7. When I was a pre-teen she told me: “As you get older you’re going to think everyone around you is changing. It’s not them that are changing, it’s how you see the world that is changing.”
I thought that was super weird advice, but as I got older and started to see adults for who they really were it really made sense. They weren’t changing, I’d just never noticed that side of them before. I genuinely think it’s why I wasn’t a bratty teen, because I knew my parents were still the same parents, I was just seeing everything differently.
8. When I fist logged into facebook, when I was 14, my mom told me that: “The internet is like a postcard, of course you can write every little secret onto it, but you have to expect that everyone can read it.”
I think many teens should know that.
