Letter ~ To 15-year-old you

Dear you who are reading this letter:

I wonder where you are and what you’re doing.

15-year-old me has worries that I can’t talk to anyone else about.

If I write this letter to my future self, surely I will be able to honestly and openly express myself.

Whose words should I believe now, when I’m on the edge of losing, on the brink of tears, and on the verge of disappearing? When this heart that I only have one of is constantly being broken to pieces? When I’m living through these difficult years?

Dear 15-year-old you, thank you for you letter. I have some things that I’d like to say to you.

If you keep asking yourself “in which direction should I head?” the answer will come to you

The rough seas of adolescence are harsh, but the ship of your dreams will continue to the riverbank of tomorrow

And when you don’t want to lose, to cry, when you don’t want to disappear, believe in your own voice. And even the adult me has times when I get hurt, even has sleepless nights, but life is bittersweet.

There is meaning to the entirety of one’s life, so follow your dreams without unease; keep on believing.

Whose words should I believe now, when I’m on the edge of losing, on the brink of tears, and on the verge of disappearing? When you don’t want to lose, to cry, when you don’t want to disappear, believe in your own voice. And whatever your age, sorrow can’t always be avoided, but I now try to live my life showing my smiling face.

Dear you who are reading this letter,
I wish good things for you.

Touching isn’t it? So was I when I first listened to it.

For that 15 year old me..even if its 10 years later or next 20 years

I hope that i will find the answer to the questions I was looking for

So far..

I have found some answers

such as…..how will I look when I am in my 20’s

not much change like I look like 10 years ago hahaha

So perhaps later in the future I will find more

After all I will always have a lot of question for the rest of my life

=P
