Letter to my younger self

Hello beautiful,
I just want you to know that you are enough. No matter what anyone says in the future, you are a special creation from God. You don’t always have to say year for the fear of getting rejected. You don’t always have to agree for the fear of being unloved. As a matter of fact, live in courage not in fear. Go out on a limb and take a chance. What is the worst that can happen. Sometimes, put yourself before others. Everyone won’t appreciate the sacrifices you make for them. Everyone won’t care like you do. Don’t get mad because the love you are looking for is not in that man. It’s in yourself. You have to find love and acceptance within yourself. You will not be able to find it in the world. If you try, you will be disappointed. When people show you who they are, please believe them. They are the true source. Actions speak louder than words ever will. Look at the signs. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Trust your gut. You know way more than you think. People may call you crazy or question your reasoning but it’s ok. They are not meant to understand. Your path in life may not be straight. Most times the road will be curved with many pit stops along the way. Don’t let this discourage you. Trust that the destination will be reached. It may not be a quick as you want but slow and steady wins the race. Stand strong to your beliefs. If a person has a problem with your moral code then they don’t need to be in your circle. Love yourself! I can not express that enough. You have alot to be thankful for. Your mind is unique and your story will continue to be written. Beautiful girl, you are meant to stand out in a crowd. Never let anyone dim your light to make themselves feel better. You can’t control how people feel about themselves but you can encourage them. Your advice is priceless. People will seek you out for it. Don’t be scared to let your voice be heard. Someone needs to hear what you have to say. Please don’t get any credit cards. If you can’t buy it with cash then you don’t need it. Credit is so important in your future. Don’t blow it with frivolous purchases and random splurges. You will want a house one day. Be careful. Don’t believe everyone that says they love you. They don’t. They can’t possibly love you if they don’t love themselves. Everyone can talk a good game but everyone isn’t ready for the love you have to give. Don’t stay in relationship just because you don’t want to be alone or lonely. In the long run, you will regret this. Enjoy your alone time. This will be how you get to know and truly appreciate yourself. This is how you will know who you truly are and what you really want. Please choose your major in college wisely. You dont want to end up with a degree that you don’t even use. Go with your passion. You are a motivator. Focus on that. Find a field where you will love to get up and go to work. Make a live for yourself where you don’t need a vacation from. Last but not least, develop your own relationship with God. You may not believe in what you were taught by your parents, but find what you believe in your heart. Spend time with the Lord everyday and I promise that you will go far.
