Dear my once upon a time,
You think you’re absolutely ordinary, but do you know why I put you on this pedestal?
To me, you are above everyone. Yes, you have your flaws. And I’m not gonna say, “I love your flaws”, like every cliché you’ve ever heard. Honestly, I hate them. But I love you even along with all of them.
You showed me that even if it doesn’t come to you the way you expected it to, love is love, and it’s great. You showed me how much power there is even in vulnerability. You were everything I wanted and even though for a brief period, you gave me everything I needed. You loved me right and showed me how to love right.
But the biggest reason I’m so thankful for you?
You built me from the ground up. When you were here and when you were away, you taught me how to be brave. You showed me that I am all I need to survive this. And now, whether you’re here or you’re away, I’m not afraid of anything.
I don’t know if you think much of me, but I think the world of you.
I’m finally fearless.
