Day 11: Write a letter to your 8 year old self

Hannah,

I'm not sure what to say to you. I'll try to use small words since you're still little and I've grown up. You are one of the sweetest girls I have ever seen. You've made so many friends and keep all of them happy. But something you need to know is that being nice and being a friend is different. It's okay to be friends with people right now, but they won't always be around. Sometimes people go, but only because they move away or want to make other friends. What I want you to remember though, is that you don't have to be nice to everyone. If someone is being mean to you, stand up for yourself and don't be afraid. You are going to be so excited when you become a grown up. You're going to have all kinds of adventures and do amazing things, especially when it comes to reading and writing. And remember, always be yourself.
