Dear Me.

I’d like to start off by telling you that you’re not alone. No matter how many people tell you this or how cliché it sounds, it’s one of the truest things that I can say to you. So many people are going through very similar experiences like yours right now, and I know that it is hard, but you are not the only one. Sometimes hearing this helps, and other times it makes it harder because your heart is so big and you don’t want to see others hurting, but I just want you to know that these feelings that you have are okay, and it will get better.

The thoughts that you’re having right now are temporary. I know that you’re in a dark place. I know that you’re struggling more than you can even put into words. I know that some days it is hard for you to even get out of bed, and that the thought of eating makes you sick sometimes. But these feelings are just temporary. Someday soon, these feelings will go away, I promise. I know it won’t be today, or tomorrow, or next week, but I know that one day you will look around at all of the good in your life and all that you’ve accomplished, and you will be happy. In the grand scheme of things, these days of sadness and heartache won’t mean a whole lot, even if they mean the world now.

You can get through this. You are one of the strongest people that I have ever met, and this is just an obstacle that you will overcome. I have so much faith in you, and I know that you are strong enough to make it through. And on the days when you aren’t, I will be there by your side to help you up and carry you along, because that is one of the many things I’m here to do as your friend.

You deserve so much more than the things that you are feeling right now. You deserve all of the happiness in the world. I have never met a person that deserved as much greatness from the world as you do. You give so much and never expect a thing in return, and this is something that I admire so much about you. But it is time that you let life give back some of the things that you’ve given it. You are so selfless, and sometimes you need to be a little bit selfish. After all, your happiness needs to come before others sometimes. If you don’t find happiness, how can you give it to others?

Let people in. Let people love you and spoil you and give you everything that you have ever wanted. Accept the good in life. Don’t run away because you’re scared that things are going too well. Embrace every good thing in life, because although these things don’t last forever, they are amazing while they last.

I love you so much, and I cannot wait to see what life has in store for you. You are going to do great things in this life, so please don’t be afraid to let great things happen in return. You’re amazing, you’re beautiful inside and out, and you are loved so much more than you can ever imagine. ~CTW💜~
