Dear Tim (Aged 14)

To my 14yr old self,

Enjoy life to the fullest.

I know it’s hard to accept now but Mum does love you, it just doesn’t feel like she knows how to express it at the moment.

Always do what you think is right (but that doesn’t mean you should slacked off on your homework).

Everything turns out for the best.

Eventually you’ll fall in love,  get married and settle down. By the time your my age you’ll have done the first two and be working on the third.

Do your A-Levels (Mathematics, Physics, German & English)  and finish your CEH, that “cool BTECH” you want to do, is useless, good fun but useless.

I wont say too much because that would remove your free will, but I will tell you this: Never give up! and Never Let go!

All the best,

Your future self.
