Dear Younger Self: A Letter To Younger Me with Lessons Learned

dear younger self

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.

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.

(Of which there were many!)

So I wrote a Dear Younger Self Letter.

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.
