Dear my younger self,
It’s been a long time that I didn’t write to you. But you know that I miss you a lot. We had such a wonderful time together. I still remember those days where I was still learning not only the academic stuff but also about the society and the world itself. That was the time where I started to broaden my mind and started accepting the people from different backgrounds. I went to several states, saw people who spoke different languages and followed different culture and traditions. You made so many friends and some of them are so good that I can keep for lifetime and share my secrets. You learned about technology including computer which is helping me now to connect with my parents and friends even though we are miles apart. You read so many books and gave me a wonderful space to hide each time. Your sleepless nights with your friends where you roamed the streets enjoying street foods gave me sweet memories to remember for the life.
I’m not afraid to tell you that you did some mistakes too. You were so poor in making decisions about your own life which had a great impact on me later. You were so naive to trust people who were not good enough for your time and attention and got hurt so many times. Sometimes, you were so stubborn to accept the facts because you thought that you were right and were not even thinking about other possibilities. Lack of wisdom made you to jump on certain opportunities and then to get disappointed later. You didn’t have the patience to wait for the best ones to come and opted for the things which you thought were good for the time being.
I know that I gave you a list of mistakes that you did which affected me a lot but I want to assure you that I love you a lot. It’s because of you, who made me who I’m today. I learned a lot from all the mistakes you did. Time made you to go for a trial and error method and I got all the results. You gave me bitter and sweet memories which is essential for a good life.
At last, I want to tell you that I would really like to visit you but you know that it’s not possible. I will always keep you in my thoughts as you are so dear to my heart.
Your older self
