Dear Self ……


Dear Self,
Sometimes you’re just a bit too harsh on yourself. So much that you often forget to live. To breathe. To just be happy. Life is short. Don’t waste it seeing what you are not, what you can’t be and who you will never be. Stop focusing on those who neglect you or those who criticize you. Self, you must accept that not everyone will love you, not everyone will return the kindness you have shown to them. It’s just life. There’s nothing you can do to change that. You simply just have to continue living and hope that some day, things will be different.
Don’t be sad. But today, choose happiness. Why?
You deserve it. You’ve been through so much and you’re still going through a lot and look at you, you’re still surviving. And that alone should make you happy. Yes, you’re not where you want to be as yet, but you’re still close, right? So today, forget all the negative. Forget the past and move on being happy. You have this one life to live. In the end, it won’t matter about the stresses, the heartache, the pain but about how you rose above them and lived a beautiful life, as an example for others to follow.
It’s not easy to be happy when life seems so bent on keeping you down and it seems you’re doing everything in vain. But you just try. Take it a step at a time. And never ever forget to breathe.
Honey, it will all work out in the end. I promise!
