I know you'll be here. And yes, I was there, even though you thought no one could find you there. Don't hide from life, don't run away, and it will give something to you. You worry about your age, but it is nothing compared to the world. Billions and billions of years old - but it is still getting damaged by people. Who cares if others want to damage you? Please don't damage yourself!
I also know you would rather listen to famous, reliable people, rather than my advice. I picked out some for you, hope you like it.
Hope you would give your life another chance.
“Enjoy life. There's plenty of time to be dead.”
“Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.”
“Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars.”
Henry Van Dyke
“We all carry around so much pain in our hearts. Love and pain and beauty. They all seem to go together like one little tidy confusing package. It's a messy business, life. It's hard to figure - full of surprises. Some good. Some bad.”
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”
“Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.”
“The fear of life is the favorite disease of the 20th century.”
William Lyon Phelps

"He is able who thinks he is able."
“Competence, like truth, beauty, and contact lenses, is in the eye of the beholder.”
Laurence J. Peter
And this are snippets of lyrics from some of my favourite songs.
"Youth is like diamonds in the sun,
And diamonds are forever,
So many adventures couldn't happened today,
So many songs that we forgot to play,
So many dreams swimming out in the blue,
Let them come true"
"Find your mirror go and look inside
And see the talent you always hide
Don't go kidd yourself well not today
Satisfaction's not to far away"
"But if we hide ourselves away
Afraid to grow and learn
We might wake up in the flames
Of the ignorance that burns
And we’ll never be much more
Than only casualties of war
In a struggle we can’t win
If we have no faith to begin
We’ve got to tip the lid
And let some sunlight in
Cause the world is not a box"
You can't take your life away. You'll be wasting a brain, a heart and a soul. None of these are yours.
