Dear Team Me

If you are here, you are probably visiting because you read my Dear Teen Me letter.

If not, you should go read it ---->

This was a very hard letter for me to write, but I knew it was the one that was supposed to be written. I don't really have a great blog post to go with this since I just want you to go read the letter, so instead I'm just providing some helpful info.

To Write Love on her Arms -  This was not around when I was a teen. Back then it was taboo to even talk about being depressed. It is nice to see a support group for other people who are depressed and to know that you are not alone.

As far as info for girls in abusive relationships...well...there is no magical website I can give you. I could give you the warning signs, but if someone is in the situation, will they listen?

I could prepare myself all I wanted, but what I needed was the confidence and the strength to know that the relationship I was in was not a healthy one. Years later I now realize how toxic that relationship was and I hope that anyone who reads my Dear Teen Me, whether a teen girl or  boy or even an adult will learn something from it and maybe even get some help themselves.

Now I leave you with this YouTube video that sheds a little lights on things.


  1. That must have been so hard to write. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. It took me forever to get the words down, but I am so thankful to have so many wonderful friends in the writing community that encouraged me.


You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
