A Letter To My Younger Self

In today’s modern and busy world, we rarely take a moment out and reflect on how much we’ve achieved in life. From getting our first job, living in new cities and navigating the modern dating world, there are many events which make us stronger and allow us to learn and grow.  But, the hectic and busy lifestyle most of us now lead can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed. So how do women deal with this?

Well it’s been found that women often adopt a ‘tend-and-befriend’ approach, whereby they rely on their social circles for advice and encouragement. To celebrate this fact, RESCUE® has launched a campaign called “A Letter to my Younger Self” and we’re partnering with BBC documentary maker and TV presenter Cherry Healey along with four other influential women.

All these women have worked extremely hard to be where they are today, but when it comes to giving advice to their younger selves, they say don’t wait for permission to follow your dreams, your achievements are not a measurement of your self worth and you should always just be you because nobody is perfect.

Our hero influencer, Cherry Healey, left her comfortable job to start an entirely new career with the BBC, while author and broadcaster, Emma Gannon, became her own boss and a public speaking pro. Personal trainer, Carly Rowena, conquered Mount Kilimanjaro, and TV presenter and host, Scarlette Douglas, overcame not getting what she thought was her dream job, to go on and present A Place in the Sun. Lastly, wellbeing coach and blogger, Jemma Andrew-Adiamah went for her goal and achieved her PhD.

Each of them has written a letter to their younger selves, reflecting on their achievements and all the things that have helped shape the people they are today. 

Now we want to encourage women everywhere to do the same, so it’s time to take a #rescuemoment, reach out to friends and reminisce on how far we’ve come in life. Join the conversation on Facebook here.
