Dear past self, one month after:
By now, you have already discovered the sad truth, that Dad’s not coming back. Do not despair, though. In the coming time, you will feel like it, but don’t worry. You have friends. You are not alone.
You will have chances to get out of the house, out of the state. Take them. Enjoy the sabbaticals. The idiots back home will try to drag you back, though. Dig in your heels as long as possible. And when they do take you home, enjoy the trip back. You’ll find a lot of amazing sights.
You will find something that will soon take up your time and your creativity. Use it to the best of your advantage.
You’ll try to get back on the swing of things. You’ll fall a few times, but don’t let it bother you. Your friends on mIRC and the forums will help you out as much as possible.
Right now, I’m sure you’ll feel that things are falling down. Let’s be blunt: They are. Mom’s going to get more dependent on you, despite your best efforts. You’ll find that peace and quiet are not going to be there. You will get tired of what everyone is asking you do. Vent. Get mad. It is your life, and let no one tell you otherwise
I wish I could be there. I wish I could give you a hug, maybe hang out with you. Then and now, we still need hugs. *lol* I’m leaving so much out, and for good reason. If we knew the future, we’d want to change it, and thus cause loads of trouble.
Remember that life and love are flip sides of the same side.
Hold true to your ideals.
Until we meet again,
Your future self
