To my Younger Selves

People & Relationships, The Self, Women's Room

Age 5

Hey Kat,

You have the right to be a child. You have the right to cry and demand the adults in your life to take care of you and not depend on you. You have to learn that it is not right to trespass other people’s boundaries only because you couldn’t help your own pain and mess from spilling over.

Be tender but tough. Be tough and wise in tenderness.


Age 21

Dearest Daena,

This deep shit you’re in is an opportunity to know yourself and transform into the person you feel in your soul you should become. Just take each and every blow. You’ll come out of this more alive, stronger and wiser because you are a lot bigger than all your troubles.

Learn to look at your monsters eye-to-eye. Learn to reach the opposite end of the tunnel by summoning all your courage. Learn to follow the light.

We can do this! Fight!


Age 27

Dearest Daena,

The beauty of the universe’s wisdom is right before you. You can see it because you are ready. Don’t worry. Your independence will come in time. Believe in nature’s own process of healing and liberation.

In time, you’ll land at your own feet; they may be sore and thick with scars but they will be more capable of standing.

Be humble to accept all of which you have yet to learn. Let yourself be guided. Forgive. Express your gratitude. You have the right to fall flat on your face, change your mind and stand up again.

You are worthy of many second chances. Redemption is in your hands. Seize it.
The universe is on your side as long as you stay true to yourself.
