To the girl who is struggling with depression, know that you are not alone. You have endless people that support you. Endless people who are there for you and want nothing but the best for you. I know that doesn’t make anything easier, I know it doesn’t help take the sadness and pain away. I want you to know that no one wants you to hide what you’re feeling. Your family and friends support you and no one wants you to submerge yourself with your own thoughts and feel alone because no ones should deal with depression alone. Everyone has felt a low at one point in their life, this time it’s time to let others care for you.

To the girl who is struggling with body image, you are not alone. There are plenty of people who hate the imagine looking back at them in the mirror and that is so heartbreaking. You are more than just your body. You are your laugh and your smile; you are your eyes and your hair. You are your brain and your personality, and that is why people love you. Because of who you are as a person, not because of what you look like, because you are so much more than what you look like and you should be proud of who you are as a person. Every bruise, every scar, every imperfection you find on yourself tells a story and makes you who you are. Be proud of yourself.

To the girl who is struggling with an abortion, know that you are not alone. You are still young; you still have your whole life ahead of you. You can’t feel guilty about the decision you’ve made because you did what you thought was best for you in your situation. I’m pro anyone who is pro-choice. I think it is only fair you do what you feel is best and if that is an abortion then so be it. You have to take care of yourself first and foremost.

To the girl who is in an abusive relationship, know that you are not alone. You probably already know this because you constantly hear about people ripping your boyfriend apart. People want you to be happy and you’re not when you’re with him. You owe it to yourself to be with someone who lightens you up, who makes you a better person, who loves you with their whole heart. I wish you could see what I see from my perspective, but know it will be okay and you are not alone. It might be hard now, but things will get better once you free yourself from his chains.

To the girl who doesn’t feel good enough, know that you are not alone. You are good enough. You are here for a reason, you turn someone’s bad day around, you make someone laugh when they’ve been crying, you have a greater impact than you believe. Never think you are not enough because you are. To someone you are their everything and they couldn’t imagine their lives without you.

To the girl who feels alone, know you are not alone. I know sometimes it feels like that isn’t true. You feel like it’s you against the world, but sometimes all you need to do is ask. Ask for someone to talk to, ask for help, or maybe even just ask to go to lunch with someone. As many bad reps as humans are given there are still a lot of good ones out there. Know that you are never alone, there is always someone you can turn to and if you don’t believe it you just haven’t found them yet.
