As you grow older you may feel the need to hide yourself from your peers. Your peers may make you feel as though you can't really be yourself around them because the things that you make enjoy may not seem "cool" or "hip". But I can promise you that if you stay true to yourself and continue to participate and love the things that truly make you happy, the friends who will accept you for those things, will be the truest and best friends you will ever have. Your peers who make you feel worthless and make fun of you for the things that you love are not good friends and honestly not people you need or should have in your life. I know at the time it may feel as though you need to have those friends for whatever reason, but it's not the truth. Not even close to the truth! Always be true to yourself and don't change yourself to fit anyone else's idea of who you should be. Love what you want to love. Enjoy what you want to enjoy. I'm not saying don't try new things, because trying new things is so important and can bless your life more than I can tell you, but just be true to yourself! Your Dad and I will love you no matter who you decide to be. No matter what! We love you!
Love- Your Mom
