Dear Brave Girl,
I know how easy it is to fake a smile everyday when you're surrounded with friends and family.
I know how easy it is to tell everyone that you're okay. Show them how happy you are, when from the inside, you want to scream until your throat bleeds everything that you're holding within.
I know that it's easy to laugh at the tiniest jokes and wipe those tears when nobody's watching.
But when finally you enter your room and shut the door, all the happiness and the smile disappears.
You bury your face into the pillow, curling your body and cry your heart out.
Night feels darker and loneliness haunts you with the memories that are still alive.
You hug the pillow as tight as you could knowing that nobody is going to calm you down.
The feeling of turning into someone that you weren't supposed to, kills you little by little.
You feel hurt.
You feel alone.
You feel weak.
But darling, you don't know how strong you are.
You hide your feelings, you keep them to yourself because you don't want to be a burden on them.
You pretend to be happy knowing that who you're with, are also going from one sort of a problem or maybe other.
You share your happiness for them to forget their sorrows.
You think about them and care about their feelings.
And when someone gives you a goodbye hug, you hold on a little longer this time feeling the love and warmth.
You're strong enough to shine brighter. Strong enough to fly higher. Open your eyes beautiful lady and take a look at things from a different perspective.
Broken doesn't make you weak. Cry your heart out. Let everything that you're holding inside, come out. So that you can reload yourself with what you're missing. And now when you look into the mirror, smile at your reflection because you Survived!
