Dear Past Self.

My new single 'Saint of the Sinners' Out now! Get it HERE! https://listnin.co/SaintOfTheSinners



I've never been able to answer that question of "what advice would you give to your younger self?". I instead, opted for this letter. Though I'm not entirely proud of my past or the person I once was, I wouldn't be who I am today without those mistakes I made. Honestly, I'd probably just go back and give her a hug.



What advice would you give to your past self? Let me know in the comments below........



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Dear past self - thank you for being stubborn.

For not listening to people when they told you

That quitting would be the best thing for you.

Your perseverance is paying off.



Dear past self - thank you for your naivety.

Though not much has changed, and I still trust too quickly,

I know I’ll always come out the other side.

I’m still not jaded - just aware.



Dear past self - thank you for your tears.

Those rivers of emotion I still draw from,

When my well of creative spirit runs dry.

Your pain paints pictures to this day.



Dear past self - you were right.

You can’t love others until you love yourself, but,

We had to learn what unconditionally meant first.



Dear past self - the lighting bolts don't bother us any more,

But I’m sorry you had to hide away for so long.



Dear past self - not everyone cares as much as we do.

Thankfully; because the mental static would be exhausting

And no cups of tea would ever get made.



Dear past self - we’re still misunderstood.

But I think that’s for the best,

Our true colours are a little much for most.



Dear past self - I forgive you.

All the things you thought I’d hate you for,

became valuable pearls of wisdom.

I know now what not to do.



Dear past self - I know things are hard for you,

And you feel like there is no way out.

But I promise it gets better,

and I wouldn’t have known that if it wasn’t for you.
