Things I wish I knew as a teenager

1) You aren’t weird.  Well, that’s a lie.  You are weird.  But you’re the good kind of weird.

2) You actually have the best mom in the world.

3) Your dad tries his best.  His best is just different than everyone elses.

4) Don’t be so fearless.  You aren’t obligated to make all your own mistakes.  Some of them have already been made and you don’t have to do it too.

5) Don’t accept comfort as a substitute for passion. They aren’t the same thing…at all.

6) The first time he hits you, leave.  It isn’t ok just because you’re dating and you made him mad, not even by a longshot.

7)  You being kinky that doesn’t make you weird.  You just need to find your niche.  Embrace it.  It’s a huge part of who you are and influences you outside the bedroom for the better.

8 ) Don’t apologize for your kinks just because they aren’t mainstream.

9)  Never apologize for taking charge of your health, even if it means awkward, uncomfortable questions.

10) Pick the older men in your life very carefully.  Never let then make you feel like less just because you’re younger.

11)  You don’t owe anyone just because they make more than you or are older than you.

12)  Don’t settle for just passion, dedication, or comfort.  You need all three, in equal parts.

13)  Talking about expectations relating to sex is awkward, but it does get easier, and it’s so worth it.
