It’s quiet here writing this letter tonight. If I push back the curtains it’s dark outside with the exception of light gleaming from the various houses surrounding me. Let me tell you.
There are days I want to pick up an article and throw them in the recycle bin but I have to push through it. Where am I going with this? I guess I’m trying to tell you to dreams extensively. I want you to know that it’s okay to run blindly after your dreams punch that wall that stands in the way as hard as you can with all you’ve got till it goes down.
What with all the social media likes you get on your pages? I hope you don’t get carried away by social media publicity. I hope you don’t get a big head and think that you are bigger than what you actually are because you get a hundred likes on a photo.
We all have to do our time in order to become who we truly want to be. I hope it doesn’t spoil our self-esteem either, because we are beautiful with or without boys liking and commenting on your pictures.
You’re 22, young and girlish, I know you’ve interacted with boys. By now you may lie yourself that they’re genuine ones. Most of them just want to be seen walking around with a pretty girl and even more of them want to touch your blooming breasts and get inside your pants. If you decide to let them, that’s entirely up to you but remember that choices have consequences. Those boys are not emotionally prepared to handle responsibility, they know nothing serious matters. A lot if not all of them are still getting living allowances from their parents. They’ll tell you they’re grown-up men because they have hair growing around their chins but they’re far from that because being a man is not about sagging your trousers to the point where your draws are seen.
As I finish this, it’s gravely silent now and I’m tired, worn out even because this like any other piece of my writing it takes a lot of my emotional energy out of me. I want to turn in and rest but as I sign this letter off if you don’t take anything from this letter at least recognize this don’t accept the limits people put on you. Don’t be in a hurry to grow old. Try and find something you truly love and give it all you’ve got.
