Thank you so much for taking the time to read my letter. Although we have never met I want you to know you I am so honored that we are spending the holiday together! My hope for you going into this holiday season is to be filled with joy, happiness, and all the wonderful food you could want. Myself and so many other people are standing beside you every single day. It is an absolute honor to be apart of your journey as you grow into the amazing, wonderful, beautiful person you are. I hope to see you for one of our holiday feasts. Complete with a roasted bird, awful dad jokes, and questionable side dishes that people eat to be polite.
Come sit around and play board games with missing pieces where we just make up the rules anyway. I want you when it is time to pick teams. Although you probably don’t want to be on my team. I have a tendency to lose a lot, especially when it comes to games that involve drawing.
I can’t begin to understand some of the hardships you’ve endured. I hope that you are safe and comfortable and don’t have to walk around with your guard up. I’m sorry if people close to you let you down or hurt you. You are not an outcast, you are loved by millions of people. Surround yourself with them. Find beautiful people, who are kind, encouraging, and compassionate like you are. Know that it is ok to cry and be sad, don’t push things deep down inside of you. I encourage you to reach out to someone and talk to them. We’re here like we’ve always been and will always be.
I want you to know that I will be thinking about you this season and always. We may not be blood related and there may be distance between us, but you will be in my thoughts. Wishing and hoping nothing but the best for you.
So please, continue to be you. Discover your self and don’t let the negative stand in the way of your dreams. Remain kind and let your light shine brighter than the sun. Share your light with others. I will always support you. You are so incredibly important to me and I can’t wait to see you achieve everything you’ve ever wanted.
I love you, and I wish you all the success in the world! You are the best sibling I could ever hope for.
Much much much love,
Your Brother Nick
