Yes, I called you a warrior because chances are you’re fighting an internal battle that no one else can see, and that makes you a warrior. You is strong, you is kind, you is important, and I see you. You are not alone. Whatever it is that's weighing you down, please don't fret. Recently, I realized that people treat you where they are, not where you are; in other words – hurt people, hurt people. Pre-pandemic me used to feel down whenever I was treated badly because I tried to take the high road ALL THE TIME but this new me ain’t about the bullshit.
