DEAR YOUNG PEOPLE OF LISTAPP

  1. We know what you're going through.
    We were young too. We felt those feelings just as hard as you're feeling them now. We get it.
  2. We have no idea what you're going through.
    Technology and the Internet were VERY different when we were your age. "Social media" was relegated to AOL instant messenger and...really, that was it. Portable phones were inside of giant bags in our parents' cars. You are growing up in an entirely different world.
  3. It's going to be fine.
    Things that seem big now won't matter at all in a couple of years. The person who broke your heart today will barely be a memory tomorrow. It's okay.
  4. It's not going to be fine.
    The environment is going to shit, our economy is going to shit and our government is going to shit. This is our fault. Sorry.
  5. It's never been a better time to be a woman !
    Feminism is no longer a dirty word! We're well on our way to wage equality! Prominent women are speaking out and creating positive change. We are finally creating a world worthy of our daughters.
  6. Being a woman is fucking horrible and I wish it on no one.
    It's hard. It's so hard. As you get older, it just gets harder. I'm sorry.
  7. You will find love.
    And it will be wonderful.
  8. You will have your heart broken.
    And it will be the worst thing that has ever happened to you.
  9. You will make this world a better place for the next generation.
    I believe in you.
  10. You will fail.
    But you should never stop trying.
