To Yvonne With Love

Dear Yvonne, I know things are not as you want them to be.  I know you are hurting in silence, for so many reasons that to list them, would take an eternity, and well, we just don't have that kind of time.  You are a good person.  You are a kind soul.  You worry too much about everyone, but yourself.  Family means everything to you and when one of them is hurting, you feel their pain too.  You always want to make things better for them, your loved ones, your friends, your coworkers, the stranger you spot on the street.  But that's you.  The essence of who you are.  Remember when people would tell you that you lit up a room whenever you walked in?  Or how you had an aura that drew people to you?  I know you never believed them but they were telling you the truth. You have always loved with your heart. Your love is real and intense. You never stop to analyze or question it, you just love.  Go hard or go home is the best way to describe it.  Like I said earlier, I know you have been hurting lately.  I just want you to know that it's ok to fall apart, it's ok if you don't "fix" everything.  It's even ok that you  feel like giving up at times.  But what is not okay, is to actually give up.  That's just not an option.  Not for you.  You are a beautiful soul and a gorgeous woman with an amazing heart.  There is too much for you to do with your life.  I just wanted to remind you of that because you keep forgetting.  Besides, if everything was easy, life would be boring.  Breathe Yvonne.  Deeply.  And exhale.  You're going to be just fine.                                                                                                                                        Sincerely,                                                                    Your inner-self
