A Valentine's letter to me ten years ago
First and foremost you will survive. There are a lot of things that will happen to you, sadness and heartbreak and major life changes that you feel have broken you. But I promise the light is just around the corner.
Baby girl will survive those horrible teenage years. She is a good kid underneath all that and she just didn't know how to handle the heartbreak any more than you did. It was her way of coping. She hurt herself first so that no-one else could hurt her. Wasn't that what you were doing too?
