Dear Child

“Dear Child,

Sometimes on your travel through hell, you meet people who think they are in heaven, because of their cleverness and ability to get away with things. Travel past them, because they don’t understand who they have become, and never will. These types of people feel justified in revenge and will never learn mercy or forgiveness because they live by comparison. They are the people that don’t care about anyone, other than who is making them feel confident. They don’t understand that their deity is not rejoicing with them because of their actions, rather he is trying to free them from their insecurities, by softening their heart. They would rather put out your light than find their own. They don’t have the ability to see beyond the false sense of happiness they get from destroying others. You know what happiness is, and it isn’t this. Don’t see their success as their deliverance. It is a mask of vindication which has no audience, other than their own kind. They have joined countless others that call themselves “survivors”. They believe that they are entitled to win because life didn’t go as planned for them. You are not like them. You were not meant to stay in hell and follow their belief system. You were bound for greatness. You were born to help them by leading. Rise up and be the light home. You were given the gift to see the truth. They will have an army of people that are like them and you are going to feel alone. However, your family in heaven stands beside you now. They are your strength and as countless as the stars. It is time to let go!

Love,

Your Guardian Angel”

actions-words
This week I learned that people don’t have the same capacity for love that I do. I will never expect anyone to be as genuine as I am ever again. When people say they’ll always be there for you, but they avoid you like the plague when you need them the most, that’s not okay. Or when they turn on you like a rabid dog because you’ve crossed some unknown boundary you did not know existed. If you’re a real friend, don’t say you love me unless you truly know what the word means. If you’re a family member and you say it, please know that from now on, I’m not going to believe you unless I see it for myself via genuine actions. When words feel empty & hollow, it’s probably because they are. I’m not demonizing anyone, but I’m also not going to be anyone’s emotional punching bag. I may not be perfect, but I’m also not some evil, calculating bitch either.
