To my former self:
You were so strong when I needed you.
You took the brunt of the pain we have lived through all these years.
You made living our life even remotely possible.
You did what you needed to do to get us to this point.
Now, you can rest.
Now, you can let me drive.
You have given me my spine of steel and I promise no one will hurt us again.
I am strong because of you.
I’m proud of you.
I love you.
