A letter to my younger self

Dear me,

I know you’re still young and it’s not too late to make these changes but…..

Esther, I totally understand you wish to become a strong independent woman in future just like your mom but don’t let that affect your relationships especially with the people around you.

I would also like you to cherish every moment you spend with your family and fiends because life is so precious and it can be taken away in the blink of an eye.

Your parents has been through a lot so if they give you any advice, always take it. don’t think they’re too old-fashioned because they weren’t born in your generation but this is the more reason why you should take every piece of advice they give you.

Esther, I want you to know that you will still achieve all your goals because I know you’re a passionate person but you should also know that there are obstacles on the way to greatness because life is not a bed of roses.

Finally, dont hate yourself because of your flaws and imperfections because that’s exactly what makes you unique.

I love you.

17-year-old Esther

Tell me one thing you would tell your younger self

  1. Writing a letter to my 17 year old self would be pointless because I would have ignored all my advice anyway (assuming there was some way to get it to me way back then). I’d have still wrecked Dad’s car, dated the basket case, and consumed way too much beer during finals week.

    When my kids were little, I toyed with the idea of setting up a business to archive letters written by children to their future selves, and then mail them back years or decades later. Imagine getting a letter of advice from your 10 year old self when you’re in your 30s.

    1. That’s why it’s good to start reading posts like this when you’re younger even though you can’t implement all of them now at least one or two… Thank you so much for taking your time to comment

  2. Hey,

    Loved the letter to yourself! I’m sure it is fun to write to yourself in the past as it gives more confidence.

    When i wrote a letter to myself, I loved writing it, not because i could be confident, but because i was sure the younger me is no longer going to be the naive version of what she was.

  3. Christ is King….yes, I know you know… those who don’t accept you…know that they did not accept Him FIRST… any who will not love you… KNOW that they did not LOVE Him First… I love you. … **probably tell myself some things along these lines.**

  4. This is a great post.
    To my younger self I would say:
    Find a good friend earlier in life and find your true self through research and introspection before you become a teenager.
