Linda’s Future View

Dear Future Linda,


I hope you are more mature and focused on life. But still your true self and not becoming someone you don’t want to be. Let’s get one thing straight, we both know you are still going to be the same sensitive, doubtful, creative person. I just hope you are doing what you love and taking care of your parents and making them proud. I feel like my future self (you) isn’t going to go to college or achieve something great because we know how much we talk negatively about ourselves but we don’t need to talk about that. We both think that we aren’t smart enough, and go through the part where we say in our minds “ oh we’re not smart, your too dumb, that’s why you can’t do anything, etc. Regardless, it still happens but we’ll make it through. I hope you live your life to the fullest and not crying or stressing over anything. Maybe you are in college or traveling or working with your parents. Let’s both be honest, life is not easy. It’s hard at times but not everything has to be perfect. So what if you stress a lot and probably have depression or anxiety at some point people have hard times. We don’t talk about our feelings, that’s where we were both stuck and struggling with. Let’s both hope we succeed in life and aren’t regretting anything we both know you’ve done. I’m still not sure what you want to do in life. Like where you’re going to go to college? If you’re going to go to college? Or what college is best for you? I want you to go but I’m not sure what classes you should take, but I also want to travel and find you. I do know what I want my future to look like, like how many kids I want, where I want to live, what dog I want, and other things. I want to live in a house with my family, and possibly be married and maybe two or three kids, with a Labrador/husky mixed dog. Also I just want you to get better at lacrosse and become more confident. I just want you to be happy, for you to be proud of yourself and not doubt yourself. I want you to feel like you can do anything and be free. Like honestly you can be that better part of yourself, feel like you have so much to do and not be told what to do, but only by your parents obviously. So you need to consider just letting go and be that person and probably talk to someone and feel like you’re broken. Be happy. Be free. Feel like you can love yourself again because at the end of the day you can do so much with yourself.
