Anonymous Love Letters


the-second-pile-of-love-letters-for-the-streets

This thought hit me today.  The thought of anonymous love letters.  How many of us who are depressed need to hear from others that we are loved and there is something special about us?  Answer:  EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US!  So, I am going to start this.  We will see what happens with it. It may go viral, or it may not.  I really don’t care.  I just want each of you to know that there is a reason we need to keep on living and fighting our battle with grief and depression.  I want to spread some love around to bring a smile to someone who is hurting just as much as I am.  So here goes…

The rules:  Pick as many bloggers as you want.  Say something nice about them, their blog, etc.  Bring a smile to their face.  Spread some love to them.  Lastly, I know this is going to be hard for us.  We have to say something we love about OURSELVES.  I know this is VERY hard.  But, let’s all think of at least ONE thing we like about ourselves.  This is important to us in our healing.  Here I go with Anonymous Love Letter #1:

  1. My newest blogging friend Fighting Like a Teacher:  I love how we are complete strangers who just met on this website a few days ago, but I feel so connected with you.  My heart goes out to you as I understand what you are going through.  I love how honest you are on your blog and unafraid to write about your past and pain.  I really look up to you for that.  It takes much courage in order to do that.  Keep up the wonderful writing and I look forward to giving you support through the years as I know I will be following your posts regularly!  Sending you many thoughts, prayers, and hugs today and always!  ❤
  2. This is a shout-out to the blogger My Made-Up Hard Life:  First of all, can I say that I love that you are able to still run amid the pain and anxiety you are feeling right now?   I REALLY look up to you for that.  I haven’t touched my running shoes since I found out my father died.  So props to you on that one!  Way to work out some stress!  Second, I love how you find the courage to truthfully write about your therapy and what happens in your sessions on your blog.  Many of us like to keep what happens in therapy locked up inside of ourselves, so I really appreciate your bravery.  Keep fighting your fight and don’t give up.  I know that it can be hard, but there are things about you that your family loves.  You are special!  Many thoughts sent out to you!  ❤
  3. Shout out to graspingwhatmatters:  I am so sorry about your recent loss.  The early stages of grief may be hard, but with support you are able to endure it and plow through.  I want to tell you how incredibly brave you are for journaling about your grief and posting it to your blog.  My therapist made that an assignment for me, but I couldn’t do it.  It was something I didn’t want written down on paper.  So, I never did it (besides starting this blog).  Therefore, I really look up to you for that.  It takes great courage to be able to journal about it.  I am sending you much love and many thoughts, prayers, and hugs today and everyday.  You are not alone in your grief and there are people who understand.  ❤
  4. A Guiding Voice:  WOW.  Can I just say thank you, thank you, thank you?  You constantly remind me of what I need to be reminded of (that God loves me).  No matter how down I am, your blog and posts remind me that God is the reason I am here.  That I may be in pain, but God can carry me through.  You set my eyes back on the big picture and remind me that God is here and He will provide.  Thank you so very much for that as it is a reminder I so often need.  Many thoughts, prayers, and hugs send out to you! ❤
  5. Sanity Not Included:  Another thank you I want to send out to you.  I feel like you completely understand my depression and anxiety.  Your comments and likes on my blog really give me AWESOME insight and help me think through my depression, instead of just live in it.  Thank you so much for challenging me to see outside of my depression and grief and giving me support.  Many thoughts and hugs sent out to you! ❤
  6. Cows Are Beautiful Creatures:  My first fan email was received by this young blogger.  She is an amazing blogger that writes posts I can easily relate to.  I want to thank you for all the support you offer me in comments and likes as it means so much to me.  You are a wonderful person and I look forward to reading more of what you have to say!  Thank you again for all your support.  Many thoughts and hugs to you! ❤
  7. Myself:  I have to really look up to myself for being able to live with my depression and grief, as well as fight through it.  At times it is hard for me to think about being able to take another step or breath without my parents here, but I do it.  I manage to live.  That takes strength.  So, I am stronger than I feel.  I also have to look up to the fact that I am able to write about my pain for everyone to read.  It is not easy to do and I cry when I write sometimes, but I do it to let others know that they are not alone in their grief and depression.

I have MANY more Anonymous Love Letters to write, but this is just the start.  I have to get writing on my thesis, but more Anonymous Love Letters will be sent out to other bloggers by me.  Help me spread the love and send your own Anonymous Love Letter to another blogger.  Let them know that they are not alone.  You never know, you may be just what they need today.  Let’s help complete strangers! ❤
