Dear Holly, stop worrying about how you look and sound and whether or not people like you. The people who matter will stick with you and the people who don't, won't. Stop stressing and being embarrassed. You'll be fine.

Okay honey, let's get things straight, you are beautiful. It might take you a few more years to get it through that thick skull of yours, but you'll get there, trust me.  Dear Holly, Yes, you're afraid of losing everyone because you're annoying. Maybe you can be a pain but no one's a saint. Stick to your guns, be kind, and hold onto those friends you have. For a final message: beauty isn't defined by weight, intelligence, by grades and friendship by popularity. You are you, and that's enough.  Dear Holly, you will always be loved.
