Une Lettre

Dear little darling,

One day you’ll meet someone who makes you feel things you never knew you could feel for another person. They’ll make you build your dreams around them, make you count time by the way their heart beats. And of course they make you feel like you’re drowning but you don’t mind. Yes, you don’t mind. They know your favorite song by heart even though they hate it, and they’ll know how you hate raisons in your bread, or hate rain in the middle of your day.

They talk to you until 2 AM in the morning, or even until 5 AM. Talking about life, death and everything in between. Laughing over nothing and then hug you tight. One day you’ll meet someone and you’ll forget all the reason you have given yourself not to fall in love. You’ll let your guard down and you’ll begin to shift your schedule around that person. You can’t help to experience a thing without wishing they were there to see it too. And later on, they’ll break your heart.

Just when you finally begin to plan something, and feel like you know what direction you’re heading in. the paths change, the sign change and the wind blows the other way and you are lost.

You are lost, and that’s okay. Everybody lost at your age. No worries. Cry as much as you want, that makes you human. Being hurt is the part of growing up, darling. It’s okay to make a mistake. Mistake done only gives you a lesson learned. You can be anything you want, no one has the right to tell you what to be or do, not even the media influencer. Your body and mind is yours to control. Be your own kind of beautiful, you will thank yourself later.

If one day you meet someone who takes you for granted, don’t be afraid to leave. You’ll be okay. Be tough, but do not let bitterness steal your sweetness. And remember what I told you in the first place; “Be kind, for those who harm you will always banish in time.”

And one thing for sure: no matter how hurt you might be, you will always find out how to get up after the worst drama, you will love again. I promise.

 

XO,

S
