I still feel writing a letter always connects you to the other person, imagine writing a letter to yourself, your past. Yes!! I feel it’s important to write a letter to your past self. We all have happy, sad, memorable, painful, successful past which completes us.
There are my top 5 reasons I feel writing the letter is important:
1. Know yourself better
Writing to yourself, helps you to know more about how you were, what and where you made mistakes or taken up life’s best decision. This is the best way to go back show your empathy, forgiveness and love to your deeds.
It always make you more responsible person and you will get to learn more from your mistakes.
2. Get Closure
As you grow older, you grow wiser and starts understanding life’s decision and matters more nicely. It will give you a chance to go back and give closure to yourself to come out of your open-ended decisions or story of past life.
3. For your Inner peace.
There are so many things which we want to share, but we can’t. The only person who can understand you is only you!! Writing to yourself will bring an inner peace in life.
4. To get clarity.
Now with growing age, now you can connect to other people’s reactions and actions. Our experience teaches us the biggest lessons of life, and we learn to identify others’ behavior and call of action. To get that clarity, it’s important to write.
5. To meet yourself.
It’s you, it’s your past years and they must fill it with so many stories and memories, it’s always good to cherish them, go back and meet yourself and relive those moments again.
How do I write a letter to my past self?
Oh!! Trust me when you will start, it will go in a flow. All you need to remember just a few things before you write:
- Honesty is the key, just be honest otherwise it’s of no use writing.
- Choose an age to write and make sure you stick to that age.
- Make sure you don’t lose the focus, write on one point or two else you will end writing a biography!!
