Read Isobel's letter below, realising her own strength.


Dear Self,

In the words of Adele, “Hello from the other side.”

It might be hard to believe right now but trust that you’ll make it through. You will heal, you will learn, and you will grow… You will emerge from the other side of these dark woods, stronger and more resilient than you ever dreamed possible.

Forget being frozen by what others think. It’s impossible to please every person in this world of contrasts and conflicts. Use your voice and speak up for what you believe is right. Or spend your nights lying awake wondering, “What if…”

You may ruffle some feathers along the way, but this journey will only bring you closer to those who will become your most cherished friends. They will illuminate your path, and you will do the same for them.

Always remember: You are more powerful than you think.
