Animation Growth/Independence

After reading her teenage diary, Lydia goes back in time to talk some sense into her younger self.

 

Lydia, who is in her thirties, discovers
 her teenage diary by chance one day. In that diary, Lydia finds her teenage
 self and her stories that remain intact from years ago, the pages documenting
 her worries about her relationships with her friends, her relationship with her
 boyfriend, and her insecurities about her body and appearance. The much older
 present Lydia wants to liberate the teenage Lydia that is trapped inside her.
 However, she finds herself becoming once again that teenage Lydia, worrying and
 brooding over the same problems. Older Lydia decides to accept her teenage
 self, immature and naïve but true to her own feelings, and to let her be -
 because she finds that the older, present day Lydia is living fine without any
 regrets. [Sunah KIM]
