this is a letter she wrote to her younger self, but i feel like she wrote it to me.
Don’t be afraid of who you are. In the times that lie ahead, you will have to stand up for yourself and hold your ground for what you believe in. And it’s important that you do so, because those moments will define you. Put your relationship with God first, and everything else will fall into place. Cherish your sisters, your family, and your true friends. You’ll know who they are because they’ll only speak truth to you. Remember that love never needs to be rushed. Take your time. When you truly love and honor yourself, real love will find you. I want you to know how capable you are. You can do anything; all you need to carry is your courage.
