My dear, We're slow dancing in a burning room

Day 30, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go 

I will let you in on a little secret... I think that eyes are the windows to the soul and that scares the heck out of me cause then that means people can see me and I don't like that at all. I have spent my whole life building walls cause life has stabbed me in the back one to many time. And it was just easier to build my walls and hide behind them. Thank you for helping me come to realize that you can’t run from life and you can't shelter your self from it.... you have to keep going. It will hurt sometimes and I will stumble but I have to know that in the end I am me and no one can change that. I am learning to let go and just live life. I think looking in your eyes was the hardest because you cared that much (lol) and you made me see how afraid I was. I have decided fear is not a way to live your life. It is always hard when you have that one friend that is bold enough to step out and show you your flaws and not hid them like everyone else. I hope that in my new life at college I can have many friends like you who will help build me up so I can become a better person. You know how to make the small things important and you appreciate everything. I know you didn't know you did this for me but you did and I honestly thank you for it.
Last night I went through my old external hard drive and found some precious this.  What even was I doing at 17/18/19. What even is this pic and those glasses.

Letting go: I'm letting go of the girl who wrote that back in 2006. I don't know when she crept up on me but she has no place here now and it's time that she go. 

Consider this my goodbye that was long overdue and never sent.

    I think we all go through that period of not liking what we see in the mirror. But, like you have done, we CAST that doubt and fear away and EMBRACE WHO WE ARE!

  2. Amazing. I wonder who the girl was but she made some pretty decent point.
