Dear TJ

Dear 18 year old me,

You’re dope. Don’t question it. Your choices are strong. You are who you are and nobody can change that. Not even your own mother. I know there will be girls. They will come and go. The pain will never change. 
Be honest with everything. No matter what. Hiding things never helps. In fact, it makes things worse. 
Cheating is not good. It never is. Don’t do it. Try your hardest to be honest. If you don’t like someone. Tell them. It’s not fair to the other person if you lie. 

Your can be right in arguments. Don’t think because someone is older that they’re always right. You will grow up faster. 
Peer pressure is stupid. Don’t give in. And be just because you know who you are doesn’t mean you have to act like you don’t. I don’t know is common and it’s okay. But if you feel super happy when doing something, do it more. 

Save money now. Trust me. Shit will get real. 

Don’t forget to keep falling in love and be open to heartbreak. Feel everything and write as much as you can. You’ll look back and realize that who you become might forget how they became the man they are today. 

Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that were dope.
