American actor, playwright, filmmaker, and comedian Tyler Perry celebrated his golden jubilee some days ago, and wrote an inspiring note to his five-year-old self, thanking him for surviving and allowing him become the man he is today.
Sharing a side-by-side photo of his 5 year old self and a recent photo on his Instagram page, he wrote:
Dear 5 year old me,
May I just say, “Thank you” to the little boy that I was. Thank you for all you went through to allow me to be the man I am today. I love you, and I am so thankful to God that you survived. Even when I didn’t want to, your pureness and innocence ushered me here. Thank you for these 50 years. I love you. We made it.
What would you say to your younger self? This is just one paragraph of many pages that I’ve written to my younger self over the years.
I often tell friends to write a letter to their younger self. I promise you, it will change your life.
If you can get through it, you should try it. It can be so healing.
