I don't know who you are or why I had the sudden urge to write this. You could be anyone in the whole wide world. But for some reason, you were on my heart this morning. I haven't slept all night, and I guess staring at the ceiling makes one think about what really matters.

You're one-of-a-kind, you know that? Not factory-made, not mass-produced, not something but someone. Even if you're a twin or triplet, you're uniquely and wonderfully you. There is something about you that no one else has, and that the world would be woefully without if it were taken away. From the curve of your eyelashes to the barest hint of a smile at one corner of your mouth when you're trying not to laugh, you're a collection of little miracles all wrapped up into one special and wonderfully made package. Each of your cells custom-made, chains of DNA specifically forged and coded just for you. But you're more than science. You're tangible and intangible, physical and ethereal, radiating emotion and life from your mass and though you may not see it, you're an essential part of this world. You're not an accident, and you're here for a reason. Though it's sometimes hard to understand why things can be so hard, and you may come to question your very existence, you must never let go. Because with you gone, there'd be a black hole that'd suck everyone into a gloomy darkness, because your light would be irreplaceably extinguished. You may think you're unloved, friendless, rejected, alone, but you're never really alone. Every word and deed you speak and commit form a thread in the web of your life, and you never know how another person, invisible to you, may need that thread as a lifeline. So don't hold back; don't give up. Remember that people need you to be you and that you're not just a statistic, not just a name or a number, but a living breathing amazing person, someone who's part of something bigger than life itself. Times are tough, you may fail and fail again, but you must never stop trying. Never, ever. There are dreams waiting for you to discover, people waiting for you to come into their lives and brighten their days, and miracles waiting to happen. Just please, please, please believe. Because believing is what makes dreams come true, even if they're dreams you never knew you even had.

Please, I want this thing to infect the Internet. I don't care if you credit me or not, I want you to copy/paste this wherever you see fit and let people know they're loved and needed.

There's just too much apathy and coldness in the world. I'd like to at least let someone know they're not alone.

I second MsPyro's opinion. That's exactly how I've felt before.

I'm not sure what to write here because that just went into my heart, soul, and mind. I need to put this somewhere so I'll remeber it forever. Forever. It's beautiful and this will lift anyone out of there deepest dark because it just makes you feel good, nice, warm, I don't know glowy?

I love the way this was done. <3

I read the first line of the letter and immediately thought of V for Vendetta. I then proceeded to read the rest of the letter...and it was beautiful.

oh my loving god (and that is in perfect context) these are likely the two most beautiful paragraphs I have read in a loooooooong time. and that's saying something. Sometimes I have to wonder if clicking on yet another free verse poem or small chapter of a story is really worth it, because I find that people often make it hard to read, but when I see something like this it gives me a ray of hope for the future of inspired/inspiring writing. You have my full support, I'll put this thing all over facebook.

Tweeted, facebook'd, and shared it on my journal here. This truly is one of the sweetest, most touching things I have ever read. It's wonderful to read, and I'm glad you wrote it, because this world needs it. It may not deserve it, but it definitely needs it. I now hold a much deeper respect for you for writing this.
