She’s so gone

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Powerful Suggestion.”

 

Dear old self,
I want you to know that you’re beautiful. You may not understand why, but just trust me that you are. You are so blinded by the pursuit of making others happy that you forgot the most important person: yourself. You live a lie and one day you will wake up and it’s gonna break you, but it’s okay. You are more than this. You are worth it. You are brave. You are amazing. You are loved and you are full of love. Never forget that. You are whole. You made some mistakes, but you are not your past. You can always change, always be a better person. Never look down on yourself again because you are important and you deserve to be happy. Stop trying to fix others, first fix yourself. I am convinced you will make it because you are a fighter. A warrior. A brave girl. You never back down and you never leave things unresolved. You are smarter than you think and stronger than you seem. You should feel proud of yourself.
With love,
Youre 17-year-old self

      1. You are smarter than you think and stronger than you seem is very similar to the AA Milne quote: “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” It a quote I love so until now I didn’t realise yours was written in the reverse order. I meant it as a compliment.
