Once you are in a negative space, it can be very difficult to find your way out of it, and I found myself drowning in it. I am grateful for all I have learned about myself whilst dealing with said depression and negativity. It has given me a fresh look at the way I see the world .. the way I see my world.
Not only have I realized that it is our darkest hours and through adversity that we find our strengths but maybe even our purpose. In doing so, I found inspiration not only in myself but many others. I have learned to let go of the people that will not serve me to be a better human being, and will no longer find time to wrap myself up in it. I will only find time for good, I will welcome it!
This is a Letter to the people that Inspired me to have Faith in myself again:
Thank you for each moment you have given me this past year. I have never felt so blessed to have such amazing people in my life. The many things, which you have done for me, are what makes a real friend. I could barely see the light at the end of the tunnel until you told me it was there, maybe not in words but your actions.
Even when I felt like a burden, you assured me I was not! You believed in me when I didn’t even believe in myself. You stuck by through all the rumors, and somehow you knew I was going to be ok. When I would put on my brave face you would see through it and smile without making me feel small or unworthy.
You turned me into a believer of friends, even when I felt I wasn’t good enough to be one. I have never felt so lucky to know you and to be a part of your lives. It has been one of the most humbling experiences I have ever had, but also the most rewarding.
I am still learning how to reach out. How to be able to tell you I love you every day, hopefully, you accept this as a start and know I am forever grateful for the support you have given me. I couldn’t have asked for better people to know and hope you know I thank you in my heart every day.
Your Forever Grateful Friend.
