Things I would Tell My High School Self
Every time I think about my high school self I feel like slapping myself in the face, I asked around and not many people enjoy who they were in secondary school and I’m definitely one of them.
If your still in Secondary School / High School, here are some things I wish I could go back in time and tell myself!
- Be true to yourself
This is true of many things but I’m thinking more for trends, it’s fun to experiment with things like bright hair but when you get some school trends like tight short skirts,super crazy eyeliner or having your trousers round your ankles, if you want to try it go for it! but don’t do it to please other people if you don’t like something, don’t do it just to fit in, stick to your guns you will feel a lot better about yourself.
- Don’t be obsessed with being popular
I know it feels like the end of the world if one of the popular people don’t invite you to their party but if they don’t care about your feelings stop wearing them on your sleeve, meaning don’t get obsessed with getting that popular boys attention or girls because if they don’t give you the time of day there really not worth it.
- We’re all hormonal here
Teenagers are moody and their emotions change like the weather so putting them in a room together and locking the door for a long period of time is not the best idea but in the end that is what school is. Everyone is constantly changing trying to find themselves and people can get hurt along the way.
- True friends last forever
Though teenagers can be hormonal, they can be downright nasty too, and you really don’t need that in your life. I try to keep to the rule three strikes your out, everyone gets bad days and say things that don’t mean but if it becomes constant and focused mainly on you it’s time to rethink the friendship, someone who is constantly hurting you is not what you need in your life. True sportive friends are what makes school bearable so don’t waste time on the heaters.
- It will end
School feels like the rest of your life but it’s not it does end so if you really hate school you will get through it and maybe even miss it.
I hope these tips help you, I have been guilty of staying in the past and being annoyed at my high school self when there is nothing I can do about it ! tell me in the comments if you think about your secondary school self a lot and if these tips help. Thanks for reading Xxx
