I know I’m who I am today because I knew you…

I’ve realized today that I wouldn’t be who I am today without the help of people in my life…

People change people

People bring out the best and sometimes the worst in each other…

But there are those rare and special moments where you realize that you’re being changed for good…

I thank each and every one of the people that have come into my life and stayed and those who have come into my life for a short while and left…

You all have made me the person I am today…

Mom and Dad

Brothers

Cousins

Boyfriends

Husband

Friends

Best friends

You have all affected me…

Changed my life…

Made me stronger in the midst of trials and tribulations…

Made me realize that my strength is buried deep inside me and the way to get it out of me is to look deep within and realize I can do it…

I can make it through…

In those moments where I thought I wouldn’t be ale to make it another day or make it to the next day because I felt like my life was falling apart before me and no one or anything could fix what I was going through…

That’s where all of you were…

With your hands held out to me…

You all were there to show me that I am not what I think I am but what I will become…

I am not a mere ghost of who I was in the past…

There is more to me than meets the eye…

I am a warrior and it took meeting you all to realize it…

One person in particular has made me realize a lot about myself I didn’t know…

I can be a jerk and a really bad one…

I can hurt people and leave when things turn out really badly…

I can not care or care too much…

I can hold things against a person for who knows how long or I can just as easily let things go and forget…

I can be sorry or not sorry…

I can sugar coat things and try not to hurt your feelings but I can also get you angry to the point where you will want to kill me…

I’ve also realized that this person has taught me that if you want love you have to work for it…

That it isn’t something you just get handed in a silver platter…

Love, the real kind, is something you work at for as long as you want it…

It’s never easy and it takes hard work and dedication to make love flourish and thrive…

For the longest time I thought I wasn’t worthy of love…

I have a lot of bad habits and things I wish I could change about myself but he’s showed me that regardless of everything someone as ugly as me can be worthy of a pure and true love that I never felt before from anyone…

I think the kind of love closest to the kind of love he’s shown me is the love my family has for me…

Regardless of how I am and who I decided to be and the life I decided to live they love me…

I know at the end of the day we will make it through anything because we won’t give up on each other…

Thank you Luis for everything you’re doing and everything you’ve done for me even though you know I am not the easiest person to love or care for…

Thanks for slowly but surely changing me for good…
