As much as I want to say that I hate you, I hate that I love you. You’ve brought a lot of people into my life while taking the unnecessary ones out. You’ve put my dream on hold just to steer me down a different path in hopes of helping me grow. You’ve brought a lot of heartbreaks over niggas that I couldn’t claim my own. But most importantly, you’ve taught me growth and humbleness.
The Lord knows I was the least but humble. 2016, you sure did put me in check multiple times and as much as it hurts, I really do thank you. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be able learn how to literally pick myself up and put myself together when life got rough. If it wasn’t for you, I honestly don’t know where I would be.
I honestly don’t know what 2017 would bring but I am ready. These last couple of months, I have been the happiest I’ve ever been, I actually have a crush on a guy that can maybe turn into something (please pray for us y'all), and the place that I am today. The only thing I ask of you 2016 is that in 2017, please continue to help me grow and feel free to put me in check when I need it. I look forward to writing this letter again in 2017 but until then, thank you 2016!
