If you had a chance to say something to your teen age self what would you? Well  Gabrielle Union  did just that. In the October issue of Ebony Magazine, Gabby  penned a letter to her younger self.
 
In the note, she encourages her younger self to be comfortable with her skin tone and to not let low self-esteem trick her into believing that she has low value. She also tells her younger self and other young women to never worry about love, love will find you and you will find love in an incredible man.

 Here are a few excerpts from the story:

To her younger self:

Your deep Mahogany skin may not resemble that of the others in your family, but it’s just as gorgeous and you’re just as worthy….One day you’ll appreciate how much your brown skin shines in the moonlight, glistens in the sun and ages ever so slowly.

On her self-worth and true love

Don’t let that pesky low self-esteem creep in and fool you into believing that you don’t have value…don’t allow it to crush your will or dampen your spirit…Never worry about LOVE….real love will find you….an incredible love with an incredible man….there is a beautiful rainbow at the end of your storm.

Don’t let other people’s needs, wants, desires, fantasies, hopes or dreams dictate your choices and decisions. Follow your own path, and don’t worry that you’re being selfish or disloyal.

You can read the entire story in the October Issue of Ebony Magazine, on news stands September 10th.

So what would you say to your younger self?
