An entire week of me blogging and posting content on my social media, honestly, I never thought I’d see the day!! I feel like I deserve a pat on the back for getting this far, it really is mind-blowing to me, along with the progress I’ve made in my writing. Today is an ode to my past self, the parts of me that were broken, that hurt, that bled emotions and spilled her feelings everywhere she went.
My darling, this is for you.
Day 7: A Letter to my Past Self
Dear old me,
Honestly I have no clue where to start, so much has happened, even then that’s an understatement. Your life turned upside down and then turned itself back around, I remember your tear stained face and constant red eyes, my dear, you were too young to understand life. Or maybe you understood it enough, and that was too much for you.
You never thought you’d see the light, or that there was a way out, but my dear, there was, there always was. And you grew and grew, you loved and you lost, and it didn’t hurt. Not nearly as much, because you found strength, you lived through hell only to make your way to heaven, it’s not all bliss and it never will be, but you’re okay with that. You should be okay with that.
Thank you for showing me pain, for showing me the darkness, so that I could heal and find my way back to the light. You were a resentment but now you’re a lesson, a part of me to be understood and loved. And I will love you. One day.
From, your future self.
