Dear younger self,
You are beautiful and unique. Many people may not understand who you are but God does. It is okay that you don’t have things figured out right now but God has a plan for your life. Shalee’, smile because it brightens peoples day. You have been given a voice to speak so don’t be afraid to tell your story to the nation. You will inspire many people. You don’t have to keep drinking on the weekends to fit into this world. Do you know that you are talented and one of kind? You have been wonderfully and fearfully made. When you look into the mirror embrace yourself and do not talk down on yourself by saying you are ugly. I know you are struggling with feeling loved but God loves you with unfailing love. Put the bottle down of wine and cast all your cares unto your Abba father. There is no need to cry yourself to sleep because God is there to wipe away all of your tears. You are worthy and can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens you.
Your older Self, Shalee’
