You Is Kind is written for a blogger friend who is suffering.
You Is Kind
Even though we live so far from each other, and have never met we do have a strong connection. I read your posts and know how hard it must be for you to face each day. The past constantly comes back to haunt your mind….the trauma of it is something you keep re-living…..Added to that is your present situation which makes it so hard to carry on.
It’s easy for me to say, “Hang in there, everything will be alright”. I am not facing your reality. I don’t have to worry about putting food on the table, even as I struggle with the past ….You do. Yet, in every interaction we’ve had you’ve been nothing but kind and understanding….You are highly intelligent and very articulate ….Your ability to reach out to others who have suffered abuse as you have is touching. You are a very powerful voice for victims of sexual abuse (especially) and domestic violence. Having lived through this you know their pain, and can articulate it.
Today, I know that you are at the point of giving up….but there are so many of us who are willing you to carry on – to see the beauty inside you that we all can see. To come out of your shell and truly shine….And I know, if you make up your mind to do it, you will….
Today I borrow from the character of Aibileen Clark from ‘The Help‘…these words were introduced to me by Plum Doodles, just now…..But I knew they were meant for you…..
