Dear Younger Me,

Don't lose your voice. Don't let others speak for you. 

Figure out what you want in life and hold on to it. 

Set expectations & boundaries in your friendships and relationships.

You can be honest & still be kind. 

Work first, play later. There will always be time to play. 

You can't please everyone. 

You can say no. 

You don't have to be friends with people you don't like. 

If you make a mistake, forgive yourself

Spend money on trips & experiences instead of materialistic things. 

Don't compare yourself to others. 

Surround yourself with like-minded individuals.

Take your time. Don't rush.

Xoxo, M
