A letter to myself


Dear 19 years old Bariyah,

Being young was fun. Childhood, teenage years are always playful and wonderful. I remember you had a “stupid” habit of worrying even when there was nothing to be tense about. What pains me is that in all those years you never overcame that stupid habit. Maybe it is because you thought  that worrying is a part of your life and parting with it would be like giving away a part of yourself.

Anyways, I am proud of you. You achieved what I couldn’t imagine at that time. You are stubborn and that is a good thing as you stood firmly. You fought every problem that came your way. You are fighting depression and OCD without going into drugs. Life always teaches its rules the hard way. But there are not many people who learn the rules. You learned them and incorporated them in your life.

If I could meet you , I would say the one thing, ” I am really proud of you buddy”. Despite the ride of ups and downs , you moved on bravely. This is success, believe it or not. You never got admission in medical college but that’s okay because this is life. Remember that quote from the fault in our stars, “This world is not a wish granting factory”. It is very true.

Your battle is half won so don’t give up now.

Lots of love,

13 years old Bariyah
