Letter To You, DEAR Self

Dear Self,

I saw you super excited and cheerful a few minutes back and I wondered what the reason behind that gleefulness was. I could think of nothing but was reminded of how irritated and restless you were last night.

I wondered what changed over night. Or was it a good night's sleep that calmed your mind. Or may be, there was no problem at all and you were just on a ride of emotional swings.



Whatever it was, I decided to write to you today, to let you know that you make me really proud when you bounce back from your grieves and return to be your cheerful self. You are very DEAR to me and to see you unhappy, ONLY makes me sad and that sadness, like a wicked witch, traps us both. Taking us to the depths of sulks and sobs.

You and I are soul sisters. Drawing comfort from each other. Whether we are happy or sad is in our control. Together we can sail through anything and smile at everything.

Happily bonded forever!
