I've written a lot of stupid letters to people on this website since I was 12. I'm 21 now. I used to have every single one bookmarked so I could go back and read them. Some of them have long been deleted because I knew it was time to let go of the past. 3 remain. All 3 of them about the different people who shaped me to be the person I am today... through a lot of heartbreak.
Today is about me.
I went through so much hurt and pain from those 3 people I could've sworn I loved and would spend the rest of my life with.
I gave and gave and gave but never received anything close to what I sacrificed in return.
At the time, that hurt.
But now, I am a better me.
I am someone I am in love with.
I am happy.
I am wholly myself.
No one gets to define me and my worth anymore.
So one day I might write a letter to the next boy I fall in love with and hopefully, he is the last because I finally figured out how to love myself and how to properly love someone else.
But today is a reminder for myself that I am enough.
I am kind.
I am gentle.
I am loving.
I am genuine.
I am worthy.
