Dear Self, It's Okay

It's okay. It's okay if you're lying on your bed right now, staring blankly at the ceiling, about to cry. I know you're scared. You're scared because you think you're never good enough. You're scared because you see other people your age already doing well and you're not even halfway there. You're scared because you think about what others will say about you. You're scared to end up failing. You're scared, and I understand. But let me tell you this: You'll make it. I swear, you will. So if you feel like crying right now, it's okay, go ahead and cry. It's okay to feel lost. You will eventually find your way out. It's okay if right now you feel like you're not the person you're supposed to be, because I know that you'll figure it out one day. It's okay if you feel like you've let yourself and the people you love down a lot of times already. One day, after all the trials and errors and breakdowns, you'll finally make it. And you'll see that the people who love you never lost their faith in you. Please, right now, as you are -- I am asking you to not give up. Your heart may feel heavy and your mind may have thousands of thoughts inside, but you have to keep going. You have to, no matter how scary and much struggle it may be. I am proud that you found the strength to read this because that means that you're trying to tell yourself that you can do this through all of these words. So if there are times that you feel like you're about to just turn around and give it all up, remember this: You are not a failure. You are on your way.
