Happy New Years, Te-Erika!

I hope this new year really gives life your dreams and goals! I don’t know if you remember me…last year I wrote to you about getting rejected to the Disney College Program. Te-Erika, you showed me even more emotional support than my own mother and sister have. That means so much. I have an older sister who doesn’t know how to push me forward without criticizing me in a judgmental way and amplifying all I’ve done wrong while she silences what I’ve done right and YOU, this stranger from Youtube have done a better job at being supportive than she did as my own flesh and blood.

I struggled with thoughts of suicide and depression for such a long time. Your videos taught me how to clarify my wrongs, yet not allow them to define me. You taught me how to think magic

I just want to thank you so much. I don’t know if you even realize what you’ve done for my spirit, it almost brings me to tears. I’m amazed at how I once felt so at the bottom with this weight on my heart. And now that weight has lifted off of me, like fog rising above a lake. I look at it and I’m so grateful for a presence like yours, which helped me be apart from that weight. I used to be a lonely girl who was in the middle of something I didn’t understand but thanks to a kind, gentle, firm stranger with this vibrant compassion to contribute, that “something” I was in is now a story of my past 🙂 What a gift.

I’m a true fan. 🙂 God bless!
