When I find a caregiver someday I want to:
Give them so many cuddles
Do something to make them smile every day
Talk to them when they feel sad
Pick wild food for them
Pick flowers for them
Take care of them when they feel ill
Be kind to their family and friends
Give them kisses!
Encourage them in all their goals
Be a safe person to confide in
Bring them little presents
Work on myself to let as much love in as I can
Always be willing to help
And I'm sure lots of other things I can't think of right now!

Children don't worry what they look like to others. They are 100% themselves. When we get older, we learn to fit in society by submerging those parts of ourselves that our culture looks down on. We don't want to be rejected by our parents. We don't want to be rejected by our peers. Growing up may include re-embracing ourselves even if we must stand alone.
Thank you for being here as I re-embrace the Self I'm meant to be.
(Note: I'm not looking for a caregiver right now. Please don't ask.)
