A post from our Community Correspondent The Intuitive Gardener
If I was offered a magic pill and go back to being sixteen, there’s no way I’d take it.
Back then, I hated everything about myself. I remember feeling very confused and looking for answers in all the wrong places.
In a way, my inner self hasn’t changed much since then. I’m still trying to understand. In a way it’s worse now, because you lose the hope and time and energy that you have when you’re young.
If my sixteen year-old self could see me now, I think she’d say “What? are you still here?”
