Dear 7 year old me…

Don’t be so scared. Even if it looks impossible right now, you can trust in people. You are beloved. I wish I could give you a big hug and let you know how strong and brave you’ll be. But I have to be honest! It will be a long journey. You will learn that pain teaches, and what does not kill makes you strong. Do you know what is funny? Things do not change so much. Even old in numbers, you will feel afraid many many times, but you will do it anyways. Like right now, even with so many traumas going on, you find reasons to go out and play with your friends. Even when everything is a mess, you have a smile and you believe that things can change for the better. I wish that you wouldn’t waste so much time in your life being insecure and lost about who you are. But you know what? This crazy mess will build who you are supposed to be. So, be a strong little girl, that will become a big storm, and believe me, You will survive and tell this story proud of yourself. The storms will build the most important relationship in your life. You will discover your true identity in Christ, and you will never be the same. You will learn that you never will be alone and the girl that hides yourself behind your mother’s leg. Cause your faith will be unshakable, and you will be unstoppable.
