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.
