Dear Younger Me,
Thank you for surviving. The traumatic events you experienced were not your fault. I am sorry that solitary reading was your only escape. I am sorry that people told you-you would never amount to anything in life. I am sorry that the traumatic events robbed your childhood.
However, I honor your courage to speak up and fight back. I honor you for surviving. I honor you for not giving up on yourself. I honor your inner strength to pray: “God, I know You love me and have a plan for my life. Please help me.” You never stopped believing that life will get better.
I am here today because of your unbreakable spirit. I am proud of you. You are beautiful. You are loved. Thank you.
