A Letter to Myself

maggie,

Don’t bottle yourself up. Cry if you need to.

Are you done crying? Good.

Now, I want you to remember this.

You are amazing. Don’t you dare forget that. Things may seem rough, but remember, you always have your family to lean on. Mom and dad will love you unconditionally. It’s okay to miss them. It’s okay to miss feeling safe and protected. It’s okay to want to turn away from everything ‘adult’. It’s okay.

Collect yourself.

You know who you are. You’re that girl that made it to college when your brother never made it out of high school. You’re that girl who works her ass off when you could have simply excused yourself. You defied the odds. Whatever it is you’re sad over right now, you can take on the challenge.

Life can feel weird. And some days, like tonight, you’ll find yourself crying alone. But it’s okay. Have those days, accept those days. Bounce back from them. Tomorrow is a new day. The days will add up to weeks, and weeks to months, and months to years. Live your day like how you want your life to be.

I love you,

maggie
