High School Is About Discovering YOU

Your early teenage years
are for you to discover who you are,
and deciding exactly how
you’re going to change the world.

The years that come afterwards
are for you to start going after your dreams,
and recognizing the person
who’s going to support you,
as he pursues his own dreams, too.

Most problems happen
when you cling to someone too soon:

Your identity becomes “being his girlfriend,”
and your only dream becomes
“to stay with him.”

It’s a very difficult thing:

trying to rediscover yourself

when you never knew who you are.

It’s even harder to let go of a dream
that doesn’t work out,
simply because

it was the only one you had.
