An Open Letter to My Unborn yet Daughter

Dear Future Daughter, 

Your mom lived a not easy life and wants you to live a better one than hers.  I will give you the lessons learned from my mistakes to avoid it. I understand that you will want to have your own experiences and identity but let me tell you the lessons I learned maybe it could help you out.

  • You are a beauty darling, never allow anyone (boy or girl) make you feel ugly; or ask you to change who you are. And if you find those people around you leave them, they don’t deserve your time.
  • Love and care for people around you. Always keep in mind that what you give will be returned to you. So always be a giver.
  • Never allow anyone to take you for granted, give them because you want to, not because you are obliged to.
  • Always choose to be a good person. Being kind is easy but remaining kind is not. So always choose to be kind, life is a choice.
  • Know your passion and work on it. I want to see the sparkle in your eyes and the passion of loving something wakes you up every day to work on it.
  • Take risks and learn from the consequences.
  • Yes you can have a boyfriend, I accept it. And yes you have to go through relations and heartbreaks. Those experiences will hurt you but will make you stronger and will help you to realize who you want to be.
  • Don’t be rushed to get old, Have fun baby and enjoy every single stage of your life. Take a lot of pictures, and always remember life is about the journey not the destiny.
  • I don’t care what grades you get as long as you pass your exams. I want you to be smart, sociable and have interests. I have grown up and realized that my colleagues with the highest grades are not successful in their careers and desperate in their social life. So I want you to be a hard worker and achieve more in your practical life not to learn everything by the book.
  • Always look good and take care. Wear whatever you want but in the right places. Remember every place has its own suitable clothes.
  • Never allow a guy to use you mentally, emotionally or physically. You will find a lot of guys out there who just want to have fun and they will never be serious about it; don’t get attached to them and don’t get involved deeply. Always put in mind they are just playing games.
  • Don’t marry a guy just for the idea of getting married. Marry the guy you want to spend your life and share every single detail of your life with him. Don’t rush marriage take all the time you want to decide whether he is the one or not. If you don’t feel like you want to get married it’s OK, I will support you and I will always be proud of you. Marriage doesn’t mean success; it’s a normal step in people’s life. Do it only when you feel like able to take this responsibility and found the oneEveryone gets married but not everyone is happy or successful.
  • You have to learn to say “No”. No for the people coming on your nerves, for the things you don’t want to do, the uncomfortable situations, and for the plans you don’t want to be part of. Don’t be shy just say No and don’t frustrate yourself.
  • I will always have your back and you will never be alone. I am there whenever you want me and will never give up on you.
  • I want you to find your own identity, leave a legacy and realize who you are.

Your Mum Loves You before Even Seeing You

Sincerely,

Your Future Mum

To All the People Who Left, I Forgive you

Published

on

By

To the people who promised never to leave, but did anyway, I forgive you. I can say so now, because I have finally reached the conclusion that it wasn’t my fault but merely your choice. And who am I to stand against this, yes, I might be the daughter, the best friend, the girlfriend, but I still have no say when it comes to this, when your choice is leaving, mine must be to let go.

I didn’t fully recover, I simply coped with your absence. I kept on coping, till I no longer think of you when I’m upset and in need for someone to talk to. I learned to shift my needs towards my own self, I soothe my own soul and I tell myself to not give up to the pain.

I miss hearing it from you though, I miss the security that girls often feel from their fathers, the care they get from their partners and the joy that a best friend gives, but I taught myself that I can live without feeling those emotions.

I would also like to thank you, because even though your absence should have toughened my heart, it actually made it softer. I now have a soft spot for those who suffer alone and in silence. I have learned from your own mistakes and now I know how to deal with a scarred heart.

Your absence surely left a void, one that can hardly be contained by the presence of anyone else. But I’m learning that when someone tries to fill your shoes, I should let them. It won’t be the same, but it is worth the try.

So to the father who left, I know you must be hurting too, but don’t. Because you eventually raised a strong kid.

To the best friend who left, no one can possibly replace you, but one who would never leave, is a worthier one.

And to the partner who left, it’s hard to walk this journey of life alone, but it surely ain’t impossible.
