Day 20: Write a Letter to Your Past Self
Task: Handwrite a letter to your past self. What does your past self need to hear?
Why: Just as the letter from your future self is a potent form of clarifying your compassionate intentions, the letter to your past self is supercharged forgiveness.
Take your time with this exercise. If emotions stir up, that’s completely normal and to be expected. Be kind to yourself (and your past self) as you go through this exercise. If you need to stop, that’s OK and understandable. You’ve been practicing forgiveness, and now you get to put it in practice in the most impactful way: on your childhood self. You’ve got this!
