Sending Letters to You

Dear You,

You're hurting, aren't you? Maybe more than you've ever hurt before. It must feel like it is so hard to breathe, to get through the day, to act like you aren't being torn apart.

I know that my words cannot take it all away, but I just wanted you to know that I care. I know that's hard to believe coming from me, a stranger, but I promise you it's true. I get it, and I care.

And you are not worthless. You are not alone. Someone somewhere loves you more than you can imagine. You have so much good left to do in this world, so much to share, and so much to see. I promise you, if you hang on a little more… a little longer, you'll see that it's worth it.

I know you're hurting, I know you feel lost and scared and that my words alone can't heal the hurt you're feeling deep inside. But I'm here to tell you that it gets better and that there is always hope, sometimes it's just harder to find.

But it's there, I promise you, it's there.

    A Survivor.
