Dear Future Me,
I bet you weren't expecting a letter from your past self, were you?
Well, you probably were, considering we're the same person and
you'd have to know I was writing you a letter since you wrote it in the
past so I guess you know already what's in this letter, right? Do I even
need to write it? If I don't write it… will that set off a chain of events
that lead to the you who won't read this being someone completely different!?
I've watched 'Back to the Future' far too many times.
Well, I'm going to write it. I guess I can't offer you infinite insight
about your future since I'm writing forward as opposed to back, and

Breathe. You must be thinking, seriously, my teen self is acting like an old fart of a teacher telling off overstressed kids, but seriously, breathe. Stop. Pause. Listen. It's your heart beating. It's telling you, I'm beating so damn hard, I might just kill you one day.
Okay, let's digest. There can only be two reasons for your heart to beat like that. One reason is because I wouldn't have changed- I would still be that overzealous, neurotic, depressed teenager with a penchant for word thieves, dream catchers and moment makers. The other reason would be just the opposite: it's beating with life, with purpose, with hope.
I hope you'll be that second person.
Because being that second person means being serenaded by Chopin in a boy's car, travelling down to Bondi Beach watching sculptures rear out of the sea and you're feeling like, maybe, love may finally find you at last. Being that second person means you just won't shut up talking to patrons

I worry about you sometimes.
I worry about how you are doing: who you are spending your time frolicking with, whether or not you have finally kissed someone, if you still get nervous easily. I worry about my friends in your time – are they still our friends? Or have you finally let them all go, or pushed them away, or left like we always dreamed of?
Sometimes I lay in bed in the late hours of the night, dreaming of your life. Do you remember? Do you remember staring at the dark ceiling so long it began turning red, tossing and turning, hoping and dreading what is to come? I wonder if the things I have don

I'm tucking this letter safely inside your favorite copy of 'The Dragonlance Series', where I'm sure you're going to find it. Page 241--your page. This book should be worn and weathered by now. I say 'should', because I'm frantically hoping that you're still reading it; because people change and you--we--are no exception.
So, dear future self, it's definitely been a while since I last thought of you. The truth is, I'm afraid to. All those hopeless and overly irrelevant dreams I have right now are probably just a fade memory in your mind. Some of them you probably accomplished. Some others you probably don't even remember; no

Dear Future Self,
Hey, you. Or, alternatively, me. I've never spoken to you before, but I think it's time I did, not for a contest or views but because I know better than anyone that you need it right now.
I know you're hurting and you're scared. I know how you can't look in the mirror without clawing away at yourself and I know you write this with shaking hands and a heavy heart, but this isn't just about you. This is about the little girl you used to be and the little girl out there that's exactly as you were. Because they need you. I need you. Please stop crying each night, this will make you stronger. I know it's hard. I know you don't

Did you succeed in all those crazy plans you made? Every day I look at my to-do list and just say to myself "Not today." But what about you? Did you get off your lazy butt and actually do those things listed? Did you write those countless stories, play all of those amazing games, learn all the knowledge to satisfy you, listen to every song on those lists received, read every book suggested, and all the while still manage to do the chores at home and hang out with every friend?
There's so much I want to ask you, but there's nothing you can say. I want to know if the life I've made now will be the life I have forever. Some days

You, with the bleu Sharpie pen.
Those ripped leggings are hugging your bones like another layer of skin. Werent you maintaining your weight? Oh, thats right. I remember now. You were spending some more time in that day hospital program. Philhaven. The depression had come back in a rush. It was overwhelming; a tide of uncertainty and anxiety, complete with a bow laced with self-loathing. It was wrapped around you like gauze and medical tape, all melted together as one hard cast. All that weight, Love, and you crashed. You fell under a suffocating blanket of hatred and were constantly shrouded by ribbons of past mi

Am I still as awkward as I am/was at 16…finally on the cusp of 17? I think I would be since, after all, people can’t change that much.
Oh, what about my relationship with Z, how did that go? It’s alright if you can’t spare the details, I don’t think I want them anyway. Everything always seems better with a surprise.
How did college go? Did I ever find the chance to explore New York the way I wanted, what about my job? Have I risen to the top the way I dream? Oh…can I finally draw? God, I hope so!
Enough questions, I’m sure I still plague myself with them day in and day out, I don&

Yes I'm looking at you.
I know it's strange to see that weird girl with the black t-shirt and jeans, both too big for her, staring at you from across a crowded train station, her purple hair standing out miles away.
Think about it though. Don't you remember that tee? The one with the TARDIS and how you yelled in happiness when it came in the mail and jumped around the kitchen counter for a few minutes?
Do you remember me?
Do you remember that grin? The one that you spent a few hours in front of the mirror perfecting when you were 13? The one that you're positive still looks ugly? Does anyone like that grin now? Is there someone

This is a letter for my future self, my adult self, maybe at 40-45 years old or more :3
If you are not her, don't read that!
First of all! How are you, dear?
I want to ask you some of the questions that are being VERY annoying in my head so I can finally take them out (please, use a time machine to return this letter as soon as posible!):
Did you publish a book or a comic?Did you became an informatic engineer, a freelance illustrator, an hotel director or a marketing gurl?Did you finally found HIM? (yes, HIM, ya know)Where are you living? (please don't tell me you're still living in the same place as now I live!)
Ah! How many questions! But basically these four are the most important of them
I hope you didn't throw away this letter thinking it all was a bad joke... (becaue it isn't!). I will show you: your first cat was called Benito, wasn't him? Weeeeell, now that you don't have doubts about how I am, I shall continue with some a

i hope that you're still around to read this. because i know that you've - well, we've - considered calling it quits before this. and i'm sure we've considered calling it quits since. maybe you were considering calling quits just before you stumbled upon this letter, tucked away in the shoe box full of birthday cards and photos of friends long since forgotten that you keep beneath your bed. if you ever feel like calling it quits, just remember: nobody remembers a quitter. keep soldiering on.

Dearest Adult Self,
I hope you’re still around to read this.
Life didn’t treat you all that great while you were in school. I know, I know, it’s all about the education. And I hope you learned a lot while you were in school. Especially high school. But, the people you learned with were not the nicest people.
That being said, you probably know what saved your life. I hope you still have that old thing. You started it when you were fourteen, and a day did not pass that you were not on it. You probably know what I’m talking about, right? Well, if not, let this refresh your memory.
Blogging. Fangirling. The works.

First off, I hate you.
I HATE you.
You are despicable and you are vile. I wish you nothing but the anguish of nightmares and sad, sleepless nights. I hate you for what you've done, and I hate you for all the reasons why you've done it. I hate you for being so stupid as to thinking that building a wall would keep out the sadness. Because guess what? It didn't.
I hate you.
I hate YOU who crushed my dreams, and turned my skies from blue to gray. It was you who convinced me that daydreams were just a sad, pathetic excuse to escape reality, and ever since then, I

I really hope you're not staring down that same gun barrel, wondering why nothing much has changed for yourself.
Do you miss the girl you once were? You do, don't you? You used to be that girl who skipped down the halls a bit too carefree for the likes of the normal people. You sang in languages no one knew and danced to songs you probably shouldn't have, but hey: life was good.
I wish I could know for sure what life is like for you now, but since I cant, let's make a checklist, shall we?

Dear adult me,
What are you like? I hope that you haven't strayed from the path I planned since I was 10. All my life, I have made sure things happen just the way I like it.
Were you able to fix your mistakes that I foolishly could not?
Are you still afraid of what may happen next?
Do you live with no regrets?
I am terrified of losing my friends, falling in love, getting hurt, I wish that time could slow down so that all the stress and pain that is yet to come would be on 'hold' for a while. I have many regrets that you know of, being bullied, bullying others, lying, cheating, swearing. Is there a hope for th
Hello Future SelfNov 11, 2012Hello Future Self6 months ago in Teen More Like This
Why hello there,
Yeah, you. You saw this little contest on your art website way back in ye-ol’ 2012 and thought something (exactly) along the lines of “Oh, hey, this could be fun.” And considering that during that point in time you were into sentimental and introspective stuff like that, you figured that—even though you had no hope of winning the darned thing—it might be something really fun to do. So you took a break from the angsty piece you were writing at the time and continued blowing off your fanfiction, started blasting the Ellie Goulding remixes and wrote this in one afternoon.
At this point you’ve actually sent a couple of letters to yourself via email, and those are entertaining. I still look at them sometimes when I want to remind myself of what I was like last year, and I hope that you’ve held onto them, so you can see what you were like when you were an angsty little kid back in high school. I really hope you’ve
