Dear Self

Write a letter to your 14-year-old self. Tomorrow, write a letter to yourself in 20 years.

Dear Fourteen year old me,

Three years from now, someone will force you to marry somebody you don’t even like let alone love. Don’t listen. Don’t obey. Even it means being disowned. Runaway, follow your dreams, walk your own path and don’t look back. It’s not worth it.

P.S.

I don’t want to wait another day to write to a twenty-year-old you so I’m including the message here. Divorce that jerk or otherwise you’re in for a long nightmare. Forget your family because they will not value your hard work and will never appreciate all the sacrifices you made for them. You’re nothing but a meal ticket to these people. They don’t care. All they want from you is money. Nothing else. Think about your own future because one day you will get awfully sick and you will find yourself alone. You need to take care of yourself. Starting now. Nobody will do it for you. It will not be easy. Especially for someone like you but you will make it. Have faith in yourself and be strong.

Always.
