Dear Future Me...

Dear Future Me,

I don't think I'm going to make it! I'm not good enough for anybody, my mom says I need to exercise more because I'm not as skinny as my sister. I already play three sports and go to body conditioning three days a week on top of the sports. My grades are bad because I'm so tired all the time and I just want to sleep instead of listen to the most boring teachers ever. Plus, I'm not as smart as my brother was and the compare me all the time to him. The counselor calls me into his office and says I need better self esteem. Where am I going to find that with everyone bringing me down. Would anyone really miss me?

Dear Past Me,

I must say, I am so proud of you for how far have come. Good job. You took each setback as a lesson and didn't let them or yourself steer you off the direction that you saw yourself going. Sure, there have been times where I know you haven't felt good enough or qualified enough. Thank goodness you stopped letting people dectate your life. It was seriously starting to piss me off. You realized you don't need a man to make you feel beautiful or to wear a size 2 to feel good about yourself. You have taken defeat and turned it into motivation. Motivation to do better and to be better. And because of that, you have boosted yourself and found out certain qualities in your life that you didn't know that you had.
