Dear 11-year old me,
I know that life is hard and it will keep getting harder and harder every day but you need to be strong. You need to be strong for you.
You will be okay soon, that’s what matters at the end of the day, right? Yes, there are and always will be people who don’t like you no matter what and they will try to make your life a living hell. But be strong and move on. Some day karma will pay back all the bad things they do to you.
What really matters is that you are happy with yourself and love you the way you are. Always, and I mean always, stay true to yourself – you can be different, you can like different kind of thing and you don’t have to sacrifice your own happiness to please or to like someone, it’s not worth it.
Be patient and you will get what you want. Don’t try to get something really fast when it hurts you in any way. Good things take time. Always remember that. Sometimes the things you want come in the most unexpected time but it may be the time when you need them the most.
Do not let people get to you. You are beautiful the way you are because that’s how you were made so you don’t have to cover it all up with makeup. Makeup is just a way to express yourself in a different way but it’s not something you feel like you are forced to wear.
Also don’t let the bullies get to you, just because you get along very well with boys, does not mean that you are a slut. That just means that you are friendly, that you get people and that you have big empathy towards other people so you understand others emotions more.These words what they will say to you are harsh and they will hurt but you must ignore them because they are not right and they certainly don’t define you. These are just some stupid words what jealous girls say to hurt you.
And I know that sometimes you think that you are alone but you aren’t. Your friends and family will have your back and they will support you. Maybe they don’t always show it as much as they could but you are not alone in this world. If you need help, just ask. They can’t read your mind so you have to speak up more and stand up for yourself.
your older and wiser 15-year old self.
Okay, so that was my letter to my younger self. It is something a little different but I felt like there were things I would’ve needed to know a few years back and maybe this would even help me or any of you in the future.
What would you like to say to your younger self that you have learned
now but wish you would’ve known when you were younger?
