If I’d have known…

To Younger Me, You’re 16 and you need to know it’s not gonna go how you plan.  You won’t be with this man forever; he’ll surprise and disappoint you and resurface like those sparkly hot pants you forgot you had.  When you leave him you’ll be lost.  But you’ll work out it’s how you find…
