Dear Heleen.

You’ve Got This

Listen, it’s clearly not easy figuring out who you are. It sucks. I know. It is hard. We have really been trying this past year,

You still don’t know who you are, and probably won’t for a while, and that’s okay. You’ve come a long way, and have a have a long way to go. You’ve made some mistakes, and have so many more to make, but for now, let me apologize for some of my wrongs.

I’m sorry for all of the times I doubted your strength.I spent far too many nights worrying because I didn’t know how to get through tomorrow. With every wrong decision, I wallowed in my consequences. I almost gave up repeatedly, but some how, I always made it through. While I have my battle scars, I have made it through all of the obstacles life has thrown at me, and I’m stronger than ever. I promise to wake up every morning, and I promise to love myself more than anyone else, because I have worth.

I’m sorry for all of the times I told you I hate you.I  don’t. I love you. I love you for always pushing me through the lowest points of my life. I’m sorry for blaming you for all of my mistakes. I’ve learned along the way that mistakes are to be made, but that doesn’t mean that there is any reason to tell myself I hate myself. I did not die. I am grateful.

I’m sorry for spending too much time on people who don’t deserve a moment of my time. I’m not sorry for being “too nice,” because that’s who I am. I care a lot about people and would do anything to help anyone in need. What I am sorry for is for letting people take advantage of my kindness.

But you know what?

That’s okay.

Life has ups and downs, and no matter where you are in life, it’s going to be okay. I never envisioned myself where I am today. What keeps me going is knowing that life gets better. (I pray)

As you go on, remember this…

Somewhere, someone is happier with less than you have. One of the biggest mistakes I fail to remember is that where I am in life is not permanent.

Today I promise you to be so strong so nothing can disturb my peace of mind. Think only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

You don’t always have to know who you are.

You don’t have to have the big picture, or know where you’re heading.

Sometimes, it’s enough to know where you’re going next.

Take it easy H
