Hey, you. Did you know that you’re loved, that you’re worth loving? I want you to know that you can change your own life. It doesn’t have to stay this way. If you’re not happy with who you are right now, you can start to change that. It’s a process–I know, as I’ve begun it myself–but it’s certainly possible, because many people go through with that process. In fact, I’m not sure it ever stops. We’re consistently improving and bettering ourselves. You’re capable. Nothing you’ve done, nothing that has been done to you, will ever change that fact. There’s a reason why you’re here. Literally, grab life by the balls and run. You’ve got it. I want you to know that I’m rooting for you. And if you’re a Christian and it helps to know this, remember that God’s love never fails, no matter how awful things get. God believes in you, and I believe in you. I understand. I half wrote this for you, my dear reader, and half for me to reassure myself. Because honestly, we can all get stuck in anger or circling thoughts. We can all be self-centered. I am, undoubtedly. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. We learn. We grow. And remember, whether you’re a Christian or not, pain often causes growth. Remember when you were younger and you had all those growth spurts? It hurt a lot. It was painful. But you got taller! This is just the same thing. Emotional growing pains.
I love you. And remember–don’t stay strong. Never just stay. It’s okay to break down, just pick up the pieces and build yourself up even stronger. Keep building. Never just stay strong. Keep getting stronger.
Have a wonderful day.
