In 10 years, yesterday you'll have turned 27. It's a big age, and I hope you passed all the other ones alright. I hope you had a wonderful and joy filled birthday. And if you didnt, make the next day even better.
I know it's rough. 17 wasn't all that it turned out to be. Waiting till it's twelve to cry where nobody can see you wasn't fun. Hanging with people till you got socially exhausted but couldn't run was weird and tiring. But I know that you'll be able to find a way to deal with your scrapes and bruises. You've always been a ad smart when it comes to helping other get through emotional pain. Just please act on it. Don't sit in the dark with your pain again till it goes away for the time being.
You, miss, are a beautiful, intelligent, kind, and fun person. And if anyone tells you otherwise turn the other cheek and walk away. They don't deserve you. The friends you had chosen are there for a reason. Don't push them away, because they may need help too.
I love you girl. And even though you 're trying to love your self at 17, I know you'll make it to 27 happy. I don't know when it'll happen, maybe when you reach out for help. But you've come this far. I believe in you. Just. Please don't give up. Im not ready yet to go. I still wanna see so much. You are my only hope. Keep fighting girl, you deserve to be here in the thorned rose of an earth.
There's stillbeauty. You got this.
Sincerly and Hopefully,
17 year old Klarissa.
