A Personal Letter
The Path To My Soul

by Meylyn
(Pasig City)

I am writing you guys this letter to tell you how hurt I am.

Will you please stop expecting too much of me?

You pressure me too much especially whenever you think I should be perfect when deep in my soul I feel I am broken.

Can you guys repair me?

Because you judge me too much that sometimes your words make me forget to smile.

I have to comply to your words because everybody appreciates me only because I'm smart.

Do you think I'm useless without it?

Now I don't know how to be,
my soul is locked up in your hands.

Note From Annie
Meylyn, this is a beautiful heart rendering letter, I hope it is OK I made a few edits to make it easier to read.

You may feel you are only valued for your intelligence and how well you perform, but you are so much more.

No matter who judges, or who speaks words to you that hurt, you have to cradle that part of you that feels broken.

Your healing comes from within, not from others, and though your journey feels lonely and difficult you have to love who you are despite the hurts.

You are clearly a creative, sensitive soul, and you need to hold a vision of yourself smiling and loved despite what goes on around you. Nobody can take your smile unless you let them.

Their words most likely do not intend to hurt - most people think they are helping by expecting a lot and by pressuring you to succeed the way they think you can.

You are the one who will choose your path in life, you can use your intelligence and creativity to serve your highest vision of yourself. You may not make choices that others understand or want for you, but you have to believe in yourself and make the best decisions for you.

Go gently,
love Annie :)

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
