An Open Letter to my Hurting Friend

It hurts me to see you hurting. Someone like you, in my opinion, never deserves to go through what you are going through.

I wish you could see how much you’re truly worth. I wish you could see how much potential you have and how easy it would be for you to reach the fullest of it. I wish you could see that life doesn’t always have to be so difficult. I wish you could go an entire day without feeling the weight of seven worlds on your shoulders.

You are unbelievably strong… much stronger than you think you are. I know some days you feel like the world is caving in on you, but what you don’t realize is that you are strong enough to push away that caving world. You can move mountains with your touch and move a nation with your words. You can do absolutely anything, without a question.

You are unbelievably courageous. I don’t know many people who have the courage and willpower to go through the day, conquer it, and fight their inner demons all at once. But you do.

You are worth it (and then some). You are the kind of person everybody would love to have as their friend. Your jokes and laughter can brighten a room and even lift my own dark clouds away. Every single part of who you are is precious, and the day you realize that is the day that you will change your own life.

You are someone who makes others feel better about themselves. Why don’t you use that same magic on yourself?

You don’t need to settle for anything less than who you are. You don’t need him. You may think you do. You may want him, but you certainly don’t need him. It would be hard to find someone who is everything that you are. It would be hard to find someone that would not only compliment your unique traits, but push you to be an even better version of yourself. It would be distressingly difficult, but you could do it. There is someone amazing out there waiting for someone like you to come and change their world around.

If you could just see in yourself half of what I see in you, you’d understand. I hope that you will someday.

Your life, your rules.

With love,

Your Friend
