Dear younger me:

I
miss
you...
Simple, I know...but this has been my heart's lament for many years. :/ I'm pretty sure everyone wants to be young again sometime.

Written for this week's prompt in #SixWordStories: Write a letter to your younger/older self.

I think we all know that feeling.
I love the simplicity of it too, because it leaves it open to the reader for what part about it that we miss!

Interesting...

I feel as if this could be referring to many things. Perhaps you miss the very embodiment of youth there, or maybe you miss the innocence (which would be the classic thing, I think) but.. you've left it quite open in terms of what you've missed there. 'you' is awfully vague, anyway.

The ellipses is great, but I wouldn't have minded more depth into what you are missing specifically.

Yeah, I miss a lot of things so I wanted to keep it broad. There's so much from that time that I wouldn't mind going back to and doing, as a younger me... you know?

I understand. Thank you for your help. :)

Yeah, I know what you mean. There is definitely something about it. :nod:

Like you said, the innocence is definitely one thing. But the most important thing that I wish I could go back to is less worrying. I was so carefree back then, I could just go outside and do whatever without worrying what other people thought, and I didn't worry too much about school either. It was really something. :')

Ah.. yes, that's a fair point. I can see what you mean there.

Then again, with worrying comes advantages that you may not have fully appreciated when you were younger?

Worrying about what I must do motivates me to get it done, however... There's nothing gratifying about it. It's just another thing, another assignment, another project... The worrying I put in alongside the work is never over. Sure, it may have helped me a couple times. But then something else always comes in to ruin what could have been a relinquished worry, and the stressful cycle continues.
</rant> Sorry.

I guess I still can't fully appreciate what worrying has done for me. ._.

Hmm...

That doesn't sound too good. =/

Have you found a way to deal with that, though? I mean it is sort of like life to shit on you in such a way, but then there are ways to prepare or bounce off of it or something?

It's a win-lose sort of situation?

It's not the greatest thing in the world, but the only thing I can really do about it is to keep moving forward. Even if it's shit. I'll stop worrying eventually.

I guess you could say that, yeah.
