and I have to say, again, this is a remarkable community of people. There is one entry to me that I think has been edited,and someone, who said they were “proud” of me …when I first read it I broke down…has deleted their account.
But in general,
three five years later I can look at those letters with some distance and compassion, partly because of this place and the acceptance I’ve found here.
I’ve saved copies, including the comments & cheers. Thank you again. I’m going to delete the letters. I’m just not ready to have them show up on facebook or wherever. ((hugs)) to all 2 years ago
Dear Younger Me:
You are about to embark on a challenge. You are more than ready for it. You have enough time. You have found those who will help you on the journey. While you will despair that you will ever make it through the challenge, at the same time, you will form relationships that will last a lifetime. Memories that will last a lifetime. It will contain some of the best times of your life. So don’t despair. The task at times will seem endless, and insurmountable. You will gain, however, in nearly every measure, by the time you have seen the whole task through.
You are loved and cherished – don’t forget that. From here, 2012, blessings to you, and blessings to all who support you through this journey. 12 months ago
