Hello, my boy. How are you doing? I always ask you if you are happy because to me, your happiness is my first priority. I could have been anyone in this world, I could have been extremely rich or very poor, I could have been good or bad? Handsome or not handsome? I could have been nice or not nice but I pray thanking God every day that I am you. My life and me being you has been a life full of adventure and even as we have had our fair share of struggles, I want you to know that I am so glad and I feel so blessed to be you. Lord knows I wouldn’t want to be someone else even if I was given the choice. I love you. I love everything about you. David Mania. I love the name. I love who you are and what you stand for. I love that you go for what you want, no matter the hurdles you may face. I love that for you, for us, we move regardless. I love that you wrote me a letter to myself.
The last one to two years have been very tough on you my boy and I see that it has worn you down a lot. I see that you are struggling. I see that maybe you may feel that you are not where you would want to be. I feel like you are sometimes too harsh on yourself expecting too much at such a short time. I, however, do not mean to blame the situation on you and all I am saying is that give it a little bit more time. Keep working. Keep grinding and I can promise you that we will get there. God is in control and He sees you and what you do and how much you love it. As I write a letter to myself, I want you to know that your dreams are true and there are there waiting for you to be brave enough and reach out.
I know that you would die for your dream and I am here to tell you that I would die for it too with you. I know nobody really sees it, nobody sees your vision but I want to tell you that I do. I see it. I see it as clear as day and Lord knows I want it just as bad for you too. When you started Mania Inc., I felt like you had made such a good choice of something to pursue. Knowing that you love writing and that you have always wanted the freedom to write on what you want and what interests you, I knew and felt deeply that Mania Inc. was what you were meant to do. I love your work and thank you for writing a letter to myself.

I would say the same for music. I know you burn inside with a desire to pursue music and out of the songs I have listened to so far, I want to encourage and support you. Go for it. Go get your dream. Whatever happens along the way, whether you make it or not, whether it works out or not, I will be here for you 100%. I love you. I feel so humbled that even in adversity and even when times are rough you push on and fight on. Your resilience is something that I really admire and I want to say that you have shown me strength beyond what I thought was possible and for that, I thank you.
The Lord is With You
I am eternally grateful for always being there, albeit for yourself, and pushing on and fighting on. I love you my boy and you are everything that I love in the world. You are my forte, my rock, my guardian angel. As the Bible says, even though I walk through the shadow of death, I shall not fear or cower as the Lord is with me. Davie, the Lord is with you every second of every day and He is there, guiding and protecting you. I know that times get rough and you sometimes feel that you are struggling or suffering too much but I want you to know that those are the times when the Lord is with you and carrying you. As the saying goes, one set of footsteps Lord, You were carrying me.
In all our 24 years of life Davie, I have always known you to be a lover, not a fighter. You have always been someone with such a full heart and I want to say thank you for that. We have loved and even lost, especially due to distance, but you never lose the love that you have in your heart. I want to say that I know that when you love someone, there will always be space for them in your heart. I know that that love is true and I want to thank and appreciate you for having such a big heart. We have been in love a few times and in all those times, you have been a very loving and caring person and that to me is your strength. I love that you love truly and care and I really admire you for that.

On the flip side, I know you have lost and have broken a few hearts and have also had your heart broken a few times. I want to tell you that I forgive you for all the hearts you have broken and I pray that you forgive yourself too. I know you have forgiven yourself and still are, and I want to tell you that you did all you could, given the circumstances. I also pray that you forgive those who broke your heart too and as for me, I forgive them fully. I hold no grudge with no one and I wish them all the best in their lives. So do I. I think the world became less emotional when it became digitalized. I feel like I miss writing letters. That’s why I wrote a letter to myself.

My boy, you are destined for great things. The vision I see for your future is so great that it surpasses the depth of what we believe is the realm of possibility. I love that you are artsy and a techie. I love that you adore music and sing your heart out. I love that you do not care about what others think of you. I appreciate you for not wasting your time on that. I appreciate you for who you are, how you dress, and most of all I appreciate your dreadlocks. I feel so good every time we are walking out and as people pass you by, they wonder and marvel at your style.

I know some look to wonder like “whoa, look at this guy” but also I want to appreciate those who love your style and are like “damn, what a guy!” I appreciate you so much. To me, you’re a style god and I want you to know that you rock. Yes. You can gerrit! The locs for me are a statement and part of who you are and your identity. I want to say that even when you may feel judged or treated with contempt because of them, do not fumble and do not change who you are to fit the prejudices and stereotypes of others. I love you just the way you are and I love the locs. Period. While writing a letter to myself, I want you to know that you are perfect just the way you are.

As we move to the next stage of our life, and as we make the changes that need making to get where we are going and where we need to go, I want you to know that I got you. I got you 100%. I will have your back and if chasing your dreams kills you, then we die. Yes. If it means giving it all to get where you are going, know that I will give it all too. If it kills me, I die. I will love you like hell every day and I will stand by you and the decisions you make. I will forgive you when you do wrong and I will be there for you even when things are tough. Wow. What a letter to myself!
As we write a letter to myself, I wonder whether this is you being a little narcissistic but then, I appreciate that like we are allowed and encouraged to love others, you also have a right to love yourself. I am grateful that you have the courage to be who you are, to express yourself, and to write a letter to myself. I know you get some backlash and heat when you do what you do or make a video about something or write about this or that. Haters will always hate. It’s a career for them, pitifully. Love yourself and acknowledge that you are who you are and you are beautiful. As for me, I think I am devilishly handsome.

Some have even gone as far as to say that this sometimes can be a little girlish but I want to tell you that if the XX is more than the XY, then you have insight into the other side and that is an advantage. I know you are an emotional man, I respect it and do not regard you as effeminate in any way. Do not let anyone bring their homophobia unto you or try and say that you are queer or soft or whatever. As far as I know and I am concerned, you are straight as a man can be. And I know you love cake so, yeah. A topic for another day. Lastly, as we write a letter to myself, I want to tell you that I do not care what anyone says or what they do, trying to make you feel less than who you are.

Do You, Stay True
I know that people tend to feel intimidated by you and will likely act indifferently trying to put you down. I want to tell you that I do not care about anyone whose vibe isn’t right and I will not vibe with anyone who has any negative vibes. That is trash to me and I want to tell you that you don’t need anyone, especially such kinds of people. You can do this on your own and let those who do not see the dream languish in their own mundaneness. I love you my boy and I pray to God I don’t lose you. I am eternally grateful for everything that you have done for me. Thank you for writing me a letter to myself. Thank you so much! God bless Davie and Godspeed.
