Look, I’ve been through so much terrible shit. Shit that other people can’t imagine. Shit that will break a woman down. And yet, you know what? I still have hope. Cause here’s the thing: There are good folks out there, and some of them will want you in their life. They will love, cherish, and respect you. Their love might not be perfect, but it will be better than this, and I want you to have it. It’s yours.

This quote makes me so very happy.

Yes, I wrote this. But based on the number of young men and women who read this blog and reach out to me, I can’t emphasize this enough. I actually have to remind myself of it, too. You are worthy of love and of happiness. It’s true.
