A Reminder That I Will Always Be There For You

I have always carried you close to my heart, even before your eyes saw the light of the world.

Every day I get to watch you grow older; I get to watch you slowly turn into a woman. Before I know it, you will embark on your own journey without me.

I brought you into this world to love you, to teach you, to mold you and to get you ready to go out in the real world to start living your own life.

No matter how far you go, no matter how old you are, just keep in mind that I will always be there. 

I cannot give you the solutions for all your life problems, nor do I have answers for your doubts and fears, but I will always listen to you.

I can’t tell you what decisions to make in life, but I can only trust you to do what is right.

I can’t predict your future, but I’ll support you and help you along the way so you can reach your dreams.

I can’t tell you who you are or who you should be, but I will always love you as you are.

I can’t stop you from falling, but when you stumble, I’ll help you get back up on your two feet again.

I can’t stop anyone from hurting you, but I will always comfort you and make you feel better.

I can’t stop the hurricane from coming your way, but I can prepare you to be ready to weather out the storms.

I can’t stop you from failing, but you will find out that your mistakes will become the greatest lessons.

Life will be tough, but you will always make it through. I have faith in you.

This is a reminder that when you’re hurting, I will always be there to take some of your pain away.

I will always be there to guide you the right way when you find yourself lost and the road to take is uncertain

I will always be there to give you the wisdom you need to make the right decisions whenever you’re confused between right and wrong.

I will always be there to give you the strength to fight the battles that lie ahead when you find yourself feeling weak.

I will always be your light so you can find your way out when you fall into darkness.

When you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, I will always be there to lift some of the weight so you don’t have to carry it all by yourself.

When you feel heartbroken, I will always be there to mend the broken pieces back together.

This is a reminder that if you ever want to run away from the chaos of the world, you can always come home. I will always welcome you with open arms. You will always have a place to go to.

Even though you can’t take me wherever you go, I just want you to know you will never be alone in this world because you can always count on me. I will always stand by you. I will always love you. I will never leave your side. I will always be there for you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
