Hello you or maybe hello myself,

When I have seen this proposition to write a letter to you and for you, myself, I was disconcerted..

Now I know... I know what I want to tell you and why I’m doing it. It is for you. 

It s true it s always easier to tell you which bad things you have done, which bad behaviours you have had, to tell you that it was not enough or you can't do it... But it s wrong! My lack of confidence on you push me to denigrate myself, to forget my real value.. 

You know, I am glad to be you. You are a beautiful person who always try to listen to your family, friends and unknown people.. your family has taught you respect and it has allowed you to develop your empathy, and you use it when you can.

And, you know, I really like when you are smiling for everything or anything. I like your smile and your joy of living. It is unusual to meet people like you! You are different but we all are different, and I love your difference! 

I just want to tell you something else.. in moving to England from France you begin to learn how you can live for yourself! So do it! I don't want you to be selfish I just want you to be happy! 

Don't forget : I am who you are and you are who I am.
It’s not easy to love ourselves but each day can be a step to improve self love...
