Dear College Me

Ta’lor,

Your worth is inside of you. God gave it to you when he created you. You were designed to be more than basic. You were made to be more than a one-night-stand for any man. You have every tool you need to excel beyond what you see; to excel beyond what you think you truly need.

In those moments when loneliness takes over your mind, know that your worth matters more than the need to be in company. Know that you can spend the night alone and that feeling of worthlessness can be filled with God’s presence, if you allow it.

You deserve to manifest in a space filled with light and love, not space filled with bodies.

You deserve more.

More for yourself now. More for your future self. More for the college graduate who needs you now to be the best version of you. Giving in to every temptation will lead you down a path of being unmarried, with child, and starring at a degree of dreams, that you will have to put on hold.

Don’t call him…

Don’t chase him…

Don’t allow loneliness to make you fall for a man who does not love and adore you.

Be brave sis. Be you.

With love,

Your future self.


#HealZone Day 17: “Write a letter to your past self”

This prompt gave me the opportunity to face the me who allowed so much foolishness in her heart and her bed.

The reality is, the choices that I made on my college campus have carried with me to this day. I am still fixing my errors. Am I stronger? Yes! I am wiser and I know what not to do, but that does not erase the fact that I am still without the desires of my heart because I allowed loneliness to overpower my worth.

  1. [You deserve to manifest in a space filled with light and love, not space filled with bodies.] This just made me so happy and positive and thank you for this lovely post. I guess, it’s all about time and how looking back, we’re left with experiences we’ve learnt from, even though those experiences cost a lot of mistakes. Amazing post! ♥♥
