“Back to the Future” is my favorite sci-fi movie series, with the exception of Pt. 3 (smh). If I could be like Marty McFly, I would hop in my DeLorean and travel back in time to high school. I would tell ‘teenage Jessica’ three words: “It gets better”. “It”, back then, encompassed my self-esteem, confidence, and my entire life. It all became better. Circumstances are far from perfect and easy today. The difference, though, is my view. I reflect on what I have overcome already. I can see the cracks and spills of life through the lens of hope. It gets better.
