A message to my past self

Hi Jade,

I know you are not in the best mindset right now, but I want you to know that things are definitely going to pick up. Please stop worrying.

You would call me crazy if I told you that you move into your own apartment and work three jobs at the same time wouldn’t you? But it’s true!

You become a course rep and a CMI ambassador.

You make so many new friends and rebuild friendships with your old ones.

You travel. Italy, Malta, France, Spain, America… And I’m sure there will be much more to add to that list soon.

You learn how to be alone and be happy on your own. You learn that you don’t need to rely on anyone else for your happiness.

Nan will be okay. You can’t change her disease or make it go away, so just be there for her and let her know you love her. That is all she needs from you.

Please stop putting everyone else first. For once put yourself as the priority and see how much you benefit from it.

Don’t stop listening to music. You hate not having music in your life.

Call Georgia. She misses you too.

Talk to mom! She wants to help you but you don’t tell her what is going on. Let her help you Jade, for goodness’ sake.

You have the ability to do everything you want. Just go for it.
