I write to you because if there’s anyone you should never forget to give love to, that is yourself. Remember that you cannot give away what you do not have. Your feelings have a tendency to get the best of you, but save some for yourself, no matter the cost.
Nonetheless, I am proud that you are slowly
and painfully learning to assert yourself. Short progress is still progress after all.
There will be many more dark days ahead, but there will be bright ones too; do not fret.
You’ve got this. You always do.
