We often send metaphorical letters to our past, berating the choices we have made. We regret missed opportunities or past mistakes. It’s easy to blame our young people for the mess we find ourselves in.
What would you say to your future self? And how would you feel reading this letter in a few months or years?
You may find that the crisis or cataclysm you are facing right now has not turned out to be as bad as you feared. Perhaps you would express some optimism that you could turn into action. And maybe you would develop some empathy for your past self, which was doing your best.
