A Letter to Myself

Last year, on January 1st, this question came to me, “Sad girl, why do you stop me from doing things?”

This year, came a letter to myself:

Let this person
be
who she needs
to be

If she was not
allowed this when
she was very small

It may be difficult
for her to
find her way
through thickets
of tearing
terrifying brambles

Give her space
Give her encouragement
Give her compassion
Help her to hold herself
accountable to
herself

Provide her with
tools to heal her
wounds and
her delusions

So she can feel
the warm sun
on her skin
smell the sweet
fresh air as it flows
into her lungs
taste freedom
through her sincere
journeying
and realize she is not
missing
a single thing
