Dear Me Campaign

12:00:00 PM

If you haven't been on YouTube lately, then you may not have heard of a new campaign they have decided to do, as International Women's Day is March the 8th, called Dear Me. Dear Me poses the question "If you could go back in time, what would you share with your teenaged self?" It's aim? To inspire and empower girls everywhere to be confidence and pursue their dreams. The "letter" is meant to take form in a video and be shared across social networks. Grace Helbeig, Hannah Hart and Michelle Phan are just a few YouTubers who have already been participating in this campaign.

I personally felt that writing a letter to your younger self might say different things depending on where you've gotten so far in your life. I think right now, my top five things I would tell my teenage self would be;

1. It's okay not to have a lot of friends. Your best friend right now, isn't even your best friend today, believe it or not. But don't worry, you will meet your real friends soon. And they won't leave.

2.You don't have to compete with friends for grades. You just do you. 

3. You will never be "too old" for a dance party in the parking lot at school. No matter what that other girl thinks. She clearly doesn't know how to have fun. 

4.Nobody has their life figured out, and if they say they do..they're lying. So it's okay not to know what you want to do for the rest of forever. 

5. Stop and relax. Just take each moment in. Whether it's something crazy, or something small. Just cherish it really.

I know I know, it's meant to be a video...but I just woke up from a nap...and I just didn't feel like trying to figure out how to do a video. So if you could just deal with it that would be great. I do also think there should be a "dear future me" part to this whole thing. And Maybe I will write one up sometime! 

What about you? What would you say to your much younger, teenage self, or even if you are a teenager, what would you say to your younger self in general?

  1. I love this post, and I think this campaign is a really good idea. I also love what you said to your younger self, as I would say some of those things to my younger self too xx

  2. I've not heard about this until now because I've been a bit away from youtube lately but wow it's a great idea. I love this so much and I completely agree with what you said, couldn't be more true. I'd tell all that to myself and maybe add something more just like: don't stress too much about what others think about you. You do you, you are the one that has to be happy for youself not to please others (always respecting other people). And many things more probably that I can't think about right now :)
