Dear Past me!
Dear Little Sherrie
I know your mother expects you to befriend children at school who are teased by others. Forgive her naivety. She couldn’t possibly know you’d be singled out in those ugly dated hand me downs she forced you to wear against your will. Don’t worry you’ll never do that to your children. Your mom holds a lot of credence in authority, a mindset you won’t have as an adult. You are learning dear child by her mistakes.
You’ll look back and realize you looked pretty cute, even though the spark is void in your eyes. It will return on the birth of your own offspring. This lonely sadness you feel now will foster a future heart for children. A profound empathy and understanding that will overtake you, turning you into a haven for kids forlorn! Don’t fret, happiness will be yours.
You are learning from what you live. Do not repeat mistakes of those adults in your midst dear one. You’re heart is so big, you care deeply that your mother works too hard, and that your brother is teased also. You are constantly helping and nurturing others without acknowledgment. Unfortunately this will continue into adulthood, some will take advantage of your patient nature. Don’t worry; stay kind and you will be rewarded ten fold.
Dear Future me
Dear Ms Giggle Goddess
You have come a long way baby! Evolving into the woman you were always meant to be. An Artist, a children’s author illustrator! Never imagining this is where you’d be today. When you felt the dream of being a musician die, you gave up and chased the money instead. Oh it was fulfilling for a time. You were fiscally more comfortable than your friends, but sincerely you had big chunks of void nestled in your soul.You worked too hard, played too hard, chasing empty happiness.
