I know you have not been feeling well lately. I just want you to know that I am proud of you. I see your baby steps and I know how hard you have been trying to pull through. Hold your head up high, this is not the end. I know it is taking you all your might to get up and keep pushing. I just wanna tell you it will be worth it in the end. I know your mind’s a mess. Don’t take these thoughts to heart. Please take a rest, close your eyes, and try to look for your bright places again. You have been blanketed by the things that keep you hostage for too long and by the demons you have been carrying on your back. Please, please hang in there. I am proud of you. Please, please do not drown. Please, please do not lose yourself. This will be over soon. It will be okay. You will be okay.
