Dear Ellehcar Elleinad
It’s funny, because on the outside you have this hardcore shell. This nonchalant disposition. This let it roll off your shoulder, nothing bothers you demeanor. This “imma do me” attitude. But what the mirror doesn’t see is the real you. The Rachelle that cries at the drop of the dime. The Danielle that would give her last, if it meant making someone she loved happy. As much as you say you don’t care what people think, truth of the matter is you do care. You care too much at times. It hurts you when people have the wrong perception of you. If you’re completely honest, the whole reason you agreed to this 30 day challenge was so that people could get a glimpse of the real you. And you’re slowing allowing her to peep through…It’s okay, trust me. Not everyone will try to use or abuse you. Let people in. Don’t be so quick to look for a way out. Nobody’s perfect, including you. You have to let go of past hurts and live for today. You walk around with a smile and pretend that everything is okay, when at times you’ve been crying on the inside. Don’t you think it’s time for you to actually be as happy as you claim you are? It’s okay to be yourself. Even if you are a crybaby. LOL You don’t have to hide your true emotions. After all, crying isn’t a sign of weakness, but since birth it’s been an indication of life. Now it’s your time to live. Go after all your dreams. I’m sure you can accomplish anything that you set your mind to. The road ahead may not be easy, it may even be nonexistent, but that’s not an excuse to quit. You can do it! I believe in you! I’m so proud of the woman you’ve become. Here’s to the next 25 years!
