“Because through you, I learned what it means
to love myself, and how I’m worth living.”
My eyes are open now. And I see the world in Technicolor. It’s not the same monochromatic, muted tones that overshadowed my existence for as long as I can remember. It’s like a veil was lifted. You. You taught me what it means to love and be loved, not used and abused. You taught me the difference between a loving hand and a fist of hate. You gave me the courage to face my demons. And though they are immortal, I have the strength to keep fighting. Because through you, I learned what it means to love myself, and how I’m worth it. I’m worth living. I’m worth being loved. I am. And I always will be.

I’m worth it.
And so are you.
