I know you’ve been slowly losing yourself lately. I know you feel like you’ve fallen too far into your mistakes that you can no longer get out.
I know you slap a smile on your face each day and pretend that nothing’s wrong. I see the walls you’ve been building around you grow taller and thicker every day. I hear you cry at night. I know you fear each day so much that you can barely get out of bed in the morning.
Honey, enough of that. You’ve survived too much to give up now.
It’s time to remember who you are.
You are beautiful, even if society tells you otherwise. You are strong, even if life gets to be too much sometimes. You are kind and the world needs you. You are worthy of everything wonderful, even if other people can’t see it.
You deserve to be loved, including all your cracks and fissures. You are brave and you can do anything. You have so much potential in you, enabling you to reach any dream. You are entitled to speak your mind, because your words have the power to touch hearts.
Can’t you see? You are more than enough. You are loved. You matter. Remember who you are and be who you’ve always dreamed of being. Stand up and start right now.
