To the person who saved me from the dark: thank you.
Before I met you, I was messed up, depressed with nothing left to live for. I was hiding in the corner of my room, afraid to be seen or heard.
Emotionally, I was hiding in the corner of my mind afraid to be ‘touched’. I was a prisoner of my own toxic thoughts.
Each time I tried to escape that prison of mine, something pulled me back even deeper—something that reminded me how fragile and incapable of living I was.
I was helpless.
I was a spectacle of dust carried by the wind with no control over my life. I was a puppet in a theater waiting to play the role someone gave me.
The sun was shining, but in my life, it was always dark and cold until the day I met you.
So, thank you.
Thank you for being my friend. Thank you for being there for me through thick and thin.
No one asked you to pick up my broken pieces and put them back together, but you did it anyway.
No one asked you to deal with my fears and frustrations, but you did it anyway.
Only you had the ‘Hercules strength’ to pull me out from the darkest corners of my mind. Only you had the power to make me believe I am my own worst enemy. You made me understand that it all began and grows inside of me.
You told me I am the one in charge of my life. You are the one who told me my thoughts cannot control me because I’m controlling them.
You were my friend when I needed one the most.
Thank you for being my lover. You are the first person I have ever blindly and entirely trusted.
Not only that, you gave me shelter with your friendly embrace, but you also released me from my dark and dull prison with your love. You are the one who had the key of my cell.
You took my hand and we stepped into the light. I stepped into the light. Do you know how hard it is to accept light after all those years of darkness?
Of course, you do.
Thank you for keeping on loving me until my ‘eyes’ got used to the light. That was a dark period for you. I’m sorry my light brought you to darkness. I know you only made it through so you could save me.
Thank you for releasing me from my prison.
Thank you for teaching me how to love.
Thank you for returning my faith in people.
Thank you for being the one I love.
