Very good! A well-crafted, thoughtful autobiography-as-advice.

I just had one minor nit, not worth a rewrite: "it self" is one word (itself).

Good luck in the competition!

why i dont have a zillion stars left here beats me. just another one of those things that you will understand, though it is not written.. I believe this story is a brilliant understanding of self, of life that has been and life that will be in the future. a real personal acknowledgement of self judgement, and the emotional joy of truly accepting what has been and what will be. a persoanl victory in its entirity.. I commend you for writing such a heart rendering story of self recognition. of life or love of resentment and of true confessions to self.. a wonderfully moving and compelling lesson on life's realities, acceptance and truth. I cannot express just how incredibly moving this tale has been to read and absorb.. I commend you for writing this journal to self.
a zillion stars are yours my dear friend, who ever you may be. to me, you are truly a woman of worth, incredibly wise, sensative, caring, and above all, a beautiful human being. congratulations for this exceptional story.... with fondest luv from mel xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Wish I had 6stars to give you here. This was wonderfully told. What a great help it would be for young girls reading of your trials and how you overcame them. I commend you for getting through it, some of us girls shrink under such circumstances instead of making 'lemonade'. I loved the line;
When dreamboat turns into steamboat. This was more than a great read!

This letter to a child who the author once was is full of information and warnings and evidences that life has not been easy for this woman. She lists the events that will become stumbling blocks, dwells on future triumphs. This is a well-written, emotional and touching piece.

Let me share my tears here. I read this with a lump in my throat as it is such a story of truth from a father talking to his daughter. It also touched me in a way that was hard for my son who suffers without his father in his life, it is sad. You are so right grab that bull by the horn and be something,someone and let the past hurts go. It is at times like this and in reading this that it does come out and I applaud this story no matter how much my tears come. I just had to share this with you fine Poet:) Good luck in the competiton and this story shall resonate in my for a very long time. Magic xoxox

This is written beautifully. It tells a life story with much emotion and some bitterness. The writer couldn't find acceptance from her Dad and carried that hurt throughout life. She became a strong woman anyway. I love the ending about making lemonade out of lemons.

    Life has handed me a lot of lemons but none stung as hard as the lack of faith in me frommy father. I truly appreciate your kind words, encouragement and support. Smiles, Carol

Was this in a contest? I swear I didn't receive a notification.
You're imagination and ability - Your
still struggling everyday with that one - every day - as one word everyday is an adjective, like everyday clothes
This essay, letter to your younger self is just stunning - the details are haunting and emotionally intense and there is such an honesty and wisdom in your advice. This truly moved me. Brooke
