Dear Erin. is something I came up with when I was lazing around dreaming of everything under the sky. You know, we all have that moment where you sit, gaze into space and let your brain wonder to catch whatever ideas there are in the air?Dear Erin,
Sometime in your life , you're going to be forced into adulthood.
You're going to have to find a job, a car, a place to stay & pay your own bills.
And when that happens, you'll start to question your entire being.
You'll freak out a little more everyday as that day comes closer.
Some days you'll feel alone and empty. Some days you won't even know who you are anymore.
Other days, you'll just want to sleep in and forget the world.
Who am I? What do I have to contribute to anyone? What do I want? What are my passions?
These are just a few of the questions that would creep into your mind every time your thoughts linger.
And it is going to be so tiring.
Sometimes these thoughts would haunt you for days, weeks and months.
But persevere on Erin. Do not lose hope.
I need you to know that what you're going through is normal.
No one has their life together when they first start out.
Life is an adventure and if you knew the answers to everything, it would be no fun.
At the end of the day what really matters is your core.
Find something that touches your heart and engages your soul.
It might not be the direct answer to your questions, but at least you'll know who you are.
Cry if you have to. Scream if you have to.
Spend an entire week alone in your room if you have to.
But the most important thing is that you do not lie to yourself.
Whatever you're feeling, embrace it and work towards it.
Do not be afraid.
You're a fighter, and fighters don't quit.
You'll get through this and no matter what,
I'll always be proud of you.
