I know you want to live a beautiful life. I understand how dilapidated and dejected you feel. I know you often feel trapped with emotions of overwhelming sadness for a long while no matter how difficult it may seem to overcome.

Your situation could seem like an overwhelming, endless, and helpless situation but I want to let you know that I care about you and I once wore that shoe. Most importantly, God loves you and you’re the apple of His eyes.
Remember that God has a great plan for your life and He accepts you regardless of how dirty your past might have been or your current struggles.
