Letters to Self: If You Only Knew

Letters to Self is a Self-help series written by M. J. Joachim, designed to encourage and promote healing and self-awareness for those who read it.


Dear Self,

If you only knew how much you mean to the people who truly matter in your life. You are a shining star - even the smallest stars shine brightly, especially in the darkest of skies.

Your gift of self for the world cannot be dimmed by the challenge from those around you. You were meant to be, and you were born for a reason. It is obscene to think otherwise, and much worse to believe these thoughts that surely weigh you down.

As much as you try to shield yourself from the past, you must will yourself to move forward, focusing on the life you were meant to live, the person you are meant to give to this world. Only you can carve the path, making a difference for yourself and others as you travel on your way.

Only you can know the person who is inside, giving full credit where credit is due, accepting responsibility when you fall short and ordering your life in a way that makes a positive difference in our world.

Love,

Self
