If I knew then what I know now (3)

I would have told you...

That rebelling is a lonely path to take.
That kohl for the eyes and conditioner for the hair is the secret to happiness.
That being happy and alone is infinitely better than being lonely in a crowd.
That dark is dusky and dusky is beautiful.
That failure isn't the end of the world, only a stumbling block to perseverance and success.
That being unhappy isn't going to be an eternal state of being.
That the memories you're making are worth their weight in gold.
That you'll still wonder what you're meant to do, ten years on.
That getting older does not mean getting boring.
That standing up for what you believe in is worth it, in the end.
That nothing is worth fighting with your folks for.
That the mistakes you're making are lessons in life.
That the anger and hatred will soon disappear into oblivion.
That old people who listen to rock music are not uncool.
That staying broke is a perpetual reality in your life.
That you aren't the worst child your parents could have ever had.
That you still haven't met the people who will be your friends for life.
That the people causing you grief aren't really your friends.
That you are not really strange, just quirky.
That your quirks make you unique.
And that you are special. As much as you would like to believe otherwise.

Loved it! Seems so profound. I wonder when and whether I will be able to write such a thing to the now me. I sure hope I can. One thing that really struck me is though each one is so very special, everyone is the same... having insecurities and being scared. Its good to know we do get out of that at some point of time in life! Thanks :)
