A Letter to my past self
You amazing human being,
You have been through a lot,
You have been doubting your self worth,
You have been seeking validation when you never actually needed them.
You have been trying to hear compliments from selfish lovers, just to figure out what will define you, make you feel safe and less alone.
When the truth was that-
You already have an amazing body, an amazing mind with a voice, your own voice.
And your opinion matters.
Listen to your gut feeling, it's never wrong
But instead take more time to make yourself happy first.
Grow spiritually and mentally it will never let you down,
Be patient and always be kind,
Never go with the flow, instead make plans for your future.
Because what you do today will one day surely be worth it all.
Do not depend on temporary love to give you permanent happiness,
Take time to figure out your likes and dislikes, never second guess what you want.
Because, the truth is you will always know.
So never pretend to be someone you are not. No one else will know you better than you do.
Constantly improve yourself and the most important thing- have no regrets
They create a lot of baggage,
And sometimes you don't want to remember certain memories,
At that point of time you know it within you somewhere that, you allowed yourself to be vulnerable and you knew it would hurt you.
Because, gentle human..
People don't always help you be better they can sometimes make you be the worst version of yourself.
So do not fall for that. You already know what is the right thing. Do yourself right.
Lastly, if you have made peace within yourself,
Go spread that to other people,
Be the person who will help others be better.
For I know then, you will truly know what it is like-
To Love yourself.
