might be hard in the beginning but don’t change yourself for others. Ask for help and seek advice. Step out of your comfort zone and introduce yourself first. Try new things and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Find what is best for you and what might be better for you to stay away from you. But overall be responsible when making these decisions. Make sure you look out for yourself and make decisions that will benefit you. of course, it will take time to find all these things but you will.
