There’s a UK-based mental health organization has started a new online challenge!
They are encouraging people to post a message to your five-year-old self!
The organization, Young Minds are hoping to promote self love. Users seem to be participating happily, even posting pictures of their younger selves!
This is a pretty easy challenge.
The instructions given by Young Minds via Twitter are simple: find a photo of your younger self, write three things you’d tell that child, use #5YearOldSelfie and tag three friends to help spread the love.
“Next time you feel down about yourself, remember your message to your #5YearOldSelfie,” their tweet concludes.
Take part in #5YearOldSelfie!
1) Find a photo of your younger self
2) Write 3 things you’d tell that child
3) Use #5YearOldSelfie
4) Tag 3 friends to help spread the love

To my 5 year old self, life is going to be hard. You are a special needs child born with a brain birth defect but don’t let what people call you limit you or hurt you.

Things I’d tell 5-year old me:
– ALWAYS listen to Mom. Always.
– DON’T do drugs.
– BELIEVE in yourself. You are awesome.
– ALWAYS stand up to bullies.
– Warn EVERYONE about a fake billionaire named trump. pic.twitter.com/NbtWmoArVA
