Dear self,

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen we had a heart-to-heart chat. I know you’ve been through a rough year and there have been many changes. Like the ending of your four year long relationship, graduating from school (though long overdue), the “single” status on Facebook and the searching status in real life, the sudden feeling of loneliness, the protruding fight with depression and incessant unquenchable boredom. You never in your wildest dreams imagined that life would turn out this way but it has. So what you have to do is make the best of it. Love yourself like never before for you only have YOU; Do all those things you love to do; Take time to get to know you again by become your own best friend; Work on making yourself a better you. I know you’re lonely right now and wish you had someone to dance with, hold you close to their heart and whisper “I love you” in your ear, kiss you gently and passionately, make love to you like the first time, touching every part of your body, sing all the love songs that you want to hear, to be loved unconditionally and completely accepted, to know a love with no boundaries, no limits and do all the things true friends and lovers would do. Know that life won’t always be this way, there will come a time when these feelings are distant memories as you will make new ones. Remember to live in the moment and love in the moment. Your best is yet to be seen.

Yours sincerely,

Ayodeji Lancaster
