An Open Letter To My Sister
You are my person; the bearer of all my secrets, the yin to my yang. We mirror the same pain in different degrees, and we understand each other deeply despite our minute differences. I understand your heartache and internal doubts, and I want you to know I am beyond proud of how far you have come along. You are a wonderful woman and the man you are destined to spend the rest of your life with will be lucky enough to have such a free spirited soul like you by his side. I know you are going to be an outstanding professional, wife, mother, and aunt. Our anxiety sometimes gets the best of us, but I’m glad neither of us has to ride this wave alone. You are one of the few people that know how to calm me down in the midst of all the crazy. You have taught me to be myself, to talk to boys, to stand up for myself, and to see people for who they really are. You have taught me how to be strong when I thought I could not be. You kept me above water when I was near drowning, and no words I write could ever be enough to thank you for bearing my sanity. When I was sick, you helped me get through all the pain and sleepless nights. You helped me get through my first break up; and every time my heart was broken, you were always there to piece it back together.
When I cry, you are always there wiping my tears with your tough love. You are always by my side encouraging me to achieve my goals and go after what I want. As I grow up, I am thankful for having someone like you to look up to. Thank you for teaching me how to laugh at myself. Thank you for teaching me to be comfortable in my own skin, and for showing me my beauty when I could not see it. You are one of the strongest women I know, and the things you have faced have only made you stronger. Remember that a hill is nothing once you have climbed over mountains. I want you to know that you are deserving of a love that will free you, and a lover who doesn’t have to question the authenticity of his love for you. Keep planting flowers in the hearts of those who need it, as I will always be here planting flowers in yours. In a crowded room you will always be the person I look for. You will always be my person; the bearer of all my secrets, the yin to my yang. Thousands of miles apart but always together at heart. I love you.
