I have always wanted you to be proud of me but have not had the strength to do what I know is right. I have gotten so far from the path, I feel like I will never find my way back. I have gotten far from friends, from family from any kind of security and far away from love and happiness. I have been so afraid of being hurt, I shut everyone out and now I am alone. Please give me strength. Please shine a light to lead me back. Please allow me to open my heart again and be a kind, loving person who inspires happiness in others before it is too late. Amen.
