Hello there,

You are stronger than you think. Whatever life throws at you always remember that you can and will get through it. Everything passes whether that’s sickness, exams or stress, time heals everything.

Please surround yourself with the right people. Your friends should build you up not put you down. A true friend will be there for you no matter what. It’s not about having loads of friends. It is all about having a few real ones.

Do the things that make you happy. Do the things that make you excited and that you are truly passionate about. Sing, play your guitar, write your songs because life’s too short not to.

This is a very important one, the leaving cert is not everything. You will get through it. There are so many ways of getting to where you want to be, so it is not worth stressing yourself out and putting all that pressure on yourself. Try your very best that is all you can do.

Accepting who you are is one of the most important things. It doesn’t happen overnight. It is something you have to work on. You are perfectly imperfect, embrace who you are and stay true to yourself.

Kindness is everything. Spread kindness wherever you go because what comes around goes around, you don’t know what other people are going through show everyone kindness always. Some of the toughest things you go through will turn out to be the best things that happened to you. They make you strong. They help you to realize that you can handle anything.

It’ll all work out, be patient,

S x
