Dear past me,
There are so many things I'd like to tell you...
I wish I could tell you that it gets easier with time. That all the pain and loss and
fear goes away somehow but, I don't want to lie to you. You deserve better than that.
You've always deserved better than that...
There's one thing I can tell you though. You're stronger than you know. I'm sorry
they stole your voice and your light. I'm sorry they broke your wings and left you
feeling like you didn't have the right to hope and dream. I promise you that everything
I do now is for you. Every step I take, I carry you with me. I want to do right by you.
I'm sorry it took me so much time to realise how strong you were.
I promise that I'll do my best to heal you, us. We're going to be okay.
— By me
