A service has been invented through which you can send messages to people in the future. To whom would you send something, and what would you write?
If I can send a message to the future then surely I can send a message to the past from the future? Because I would send a message to my seven year old self.
My message would say: Hold on tight Honey, things are going to get real ugly real soon. Shit will hit the fan and fly around everywhere, don’t bother trying to duck and weave and hide to keep it off you. You will get shit on, but just remember, this is not your shit, this is someone else’s shit. Keep washing it off, don’t even give it a second to soak in, and most certainly don’t wallow in it! Eventually you will get outside the radius of that particular fan, but there will be other fans spewing shit throughout your whole life, the secret is to recognize the people who only want to spread their shit around and stay the hell away from them.
Stay strong, don’t let other peoples shit change how you feel about yourself, and remember, you are not the shit piled on you, you are the beautiful product of a lifetime of fertilization. Allow yourself to grow.
