Dear younger self,
Hey! How are you? You’re a lot better than you will be now, let me tell you that.
I think I’m talking to around the 11-12 radius, I know it’s not that long ago but you were annoying back then. You still are now tonne honest.
Firstly, stop exaggerating everything! If you have to get up at five in the morning to swim, you don’t have to tell every single person on earth! You’ll get over it!
Next, not every single person you like will be your crush forever! It will eventually go away, you are going to an all girls school for secondary and you are straight so I’m not expecting you to have a crush.
Do your homework! Don’t leave it till the last minute or even worse, don’t do it at all. You will get in deep trouble and you’re constantly stressed over it.
Make an effort at swimming and hurling! You can do it, you’re just not believing in yourself. Not everyone thinks you’re a crap player and you will get better.
You will make friends in secondary, and you will still be friends with your old friends. It’s not the end of the world.
And lastly, you’ll survive! I’m still alive now, so you’ll at least get up to here.
