30 days of photos - Day 6

6. A picture of a person you’d love to trade places with for a day
OK this one was ridiculously hard...

Ultimately - I am happy being ME so I decided that I would interpret this one as including time-travel and such and then I had to decide at which age I'd like to swap places with myself...

I finally decided that I would switch places with me at the age of 16.

Age 16 me (as pictured below) got that outfit for her first Xmas party with a date.

What would I do as 16-year-old me?  I would look in the mirror and tell her she is beautiful, she is smart, she is a good person and that she doesn't have to settle.  She doesn't have to do things she's uncomfortable with just because her boyfriend wants to.

And I'd tell her to dump his ass, rather than accept his apology after he decided it would be "funny" to handcuff her to a couch when she fell asleep and attempt to get her to go farther with him than she wanted to.

That way she'd never have been hit by him and maybe would've avoided jumping from that abusive relationship into another one and later other ones.

  1. Wow. He handcuffed you to the couch?

    There are a lot of things I'd tell my 16 year old self, too. Mostly, not to sweat the small stuff. What a pretty picture!

  2. Yes he did... it was pretty scary but he told me he was only kidding around and he was sorry etc...

    Of course, in hindsight at 16 I shouldn't have been dating a 21-year-old anyway.

  3. Thank you so much for the award. It means a lot. I am so humbled by and grateful to the wonderful people I have met through my blog, and you are one of them.

    By the way, LOVED your 16 year old photo. Look at those long legs. Pretty girl, you.

    In terms of the 21 year old, sounds like he was a jerk. And I bet he still is. You don't JOKE by handcuffing someone to a couch and then putting moves on her. People!!

  4. @Digger - yeah, he was not a good guy...

  5. It's too bad we can't go back and have a chat with our younger selves.
