This letter is to any teenager who is thinking about having sex.
If that’s you, this message is important and I hope you read it before you do.
There’s a lot going on around you, isn’t there?
You are in the pressure cooker of life and you may feel like you will drop into the abyss of isolation, rejection, or abandonment, if you don’t comply with so many expectations that are bombarding you.
I get it.
No, I really do.
I might be old, but I’ve worked with kids your age for generations, and I know what you’re thinking, what you’re feeling, what you’re trying to do to fit in, belong, feel loved and respected by those who mean the most to you right now in your life. I’ve also been you. Years ago, that is. But it’s all still the same.
Deep inside you, there is a desperate need to feel loved, accepted, and worthy of attention from those you want love, acceptance, and attention most in your life.
But before you do allthethings to get that, I want you to know something really important.
Having sex will not get you those things. It won’t.
There is a big chance you will end up regretting it.
Because the belief that having sex will get you love, acceptance, and attention-
Well, that is a falsehood.

*Please help support this important message over on Her View From Home, if you feel the same and know other teenagers who might be thinking of having sex. It’s packed full of truth and wisdom I wish I had known when I was a teen. I’d love to get this message out there for teenagers to understand. The current teen culture strays from these values in alarming ways. We must try to change this sexual epidemic. I hope and pray this message reaches teenagers everywhere.
