In a special piece for (the excellent) Teen Vogue, Solange penned a letter addressed to her own teen self, imparting words of comfort and wisdom.

“There will be pain, there will be doubt there will be beauty, there will be the unknown. There will be so many moments of joy and delight that the whole universe will feel painted in hues of amber and wonder,” Solange wrote.

“There will be times you are so sad you can’t lift your head. And there will be times you are so happy that the sensation of life knocks you down. But most importantly, there will be you. a whole, whole lot of it. And you will feel good about who she is and who she is still becoming.”

Elsewhere in the letter, Solange wrote about her love for her mother, handling criticism and the “various phases of who you are”, including the brilliantly titled “the Rasta-vegan-thrifter-who-is-determined-to-marry-Brandon-Boyd phase.”
