Dear Me: Advice to my Younger Self

Silence is not strength.

It is only a way to let your worries win. It does you no good to keep everything bottled up. You’ll realise that one day. But wouldn’t it be better to realise that now?

Crying is not weakness.

Think about how strong it makes you to stand up and say you’re not okay. Think about how much courage it takes to stand up to your fears. You are not weak. No matter what they tell you. You are strong. You will always be strong.

Don’t let them to tell you what to do.

You are different. Be proud of that. You don’t have to be the same as everyone else. You don’t have to follow their rules; you don’t have to play their games. You and only you, are in charge of your own life.

Stop torturing yourself.

I know that you want to be accepted, and I know you want to fit in. But the people who accept you, will never want you to fit in, they will love you for who you are. You might not have found them yet, but the most precious things in life, are worth waiting for.

Stop being afraid.

You are intelligent. You know your own mind; you know what you want. Stop trying to dim your light because  you’re afraid of what other people will say and think. Stand up for what you believe in.

Start today.

You have so many ideas and thoughts and things you want to do. You could always start tomorrow, but think where you would be if you made that change now. Think about all the possibilities, all the things you could achieve, think about who you could be.

Learn to accept yourself for who you are.

Things get hard, you know that. Your past is your past. And people will say it doesn’t define you. But it does. It makes you stronger. It makes you more aware. There will always be days when everything seems too much and nothing makes sense,that’s a part of who we are, but always remember, after every hardship comes ease, and all you can do is pray for a better tomorrow.
