    MESSAGE TO A FRIEND


    Wake up Red. You don’t think I know, but I do. I know you’re not loving yourself the way you should. I know the happy you, but it’s been a long time since I’ve held her. You’ve taken on many forms as I put my arms around you, all of which I love and desire. But I’m looking for the you that loves you. We are one in temperament, so I can safely say that some times a pill or two can help a situation, but an entire bottle of pills can only cause more pain. I know pain too. The pain of loss, the pain of disappointment, and the pain of regret. All have been my teachers. And each of the lessons seemed more difficult than the last. I wish I could take away all your hurt, but I can’t. All I can do is make a suggestion. Use your pain as an affirmation of life, of self awareness, and of self potential . For too long we let the actions of others determine how we feel, but truthfully the only one you can account for is you. That is if you love yourself. That is if you cherish you . That is if you know you’re more precious, and more priceless than any diamond ever found. So wake up Red. I know you, I know people who love you, I know I love you, and I know the you that loves you. Please wake up.

    This really felt like it was from the heart. Hopefully a heart will read, reflect, and act accordingly. Sounds like this was from a true friend.
