Dear 20-year-old Self


Dear 20- year-old Self,

You are not fat. Repeat.

Don’t get married because you are afraid to be alone. Divorce is not the end of the world. You will bounce back.

In fact, you should enjoy being alone. There will be a time you will crave alone time because you never have any.

You have a few friends (and meet a few more) that will last a lifetime. Savor those. Don’t worry about the other people.

That way you have of charming people? Don’t lose that. It will make you successful in your career.

You will be a wife and a mother, but not in the way or timeframe you expect. So relax a little.

You know your strengths and weaknesses. Don’t let anyone (especially men) tell you any different.

You have made mistakes and you will make many more.

But, you are a good person. A damn good person.

Love,
Me

P.S. It’s going to be OK.
