Look at you. So sweet and innocent. I know you are shy, unsure of yourself and worried about what the world will bring to you. Here is what I'd like to say, "believe in yourself". No need to go out and find yourself and others can not tell you who you are. You are you. Look inside yourself to see who you are and live in the moment. Because your whole world, as you know it, is about to change. Early in life you will find yourself in circumstances that most people don't have to face or feel until much later in life. Pain and loss, sorrow and grief will come to your doorstep a few times in your youth. You will be angry. You will say “life is unfair,” but life is not unfair or fair. Life just is. Things just happen. They are not because of you and you will have no control over them. You will feel scared and alone, but you are not. You are strong, you will find your way and you don't have to do it all alone. People will come into your life when you least expect it and lead you onto different paths. Some for their own good and some for yours. Trust your intuition. If it feels right, then let them in. This is not being weak, it is being strong. By opening up yourself, you will find who you are. You will experience happiness, joy and love again. It is up to you. You will realize your hardest challenges in life will help you learn and grow the most to become the person you will be. All your experiences in life are a part of you and what makes you. Get to know yourself. The better you know yourself, the better you will be able to choose the life you want and the path to follow. Go after your dreams and you will live them. Learn what you can control in your life - yourself - Your beliefs, your actions and what you do with yourself. Other people and circumstances are beyond your control.
 
Think of life like a ship on the sea. The sea is life and you are in the ship. There will be sunny days, there will be rough weather; there will be other ships and unknown lands to explore. You are the captain of your own ship. Open the sails, take the rudder and steer. Say to yourself "If it's to be, it's up to me".
