To little 7 year old me,
Im sorry you have to be hurt. I know your scared. I know people are constantly hurting you. Stay strong. Things will get better. You just have to hope, keep on hoping. Never ever give up hope that things will change. Because, they will.
I want you to know, I love you. You are brave and strong. You have to be, I know that. But you are a fighter. You never gave up hope that things would change.
I love your determination. I love your tonasity. I love your strength. I love your courage. You are a brave little girl.
Always remember there are people who care. They are there, even when it seems there’s no one there. They are there, and they will come help you out when times get rough.
There are very kind people. Like that student social worker. Like that staff member who treated you with respect and like you were a somebody. They are there.
Remember I am here too. I will always protect you. I will always love you. Remember to reach out if you need to. Dont go it alone. Reach out and get the help you deserve and remember, your a very special and courageous person.
Your grown up self
