Dear younger self,
Where do I start? You will go through many trials and tribulations in the future but don't fear. They will be life altering, but in good ways too.
It will be hard to comprehend and adapt to at first, but you will. You will learn to be grateful for the little things that others take for granted, like getting out of bed, being at home, spending time with family, eating, breathing, walking and every little smile and sound of laughter.
Remember, everything happens for a reason and you will find yours. Your battle will help others, you will be stronger because of it, more empathetic, kinder to others and not to just judge a book by its cover.
Most of all, it will make you a better doctor. Never give up on your dreams for you can achieve anything you put your mind to. With love, Your future self
