Don’t Lose Yourself

Dear Someone,

If you found this letter and you are having a hard time, feeling like you’ve lost yourself instead of finding yourself, mentally and emotionally drained, and are scared of getting hurt again, that means it is for you. I am sending you this letter in the very final moments of my last evening of this glorious year 2019. I do so with so much gratitude and amazement. It is been an awesome year, and I am so excited to see what 2020 will bring for you and me.

His Ability Outshines Your Inabilities

Dear Someone,

This year might not have been all that you want it to be. It might not have been a great one or your very best. It also might not have been the best year for you financially. It’s even possible that you are in one situation or you about to enter one as you read this letter. It’s possible that there are those you would have loved to have around you in this season of celebrations but for one reason or another, they are either out of your life or they are far away. Among us are many that are hurting; many that are in silent hell in their marriages; many that are in their hospital beds and many that are out of job and not sure how they are going to pay their next bill.

Forgive Yourself And Begin Again

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is looking back at your life in regret instead of looking forward. You that is looking back at your life and can’t identify the person that you have become. You that is looking back at your life and realizing that in a quest of making everyone around happy, you have lost yourself. For everyone that’s looking back at their lives and seeing a series of mistakes and sins, for everyone that’s looking back at 2019 and thinking that 2020 will just get worse up the same, this letter is for you. I don’t know if you are a follower, but I am glad you stumbled on this letter. It’s also a letter for me, to realize how much I have done and what I have become.

Life Is Not A Straight Line

Dear Someone,

I don’t know who this is for, but understand me well as I type these words.

Your current challenges are not there to kill you but to build you up. They are not there to stay but to pass. Your current challenges are not the most difficult thing you’ve ever had to face — acknowledge them but do not live in them. Your mistakes are your own mentorship, they are part of your story — they are not who you are.

Irrespective of the turns and detours in your relationship, stop wondering and asking if they ever really loved you. Irrespective of the detours that life has thrown at you, understand that where you are right now is where you’re supposed to be. Understand that “Sometimes, your ‘Plan B’ is really God’s ‘Plan A’. And your “detours” are all a part of His plan for your life.”- Dr Sorke.

God Has A Plan

Dear Someone,

I just prayed this prayer for you, you that have chosen to love in silence just because you find no rejection in it. You whose friendship, love, help, and service was rejected and left with more scars. May someone hug you so tight one day that all your broken pieces will stick back together. May God give you the strength to press on from that rejection. May He teach you to know that every rejection is just a step to a bigger and better acceptance and may your next blessing far outweigh the emotional battles and trauma that you are going through in Jesus Name.

You Are Not Your Infertility

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is almost, always the only one without a child everywhere you go. You that the first question you are asked everywhere you go is, how many children you have. You that is walking the hard path of infertility and have gone through several IVF’s without success but still shows up to every baby shower for your friends. You that have lost your dignity after having too many sessions with strangers heads between your legs. This letter is for you, you that often watch your friends have a baby shower and not get invited because they were worried about how you would react.

You’re Not Meant For A Sissy

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that was left and abandoned because they felt there was nothing left in you. You that is almost choking to death on the thought of them being with someone else. You that is feeling like you are going to die every time it dawns on you that you are never going to have him or her back in your life again. You that have become your own blanket and your blanket has become you.

This letter is for you, you that is thinking that his or her heart may not have any space for you again. You that is still wondering how they can easily let go of someone they said they love the most. You that is making excuses and playing the victim card for the one that left you for another person. You that have come to realize that getting no message from me the one you love is also a message. You whose heart gets heavier day and night looking for how to get your ex back into your life.
