Dear 16 year old Jayne,
You think you know everything, you don't. You have so much to learn. Listen to everyone when they tell you he isn't right for you. He's old enough to be your dad. A relationship isn't a relationship if you have to hide it from everyone, especially those you love. Your dad is only angry with you for seeing him because he loves you, not because he's trying to ruin your life. This 'boyfriend' is holding you back, dump him now, you're skipping class and he'll ruin your life at uni.
So you proved everyone wrong and did OK on your A Levels, give it a rest, you know you could have done better and you know you settled for a second rate uni because the old man couldn't get into any of the better ones.
But enough about that, you saw sense eventually. Well, a certain someone else helped you, but thats beside the point.
Spend time with your mam. Don't shut her out or take her for granted. You don't realise it right now, but you only have another 3 and a half years left with her, so enjoy it. Something positive will come out of her death, because everything happens for a reason, when she goes I think it will help you to know that there are 2 reasons.
1. You'll raise a shed load of money for the Leukaemia and Lyphoma Research Fund.
2. It'll be the push you need to leave England and move to Qatar. Lets face it, you'd have never left when she was ill and really it was the best thing you ever do.
Don't worry about finding the right person, getting married and having kids. It will happen.
If only you'd read this letter.
Lots of love,
Jayne (25) x
