These are some of the words that have been used to describe me in my life. They were given to me when I couldn’t take ownership. They are finding their place within me, slowly, difficultly, but con-sensually, one by one. Affirmations are worth my time. Self-deprecation is harmful. These things I have been told, I heard, but they are only now resonating to come alive within me. I need them most now. They are only now in the works of being appreciated for all they’re worth — and they’re the most priceless reminders I own. Your words have given me life again… they will serve me the best now. I will remember more as these make way in for good. Thank you, because your words have truly been the makings of me. Your lasting love and unshakable faith in me was more than I could handle. Too many people have cared about me more than I cared about myself, all along the way your words/care/support kept me. This world is full of false reasons to forget about you. This is all grace.
