Dear Teenage Self,

Oh, how I wish you could see what I see now. I’m older, and life has made me wiser. Nothing is the way I thought it would be. It’s so much better.

When I look back, I see you as one person but I know there were two of you: one that the world saw and the private one that only you knew. I remember the nights and days filled with worry, sadness, and confusion. I remember being both of you. I remember the smile I would show to my friends and then I remember the tears no one knew that I cried behind my closed bedroom door.

Oh, how I wish I knew that everything would be okay someday. But, I probably wouldn’t have believed it at the time.

Oh, how I remember those teenage years as the most painful years of my life. Living under a microscope. Everything was magnified (放大). I know it’s hard to believe, but your teenage feelings, friendships, family, and appearance are way out of proportion (比例). You think that whatever happens will stay that way forever. Nothing is farther from the truth.

Steve Carrell said it best in Little Miss Sunshine after Paul Dano told him that he just wants to go to sleep and wake up when he’s 18. Steve Carrell answered, “What? High school — those are your prime suffering years. They don’t get better suffering than that.” “Do you know Marcel Proust? He had a painful life. He gets to the end of his life and he looks back and decides that all those years he suffered, those were the best years of his life because they made him who he was. All those years when he was happy, you know ... a total waste. He didn’t learn a thing. Sleep until you’re 18? Think of the suffering you’ll miss.”

It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. Your teenage years were the best suffering of your life. Those painful breakups, lonely nights, and tears cried are the times that make you stronger, smarter and sculpt (塑造) you to become the rock-solid adult that you will become.
