Dear Lou

Dear Lou,

Firstly I wanted to say that you are great! Don’t listen to that little voice in your head telling you otherwise. Keep being yourself and do things that make you 100% happy.

I know school is crap, those bullies are bitches but don’t let them get to you, it won’t be for much longer I promise. For whatever reason, they will stop and they won’t even talk to you again but don’t let them make you feel small. They are still pricks and they just have nothing better to do, they are jealous.

Always do what you want, that always seems to work out best. You don’t have to do what your friends are doing, I know its hard to hear but I want to be totally honest with you and tell you that your current friends won’t be lifelong friends. It will work out to be a great thing when your older and you wont even miss them.

You will find a boyfriend, don’t worry you won’t be single forever eating a diet full of cookie dough. He tells you he loves you every day and if you don’t change your mindset now you will never believe him.

You don’t know it yet but social media is about to get big, everyone will be on it and you will feel different about yourself. I know that you are already super self-conscious but you have to learn to love you. When social media becomes big you will see a lot of bodies that don’t look like tours, don’t take any notice of it! And even though everyone is talking about it, please don’t watch two girls one cup, whatever you think it could be, it’s not!

Read more, you will be grateful that you did because it will help you so much in the future. Always be you and if people don’t like it then, fuck’em. The boys you’re about to meet are twats so don’t do anything your not comfortable with, being a virgin is nothing to be ashamed of. You are a good, caring person and that doesn’t need to change. Get out of bad friendships and do more of what makes you happy. Love yourself because that is all that matters.

Never forget what I’m about to tell you.

You are perfect the way you are! Your spots will fade, you will grow a little taller but 5ft2 is all it’s going to be I’m afraid. That’s a good thing though because your boyfriend is 6ft2 and it’s great to feel small when you get cuddles. Boobs. Your boobs won’t be big, sadly you have small boobs but that’s ok you will be grateful for them one day. You don’t now, but you should try to love yourself and don’t give you such a hard time. Eat healthily and do some exercise, you will get where you want to be. Don’t even think about doing fad diets (they don’t work!) you will end up wasting so much money. Love the body you have, yes you may have scars but think of it as a story to tell. If you want to wear a bikini this summer then wear that bikini. You will look great in it!

Stay young for as long as you can, you have years of being an adult ahead of you. Being an adult is not fun, yes you can drive but it’s not all shopping and coffee shops. You have bills to pay and washing to do, cooking too and not just baking I’m talking actual dinners. Enjoy the freebies while you can that’s all I’m saying!


  • Don’t pluck your own eyebrows, always go to a salon (if not you will suffer huge embarrassment).
  • Don’t cut your own fringe because it just doesn’t work. Cutting hair is NOT easy.
  • Razors are used WET and NOT dry and use A LOT of soap.
  • Don’t try your first tampon at school please (save yourself the pain of sitting down for the first time whilst in class).
  • Nice guys your age don’t exist, don’t waste your time.
  • Always look in the mirror and love what you see.
  • Don’t mix your drinks, you can’t handle it!

If I knew all of this life would have been a breeze. Just be you and you cant go wrong, you are perfect and the sooner you realise it the better.
