Letter to My Present Self

Dear Present Self,

You are in a pretty good place right now.  Sure, you still have your worries, but who doesn't?  When it really comes down to it, your life is not looking very bad.

You have found someone wonderful who loves you for who you are.  That may sound cliche, but it's the truth.  He is your best friend, and the soulmate you have always desired.  He understands all of the quirks about you and your life that you feared no one ever could.  He is worth all the physical, mental, and emotional battles you have ever fought in your lifetime.

As for college, it started off quite well for you.  Don't you think?  There have been a couple of setbacks and discoveries you  made along the way, but that happens to the best of us.  If nothing else, you have made wonderful friends!  You fit in with them quicker than with any other "clique" you were friends with before.  They seem to really get you, and you hope some of the friendships that you have obtained this year will last for the rest of your life.

Overall, you have had a rather fabulous life thus far.  I know you will continue to do well, as long as you do not compromise your morals or values for anyone.  You have tried that in the past, and it didn't work, so obviously you should not try it again.  It will only bring you down, and I know you can do better than that.  Keep up the good work, and always be compassionate and caring of others, as you always have been.
