The past couple of months have been quite rough, we endured the worst together. So here is a love note to you, to thank you and remind you of how special you are to me.
It’s me again. It’s always going to be you and I and I think we forget to acknowledge that every single day.
Yes, the last few months have been horrid and it did take a toll on us. We hit rock bottom and till date, we are crawling out of it. So here are a few things I want you to remember
We need to experience to grow
I think in the past 26 years, we played it well by concealing, distracting, running away from any difficulty and pain we faced. Yes, it did make us look stronger, but what it really did is make us stagnant and shallow.
I believe we need to experience every emotion good or bad with all intensity. Make us realize that we are capable of experiencing such emotions. Pain that drains the life and light out of us. Pain that hurts mentally and physically and there’s no escape. All to only emerge stronger and wiser than ever. So today I promise you we stand together and face every difficulty head-on. There are moments that you forget how strong you are, and even though you are broken there is so much beauty in our pain.
You are enough
Time and again I did question your ways, doubting the very roots of our character, because of others who didn’t really see the light we possess, the uniqueness we share. But today I proudly say you are enough, you are worthy and nothing in the world is going to undermine us. Most importantly it’s time to let go of the negativity, let go of people who only drag us down and focus on our dream and passion.
You are everything you need
You need to stop worrying about the boys and what the future holds. There is so much more to you than being someone’s girlfriend or wife, there is so much in the present rather than over thinking what the future holds for you. You need to find happiness within, invest more in yourself. And learn to love yourself, before you start looking for love elsewhere. People are going to leave, people are going to hurt you, what we need to remember is what they taught us and appreciate people who have stayed.
And lastly, I just need you to remember that you need to be true to yourself, be selfless, be forgiving, inspire others and laugh and love like you have never seen pain before. The past has just made us a better person. You are a striver, a survivor and a thriver let’s hold on to that quality and emerge stronger and more graceful and conquer the world by seizing every moment of every day!
Forever and always,
