Ten years has passed and let me just tell you how perplexed I am of you. Let me give you the assurance that you will become a doctor. In fact, you’re already about to enroll on your second year of medschool. There are amazing humans who will finance your medical studies and your family will be very supportive of you.
Right now, I know you are so worried if you will pass UP. You are very anxious, excited, and afraid. You will graduate from your dream school. Your hard work will pay off.
Your parents weren’t able to patch things up but guess what? You gained a family with your stepmom, stepsister, and your little brother. Life will have its fair share of surprises. There’s just so much joy.
You keep on telling yourself that you are a fat and ugly person. You may be a bit on the plus side but a couple of guys really have a big crush on you. They will confess a decade after. So stop telling yourself how horrible you are because you are so beautiful, you just have to learn how to see that.
You also had your share of heartbreak stories, you dated a couple of guys. So stop thinking that you are fat and ugly because believe it or not, you’re quite a catch.
Your siblings will become very close to you. In fact, you will be facing the worst, together. Your Dad will die ten years after. This will be your life’s greatest tragedy. But you will get through it, together.
Ten years from now, you will be really proud of how strong and brave you are. You have travelled abroad alone, worked in different industries, and just transformed into a wonderful person. You are and will be immensely loved.
Your bestfriends now, are your lifetime friends. They will hold your hand in good times and bad. Treasure them and love them.
You will live in eight different places in a span of five years. You will be quite the traveller dear. So brace yourself for the ultimate adventure.
Your mental health will be better. Imagine if you proceeded on ending it all, you wouldn’t have seen the rising. Yes, the sun will rise. Sometimes it hides beneath the darkest clouds but it continues to shine its light on you.
Being related by blood doesn’t equate with family. You will be cutting ties with a few blood relatives which will be beneficial for your sanity. Papa’s death will determine who your real family is. Those people will choose to understand instead of judge. They are not for you and you are not for them, and it’s okay. Your sanity is your top priority.
Remember when you dreamed of living as far away from your hometown as possible? Eat your words honey because you will find that your destiny is to stay in the province. Your purpose will be here.
You will also be a dog mom. Yes, dogs will be your kids. They will make you the happiest. You’ll have Chooey and Skittles. They’re both sweethearts.
You will write more, about your journey, and about the things that helped you become who you are. So when that writing coach of yours told you that you can’t write, guess who’s doing what now.
You will also discover your vocal prowess. Seriously, you can sing, like really sing. You will have sung in hotels and in a luxury dinner cruise. You are quite the talent.
The next ten years will be filled with wonderful memories with Papa. Sometimes you hate him, but ninety percent of the time will be happy. On his last Valentine’s day on Earth, he will take you out on a date. And that’s just one of the millions of things he will do for you that you will never forget.
You will still love people, despite. You will be a witness or a victim in several unfortunate circumstances. But guess what? You thrived still.
I want you to keep on holding on because life still has a lot to offer. I am now giving you an assurance that you’ll be okay. You’ll do great things. You will be a vessel for the ultimate purpose of the universe to manifest.
Good job, Katey.
Your 25 year-old self.
