I will not leave.

To: Someone in the valley of life

From: Someone who has been there… A lot

You are not alone. Wow, I almost made myself laugh! Saying that is so cliche and I know it means absolutely nothing to you because right now you feel the most alone you ever had been. I know this because I have been there. More than once, I have been there. I also know that because you feel alone you will begin to give up, on life and on people, and begin to push the people who truly care away.

But, you can’t push me out no matter how hard you try.

You can ignore me, not take my advice, do whatever you want to do, but I’m not going anywhere. I didn’t have someone to fight for me. I didn’t have someone advocating for me on this earth showing me there is a better life right ahead, if only I could just keep fighting a little longer. I will be that person for you. I will continue to tell you that you are important and you can curse me, ignore me, and hate me. I don’t care what you do to me because I’m not leaving you in the dust like other people did to me. You deserve more because you are worth it.

I know you may not see it now, but I will walk with you in this dark valley and I will still be right next to you when we reach the peak of the beautiful mountain right ahead of you.

I love you and you are worth my time, always.
