1.That 18 year old boy with the pretty smile, and prettier words isn't worth it. Isn't worth your time, your tears or your love. You'll find better.
2.Don't make an enemy of that girl just because she fell for the boy with the pretty smile too. Be friends with her, that will be far more intimidating to him. And maybe you have more in common than just liking his pretty smile.
3.Skipping that meal won't make you feel prettier. It will just make you feel like you've failed your mother.
4.Once you taste his lips for the first time, it will never leave your mouth. Remember it, you'll miss it, but you'll also remember why you don't want it anymore.
5.The razor will only sting for a little while, not long enough to make their words go away.
6.Your best friend isn't invincible, and neither are you. Live it up for as long as you can, because tomorrow she'll be gone.
7.Those lyrics may sound perfect, but they're not about you. Don't change your life to fit a song.
8.You are as brave, as strong, as smart, and as badass as you choose to be.
9.Keep admiring the strong female characters, but also appreciate the weak ones, they're people too.
10.Don't try to fall in love too early. That's how you get hurt.
11.You are not your sister. You don't have to be your sister.
12.Save every penny. Don't buy that poster because it has your favorite movie, it will change in a year. Instead, buy that dress that makes you feel like a princess. That's what's really worth it.
13.The boy who took your book, and pulled your hair isn't worth your anger. He will amount to nothing more than the family business.
14.High school is hard, but don't romanticize college, it's not much better.
15.Someday it will be ok. Not at 16, not at 19, not even at 21. But someday.
