1. High school is tough — no doubt about it.
2. Everyone tells you what to do and what to be, but really, can they just let you LIVE?
3. You're not a nerd, jock, outcast, or popular kid, and you'd appreciate not being labeled, thank you very much.
4. You don't care about trends or what's hype this week.
5. You don't have a clique or a squad. You have a few good friends, and that's all you need.
6. No, you aren't being a moody or emotional teen. You are allowed to feel things. You're human!
7. You aren't bored or disinterested. You actually have a life outside of school, and you're dealing with a lot.
8. People keep telling you that your future looks bright, but honestly, you're just trying to get through today.
9. You have wisdom and maturity far beyond your years of experience.
