What Would I tell the 10 year old version of myself…?
There is so much things I would tell myself:
To believe in myself
To love myself before I love anyone else
To never care about how other people see me
Don’t expect anyone to make you happy
I have been heartbroken so many times because I put my heart and happiness in someone else’s hands. I listened to people while they belittled me and believed that they were right. I always worried about how people look at me and that made me a very shy person. I would look in the mirror and hated the reflection of myself just because of what was said about me.
I have come to a stage in my life where I am so content with who I am and where I am. I do not entertain people’s thoughts about me. I also believe that if I am not happy within myself how will I ever make anyone else happy. I am important, I come first before anyone else. My happiness counts.
10-year-old version of me, I hope you now proud of where we are. I wish at 10 you were stronger and believed in yourself because now as I head to my 40’s I have the courage to take on anything. I am more challenging than I have ever been. I love myself so much more now. I just started in believing in myself.
Currently, we are living in a world where saying "no" is usually a lot easier than saying "yes,". It is important to bring up children who don't feel that negativity has a higher value than positivity. Encouraging words can have a truly lasting effect on kids. So we should choose to use phrases that will make them feel good about themselves inside and out. Phrases that will stick with them through tough times.
