A Girl’s Letter to Herself №9

Dear self,

There is a lot I want to apologize to you for,

Forgive me for all the moments I let you down when you were younger. I apologize to you for struggling with a lack of self-discipline over and over again. I failed to reaffirm the belief I have in you, which led me to doubt your confidence. I’m sorry for questioning and lowering your esteem time without a number, for beating you up, and for seeking external validation. My apologies to you for all the instances I neglect your interests. To rely on others was wrong of me. I’m sorry for that too.

And finally, I realized and accepted that you’re a constant work in progress.

I will do my best to ensure that you keep progressing.

With lots of love,

Asmaa.

Dear self,

A parent-child relationship is one of the strongest and profound bonds that exists!

Respect and honor your parents. Treat them with loving care. They have the utmost importance in your life that is irreplaceable. Be humble and kind to them. Express your love for them in the best possible manner at all times.

Call, visit, and spend time with them.

Earn your parents’ blessings and put a smile on their faces while you still can!

With lot of love

Asmaa

Dear Self,

Be ambitious, set your life goals, and plan on how to attain them. You have to be responsible and take charge of your life. If you don’t, the universe will regardless of your age and gender.

Identify the things that interest you and work diligently to their manifestation.

If you don’t indulge in bringing your dreams into life, you will surely be a tool to achieving others’

With lots of love

Dear Self.

It’s crucial to be intentional when it comes to the people you let into your life.

Surround yourself with incredible beings who will lift you and contribute to your growth.

Dear self, never hesitate to cut all the toxic relationships you maintain. The ones that spread negativity and affect you mentally, emotionally, or spiritually.

Don’t give a place for toxicity in your life. You should know that you are allowed to set strict boundaries with relatives who hurt you constantly without care.

Preserve your energy and protect your mental health at all costs.

With lots of Love

Dear self,

Be you at all times unapologetically

Don’t try to change who you are unreasonably

In your quest to fit in society

For it will never cease demanding until it drains you thoroughly

Work on yourself diligently

Keep reinventing yourself for a better version of yourself unceasingly

For your growth being your greatest asset

With lots of love

Asmaa

My dearest self,

No doubt learning from experts in the field you want to excel in will aid and speed up the journey towards achieving your ambitions. Because those experts have the experience, they are familiar with the process and have passed through your current stage.

But I want you to know and always keep in mind that you can’t stop pushing and give up your dreams simply because you did not get a mentor to put you through the way. If you’re lucky to get one, ensure to learn and benefit to the fullest. If not, be self-motivated and determined enough to go after what you want.

The power to harness your potential lies within you; don’t kill it by constantly doubting your capabilities.

Take control and fight for what you aspire!

With lots of love

Asmaa

Dearest self,

Be strong enough to overcome every challenge life has to throw at you. Yes, I know that you’re doing your best, but you see, life can be so overwhelming at times that your best might not be enough to conquer the battle.

Work harder and smarter. Achieve all your aspirations because each of them means so much that you can’t give up on any. Never cease believing in yourself. I believe in you 100%.

Dearest self, expect the least from people to get fewer disappointments. Be positive and keep going. Always remember that I got your back. I believe in you. Continue believing in yourself.

With lots of love

Asmaa
