I miss my childhood. Life feels immediate. You owe nothing to nobody. Your thoughts are in the here and now. You can be anything. You can be anywhere. Reality is a nuisance. Your only responsibility is to have a good time. You are also less likely to judge yourself and others. Adventure is wherever you are. Little things are compelling and stimulating. I can go on and on. We undergo a change in us on our journey to adulthood. We start to forget about the power we have inside. We disregard our innate ability to create and become whomever we envision to be.
You should play more. Playing will build your creativity and confidence. Physical activities will compel you to learn new things, conquer your fears, and build your confidence. Besides that, you’ll get to meet up with other children and teenagers in the neighbourhood. It doesn’t matter if they win or lose. Playing is about working together and trying your best. Switch off the Gameboy and television. Spend more time outdoors and in nature. You should be more physically active. Go for a walk, stretch your legs and absorb the sunshine. It can be surprisingly therapeutic and healing. You’ll feel happier too.
You are beautiful in your own way. Your body should be honoured and it doesn’t matter if it differs from the standard criteria of beauty. Still, your physical appearance should not be your most notable quality. The girl inside is worthier of attention. Intelligence, kindness, and compassion are more deserving of society’s approval or admiration. Moral values will build your character. I know that you are inclined to correlate your physical appearance with self-worth. I want you to recognize and appreciate what makes you unique, beyond the superficiality of appearance. Carry on with nurturing your beauty, both inside and out.
Take heed of our parents when you’ve reached your adolescent years. I feel contrite about the false sense of superiority I had in high school since I’ve been a university student. It is a typical feeling that most teenagers have about life. It is the feeling of being know-alls and not at all needing help from others. Once I enrolled into university and are doing things on my own, I understood that I had judged incorrectly and I was in the wrong. I appreciate my greater independence, but there are responsibilities and challenges of adulthood that I found myself lamenting about. I pushed myself to adapt and learn.
Everything will be alright. I’ve accepted this saying wholeheartedly after going through personal experiences that opened my eyes. I also find myself telling my family and friends this phrase from time to time. If you trust that circumstances will get better, disheartening situations will improve and you’ll be back at the top of the rollercoaster of life. I want to tell you, from the bottom of my heart, that no matter what it is you’re going through or struggling with at the moment, it will come to pass. In time, you will look back on it as a mere memory and you’ll feel a pride emerge within yourself for embodying the strength to move forth. I’m going to tell you that you’ll be stronger. I see you. I feel you. I love you.
