Alan Rickman's letter of advice to his 16-year-old self is excellent

Ah <3

SINCE THE SAD passing of Alan Rickman yesterday, so many people around the world have been sharing inspiration and memories of the iconic actor.

And now, a letter written by Rickman to his 16-year-old self has turned up on the Letters of Note Twitter page, and it’s brilliant:

“Make your own unique messes, and then work your own way out of them”

It featured in the book Dear Me, a collection of letters from celebrities – including Rickman, JK Rowling and Stephen King – which was released in 2009 when Alan Rickman was 62.

Great advice.
