I’m Proud Of You – By Trevor Martin


First off I really wanted to thank you, really.

The things you have done for me, you have watched out for me and always had my best interests in mind. I cannot thank you enough.

Ive seen you grow and once again, I am so proud to see who you have become. You have had your “times”, you have fallen to anger ,unfaithfulness etc, but one thing I can really tip my hat to is the fact that you always take the time to look at yourself. May take a week, a month, a year, but you will look at who you are and you will try to patch the holes when tears were made.

You have done everything in your power to search and try to understand the questions to life, God and reality. You want to know, and you genuinely want to help others do the same. When an ideal did not ring true, you left it and began a new journey to higher peaks. You try your hardest to not be the type that allows yourself to be placed in any boxes, and the ones that you did get caught up in, were short lived.

You have never followed the crowd, since birth you have been a man of integrity. You will not allow yourself to be swayed by large groups of people. Your mind has for the most part always remained in thought about the things YOU feel matter in life, never changing for anyone.

You always try to laugh and make the best of every single situation, you love to make people laugh and honestly its an amazing trait to carry, laughter, happiness heals so many things and I’m sure many are grateful for the joy you bring to them.

You do your very best to be kind to everyone, no matter sex, race, social status, physical status etc, you show people the utmost respect, a gift and trait not many in this world carry.

In the strangest moments, when all the world seems to fall apart, you seem to be so resourceful that you can build it back up in a matter of moments. You doubt yourself at times and forget the strength you have always had to steer your life in whatever direction you would like.

Nothing can ever be taken from you, people have tried, things have happened. But you have never been things, you let them go, and the moment you want to rebuild and have them back, you can almost do it instantaneously.

And even when love has seemed to be a fleeting word around you since childhood, you try your best to build a good view of what you think it is.

You are a great friend.
Neat and “clean”
A leader.

And last but not least you are doing your best to be the best version of yourself, no one can take that away from you, and that is one of the most honorable things anybody could ever do.

I’m really proud of you, you are doing great, keep up the good work.

A love note to myself.

– Trev
