Dear 17 Year Old Me.

Dear 17 year old me.

Well. What do you have to say for yourself?

You single handed ruined my life.

Because of you, I am impure. I will be called a slut. A whore. Easy. Stupid. Floozy. Sometimes even by the closest of friends.

Because of you, I will not attend a university. I will be stuck at community college and then drop out of online school shortly after my Associates.

Because of you, I will lose my faith. My relationship with God will vanish to almost nothing.

Because of you, I will lose multiple friendships.

Because of you, I will make every wrong choice imaginable.


Because of you, I am where I am now.


Because of you, my faith in Christ has been replenished.

Because of you, I have met and married a man who loves not only me but also God.

Because of you I have a career. Not just any career, but a dream job I never knew that would be possible.

You see, because of all the mistakes you made, I am here.

So thank you.
