Letter to My Younger Self

Dear Me, so bright eyed and bushy tailed.

Wild child, who can’t sit still, full of joy bouncing off the walls. Yes you are strange, but please don’t fear your uniqueness. Be you, don’t grow bitter.Stay strange and amazing.

You have so much potential. Yes, your mother is right you are smart. Stop believing when people tell you otherwise.

It’s okay that you don’t need people. That makes you independent NOT defective. You are not cold and robotic you are calm and logical. Yes you do things differently but some day this will be your strength.

The people who picked on you never made it far in life. It was them not you who had the problem. Bullies are insecure and often suffer on the inside, lashing out to make themselves feel bigger. Don’t be like them. Stay kind.

Silly girl, who talks to the animals and trees. Never stop. Don’t worry about what other people think of you. You are perfect just the way you are.

 

With deepest love,

-Me

  1. P.S. Oh, and be sure to save yourself for a blogger named something-or-other-fig instead of marrying that other guy. Don’t worry what “blogging” is, it doesn’t hurt and it’s easier than talking.

  2. Diversity is our strength. We do not have to walk lock step. Unique approaches bring us marvelous fruit we may all share. What may seem our shortcoming as a child may well contribute to our strength later in life. Keep speaking up for all of us. Thank you.

  3. I’m not sure how long wordpress has been going for so don’t know if your younger self will receive this. Doh!
    What a great love song to your younger self. How much more advanced we’d be as a species if we could only learn to see in hindsight.

  4. My mum, God rest her, spoke to our dog as well as cattle on our leased land. Perhaps I am used to this. 🙂 (I remember Garfield saying, “Sorry, Tree! Not climbing you today!” in an episode of ‘Garfield and Friends’)

  5. My little brother, 9, has aspergers. He is at the lower end of the spectrum but we are finding it hard at the moment. He’s at that age where we need to find him a secondary school but we can’t find one he fits within. He’s doesn’t fit in a special needs specific school, yet mainstream is hard for him and he has no friends.
    Would love any advice or guidance to pass on to my mum, as she struggles with it the most. As I guess you can imagine, he doesn’t care. He is happy in his little bubble.

    1. ASD kids want to feel normal but need help. Maybe an in-school aid in the main stream school? I don’t have kids and it has been YEARS since I was in school. Wish I had more answers. Encourage him to grow the areas he has passion for they are his gifts.

      1. This is what he has now and is an option we are considering. I know my mums hoping to visit somewhere and feel that’s where he belongs. Thanks for your comments. Looking forward to read more from you!

  7. I really love this post. Whenever I do something wrong I often wish that I could go back in time and tell myself don’t do it that way, but this post went the other way and I love it because of that. This post inspires hope in me.
