All tagged 16 years old

On Twitter recently, people were posting tweets to their 16yr old selves -- nuggets of advice that could have helped, gems that would have made it easier. Some of this tied in to the "It Gets Better" campaign because, really, it does. And if it doesn't get better, it at least gets different and sometimes that's just as good. It started me thinking. What would have helped me at 16? What would I have taken in and embraced? What could have better shaped my teen experience or helped me grow better as a person?
