Dear 15-year-old me,
It’s me. That is to say, it’s you, but from the FUTURE!
I’m writing to give you some perspective on the years ahead
of you, i.e. the years behind me. It’s 2020 now, and so much is different today
than it is for you in 1991.
In the coming years, a lot is going to happen. Some of it is
so insane, you probably won’t believe me. Then again, I’m assuming you’re going
to believe that this is a letter from the future, so I should probably maintain
this presumption of your gullibility for consistency’s sake. You were (are)
pretty naïve, as I recall.

He valued proving his point more than he valued her. He realizes post-marriage that it was not fair to think, “I wouldn’t be offended by this, so the fact that she’s offended is petty and invalid, and I shall convince her of this.” Continue reading
No one knowingly starts dating an abusive person. You start dating them because they’re attractive. They make you feel special. The abuse comes later when you’re invested.
You’re not a moron, and you’re not weak. You’re not gullible. You had a good reason for making the decisions you made early on.
You listened to his lies, knowing that your friends thought you were crazy for believing him, but you thought you knew better. Continue reading
This might be categorized as another Trump rant, so if you’re not into that sort of thing, read something else. Nothing to see here.
I am going to take exception with some illogical BS.
The long and short of it is this…A lot of Christian people voted for the Donald, and I’m going to call it like I see it: voting for Trump was perhaps the most un-Christian thing you could have done.
