Hello, I wonder where you are and what you’re doing as you read this letter

Right now I’m 15 and there are things worrying me that I can’t talk to anyone about.

I thought that if I wrote a letter to my future self

I could tell you all the things that I’ve kept bottled up inside me

Right now I feel like I can’t win, like I want to cry, like I’ll just disappear

Who am I supposed to trust to get me through this?

I’ve only got one heart and it’s been broken apart so many times

I’m living in the painful present

I’m living in it now

Hello, my 15 year old self, thank you for writing. There are things I want you to know

If you keep asking yourself what you’re aiming for and where you’re going, eventually you’ll figure it out

The stormy waters of adolescence are tough to navigate through

But turn your ship of dreams towards the shores of tomorrow

Right now don’t give up, don’t cry. When you feel like you’ll disappear

Listen to your own voice and keep moving forward

I’m an adult, but I’ve still been hurt and there are nights I can’t get to sleep

I’m living in the bittersweet present

Everything that happens in life has a meaning, don’t be scared to follow your dreams

Keep on believing

Right now I feel like I can’t win, like I want to cry, like I’ll just disappear

Who am I supposed to trust to get me through this?

Oh, don’t give up, don’t cry. When you feel like you’ll disappear

Listen to your own voice and keep moving forward

No matter how old you are, you can’t get through life without some sadness

Let everyone see you smile and go on living

go on living
