3 THINGS I WANT MY FUTURE SELF TO KNOW

3 things I want my future self to know- Teresa Gueco



We’ve seen and heard other people’s thought about what they have to say to their younger self that are mostly about the lessons they’ve learned. There is nothing wrong with that but what about your future self?

We often look back and wish things, and in the process we forgot to look forward and utter words of encouragement to our future self. So now, in this post we’ll celebrate life and future.

PEOPLE WILL NOT FULLY UNDERSTAND YOU- AND THEY DON’T HAVE TO.

I think being understood by the society and the people will be a forever issue to us. Our younger self suffered that, I am suffering, and I am sure that you will face this as well.

You have to understand that people believe what they want to believe and that is not on you and should not have an effect on you. Sure, it can affect you but you have to do something for it to not have an effect on you. Be affected but don’t let it have an effect in your life. Being affected is as humane as to breathe but letting it have an effect on you is something you have a control of.

We are unique individuals and we still don’t get other people as well, but all you have to do is to respect them. Respect that your views and opinions are not the same but that doesn’t mean that the other is less or better than the other one. Respect begets respect.


YOU ARE IN PAIN, BUT WHO IS NOT?

Living the life now made me realize a lot of things and one of them is that everyone is hurting. Growing up, and even until now, we tend to be sorry for us for being in a bad situation and we tend to make it bigger than it is.

I cannot blame you for I know that being in pain hurts a lot. Your mind messes you and you feel like the world is conspiring against you. Most of the time it feels like you are alone, but you are not. You are not alone…and you are not the only one hurting.

This is not about invalidating your emotions or saying that you can’t feel sorry for yourself. This is about being kind to other people and trying to live a peaceful life.

Be kind and know that a lot of people are suffering and you don’t know half of their stories. Pain is a natural emotion that I hope no one feels intensely and so you don’t get to pass it on to someone else.

Sometime when we are hurt and in pain we forget how to be kind and we unconsciously pass the hate on.

You can be mad, you can get angry, you can get hurt, but try not to pass it on.


REAL LIFE IS BETTER THAN REEL LIFE

I don’t know if this is still applicable in the next 10-15 years but right now it is and I want to point this out.

Reel life is different from real life.

A recent study (or is it a research) says that Vlogging is becoming a soft skill that people are raving about. Even kids wanted to be vloggers (also known as Youtubers) when they grow up. Yes, there’s nothing wrong with it and it pays well while doing whatever you want.

But reel life is not everything. There is still a life outside that screen monitor, feed goals IG, high following FB pages, and verified Twitter account.

I hope you find happiness and entertainment in the reel life but I really hope that you still know that real life is much more important than reel. I hope it helps you get creative. I hope you can guard yourself from ideal things that reel life imposes. I hope you can use reel life to promote bigger purpose in life.
