From Our Readers: There's a Little Girl Inside All of Us
There is a little girl in me who likes candies, cakes, chocolates, anything sweet for she knows that sweetness can somehow ease the bitterness she has in her heart.
There is a little girl in me who loves fairy tales. She looks up to stories about happy endings, the ones about Snow White, Aurora, Cinderella and Ariel because she still hopes that one day, she too will find her very own Prince Charming and Knight in Shining Armor.
There is a little girl in me who wanted to become a beautiful butterfly, a butterfly that flies freely from one beautiful flower to another.
There is a little girl in me who misses the warmth of her mother, the strong but gentle grip of her father, and the happy memories from her childhood days. She believes that those days were the best because that's when she laughed heartily and freely.
Just like the little girl in me, I miss those times, too. I would have turned back the time if I could. I want to return to being a child when I don't have any of these scars and when I don't feel this kind of pain yet. It's hard, yes, but I'm trying my best to be happy. I will do what I can to survive and conceal these scars so no one can see it.
So to the little girl in me, you don't have to worry. I promise that we will get through this and one day, all the pain will be buried away; the only thing that will be left in my heart is happiness.
