LETTER TO DEAR SELF 1.
Dear Self! how I wish you know how special you are.
Your special is so unique that there is no one like you on this planet.
You are beautifully and wonderfully made and endowed with the treasures that eye has not seen, ear has not heard and with the idea that has never come to the mind of anyone.
Haven't you observed that not everybody can do what you can do or know what you know, you an exception among all your peers?
"Only you is you, nobody like you has ever lived, nobody like you is in existence and nobody like you will ever live"
You are fearfully and wonderfully created in the image and likeness of your creator.
You are uniquely formed for a particular purpose.
God intentionally made you for a special assignment that no one can do better than you.
Don't compare yourself with others, because no one in the entire world can do a better job of being you than you.
Always appreciate yourself for whom you are and how God created you.
LETTER TO DEAR SELF 2.
When you were a toddler, you don't know much about your parents.
But as time goes on, you mingle with others and see how they live and how they are parents live and treat them.
You started developing hatred within yourself, for your parents, even for God and started asking so many questions.
Why did God sent you to that parent of yours when they are other parents better than yours or like that your friend's parents?
Why can't your parents work hard like rich parents or as that of your friend's parents or educated?
Why did they got married and gave birth to you when they know they can not cater for you or provide all your needs and wants.
While others eat bread and egg sauce with tea as their breakfast and fried rice with chicken as their lunch, you take pap with beans cake as your breakfast and amala/eba/garri with ewedu as your lunch.
They ride in their father's car while you use your leg or enter a commercial bus or bike.
You hate it when your mates are wearing designers while you are wearing Okrika(second-hand clothes), your mates go to private school but you go to public school.
You ask God why? Do those people have two heads?
Why can't my parents be like them?
Why can't you send me to that rich parents?
Did I offend you? And many more questions.
Dear Self! I know it's very painful but what do you want orphans to do? Even if you see others that have parents like they don't have, you will thank God for your own life.
I just want you to know that you have found yourself in that family whether poor, average, or rich, there is nothing you can do about it.
Born into a poor or average family is not like you offend God or He doesn't like you and it is not a sin but it is a sin to remain in the poor family without change the story.
If you like complain from now till thy kingdom come, it won't change anything but you can recreate the family you find yourself.
"You didn't choose your parents, but you can choose which kind of parent you want to become"
Instead of asking the questions you might not get the answer to and swimming in the pool of hatred and blaming your parents, why can't you think about how to make things better for yourself, your parents, and the next generation?
Define yourself, don't let where you find yourself defines you.
LETTER TO DEAR SELF 3.
Dear Self! Why? Why? because it is paining me the way you are looking down on yourself.
I don't like the way you are overrating others and underrating yourself, the only person you need to overrate is God and respect elders.
Why did you build an idol in your mind that some people are better than you, you believe you can't do what others are doing or you can't achieve what others are achieving.
You need to uproot that idol now and burn it.
Why do you choose to turn yourself into a dust bin where anybody can just come and dump anything they like in it.
Why are you always afraid to defend yourself in front of those looking down on you, oh! I get it, you think they would criticize you, they would say you have bad habits.
Why are you always afraid of what people would say, let me tell you human beings will always be human beings and they would always talk whether you do good or bad.
This is entirely your life not others and you only live once, live your life to please God and yourself.
" You will be the only one to give an account of how you live your life not others"
And have it in mind, there is no limit to what you can do or achieve, whatever you can dream you can achieve it.
