To my 3 year old self,
I don't remember you but I know you are still in there somewhere hiding in the dark corner of my mind scared and alone because of all the things you have seen and experienced. Who can blame you!? It's not fair you know such fear, pain, and heartache at such a young age!
I know you don't believe me when I say You are 200% NOT TO BLAME nor do the things you have experienced define who you are! You are a child of God worthy of love, value and protection!
You are loving, kind, giving, stubborn and mischievous. (After all You are a fiery redhead whose name means lioness.) You don't know it yet but God has mighty things in store for you. All this pain, fear, and despair you are going through is going to mold you into a STRONG mighty warrior for the Lord!
You are free! Free to play. Free too dream and to CHASE after those dreams! Free to take back what was STOLEN from you! Free to give yourself a VOICE! Free to CHOOSE when, where, and how you come out of hiding! I promise you whenever you decide you are ready, you are safe and I will be here waiting for you with open arms.
