The Child that Got Away Part 11

“Adults have a way of speaking to kids; I know they have a cruel way of expressing themselves. They keep their rage and let it out on us. They speak like that because they are hurting within themselves so they find a way to hurt innocent people and children. You go through difficulties being a teenager, just don’t be too hard on yourself. I don’t know what else to say to you to convince you to come back. You’re the one that needs to make that choice. Think about the things I shared with you and see if you can remember, that will help a lot. It’s time for me to go now. I did what I needed to do, there is no reason for me to stay.” -Spirit

“Wait, does that mean I won’t ever see you again?” -Teenager

“Saying never is impossible because I will see you again, not in this lifetime but maybe in another.” -Spirit

“I don’t want you to leave, not yet.” -Teenager

“I have to, I did what I needed to do. My journey has ended and I must return home.” -Spirit

“What about me?” -Teenager

“Well, that is up to you and only you.” -Spirit

“What does that mean?” -Teenager

“What I mean is that you need to find your way and decide if you want to grow and learn or stay angry for the rest of your life. We all reach a point where we need to decide what we are going to do with our lives.” -Spirit

“I am afraid.” -Teenager

“I understand, we are all afraid of taking chances and getting to know ourselves and dealing with this world. You need to be strong within and allow yourself to hear the words of wisdom and knowledge that you brought with you.” -Spirit

“Can you stay longer?” -Teenager

“No, I can’t.” -Spirit

“Please, give me more time.” -Teenager

“I am sorry but I can’t, my time is running out. You must face things on your own. You will find out who you are able to trust and who you can’t. Everything comes with a lesson, that is how we learn. I gave you lessons, let that open your door and the rest you have to do it on your own. I still will be with you in spirit. Don’t give up and fight back in a positive way. Show yourself you have it in you to stand up and face what you need to face. Conquer it and keep going on until your last breath on this earth. Fulfill your journey and enjoy your life. Be happy, find love and peace. Share with others what you have learned in your lessons so in return they can teach you too as they share their lessons with you. It might be negative and it might be positive. Whatever it is, it will be all right because everything will connect.” -Spirit

“I am sorry, I never meant the things I said to you. I know you were just trying to help me and I didn’t respond to you at all. I realize now that I can trust you and I can believe in the things you shared with me. I am so sorry that I see it too late. Knowing that you’re leaving me hurts. You’ve been so kind to me and took the time to teach me many things. You helped me realize the pain and hurt I carry within me. I never had anyone care for me the way you have.” -Teenager

“That is not true, you do.” -Spirit

“Who?” -Teenager

“You. You need to learn how to take care of yourself and learn how to love yourself. Remember this, you have the power and courage to make a difference in your life by following your path. Never allow anyone to take you away from that. Many will try to make you feel something is wrong with you or say you’re crazy.” -Spirit
