Darling, I know you are mentally and emotionally exhausted.
I know you are tired of crying. I know you are tired of always wishing someone was out there to comfort you and make your pain go away.
But, the truth is that not many people would understand your story. Not many people would understand the pain behind your scars. Not many people would understand the sadness you’re carrying in your soul. And not many people would care about you.
Darling, I know that you are mentally and emotionally exhausted. And that’s okay.
Because you’re allowed to be tired. You’re allowed to be sad. You’re allowed to cry. You’re allowed to feel fragile.
No one expects you to ooze positivity and joy all the time. No one expects you to look tough and invincible all the time. Because perhaps things will get more difficult for you. Perhaps life will send more difficult problems and pains your way. But, what I know for sure is that what you’re going through is just a phase – a phase that will be over soon.
I know that you’re thinking about giving up because the world around you gets too difficult to handle and the pain feels too real. The ones who are supposed to be always there for you are nowhere to be found, and the ones you’ve trusted all your life couldn’t care less about you.
But, what I need you to know is that these are some of the things you can’t have control over in life. Because there will always be someone who doesn’t deserve your trust. There will always be someone who doesn’t deserve your kindness, your compassion, your respect. Your love.
There will always be someone who wants to take advantage of you. There will always be someone who treats you like a second choice. There will always be someone who is solely interested in playing with your feelings.
It’s painful and tiring to be around such people. But, that’s the way life is and there’s nothing you can do to change it. But, what you can do is prevent selfish, manipulative, and deceitful people from having control over your feelings and actions.
Darling, I know you are mentally and emotionally exhausted. And that’s okay because you’re going to be all right.
Because there are some things that will never let you down. Things, such as that cup of coffee you drink in the morning, that 100-movie watchlist, your favorite song, the hug from your lovely cat or dog. These are the things that fill your heart with joy and warmth, regardless of how unimportant they may seem.
So, wipe away your tears, darling. Wipe away your tears and be gentle with yourself. Remember that what you are going through is just a temporary phase. Remember that you have what it takes to overcome any difficulty and pain life may throw your way. And remember that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
