Someone I love deeply is under fire. Undeserving, but not unexpected fire. As I read the comments, I thought about who this person is. What a good person he is.
When you were little, you were so kind to others. You’re intelligence showed at the age of 3 when you and I were driving to Town at dark, and you were humming “Twilight Zone” as you looked at the sky, and smiled.
Well, the time you stole the money from your friends and brother, that was more out of madness, and I’m sure we can all look back on that and laugh. It was corrected. You were feeling pushed and didn’t like it. I want you to remember that time. How old were you? There is a huge difference between then, and who you are, with what you are currently facing. For one, you know right and wrong. You may not like them, but you are a law abiding citizen surrounded with those that know nothing of the person you are, or who you will be by the end of this.
The stabbing lies, the vindictiveness, I’m shaking my head as I’m thinking about it. Dear soul, you have been swimming with the likes of vultures, with that heart of gold of yours. You are by far one of the nicest, kindest people I’ve ever know. I am so proud of you, every day. I was so disappointed with what you settled for, but I’ve been there, too. And I’m sure, no, I have no doubt, that the spitting and vicious attacks will continue. Why? My dear child, it isn’t about you. It isn’t about you at all. It is about them. You just were “throwing pearls to swine”. They didn’t value you, they raped your kindheartedness, stole not only every cent you ever made, were given, but celebrated their own victories on your earnings.
I am so relieved to hear that you are making changes. I am proud of you, again. I’ve no doubt this decision was the hardest one you’ve ever made in your life. I know why you stayed, and one day they will, too. And hopefully they will not fall (more than they already have) to the likes of these, I hesitate to even call them “people”. Perhaps one day, they too will be relinquished from the evils, the spite, the lowest form of beings I have ever known. And I’ve known a few.
So, when they go low, you go high. There were many things I didn’t like about the Obama Presidency but I will say, this? This has stayed with me, and I’ve packed it away to pull out for the very times that you are walking through right now. You will get beyond this, because of who you are, and all of us who love you, and will help you find your way out.
Never ever ever ever give up. Even when you feel like it, and I’m here to tell you, my dear child, that you will want to. There will be days the snakes have surrounded you, and the evil will be so strong that you’ll want to not fight, but you will. You will because of the very two reasons why you stayed. You will never give up on them.
I love you more than I can say, and I am sorry you are in pain, and in this place, but I am so proud that you are here, that you are finally here, and even if for this one evening you feel your own worth, I promise you, you only recognize 1/200ths of your worth. You’ve been told and mistreated so, you haven’t even a clue as to who you are, or what you are capable of. But you will. I promise you. You will.
The past is the past, and it will sting for some time, mostly from the likes of those who only know how to piss, moan, bitch, and steal. Leaches, really. How many times have you EVER treated anyone like they have you???? And my wish for you is, you will never know this, and I don’t believe you ever will, because of who you are.
So you rest, and you do your best every day, in every way. When they start pissing on you, you ignore, and remember the two reasons why you will always be the better person, with morals, standards. You are a good person, and some part of you knows that. Some part of you recognizes that you didn’t deserve this treatment, nor to be in the likes of these snakes. Because you have walked in courage the last few days. You will never, ever regret walking in courage.
And when you have your doubts (and you will), you remember those who love you, and you lean to them to remind you of our worth, your strength, and what a beautiful, amazing person you are. Some of the best times of my life were with you. I love you. You’ve got this, and when you feel you don’t? We’ve got your back.
