I confess that I was really unsure of What i could give you for your 43th birthday.
In the end I decided to make you small modified images and a pathetic letter where I express my feelings and gratitude to you, I warn you that I am not good at all with feelings in words.
I start immediately by saying the classic but significant phrase "without you I would not be what I am" because, technically, it is the truth and I will list some reasons:
1) You made me strong, confident and specially happy when I felt that I could no longer be any of the three.
And for this reason every time I think I won't make it I will draw a butterfly on the end.
2) You made me understand that I must never be content myself by leaving my happiness aside and that I can change what does not make me feel good.
So I will do everything possible to get out of these two big prisons that do nothing but hurt me, but that are a little better with you.
3) You made me understand that I don't have to give up even when it seems impossible to go on, you made me able to believe in a future where i could only see the dark in. In fact, thanks to you now I see my life as I have always dreamed of it: possible and not so far away. Because you never gave up, when you had that "dark period" and you fell down, you got up and continued to fight, returning stronger against life and whoever forbided or Will forbid you to live it. And for this I will never give up, I will think of everything you have done to get where you are today, the battles you have fought and won and I will tell myself that if you have make it, why shouldn't I?
This is why I want to tell you that I am proud of all that you have been, of all that you are and of all that you will be ...
I hope you will spend the best birthday of your life and that there will be many others.
Happy birthday gee, Aaron 🖤
