I hope you never have to know what it feels like to be in my shoes.
I hope you never think that your kids would be better off with someone else, someone who can give them the best of everything, because you failed them. Because you failed yourself.
I hope you never have to hear your parents tell you how ashamed they are of you. Or what a disappointment you’ve become.
I hope you never have to feel as scared and alone and hopeless as I have.
I hope you really appreciate your good job and having a great education. It’s no small accomplishment earning a degree and amassing 15 years of experience in your field. I don’t have either of those things and it makes life more difficult than you can imagine.
I hope you never have to struggle to find a decent job.
I hope you never have to give up everything in order to support someone else’s dreams and goals.
I hope you never lose your way.
I hope that you never have to chose between buying something that you really need or spending that money on something fun for your kids.
I hope that you can always afford to take them on trips, to the movies, and out for meals.
I hope you never have to worry about how you will keep a roof over your kids heads.
I hope you never have to wonder how you are going to afford groceries AND gas for the week.
I hope you continue to be successful.
Most of all, I hope that you find some happiness again.
