heavenly angel, you have been through more in your lifetime than most people have and you’re tackling every single obstacle with pure elegance. in 10 years, i hope and pray that you have gotten away from all the toxic loops within your family & continue to grow into the woman i know you can become. in 10 years, i hope and pray that you’re no longer breaking your own heart, crying yourself to sleep every night wondering why you weren’t enough. because baby girl, you are enough. you are more than enough to the people that actually matter. in 10 years, i pray that you’re no longer struggling with the immense amount of pain and hardships that you feel are drowning you now. heavenly, i pray that you’re happy. that’s all i want from you and i know that you’ll achieve that goal, in time. patience is a virtue, but it’s a virtue that you sometimes lack. i’m very proud of you for continuing life, although you may feel you are ready for whatever is after. i hope you’re truly LIVING. not just existing in a world full of life and mystery, you need to thrive. you are beautiful despite “society’s standards”. i hope you have remained standing up for what you love and believe. always remember this: pain is only temporary. you have so much more growth and healing to do, but always remember that each and everyday, i love you more.
always & forever,
19 year old you
