I was going to write this letter to your mother 25 years ago, but at that time I was young, your mother had just been born, I had to feed her, take her to daycare, pick her up, clean the house, prepare food and drinks, send your grandfather to school in clean clothes, I was busy thinking about going /I was a student/, doing assignments, and accomplishing all this. Besides, she doesn't have much time, what kind of life experience does a 25-year-old girl have to share? Now, I, your grandmother, have learned many things from life. Almost everything you and I have, and the people we love, are the same, ours. I sincerely wish you a happy life. Therefore, I am writing this letter.

Never be afraid to fall. Don't be afraid to fall off the bike, the swing, or the sled. There is pain, even unbearable pain. However, at this time, even if he cries, he has the patience to get up, he is quick, agile, and determined. Don't be afraid to fight either, experience taking hits and reacting immediately. Don't be afraid of dogs. Your parents have a dog and I have a dog. You have no choice but to love them. Don't be afraid to speak your mind. You don't have to shut up because a well-behaved child should be big. You should not hide your "friendship" and "love" without telling your thoughts. If he doesn't care what you say and asks for tolerance, show that friendship and love to the devil. Don't be afraid to admit your mistakes and ask for forgiveness. Only strong people do that. I, you, "I'm sorry, it's my fault. I want to be strong enough to say, "How can I fix my mistake?" Don't be afraid of getting bad grades. At this time, you learn about your weaknesses and what you should focus on. Bad grades don't mean you're a bad kid. Understand that grades are your motivation to act. Don't be afraid of not being noticed by others. While kids are the center of attention and being invited to parties, you're using your time to grow. Don't be afraid to fall in love. When love comes. Don't resist, enjoy growing up. If your loved one is insensitive, don't be afraid to tell him your situation, you won't lose anything. There is a desire to return your love somewhere. Don't be afraid of the first kiss. You all think you can't kiss, but kissing is in our genes. Do not be afraid of the first sex. Only if that person is the person you love. But, the following, the consequences, but think carefully. Don't be afraid of celibacy or marriage. This is your right. Don't be afraid of divorce. It's a problem caused by someone or both of you not knowing each other well enough. It's not the end, it's the beginning of something, maybe even better. Don't be afraid of loneliness. Understand that it is your chance to be with yourself, the only person who is born, intelligent and understands you. If possible, learn to enjoy it. It's an opportunity that doesn't last long. Don't be afraid to be strong. Strong people only associate with strong people. Don't be afraid to cry. Only a strong person can cry, laugh and solve all his problems by himself. Don't be afraid to try something new. Don't worry about what people will say or do. Try to take what life gives you. Even if your wish seems stupid to others, you should try it. My grandmother rode a motorcycle. Few people supported him. Don't be afraid of getting old. This is not a terrible thing. On the contrary, it is something that makes you appreciate life more, love and understand your loved ones more strongly. And why am I writing such a strange letter to you? Now finally, don't be afraid of losing your loved ones forever. I was not sure whether to write about this, but I decided to write. You and I both know that the final path—death and eternal separation—is inevitable. So, love as much as you can while they are still alive and together. Love does not disappear. Love you! The grandmother.
