Dear Mother, it's yourteen

Dear Mother,

This is a letter from your teen girl to you.

I remember when I was a little girl, you used to call me your pride, your love, your star and so many sweet names because you knew they would make me smile. However mother, as I suddenly slip into adolescence and puberty makes me do crazy things, those words have been lost.

My sudden cravings for more food, the acne that gives me concern, the enlargement of my breasts, the widening of my hips, the time I now take to make myself look good, the anger in my voice sometimes, the "sssss" from my male peers and even those older than me as I walk down the streets really scare me and make me nervous.

Even with all of these, what scares me the most and makes me even more nervous is you mom. You constantly complain about how much I eat and how fat I'm growing, you get annoyed with me over things that make my voice change while I talk. Mother, I know you are scared and insecure about the changes that are happening with me, but Mom at this point, I really need your protection, your advice, your love and your prayers.

Please don't push me away mother. I want to be able to run to you and talk to you about anything that bothers me; I don't want to keep them secrets from you. I want to have conversations with you on virtually everything that pertains to life.

Mom, I want you to remember that I'm always your pride, your star and your happiness. I will not let anything ruin the trust you have in me. All I ask Mom is that you strike up a conversation today. 

Your teenage daughter.

You will not regret it
Every teenager counts.

Thank you so much for reading.
