To JP and others struggling

-I want you to know that you’re my hero… you may not understand why right now.

-I want you to know that I think you’re amazing… you may not see that in yourself right now.

-I want you to know that you’re not alone… you may think there’s nobody you can turn to right now.

-I want you to know that I hear you… you may not think that anyone is listening.

-I want you to know that I believe you and I know none of it was your fault… you may still think that people will blame you or think you’re not telling the truth.

-I want you to know that their actions had nothing to do with you and that they were the ones with the problem… you may have believed them and thought there was something wrong with you.

-I want you to know that you are beautiful and your life is meaningful and precious… I know that may be hard for you to see right now.

I want you to know that no matter how much pain you’re in, no matter how hopeless you feel, no matter how much you want to give up, and no matter how much time it takes… I will always be here for you.  You are not alone.  Your life is not pointless.  You deserve love.  You deserve to feel safe and appreciated.  YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
