“If you had the chance to talk to the younger you, what would you like to tell yourself?”
We’ve all made mistakes, crossed the wrong bridge and chose the wrong path. Oftentimes, we think of it as something we shouldn’t have done; saying that “if only” statements, realizing how things could have been different.
Like what I’ve said on my previous posts, I never thought I’d be the Harley that I am now. Growing up, I used to be scared and vulnerable of the things that I don’t know. I used to be weak. I used to be shy talking to people. Everyone knew how afraid I was of making my own choices because I didn’t want to fail.
“If only I was stronger, everything will be different; I can do the things that I’ve always wanted and won’t feel afraid of deciding for myself.” That’s probably what my younger self was thinking way back.
But given the chance to talk to my younger self and go back, I wouldn’t change a thing of me being weak and afraid. I won’t change the times on how I’d feel hopeless on making choices. Because if it wasn’t because of those things, I wouldn’t strive to become better.
We often try to think of our past through our mistakes that we forget how it helped us with our present. Being weak doesn’t mean you can’t be strong, being vulnerable doesn’t mean you can’t make it. And so does making mistakes.
Answering the first line, I’d tell myself that I’m on the right track and I’m more that what I think, I know that my younger self is probably on the verge of giving up, but don’t.
One’s weakness doesn’t define who he is. What’s important is what you choose to become. So be the best version of yourself .
