Dear Future Me,

I am a mess right now. Not because of anyone else but because I did it. I shut everyone out, I isolated myself, I became depressed, I made bad choices, and I hit rock bottom. Today I start to climb.

I hope that by the time I become you, the battles are won and the scars have all faded to nothingness. I hope we let someone in and learn to live happily. I will fight hard now so you can be free later.

I am writing this to remind you how far you have come. Whenever you feel discouraged, look back remember me. Remember the day when we had enough and keep fighting. This is a war we can win if we do it together.

With Hope

You, 2018

This was me two years ago, like you took the words out of my mind. Everything changes and when you put the effort in you'll be better for it. The you right now will be fond memory and nothing more than a learning curve in your life. Keep it up and keep pushing for your future self and you wont regret it

Dear Past Me,

We lost someone very important to us yesterday. Thank you for going to him when you did so I would have no regrets. Thank you for driving back home every chance you got, even when you were tired. Thank you for drawing closer to the family when you did so I have someone to lean on. Thank you for confiding in your friends instead of standing alone so I am comforted. I had the chance to say goodbye and he had the chance to say thank you. The battles aren't won yet, but they are in our favor.

Future Me,

It's my turn to fight now. I'll become stronger and do better so you can have the same peace I have even in the worst circumstances.

You, July 2018
