Dear Younger self,

Love yourself and never compare yourself to anyone around you, we all grow at different pace

LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF

Don’t be afraid to express yourself, it’s OK to make mistakes because you’d learn early and able to make amends early

Younger self, don’t be afraid to come out of your comfort zone, try new things, explore, have fun most importantly don’t over do things and don’t make unnecessary mistakes

Wow, you are an adult now how time flies

When you about going to secondary school, you wanted to be a doctor but now you don’t even know what plan life as in store for you

Adulthood is scam

LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF

Younger self, they told me when I was your age that I would have time to sleep as I grow older it’s a lie now I hardly get enough Time to sleep because life isn’t as easy as I thought when I was your age

You’ll meet a lot of people growing up, don’t make the mistake I made believing everyone was my friend.

Sadly, I had to learn the hard way

LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF

Don’t believe all they tell you or the advice they give you, think before you act don’t just follow what people say blindly, don’t let them talk you into what you don’t want to do

Younger self, mom should be your best friend, that way you’d make less mistakes and you’d be able to talk to her about anything and everything

I used to think mom didn’t like me. I used to choose friends over family, don’t make the mistakes I made

Family before anything

LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF

Younger self, you are beautiful the way you are don’t ever doubt yourself or your color, love your big stomach, your slightly bent leg and your color with pride

You are wonderfully and beautifully made

Younger self, believe in yourself, you aren’t in a race with anyone don’t compare your self to other people.

Build your self confidence before anything and think about your mental health first before you agree to do anything for anyone

The fact they achieved or did something before you doesn’t mean they will be better than you or you won’t get there

Life isn’t a race, enjoy your journey

LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF

Younger self, don’t copy what other people are doing, don’t be a second version of someone else be yourself, don’t wish to be like someone else or wish for their life

Younger self, don’t change yourself or anything about yourself because of anyone they gotta love you the way you are and accept you with your imperfections and flaws, no one is perfect

Be yourself and work on yourself

LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF

Finally younger self, travel and make memories, take reasonable risk, have fun, enjoy your childhood, enjoy your secondary school days, make good memories but keep in mind everyone isn’t your friend

It’s okay to know a lot of people but don’t be fast calling them your friends, FRIEND is a big word use it wisely

LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF

With love,

From your older self
