It’s time to finally write myself a letter, expressing my gratitude for holding on this long.
I know… I know things are becoming tougher every day — as you get older. I know days are becoming harder to deal with, and I thank you for staying strong. Despite having the feeling of being spiralled deeper and deeper into a chasm of hopelessnesss — you still stayed strong. And I am truly proud of you.
Although there are moments when you couldn’t hold on to your tears and you just allow them to roll down your eyes, that did not mean you are weak and a loser, that only meant you’ve been strong for too long.
Sometimes, you just want to end things, to make the pain stop, but then reality hits you and tells you, “It’s not what you deserve.”
I know you are frustrated. I know you are tired. I know you’re in pain. I know you’re having a hard time believing things are going to be okay. But you need to hold on a little longer. For I know everything has its end — even our struggles.
