May - Week 3 - Kindness - Letter to myself
Dear Teen Chris,
I am writing this to you now because I have gotten a 2nd chance to make my life better.
I am you, 3 decades into the future!
Yes, THE YEAR 2020!
I know you are getting ready to turn 20, cause it's our birthday on the 21st.
That's this coming Thursday! - May 21, 2020. I am getting so dam old.
Just forget about 2k, that was 20 years ago! That's long gone for me.
I know you think this is total bullshit, but listen to me and listen good, RIGHT NOW!!
Your, (or my), ok, OUR life will be beyond fucking AWESOME if you just listen to me right now.
Can you imagine knowing the future, which stocks to buy, or which property at what time, etc?
In a few months, you will get the fuck out of the military, I know you hate all the bullshit they have put us through. Just remember it was all worth it. You get some well-needed benefits, that we can't live without. I need to lecture you about school. Get to school right away and study your ass off!
I know you don't have any idea what to major in yet. You need to study writing. In your future, there will be computers and they have pretty much-taken everything over. Don't worry, not literally, but everyone uses them and they will be in everyone's house. In 95, there will be a new program called windows and it will pave the way for things to come. You will work from home writing on a wide array of topics if you know how to write well.
Also, familiarize yourself with the law, I finally decided to get my AAS degree in CJ.
You don't know what CJ is?
Its Criminal Justice!
But since you have loads of time now, get a BS in law or writing. That way you will make something out of us when you are my age.
I have so damn much to tell you, I just don't know what to say next.
Since I know your future, there is something VERY IMPORTANT that you NEED to do.
On the very 1st day of November 1995, you need to protect dad from her ex. By that time he will be with "Angel bitch"
You will know what I am talking about when you meet her.
Protect him at ALL COSTS!
no matter whos arguing,
no matter who tells you to leave, you need to be there if you ever want to see him again. That's all I can say. I am forbidden from giving you too many details of your future. Don't worry, the rest of the family is still ok.
There is something else I need to inform you about. I know you have been confused about who to be with. You need to go with your true heart and not give a fuck about what people think of you.
Do you realize that is the very thing pushing people away from you?!
They will see right through you and lose respect for you all the while having fun taking advantage of you.
Bi the way, I know you are NOT gay. You are attracted to both, so if you want to be with a guy, that is still fine. You will still be bi no matter who you are with. It won't change who you are. There is NOTHING wrong with being bi either. Something I have always wanted to know...if dad found out would he still love me? I'm sure he would. Communicate with him NOW, while you still have the opportunity to. If you don't protect him then he will be taken away from you so fast you just won't know.
So treat him right, now while you still have a chance!
Don't marry any woman if you are not happy with one.
Don't settle either!
You will fuck our life up more if you settle than if you just wait for the right one. Your 1st priority is our happiness. Don't ever worry about having a son or kids at all.
It will take many decades before you find Mr. Right but you will find him and be happy. He is everything you have dreamed of.
Remember I am you 3 decades from now, so you MUST listen to me, to a tee!
Aside from buying up property around town, you need to buy certain stocks when they are in their infancy. Just buy Netflix, Google, and eBay. At the turn of the century, you will be an inspector inspecting concrete and you will see the E-bay house they are building for $120 MILLION!! Its called Via Tivoli
Yes, one house with a few pools on an immense property. So when I tell you to buy stocks, you DO IT!!
The world will change for the worse, after 9/11. I can't give you the year it happens but you will know when it does. Something major in the USA will be bombed and the government will blame it on foreign powers even though they will be the ones who actually did it! There are many more things to say to you, but they have limited what I can tell you.
I hope you heed everything I have said. If you do, I will wake up in a different reality tomorrow morning.
(YES! Love yourself! You must love you first before you can love anyone else, that's why you are still alone!
PS, this is our name on a site, you will have screen names because we are all connected in the future.
Oh BTW, you are a nudist too! All those years of being comfortable nude, you will be all the time.
