To my younger self
To your younger self,
I know you because I was once you. You were always angry, so angry to the point where your dad took you to anger management classes. You would get into fights without any real cause behind it. Then, the school would suspend you because of it. I am really proud of you by the way because now we were able to cool our anger down to the point where we were able to graduate high school; with A’s and B’s throughout our junior and senior years.
You are now in college working on becoming a Digital Marketing Manager and you also gained a position in an internship as a Social Media Manager, and with two years of hard work you gained a great number of followers on Tiktok.
Stop being so angry at the world. It’s not your fault that you are going through what you’re going through and it’s also not your parent’s fault either because they don’t know what you are going through. You can’t change the past, you can only look toward the future. Drop the anger and look at your strengths and continue to be brave and strong, and lean on the people who care about you. All they want to do is see you succeed.
Love, 23-Year-Old Kayjah
You are an incredible person and have so much to be proud of. You are so brave and strong, as you have shown courage by facing the things that hurt and finding healthy ways to heal. I think each one of us struggles as young people to cope with whatever hurt we face. And the way in which you worked through your anger to become the sweet, loving, kind, hardworking, honest and focused person you are today is just proof of how special you truly are as a person. Nothing life throws at you can or will hold you back. And each day you have proven that by the way in which you have lived your life in your first two decades. Keep dreaming big. And always remember your story. It will give you strength when you face new obstacles. There is nothing you can’t do!
with love of love and support,
This is a great letter to your younger self. It’s very inspiring and can give hope to those going through that tough time in their life dealing with a hurricane amount of pain & anger. It’s also a great reminder that we’re not alone and that most people have dealt with some painful moments in their past. Your journey has been a powerful one so far. I believe there are a lot more amazing things to come. I definitely can relate to having that anger at the world. It feels like the world has a vendetta against you. So you want to retaliate back to the world. Your letter shows just how time can change your life going from tough times to better times. Just from the Unsealed conversation a few weeks ago, I could see your bubbly personality & spirit shine through. I hope it continues to shine and inspire others to believe, that their life can change for the better too.
