To my future self, I hope that time has been kind to you. I hope your high school experience was what you hoped it would be, and I hope you lived it up in college. I can’t sit here and say I know what growing up was like, because I don’t. I also can’t say that from what my parents have told me that it was easy.
But what I do know, is that you made it through. You’re reading this letter because you made it to the other side. So congratulations, you did it!
No matter what life throws at you, always remember that you’re strong and capable of anything. Never give up on yourself, because I know that you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
I’m so proud of the person you’ve become, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you. Congratulations again, and I hope that life has been good to you.
I’m sure you had ambitious goals in life and wanted to reach for the sky, and I’m certain that you haven’t achieved it. I hope you are where you want to be right now and if not, don’t give up; keep pushing. Remember that your happiness is solely under your control.
No one else. High school was tough, and there were times I wanted to give up, but I’m glad I didn’t. It made me who I am today. So whatever you do, don’t give up on your dreams, no matter how hard it gets. You can do it! And always believe in yourself because if you don’t, no one will.
If you’re reading this for yourself, congratulations! Whether it’s the ginger you wasted your eighth, freshman, and sophomore years pining after, or someone new, I hope they give their all to you. Because that is all you deserve. Hopefully you’ve achieved the profession you desired since sophomore year, when you were interested in pharmaceutical work; who knows where you’ll be now but hopefully more decisive than then.
I hope your happy with who you have become, and I also hope that you found a way to balance out work and play, because in high school its so easy to get caught up in the former. And finally I hope that this letter finds you well, both physically and mentally.
You dreamed of becoming huge as a child. You never liked settling for ordinary. When you got a B+ on your report card in 4th grade, you wept because it was the first time you’d ever achieved that mark. Those were the greatest times of your life, but you’ve undoubtedly had many more adventures throughout the timeframe covered by this letter. At one point, you wanted to be a model and loved when dad painted your nails and dressed up with you so he could do his hair for you.
High school was a tough time for you. You had your heartbroken, you didn’t fit in with any group of friends, and you felt like an outcast. The one good thing that came out of high school was your boyfriend at the time. He made all the pain go away and he showed you what it meant to be loved. But as with most things in life, that didn’t last forever.
You’ve moved on from high school now and you’re doing big things. You’re making a difference in the world and you’re following your dreams. You’re finally happy and you’ve never been more content with your life. Everything happens for a reason and everything that’s happened to you has made you into the strong, independent woman you are today.
You have an amazing group of friends who love and support you unconditionally. You’ve found your soulmate and you couldn’t be happier. You’re doing what you love and you’re making a difference in the world. You’ve finally found your place in this world and you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.
Never forget where you came from and always stay true to yourself. Don’t let anyone or anything bring you down. Believe in yourself and always follow your dreams. No matter what life throws at you, never give up and never give in. You’re a fighter and you’re stronger than you think.
So, keep up the good work. Keep being the amazing woman you are and never stop dreaming. The sky is the limit and you can do anything you set your mind to.
You pouted when you didn’t get your way, and your parents still tell you how aggravating you were as a sophomore, despite the fact that they probably do not remember. From childhood aspirations to goals you had when growing up differently, high school was a transition for you in many ways. Surprisingly, high school was more of a change for you than transferring from a catholic school to a public one during 7th grade. Despite always putting out 100 percent effort in class, high school held significance.
You would go home and do homework until you felt your eyes bleed, and still studied. You became a voracious reader, pouring through books like they were water and you were a sponge in a drought. High school was the time where things started to happen for you. Your writing improved drastically, as well as your grammar. You made new friends easily enough, but it took a while before you truly let anyone in.
The friends you did have though, were amazing and worth keeping till the end of time. High school was also the time when boys started to take an interest in you. They would ask you out on dates, which more often then not, you said no to because that’s not what you wanted your teenage years to be about. You wanted to focus on school and your future.
And that’s what you did. You kept your head down, even when it felt like the world was against you and everything was tumbling down. You got through high school, and you graduated with honors. Your parents are so proud of you, as they should be. They didn’t give up on you, even when you were giving them attitude day in and day out. High school made you grow up a lot, and realize what was truly important in life.
