A Letter To A Friend

“Whenever we decide to change, we meet resistance. We are always challenged to see if we are serious . . . “

-Andrew Matthews

A Change of Heart

A change of heart is the essence of all other change. The more you find the truth about yourself, the more you will be set free– free from improper evaluations of your worth; free from false pride that seeks to cover recognized flaws. One cannot function at an optimal level with a tired mind and body. At times you need to take time to renew your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energies. I know you have had an arduous journey. You’ve climbed many mountains that you could’ve easily turned away from. Like many of us, you have so often misconstrued your own will and felt sacrifice and suffering is what you deserved.

Sacrifice and Suffering

Sacrifice and suffering are the building blocks of character, but we cannot let them define us and take our power to resist. In your mind you have free thought. Ahora, it is time to speak in the same way. Your spoken word must conform with your heart. This you need for your personal sense of unity. This you need for your strength. For a house divided against itself cannot stand! Neither can you, so long as you bear one testimony in your heart and another in your tongue.


Through my personal journey I’ve come to realize I could never truly and unconditionally love someone without first loving myself. If I put all my efforts into pleasing someone else, I would become lost in them until I no longer recognize myself. As in all things, there must be balance. Loving anyone or anything to the detriment of oneself only leads to resentment. One thing is certain: above all things, the truth will always shine through.


Through a multitude of tests, you will learn courage. It does not matter the price you pay, but at any cost you must strengthen your character and gain the fortitude to endure. James Baldwin said, “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”


Be patient my friend. Hold steady through the days ahead and know that the trials and suffering are working toward glory.
