LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF – What if I could write a letter to my younger self? What if I tell my younger self, “Don’t worry. Just be yourself and keep trying your best and it will be alright”?

Hey Beautiful ! How’s your life going? I know you’re messed up right now, but it’s ok to be and that’s just a phase. At times, you’re bullied, your body changes as you are hitting puberty. But it’s okay, and it’s all going to be fine. Sometimes your heart knows certain things that your mind can’t explain. The one you call your best friend might change, but it’s okay, and it’s just a phase. You’re very strong and I’m sure you’ll not realize it now, but believe me you are very strong.
Always remember, family is the most important thing in your life. Your mom gives you the best advice, though you’ll not agree. Dad loves you way too much, but he might not express it and that’s how dads are. And brother might be your greatest enemy in your life .But he’ll also be your pillar of strength.
I know you are angry and confused about yourself. Trust me, it’s okay and you will be fine. Now you’re just a crazy butterfly who thinks life is very easy, but you have to be strong and deal with a lot. Maybe soon you’ll fall in love and feel your heart belongs to them. But, when the bubbles of romance burst within you, you’ll realize you just got used to him.
And the day you need love, you’ll find yourself alone in the crowd, but it’s again okay. One day you’ll get your love not exactly how you dreamed of but will be exactly how he will make you happy. Maybe you’d have never heard of the term adjustment, but my darling, you’ll have to adjust a lot in your life and one day you must come out of your strawberry life and live the reality.
It’ll be very hard to say goodbyes, but those goodbyes will be best for you and you are going to be very successful one day following your dreams. Believe me, you are going to meet amazing people in your life and enjoy your life to the fullest, but remember there will be many people who’ll let you down so just stay focused.
Never regret your decisions in life because if only if you commit a mistake, will you get to know what’s right and what’s wrong. All you need is a best friend who accepts your flaws and guide you. So just try to surround yourself with people who can inspire you and stop hanging out with the time passer ones.
Spend your energy on good things and wait for the right one to be by your side, you’ll accomplish things you ever wanted to. Be proud of the things you do and never give up on your life. It’s just the beginning and you’ll learn things and get to know yourself better. All it takes is some time. Always be yourself, never pretend to be like someone, and at the end, everything’s going to be fine.
