Dear Miss 24,
As frightening as this phase in the unknown is, and let’s not forget the increasing societal pressures of things I’d rather not delve into at the moment,
Take a breath. Stay calm.
Saying aloud that you’ve already grown past two decades, is tough if you make it feel so.
Age is what but just a number that will remind you how much in experience and maturity you have grown. Let it not bother you because it bothers the society around.
Let’s accept the fact that you are here, right this moment, right where you are planted to grow or to bloom, to sprout or to remain still.
Be still in this moment, Love, for life can be as complicated as you make it.
Even though you sometimes overthink, know that everything shall pass. Someday you won’t remember what bothered you in the yesters.
And tomorrow’s worries have never made your day any brighter.
How about you focus on the goals on your checklist?
There’s lots to do, lots to achieve, and such exciting places to be.
It’s not a storm anymore , beloved.
It’s life. And dont make it a battlefield
until your sole focus is victory.
Live life in the now, the present, however tough that may seem.
You don’t have to feel obliged to be good and go out of your way, when you know very well, you still have to learn to say ‘No’, try to figure out how to deal with the negativity that follows your refusals.
Also note those who turn bitter when you say no , and you know you aren’t wrong to do so, then do not fall prey to fake emotional torments, but stand by yourself, you deserve to make your own decisions, and ought to let go of people who stick by you for want of something that degrades you and your self esteem. If they stick to you regardless, there’s no ulterior motive there, be not afraid to vibe.
Sometimes it’s how you treat yourself that matters more than how anyone around will treat you.
Self love my dear soul, self love will help redeem the scars of the many “I am not enoughs” your mind is filled with.
For now, as you still embark on a journey to inspire,
to create something with your fire and to grab those goals you’ve always dreamt of, let’s ensure your soul never ever tires.
