My Letter to the World

Dear World,

You may know me. You may not. If you do, you may know that my life has taken many twists and turns in ways that no one could control. If you don’t know me, well, I will change that.

Something that I have come to realize is no matter what you do or how hard you try, there will always be sudden changes that occur in life and you will have absolutely no say in the outcome. There will be times when you feel like there is nothing left for you, that you are useless, or that you are no longer whole. I know that when my best friend, my dad, passed away when I was just about to graduate high school, I felt just like that. And the person I leaned on the most was suddenly taken from this world as well, I had hit my personal lowest in life.

But you know what? Event’s as unfortunate as those are what make the world go around. And they make the people still left in this beautiful world even stronger than before. So even though there have been lows, there will always be higher points that will fill you with belonging and love. Because that’s what living is about, right? Loving, and being loved. So World, even though I don’t know everything about you, you have found things to love about me, so I send that love back to all of you.

Love always,
