Day #15 A letter to little me

Dear younger Kylie,

"I come baring words of wisdom from the future.  You are 28 years old now, yes you made it! I will speak to you like only a person who knows your deepest thoughts and feelings can (after all I am you, I know these things pretty well). I must warn you that what I say may be a little confronting but please trust that I only say these things for your own good…

I am so sorry he broke your heart. Who you say? You know who.  You felt invisible, misunderstood and hoped to wake up to find it was all just a bad dream. But life, you see dear girl is not always a fairytale and you don’t always get what you want. There will be times of struggle when the men you eventually date just aren’t him, they don’t even compare. Always in the back of your mind there is longing and despair and also the analyzing of mistakes. But time heals many things and that smile of his (ah his smile…) will fade in your memory along with the hurt you feel buried underneath. Promise ;)

Things sometimes just don’t work out and it has nothing to do with your appearance or any lack on your behalf.  Don’t wear the bad memories down to your soul, don’t allow it to change you or make you afraid of falling in love again. Keep yourself open for the possibility you will feel all these things again (love) and it will be respected, acknowledged and hopefully returned. 


Warm regards,

Older Kylie.

(And...I'm spent).
