Dear 16 year old me!,
After 18 years of travelling ahead, I have no intentions of breaking the surprises that the future world holds for you.I am writing this letter to you because, I think there are a few things you should know, or at least that I wish I had known when I was right in your stage.
You are now in the crucial stage of class XII having nightmares about the competitive world out there judging about your final scores and your future career options. cool!, the world now I face has umpteen numbers of opportunities other than engineering and medical science. Don’t run behind marks, choose your passion- go ahead and do as your heart desires. There is much more in life other than studies.
That said, I would like yourself to get prepared to face disappointments, failures,embarrassments, rejections on instances of love, friendship and practical life as such as you grow up. This may sound ridiculous, but lets face it!
Stop worrying about everything : like where you are going to study, how much will your friends like you, being too thin or being an introvert. Honestly someday everything is going to be cool!. You are definitely going to get into one of the best colleges in town, make amazing friends and memories
Do what’s right for you : have the courage to tell people what you think, no matter what others say.Be flexible on instances when you need/have to and be bold and courageous to face tough times. You’ll definitely be a part of best friends gang you always wanted to be in.
You’ll experience a lot of love and obviously you’ll experience lot of sadness too- but mind you my dear girl, you’ll also witness moments of overwhelming happiness coming along randomly taking you to cloud nine!.You’ll get the love of your life and live the fairy tale ending. You’ll also remain the same in lot of ways, over the years no matter how old you get.
On a final note, You are going to experience not only some amazing memories of education, class, books, friends and family : you will also get to see so much more of what really the world out there is! and who really care for you.
You have a lot in store my dear girl – so be prepared
slightly matured and wiser self!
