An Open Letter To The Ones Who Keep Me Going

*Trigger Warning*

I’m pretty sure I’ve reached rock bottom. Actually I’m more than just pretty sure; it’s for damn sure. 

When you hit rock bottom you quickly lose sight of the bigger picture. 

But when you feel as though you can’t take it anymore and all you want more than anything right now is to give up, there you are, through thick and thin; gently reminding me of my worth in this world. 

Motivating me to keep looking forward, believing in me, validating me and giving me what often feels like the last glimmer of hope to help me get through today and then without judgment you do it all over again tomorrow.

Accepting my flaws, my sadness and pain, the not-so-pretty stuff, the vulnerability and all the weirdness in my life; and still you are able to see my inner beauty. 

Holding my hand, wiping my tears away and going that extra mile to put a smile on my face; any way you know how. 

You continue to show me how loved I am, how needed I am; that I am not alone, that I matter and that I am enough. 

And you do it all without hesitation, using every ounce of your own strength to shovel away the rocks that are weighing me down in order to save me from my darkness and carry me into the light. 

Just know, from the bottom of my heart I will always and forever be eternally grateful to you and for you.
