She wrote, “I hope you’re truly happy and not pretending to be
I hope you’re rich and successful and not pretending to be
I hope you’re truly nice and kind and not pretending to be
I hope you truly love and know God and not pretending you do
I hope you’re not breaking inside but pretending to be strong
I hope your heart and soul is not filled with pain but pretending your life is perfect
I hope you’re as okay as your smile, dressing and demeanor makes you look
I hope you’re not a battered, unhappy girlfriend/wife but pretending to be in love, well treated and lucky to have him in your life.
I hope you’re not holding on to people who don’t deserve you, and realise that your value doesn’t decrease because someone doesn’t see your worth
I hope you’re strong enough to let go of things that hurt and break you instead of holding on to it and dealing with so much pain
I hope your job gives you fulfillment instead of struggling through it every day
I hope you believe in yourself and continue to chase your dreams.
I hope your life is as great as you make it look on social media
I hope you appreciate the things in your life; like family & good health
I hope you’re okay with making mistakes instead of faking perfection
I hope you know that you matter and your life counts
I hope you sleep well at night and not have to drink or cry yourself to sleep
I hope you have peace of mind & your soul is not tormented or in turmoil
I hope your demons don’t push you over the edge
I hope you don’t pay attention to people who don’t like you and try to bring you down and concentrate on those who do and try to lift you up
I hope you’re wise enough to know who your true friends are
I hope the enemies who want to come between you & your blessings, fall and die by fire
I hope you’re truly your authentic self and not pretending to be someone you’re not and forget who you are
I hope more than all this, that you’re living the life you prayed for and if you’re not, at least that you’re living a decent life and working towards making it a good or a great life.
This is the only chance we get to live. Just this one time. So pls don’t EXIST…LIVE! You owe it to urself!
