Anupama writes a letter to her 18-year old daughter. Read what she has to say.
First, they ignore you
later they sneak up on you
they watch you
they hate you
they follow you
but they don’t admit
they want to like you
but they can’t even stand you
they want to admire you
but their ego doesn’t allow them to
they want to appreciate your work
but they find it too difficult
then they criticize you
they question you
they doubt you
they try to bring you down
plant a seed of fear in you
Here, you got to be strong
a badass a ruthless dreamer
whose dreams are bigger than any shit happening in their life
whose aims are brighter than any negativity in their life
you got to fight every day and win the fight for yourself
you got to believe in yourself
you got to stand for yourself
Remember no one gives you the power you have to grab it.

Hey, I Am Priyanka! Mom of A Little Girl, A Voracious Reader, Coffee Addict.
Yes Priyanka I believe that one needs to fight against all odds to stand high!! And the worst part is our own people distract and discourage us if we try to rise a little higher.
Very true, that’s the most hardest part. Thanks 🙂
