I will neither allow the words to leave my lips nor let them fall on deaf ears and turned backs. So I turn to my stencil and begin to write..

I cannot love you, or respect you, or appreciate the lessons your presence provided (yet), but I will commend you and give credit where it is due.

Because I am that person. Regardless of what you think you know.

So, for all the success you’ve found and the success you’ve yet to create… for all the goals you’ve met and the ones you’ll inevitably achieve… for all the battles you’ve fought and the ones you’ll eventually conquer.
