What I Should Tell My Very Own Self More Often

Everyone is different and special. 

Don't treat them the way you want to be treated, treat them they way THEY want (or need) to be treated.

As everyone is special, so are you. 

There's no need to try hard to fit in. 

Remember what Sara said, 'if one doesn't accept you for who you truly are, means he/she doesn't deserve the special you'. Let go, so you'll make a space for one who does, for you and for them too.

As you understand that some people need some times to be alone to contemplate, to think, to gain inspiration and energy. Realize that you do too. That's okay. Don't make yourself wrong for that. Those who matter won't mind.

It IS important to be honest, but try to be (more) delicate too.

It doesn't mean that you have to sugarcoat things. You just need to remember that being kind is more important than being right. 

And even if it might not seem logical to you, remember that you've learned hard enough how painful trying to be right all the time was.

Keep ones whom you love, but better to keep ones who love you.

While you're busy growing up, your parents are growing old. Never EVER take them for granted. They should always be at your top priority.

Don't find time for ones you love. MAKE time for them.

Schedule your priorities. Make plans.

And when things don't go as planned, be kind to yourself.

EASY TIGER! Don't rush everything (no matter how you like the 'whooshing' sound).

Everything is possible, you just have to find THE way.

Remember that all great things take time. So, be patient.

And whenever you feel down or demotivated, take a deep breath and be grateful in any way. It seems that nothing changes or improves as you live day by day, but take time to look back. Take a look way back and you'll see that nothing is the same. 

Stop comparing yourself with others!!!

No no. It's not motivating, it never is (and you know that). 

It's torturing and you're being unfair both to yourself and to them too (for being compared to you).

Yes, accept that.

Accept the fact that you're not always in control.

People make their own choices, respect that. Don't be judgmental.

Read more. Learn more. Understand more. Laugh more. Have fun!

But when things get tough, cry them out. 

Those who say that big girls don't cry are shams. 

Honor your emotions. Never make yourself wrong for being vulnerable.

Listen to everyone but don't follow them all. Learn from them because everyone (without exception) can teach you something. If they don't teach you what's right/good for you, they'll teach you what's wrong/bad for you. 

Take things as they are. Don't over think. Don't over feel. Don't overcompensate.

It's okay to be scared. It's okay to have fears. It's okay that you're not always getting things right. 

That's normal. That's just so human.

It's okay that you haven't figured all things out just yet. Again, all great things take time.


This may sound cliché to you, but like all clichés, it's true.

Be kind to yourself. Be kind to your very own self.

And when you have done the best you can, let go. 

Let God.

I am blessed to be surrounded by amazing people who have been truly indispensable when I go through the good times, bad times and all else. And I forever thank them for keeping me sane by teaching me all that stuff above. 

Now it's time for me to tell them to myself. A LOT more often.
