“dear Self, 

you have been doubted, hated, talked about, made fun of, hurt, lied to, lied on, broken and at your wits end. 

with that being said, i commend you for the fact that you are still standing. your courage speaks volumes! 

i know your struggle and the pain you’ve endured. you are more than a conqueror. 

i am proud to say that your heart belongs to me. nothing can keep you down and no one can steal your joy. 

all of your storms have ended up blessing the sky with rainbows. 

don’t give up, continue to stand tall and love yourself first. 

you are appreciated, Self”

thankfull to the people who judged me, hated and laughed at me.

for the people who had turn their backs on me and lied to me and about me.
for all my friends, the real ones and to those which had prove who they really were.
for the love who betrayed me and for the love that I'll find.
to the little girl that I was, and the woman I am becoming.
for the father who forgot about me and to my young mother that had enough courage to save me.
for the Italian family that has accepted me for who I was, like their daughter.
for the hate I felt to myself to be “different” or “wrong” and to the self-love that i'm learning.
for all my past mistakes and to those I’ll make in the future.
more blessings are coming.
