Letter to My Younger Self…

Dear Rayven,

I know you don’t know me yet, but I promise you that when you meet me you will love me just as much as I love you. I wish I could hug you right now and tell you that everything will be alright because believe it or not it will. I love the person your becoming. I know you are struggling and trying to find yourself, but one day you will discover that you never will. Life is all about creating yourself and your time is now.

Stop waiting for things to get better. You will regret the moments you let past if you waste your time waiting for something to change to be happy. Happiness is within so no matter how many times you move and evolve things won’t get better if you wait for it.

Happiness is a mental concept. It’s all in your head.

Don’t let what other people have intimidate you. Money and clothes does not define one’s value. You don’t have to feel beneath someone because of what they have. Some of the most successful people struggled and didn’t come from much but, true value is built in character. Clothes and material things do not define one’s worth.

Don’t get so caught up in always feeling like you have to be perfect. God knows your heart so he understands if you slip up sometimes. What everyone else thinks is irrelevant. Don’t dim who you are to fit into other people’s standards.

Stop portraying the person people think you are and be who you really are. Don’t hold back and be free. Who cares what people think. People will judge you whether they know you or not. If you speak they will find something to say and if you don’t they still will find something to say about you. Live your truth freely.

Stop letting people who don’t do anything for you control you. What people say about you or do to you is none of your business. One day they will have to answer for how they treated you.

Stop always acting like the victim. Being sorry for yourself won’t change your situation.

If life gives you rain storms them make and ocean and dive in it.

You got this trust me and stop holding everything in. Letting things out are therapeutic. When you talk about the things that are bothering you then you can get closure. Dwelling on the pain won’t help you heal.

Don’t make it so easy for someone to steal your heart. Your wall can be your weakness at times. Some guys may use that to manipulate you. Recognize game and move accordingly.

And I know that you hate the fact that everyone has boobs before you, but trust me they will grow.

Pay attention to the people that are trying to reach out to you. You pass up the opportunity to make a lifetime friend when you distant yourself from people who try to talk to you.

Everyone is not out to get you.

Lastly, I want you to know that you are beautiful. You may not see it yet but you are drop dead gorgeous. Don’t let anyone make you feel otherwise.
