I just watched Katy's movie Part of Me and I felt the need to come online and write to her personally:
I heard such great things about your movie, about how inspirational it is and I can't believe I just finally watched it. I loved it. I felt so connected to your story because I can relate to your sadness in your personal life.
I am 30 years old, my boyfriend of 7 years just broke up with me 2 months ago because he said we were too opposite and we were each others first everything and he looked at that as a regret, I did not. I loved him for who he was. He was not perfect, neither am I, but I truly loved him. It hurts so much to know that I tried so hard but he still chose a different path in the end and we went our separate ways. There is more to the story but I just wanted to tell you that I felt so drawn to you because I have always believed in love. Like you, I am a hopeless romantic, I want to be with someone that I'm excited to see everyday, to do fun things with, to laugh always, to have children with and to be happy with.
I hope anyone that reads this knows that love is out there. Even though I've been hurt, I'm not the first and I most definitely won't be the last. You should learn the lesson but don't let it change you. Stay true to who you are and don't change for anyone because someone out there will love you for who you are. It might seem impossible, but it's true. I have cried myself to sleep so many days that I can't count, but I will move on from this because it will make me a stronger person in the end. Listening to Katy's music helps so much, I can't begin to explain.
Thank you so much Katy for sharing your story with us, the world, you have truly touched my heart.
