Another one dedicated to my little fighter:
Of course you’re not perfect. Show me one person who is. If everyone was perfect, the world would be a pretty boring place. And perfection is subjective anyway. In the eyes of some, you are perfect and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
All those imperfections are what makes you, you. And you are you. And it’s you that so many people love because you’re you. Don’t go changing; well not much. Just try to keep that cat at bay because every time she gets to you, she gets to me and others as well.
Why do you get so much thrown at you, you ask? Sometimes it seems that way, I know and I speak from experience. You only have to read through this blog to see how much I’ve had to deal with in the last year. And that’s just the last year. Previously there was much more: loss of a marriage, an engagement, two children, a business and a home. I hope you don’t have to deal with any of those and I’m trying to place things in perspective. There are plenty of people who wouldn’t have coped with all that I’ve had to. When I’m in philosophical mode, I sometimes wonder if the reason I take it all is because I can? Because I’m strong and if I take it, it saves someone less resilient from having to.
You’re strong too little fighter. There may be many battles and some you’ll lose but you will win the war.
Remember also that you can’t please all of the people all of the time. You can only do your best. Don’t put yourself down just because you don’t do quite right for a few people.
You think no-one loves you: lots of people do. More than you realise.
Keep your head up kid. I know you can swim, you just gotta keep moving your legs x.
