What I wish I knew at 15.

Morning guys!


The year I was 15 was crazy. I'd moved from an outback town to the big city. From parent to parent and at the end of that year... out on my own.

So much happened.

I was so naive, so lost, so lonely and desperate to be loved. I feel sorry for that poor girl.

Over at JustB today, I'm telling that girl what I wish someone had told me then. What I wish I knew.



Oh and kids?

Stay in school!

  3. That was an amazing post Stacey.  I wish I had told my 15 year old self a few of those things too.  Thank you for sharing it. x
    ps.  Still can't believe I wasn't confident enough to come and say hi at DPCON!

  5. Wow. Your 15 year old you sounds similar to me, except I didn't drop out of school and my parents didn't split up.
    The feelings about yourself, the pushing others away, it's spot on. I am still sitting high in my fortress and I have no idea how to let people in.

  6. Veggie, I left a comment over on JustB, but I just wanted to say 'bravo' here as well. I wouldn't know where to begin in a letter to my 15 year old self! xx

  7. Your comment at JustB really got me... I do think quite kindly of myself at that age, because it seems like it's a totally different person. someone who needed a lot of kindness! poor kid. I hope my kids never feel like that.
    Thank you. Seriously xx
