Letters for the Future: Dear Ruby

Letters for the Future is a thing I have been doing offline for awhile now.  Parenting is hard — I’m trying to find my words as a mother and a role model to all the littles in my life.  Please comment or reach out if you have any feedback or strategies that work in your life.  Thank you for reading xoxo.

Your Momma shared the story about your friend recently informing you that he has moved on to new friendships. I just wanted to take a moment to reach out to encourage you to continue being the kind, open, and amazing person you have proven to be in your life.

I want to say that as you get older, it gets easier. That would be a lie. It took me a long time to realize that for every ounce of kindness you pour into someone, it is returned to you in one way or another.

You gave this boy the confidence to thrive socially. You did that. I am so proud of you for this accomplishment. You changed this child’s life. There is a certain level of satisfaction that could be taken from that, if you remain open to it.

Nothing will take back the hurt of his words, but just know you made the world a little bit better one person at a time. That’s superhero grade awesomeness right there.

I might watch too much My Little Pony… but friendship really is magic. Cheesy, I know, but the Ponies prove that laughter, honesty, generosity, kindness, and loyalty really are superpowers if you use them correctly. You can personally conquer just about anything if you commit to using your superpowers to empower others around you to be superheroes too.

The more you lift people up, the more people are going to be there to do so to you when most needed. For every door that closes, many more will open if you just keep a look out for them. Remember that as friends come and go in and out of your life.

Keeping that in mind, it is incredibly important that you continue to talk about these disappointments in life with someone you trust. It’s hard navigating through these complicated relationships alone, just know your Mom and plenty of others in your world are there to fill you back up when you feel empty and pick you up when you feel discarded.

Sending you loads of love sweet Ruby. You’re doing great things. Don’t ever give up on being a superhero <3.

Sincerely,

Che Angela
