In life, we are all seeking somewhat the same thing, and no matter what it is, we can all learn something from each other. If you could write a letter or a note to your younger self what would it say?
This is the truth. Thank you.

“Children have a lesson adults should learn, to not be ashamed of failing, but to get up and try again. Most of us adults are so afraid, so cautious, so ‘safe,’ and therefore so shrinking and rigid and afraid, that it is why so many humans fail. Most middle-aged adults have resigned themselves to failure.”
― Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X
“I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being, first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”
― Malcolm X
“My alma mater was books, a good library…. I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.”

A relationship cannot bring you the things you should be giving yourself: Validation, happiness, self worth, completeness.
Don’t assume, ask. Be kind. Tell the truth. Don’t say anything you can’t stand behind fully. Have integrity. Tell people how you feel." — Warsan Shire
Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized. - Albert Einstein
“Always remember that life is long. In the heat of the moment, what feels super important will likely fade in importance as time goes by. Before you react by yelling, tossing insults or unkind words, remember that “This, too, shall pass”. In fact, recent studies have shown that even the most unhappiest of couples report being very happy five years later. So don’t let one unfortunate incident, difficult argument or challenging moment destroy your lifetime of happiness.”
