Thank you for not giving up Jackie.

Dear Jackie

How are you doing? I hope you are doing well. I know life has been tough but you have done quite a good job to stay alive. Thank you for not giving up Jackie.

Life is not a straight line, it goes up and down. If you are sometimes happy or sometimes sad, be glad because this is life. If you don’t want these ups and downs in life, then that is as good as wanting death.

The challenges you have gone through, and those you will face in the future, may break you down. It makes you think about your self-worth, your weakness, and your failure. This devil will try to hold you from walking toward your goal. It is like a dark cloud full of negative thoughts that turns even darker every time you look up to find a hope.

During our past life journey, I’m terribly sorry that I was not great enough to ignite your motivation. Was not good enough to encourage, to appreciate you. Sorry that I allowed you to hang your head down low. I was not all ears to listen to your problems. Didn’t stand up for you.

I left you floundering on your own, to rely on love and encouragement and strength from others and from strangers. When it was I who should have held you up. When it was I who should have hugged you and praised you and appreciated you for the wondrous person you are for all the beauty and life you bring to this world.

But behind these dark clouds There is a bright blue sky waiting to shine on you once you blow those clouds away. The same goes to these hardships. While you are looking for help to unlock this hardship, you also learn something. Nobody can help you but yourself.

Have you noticed that you have changed? You have. You have improved. I am glad that you did.

Hope you are more confident to stand up and rise up to challenges. I hope you stop comparing your life to that of others. Tell yourself that your life is perfectly imperfect. At the end of the day, it is all about yourself. Always learn to love and appreciate yourself before you want to be accepted or loved by others.

I seldom tell you how much I love you. How much I admire you. How beautiful and caring and intelligent and strong you are. That you are my hero.

Future is something that keeps you anxiously awake at night. So someday in 2 or 3 years, once you come back to read this letter. I hope you will feel happy that you have followed a path that you are proud of. Which allows you to understand yourself better.

Together WE are enough. WE will conquer this new future. I got you and this time and I’m not letting go ever. I will put you first.

I will respect you and honour you and cherish you.

Love for eternity,
