The letter to Tiz, from Tiz
I don’t know whenever you will read my letter, Tiz. To be honest with you, I find it strange and nice when I decided to write a letter to myself for wanting to say something important to myself.
Here I go…
I want to say how much I am proud of how much you have been thriving as a beautiful human being as of right now. You have accomplished your personal goals where you want to be right now.
Look at you from 2014 to the present…it is a big difference between who you used to be and who you are now.
The countless mistakes you made…they made who you are right now. Oh, yeah. Failures only help you to do better.
A lot of accomplishments you made…you have been working so hard to accomplish your goals…your effort is worth it. Pat yourself to say to yourself: “You are badass!”
All of the hardships you have been…they made you stronger and wiser than before.
I am so happy you are still alive…Damn, I am really happy! You never give up on living your life on your terms.
I am so happy you keep believing in yourself no matter what. You know it.
If you can dream it, you can do it. — Walt Disney
You made your dreams come true…it was all you…it is still you who only can do it.
You should be so proud of yourself…you are embracing yourself for who you are right now. You are showing a lot of love to yourself.
Your journey…your Deafhood…your process…all is beautiful. You are so fucking beautiful! You know I love swearing when it is positive! Oh, yeah, I got you smiling to yourself. That’s what I wanted to see. Forgive me, Lord, for swearing often. I still swear, which is who I am. You see me and I see you. (giggles)
Again, I want to remind you…don’t let shame take you over because of your journey of finding to be yourself again…it takes a lot of courage to show your vulnerability and authenticity to yourself and others who you love dearly. Especially to God. You did it! Don’t stop being honest to yourself ever. What else you would lose? All you have is you. And God as well.
And I am so fucking proud of how much you have thrived this far. I am looking forward to watching you thriving every day from this now.
I love you so fucking much, Tirzah!
P.S. Let me treat you a bubble tea today since you read my letter. (winks)
