I want to say thank you to the rare few individuals who walked beside in my darkest, bleakest times.
Who listened. Really listened. Without offering advice
Who told me this was normal, and I really wasn’t crazy.
Who let me rant and rave.
Held the rawness and the pain.
Who didn’t ever judge me.
Understood my brokenness.
Who loved me constantly and – always – unconditionally.
Who held a light up for me when the blackness pulled me in.
You know who you are.
And I truly want to thank you.
Your kindness made a difference.
You have helped me to survive.
