Give me a chance to shine. Give me a chance to prove that I can be unselfish. Let me prove that Future Sara can do this whole “loving caring thing” down. Failure is simply not an option. At this juncture I will succeed. I want this more than anything. I want this love more than anything. I want this man and relationship more than anything. I feel that this could work. I believe in the mission of making Future Sara happy.

You see there are three personal stages. Present You is the person you are today, who was shaped by Past You. The mistakes and successes made by Past You should be admired and admitted as such. It was a stepping stone to Future you, or who you may be tomorrow or further in the future.
