Dear Present Broken Self,
I know You’ve been through hell and back and then hell and back again. I know you’ve been feeling broken lately and have had a hard time trusting anyone, so I am here to tell you that you will be alright. You are strong, remember that. You are worth it. Don’t let the cruel actions of others make you question your self-worth. You do not control what others do, so don’t blame yourself for their actions. Don’t think you did something wrong because others decided to hurt you and betray your trust for their own selfish reasons, they choose to do that, not you. Only take what you can handle. Only fix what you think has a chance. Don’t let anyone influence your choices. Those are your decisions. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad for a choice you made that you felt was right for you. Don’t let anyone or their actions define who you are or who you strive to be, unless it’s beneficial to you. Don’t let anyone take advantage of you again. You have control over that, you always have.
Your stronger self
