In an effort to remain somewhat loved by you guys 😂 I will refrain from posting my thank yous after every +100 follower milestone. However, I did want to acknowledge that we got to 500 today! Wow! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Why am I posting these thank yous besides that it makes me feel good to show my gratitude to you all? I'm posting them because I know what it means to be invalidated and to feel invisible. I know what it means to help people, give them a hand and get them on their feet and receive 0 acknowledgement. A few years ago, I attempted to take up writing again...and sent just one poem to someone who meant the world to me. I wonder how my life would have been had this person encouraged me on my path. Instead...I was ridiculed due to the simplicity of my poem. Truth be told, I was also a different person back then, lacking confidence in more than one area, but that attitude and that reaction was my number 1 deterrent to start writing again. And so...I wanted to say thank you and welcome to all our new follower friends because I want you to feel seen...and I want you to know that you matter to me! I have pushed harder and harder these days with my writing because of all of you. So, thank you again! If there is a dream still alive and kicking in you...forget about your age, your present situation (financial, martial, etc), follow the heck out of that dream and see where it takes you! I survived high-school due to writing and I am beginning to survive my father's death, as well. My father passed away a month ago and I started writing again to deal with all the pain; little did I know that my pain compass would change direction and find other places in my heart in need of healing as well. Thank you for supporting my writing, because indirectly, you are supporting my healing. Yours in gratitude, Madalina 🙏🏻 3 ♡ 1 ✍
