Dear 🦋 Beautiful Butterfly 🦋… everyone admires your beauty. Yet, so many stepped on you when you were crawling. Now that you are flying, keep flying high. Enjoy the view up there.
In life, all of us go through moments where we find ourselves crawling instead of flying. Life gets dark when trouble comes. Circumstances become unbearable. Plans that once seem promising, even they will sometimes fall to pieces. Many times, the people in our support system – the ones we depend on – disappear. The calls never get returned. The texts go unanswered. The visits stop. It can be shocking. All along, we thought they were the ones who would be the dependable ones. “I know I can trust him or her, you said.” Yet, unexpectedly, they withdrew their friendship as if it was only contingent upon “all positives” with no room for trials or tribulations. Basically, they are fair-weather friends.
Don’t let it all change you. You don’t have to fake a good day if you are having a bad day. The people who love you will accept you at less than 100% because they know you are still being the real you. That is what matters after all. Be real. Be authentic. Be You! Don’t worry about trying to let people see your good side all the time, just let them see the authentic you. The “real” people will understand that you will periodically have good and bad days. They will love you through them all.
Sometimes, people won’t notice your tears. They won’t always notice when you’re sad and decide to cover it with a smile. They might not even know when you are going through pain and heartache. I guarantee, though, that they will always notice your mistakes. Still, be you… and don’t hang your head. Move on and keep growing. FINISH STRONG! Always remember that, GOD is with you… every step of the way.
