    A COUPLE OF YEARS BACK, I STUMBLED ON THE BIGGEST HEARTBREAK OF MY LIFE FROM A FRIEND THAT I LOVED AND CARED FOR AS IF SHE WERE MY YOUNGER SISTER. FOR WEEKS I WAS NUMB AND IN PAIN. BARELY DID I KNOW WHAT WENT WRONG, WHAT IS IT THAT I WAS NOT ENOUGH FOR? I DECIDED TO SHUT THE DOORS OF MY HEART SO DAMN TIGHTLY SO THAT NO ONE COULD SEE THE SCARS OF A SOBBING HEART. YEARS HAVE PASSED, THE SCARS STILL REMAIN. STILL THERE ARE DAYS WHEN I FEEL IF PEOPLE ARE ALLERGIC TO UNADULTERATED LOVE OR IS IT ME WHO WOULD NEVER BE ENOUGH? THERE ARE DAYS WHEN I WANT TO SHOUT MY HEART OUT, EXPRESS MY OVERWHELMING LOVE OR MY UNSPOKEN DESPAIR, BUT THEN I WOULD ALWAYS ASK MYSELF HAS ANYTHING EVER BE GOOD ENOUGH? IN A WORLD FILLED WITH PEOPLE WHO'D EITHER CONSIDER YOU TO BE TOO 'PROUD' OR 'GULLIBLE', ANYONE WOULD HARDLY KNOW OF THE BATTLES THAT YOU HAVE FOUGHT. FOR THE HEARTS FILLED WITH PAIN FROM THE PAST, UNSPOKEN FEELINGS AND SELF-DOUBT, HERE IS A NOTE FROM A HEART THAT IS ONE OF YOU: One day, you will be more than enough for someone. One day you won't have to fear meeting your eyes with the one you love just because you fear disapproval, one day they won't see your gullible, but see your valiant side. One fine day, you will be more than just good enough.
