LETTER TO THE HAPPY KID

Today when i see parts of myself falling apart and when i fail to find solutions to my problems, i wish i had the younger version of myself. That kid knew everything. She knew when to get away with silly mistakes, cute mischiefs, big blunders and also heartbreaks. Somewhere between losing her favorite chocolate to her brother then and missing sharing that chocolate with him today, that baby girl grew up. That kid has been through a lot but she always had her way out. I am sure she must be disappointed seeing this grown up version of herself giving up on things so easily. She was born a rebel and always molded things my way. Today, when I sit in the corner of my room and cry after a stupid fight or low grades or failed career plans, i am somewhere letting her down. She prepared me for so much right since my birth and i am letting go of all that she taught me because i feel I’m alone.
That support system, that backup, that mirror of mine is right here, right next to me.
What if even she has lost her innocent smile because of me?
What if she has grown up?
What if even she feels that being a KID wont work?
Who would i have other than her?
I need her. I need the younger me. Because that baby girl has all the answers.
Today, i want to tell the younger version of me…. Hold on tight! The best is yet to come.
You are going to see great things and be really proud of me. I promise.
