TDD #11: Dear Younger Me

How many times have you beaten yourself up over something you did wrong? Did you fail to reach your expectations for yourself? Did you make a decision that backfired on you? Maybe certain choices turned out to be a disaster.

If you could talk to a younger version of you, what would you say? Would you give advise to stay away from specific scenarios? Would you let yourself make the same mistakes? Do you think it would make a difference?


“Part of being young is making mistakes.” – Nikki Reed


 

Be kinder to yourself. You are bound to make mistakes. You will fail at certain points in your life. You won’t always have all the answers.

God doesn’t expect you to be perfect. He expects you to love Him with all your heart and soul. As you grow closer to Him, you will learn the discipline it takes to walk along the path that He set for you.

Every mountain, every valley
Thru each heartache you will see
Every moment brings you closer
To who you were meant to be

 

 

Verses about Discipline

Reflection:

Write a letter addressed to a younger version of you.

Start with “Dear Younger Me”

  1. Loved the idea of writing a letter to the Younger Me. Interesting concept and a difficult choice. In looking back I would say that if I had made different or better choices I would not be where I am today and that would be a tragedy because I am so in Love with my wife/Soulmate. So no. I’d not say anything, but if for some reason I could give my younger self I would let them know what stocks to buy! LOL!

  2. It does take valleys to truly appreciate the mountain tops. Some of that you just have to go through, it’s life. But had I had my own advice back then, I wouldn’t have ever let go of myself and my passions trying to be closer to someone else. Now that I’m back, I can say Dear Younger Me… Don’t ever do that. lol
