“You are not responsible for anyone except yourself. Ever.”

I did this today. I highly recommend you getting involved with this fascinating project…

My 12 year old self

Dear 12-year-old Kate,

You are not fat. Even if you were, that would be okay. I hate that you’re looking at your body seeing imperfections that just don’t exist.

I hate that you’re going to carry that burden of self-loathing for a long, long time.

You’ll only start to tackle that in your 40s but when the opportunity arrives, grab it and don’t look back.

Life’s too short to spend too long wondering, and you’re going to spend a lot of time fighting to save your marriage long after it’s over. And the core of this will be your lack of self-worth.

But you’ll be ok. The ending will ignite in you the beginnings of finding yourself again, and that will be exciting.

Go for it! I hate that you’ve lived through a childhood full of loneliness, where you felt you needed to be the joy for a whole household.
