Dear younger self!
First of all, I just want you to know that you are a strong woman, who was going to make some bold moves that scare the hell out of you. Right now you’re probably still afraid of what’s coming next. And that’s okay. You can’t plan everything in your life and you can’t have control over your future. Your life is going to be a roller-coaster of craziness. You’re gonna make some plans and most of them will go through. But some of them won’t – and those are the ones that will turn your whole world around.
You’re gonna have some difficult days in front of you, situations and events that will test your strength and patience. But you will also experience the happy ones. The ones that will make you feel like you are on the top of the world.
You’ll have plans to become a teacher, just like your parents are, but as life goes on, you’ll find something else. Something that you’ll become passionate about and you’re gonna chase it. Your friends and family won’t understand at first, but don’t worry, they’ll come around. Yes, you’ll seek for their approval and support, but once you’ll realize that the only support you need, is yourself, you’ll let them go.
You’re gonna have some relationships that will hurt, make you cry, make you angry and disappointed, but that’s totally fine, because you’re gonna learn so much and come out so much stronger.
You’re gonna date one person in particular, who will change your life and that person is YOU. You’ll learn to love yourself, accept yourself, be yourself and that new found self-respect will enable you to do great things. Amazing things! It’s gonna take some time, but you’ll realize you’re pretty amazing person. Of course, not everybody will like you and it will be hard to accept, because you love making people smile and you love making people laugh. But there will be one day, one moment, when you’ll stop making everybody else happy and you’ll follow your heart. It won’t be an easy transition, but once the storm is over and you’ll see a peak of sunshine, it’s going to get brighter.
You’ll try to always do the right thing, but sooner or later, you’ll realize that you are, just like everybody else, a flawed human being, who makes mistakes. So don’t beat yourself up!
You’ll go through difficult life changes that will help you grow as a person. Some people might not understand it and that’s okay, because the only person that needs to understand it, is you. You are the only person in your shoes, not anybody else. Just stay true to yourself and do what makes you the happiest.
Once you open up yourself to others, you’ll make a lot of friends, but be careful who you let close to you. Not everybody wants the best for you. You’ll meet some people who will change your life forever – in a positive way of course. Be grateful for them, because they are the ones that love you for who you really are. Those that help you, that listen to you, that support you. Love them, because those are the ones that matter and that add value to your life.
Never look back on something you already did. And don’t see those things as a waste of time. Everything you’ve already done, you’ve done for some reason. Maybe it worked out, maybe it didn’t. Learn from every situation, no matter if it’s good or bad.
Always help people, especially those that need your help the most. It doesn’t matter if you give them something or just listen, talk or be there for them. Every single thing counts, even if it’s the tiniest thing in the world. Devote a slice of your energy towards making the world suck a little less.
Forget people who hurt or disappointed you. We are all flawed human beings who make mistakes and trust me, you’re going to make a lot of them. As I already said, learn from everything that you experience, get up and move on stronger and braver.
Every single person you’ll meet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly get to know them – the truth might surprise you. The look on first sight will sometimes make you misjudge people. But don’t worry. Take time to know those people well, because you never know what story they’ve written through their life.
You are going to accomplish things that you never thought were possible. Mostly because you are a fighter and you never give up. So, keep fighting!
Through your life, you sometimes might forget about yourself, your health and soul. Take time for yourself. Do things by yourself. Go on an adventure, paint your nails, go to movies, read a good book. In all this rush, you can’t forget about yourself. Make some time, even if it’s just 5 minutes per day.
There is no right or wrong way to live your life. This is your story and you get to decide what goes on the next page and when the next chapter starts or ends. Follow your dreams and goals and never give up. Be brave, be courageous, try new things. Don’t be scared of the unknown. Step out of your comfort zone, because those will be the moments that will move you forward. Give yourself the opportunity to be the best version of yourself. Last and probably the most by Provider” href=”#20988619″> important thing, always do what makes you happy. Did you hear that? Do what makes YOU happy, not everybody else. Be positive, put the smile on your face and live the life you’ve always wanted to live.
