what would your fourteen year old self say if you travelled in time and told them what you were doing with your life now

I’d like to think they’d say “what the fuck is tumblr? what’s social media? it’s 1995. WAIT. THE INTERNET GETS BIGGER AND I GET PAID TO…..BE ON IT? FOR WORK?!“

But, realistically, I think they’d say something like “YOU MEAN WE SURVIVE THIS DEPRESSION? We’re still around? And, like…happy? And healthy?” 

And then I’d hug 14-year-old-me and tell them that things are still hard some days (a lot of days), but in the future we have a support network and we get the help we needed. And that we’re still weird, and that that’s rad.
