Earlier this year, superstar British designer Victoria Beckham took to British VOGUE to pen an intimate letter to her 18-year-old self. It was indeed a powerful and moving letter that went viral and widely spread across all social media platforms.
It must be said that whatever feelings or opinions that one have about the former Posh Spice, one can put those aside and concur that the letter was empowering - especially for the scores of young women who look up to Mrs Beckham as a role model.
In the letter, the mother-of-four talks to her younger self and dispenses advice on how to survive a life in the spotlight – from body image and marriage to outlandish outfits. It was both touching and hilarious all at the same time.
We love this quote:

So, what's the point of showcasing this letter in an issue so close to Valentine's Day, you may ask. It is because we must first learn to love ourselves and tell ourselves that we are enough. That one day, everything will work just the way it's supposed to be.
And in the spirit of Valentine's Day and the notion of loving one's self, we've compiled some of our favourite celebrity "Dear Me" letters.
We hope this will lift your spirits!
