“If your 8 year old self met you today, would they be proud?”
I saw that being passed around Twitter. It’s an interesting thought to ponder.
Personally, I know my 8 year old self would not have told me either way. I was the quietest kid ever from what I remember. Very shy. Only spoke when spoken to. Not the carefree, lumbering social oaf that I am now.
But, what would my 8 year old self think of me today? I think he’d like the person I have become. I think he’d be proud of the type of person I am, and how I treat others. Though I think he’d be disappointed with how I treat myself.
But overall, I think he’d be happy. He was easily pleased.
Would your 8 year old self be proud of you?
