Dear Reader, Love Jacqui Letran

Dear Reader…

I hid in the school library again today. This is my safe place. The world around me is so cold and full of people who judge me and make me feel inferior. All the other kids have better parents, better lives, better friends, better clothes, better everything. I have nothing. I don’t fit in anywhere. Not at home. Not at school. Not anywhere. Life is miserable and so unfair!

The anger inside me boils. It’s fiery hot, so hot, that when it explodes, I am completely powerless against it. I don’t like being this way. This is not who I am. I don’t like violence or the pain it causes, but I am helpless. I have no power when my mind takes over. I’m at the mercy of my anger and the damage that my anger causes.  It doesn’t matter if they were the perpetrators making me feel bad or an innocent bystander, when the anger erupts, the evil inside of me takes over. There’s nothing I can do but look back at my path of destruction with horror, regret, and sorrow. That is why I’m hiding from the world again.  This is the only way I know how to quiet the anger.

That was me in my high school days and those were my beliefs.  I truly felt as though the world was against me and every one of my actions were judged and criticized. I hated my life. I hated the world. I hated myself. Because I couldn’t see the goodness within me, I couldn’t see the goodness within others.

Through a lot of healing work and mindset training, I learned that all the judgments I felt from others were really judgments I held against myself. These were my own insecurities and self-doubts projected outward at others, so I have someone else to blame. I wasn’t strong enough then, nor did I know, that if I took control of my thoughts and feelings, I could change EVERYTHING about my life.

I wrote this book for you and all the teens out there who have ever felt like I did— sad, hurt, scared, isolated, angry, overwhelmed, different, helpless.  Once you understand the power of your thoughts and how to control them - you will have the power to change your life.

Imagine being able to stay calm and in control regardless of how chaotic your life might feel. How about being able to stop the worries and negative chatter in your mind to calmly go after what you want? What would you be able to do? How would your life be better?

Through my difficult and often painful journey into adulthood, I learned a very simple truth, “change your thoughts, change your life.” I hope this book gives you a good understanding of how your thoughts create your reality, and how much power you truly do have. The power to create the life you want and deserve is in your hands! Use it wisely.
