Often times we may wish that we could go back in time and give our former selves advice and words of wisdom. If you could go back in time, what would advice or encouragement would you give to yourself?
Dear 15 year old me,
1. Don’t be hard on yourself because …
You are doing the best you can. You have had to fight through so much at such a young age, and you are doing your best with the hand you were dealt.
2. The relationship you’re in ….
will break your heart, but I have good news! You are going to be okay. Heartbreak does not last forever. This is the first time you have said I love you to a man and someday you will say it to someone who deserves those words. Time will heal your broken heart and you will forgive this person for hurting you. I guess in some ways I could argue that this boy was also doing the best he could do at the time as well.
3. You will get through this because …
you are resilient. You were made to get back up again when things don’t go as planned. Your family will be there for you when you need them the most. They will speak words of life into you and assure you that better times are to come. You know what they say, Mom is always right.
4. Don’t get caught up in thinking …
about the future. I know you stress and worry that you will live in a broken place forever. You play scenarios in your head over and over again of things going wrong. What an active imagination you have Jubilee! Use it… but use it for good. Instead, think of everything that could go right. Think of the positive changes that might just happen for you. Don’t get sucked into “What if this goes wrong…”. If you are stubborn and need to visualize the future, you might as well picture a happy one.
5. These experiences will help you learn …
that you can overcome anything. You will learn to trust your gut. You will learn to invest time in those who love you fully. You will learn to fight for happiness. You will learn that Jesus is with you. You will learn that things get better. I can’t stress this enough Jubilee, THINGS GET BETTER.
