To My 20-Year-Old Self

Don’t worry so much.

You’re smart and you’re beautiful.

You are.

 

Don’t work so much.

You’ll have enough to live.

You will.

 

Don’t eat so much.

It won’t fill that emptiness you feel.

It won’t.

 

Trust your instincts.

That quiet, still voice inside you will guide you.

It will.

 

Listen to your elders and those who love you,

Even if it seems like they don’t understand or care.

They do.

 

Read and pray more.

Ideas and faith will fill your soul with everything you need.

They will.

 

Love with abandon.

It’s all that really matters.

It is.
