I wrote a Dear Younger Self letter – to younger me. It was a very freeing release of long held emotional pain. I then produced it into a Spoken Word Video – down below!
I’ve often wondered if I could time travel back to my childhood, what insights and advice I’d share with younger me.
I would want to reassure younger me about all the troubling aspects of her life – which she finds painful and uncomfortable. I’d want to ease her sadness, regrets, fears, struggles.
Plus I’d want to warn her a bit about the future – but without giving away too many spoilers.
After all, I believe all of my tumultuous experiences – in the end – were helpful lessons for grown up me to absorb!
Basically, I’d want to encourage younger me to feel good about who she is – and what she has the power to become – so she feels safe and confident during those times she felt ready to give up.
I kept the advice general – so this emotional letter not only applies to my younger self – but your younger you too!
Writing this Dear Younger Me Letter was very cathartic. And so was turning my letter to younger me into an inspiring Spoken Word Video – which is now up on YouTube.
Be sure to watch till the end – for an empowering reminder!
I hope watching this short but powerful video helps you to forgive your younger self – and inspires you to love yourself a little harder – for everything you’ve been through.
So please share my “Dear Younger Me” video with someone you know who is younger and struggling.
