Nicki over at Curly and Candid has been baring all about when she was 15. She asked for stories about when others were 15, I don't really remember a lot about that age, I think I've blocked them all. It was before I went through a rebellion and turned into what I could only describe as now as a "troubled child" but I remember a few things.
I remember being lonely as I stopped hanging around with one group of friends and didn't have another group to belong to.
I remember that I didn't need ID to buy cigarettes or alcohol and so was the one everyone always asked to buy it for them.
I remember thinking that my life was crap and that there was no point to it all.
I remember thinking I knew it all.
I remember being skinny.
I do remember.
I wish I could go back to the me of then and let me know that things turn out okay. That the friends I thought I needed I didn't, new ones would come. Ones that would text me when I was sad, ones that would invite me to their weddings, ones that would be special and wouldn't understand just how special they are.
I wish that I could go back and say, look life is sometimes a bit shit but if you didn't have these bad times how would you ever know the highs of the good?
I don't really wish I could change anything, if I did then I wouldn't be me and despite all my flaws I'm rather lovely. There is nobody else just like me.
I guess to sum it up Justin Bieber was born the year I turned 15. That says it all really doesn't it?
