Dear future daughter,
I hope you never feel the pain I feel. And I hope you don’t cry yourself to sleep at night. And I hope you never wonder if there’s any reason left to wake up in the morning and carry on with your life. I hope you always have a shoulder to cry on and someone to tell you that everything is going to be okay. I hope you never use sleep as a way to escape reality. I hope you never have to take pills to be happy or fall asleep. I hope you never cry in the bathroom between classes. I hope each morning you wake up with reasons to keep going.
