Dear middle school Tracy,
This letter only has one point. To apologize.
I am sorry I didn’t treat you the way I should have.
I am sorry for not loving your body like I should. I am sorry for the mean things I thought about our acne, our stomach, our feet and our hair that would never lie quite right.
And I’m sorry for the mean things I think about being alone, unkissed and single. You are so young and don’t deserve that pressure from anybody, including me.
(here’s a hint, you like being single. Truly. I know you won’t believe this until much later. But I promise that it’s true. Don’t let other people think we need a boyfriend to be happy and fulfilled. it’s a lie that too many girls believe. You don’t need to be one)
I’m sorry that I put so much pressure on you to be perfect, to be happy. To be a different person.
Remember, you are beautiful even with messy hair and acne. Remember you are loved even with the horrible attitude.
Always remember that you are enough, always.
