Dear child 143

Dear child 143,

I’m sorry I won’t be your mentor anymore. We had a lot of fun, but there was still so much more to do. These are just a few things I want you to know:
You are not perfect. You never will be. No one is or ever will be perfect.

You will have troubles. Everyone does. Most of the time these troubles are not your fault.

You can get angry about your troubles or accept troubles as a challenge. Accepting them as a challenge is way more fun.

Don’t be so hard on yourself. I’ve been too hard on myself most of my life and know how it hurts.

Forgive others. There may come a time when you desire their forgiveness.

You are capable of more than you realize. Do your best. That’s all anyone can ask.

Thank you for allowing me to get to know you.

Mr. Phil
